Re: Election Addresses for 2018 AGM

Hi Tim,
The National club has been scheduled for termination by Alex. In my opinion this heritage event never got the attention it deserves from the ECF. Once revitalised It would have great appeal to sponsors .
I would appreciate your thoughts on the issue .

Many thanks and good luck

Re: Rebranding

JT I do realise that this forum has a very limited reach but when the ECF post on this very forum about its wonderful re branding plans I reserve the right to comment when I see fit. Its the members who end up paying for these poorly implemented schemes after all.
