Re: Think not what the ECF can do for you, but what you can do for the ECF

Equally, why is an individual gold member so obsessed to keep it secret? I'm sorry, Andrew, but you are getting very angry about a representative expecting to be told about how his constituents money is being spent and more to the point how the executive of the ECF is implementing policies determine...

Re: Think not what the ECF can do for you, but what you can do for the ECF

If any of Richard's arguments had been presented to Council by Malcolm they would undoubtedly have carried some weight and might have produced an interesting discussion. Howerver, none of these arguments were presented.

- if memory serves Michael Farthing had to step into the breach at short notice.
Lest anyone should be over-concerned for me I hasten to point out that I was not pinned to the ground by a large gang of ECF thugs until I agreed to take responsibility.

Well the World has changed... I suspect the problem will not be long in surfacing.
The world has indeed changed, and it isn't as if the ECF hasn't had to handle cases like this already. That you haven't noticed suggests the ECF has done a reasonably good job of it.
Well that's told me! :-)

While I have a tremendous amount of respect for the Silver representatives who are a party to this proposal; I do also see the hand of those who are pursuing their own agenda against the board.

Re: Champions' Names

1966 U14 Robert Cecil Bellin (you'll read RS Bellin but not according to Gaige) Title shared with Robert Woodford. I feel bound to point this out having contributed to Woodford's success by allowing him to beat me in Round 1. Incidentally, the bulletin recorded Bellin as just R Bellin without any s...
