Representation on Council and Funding the ECF

OK folks, I have my tin hat on. Continuing discussion on points raised a couple of days ago on the "ECF demands more money" thread, but starting a new thread as I think this is a much wider discussion. Appearing to argue against OPOV (go on, humour me - stop calling it OMOV!) democracy or the notion...

Re: ECF demands more money

We basically have the same concerns that we didn't feel properly represented which has clearly been exacerbated by the almost total lack of communication from the powers that be at the ECF. That, Chris, is a rather different point and not one I disagree with. This extends not only to Board Minutes ...

From this I see that (in round numbers) net income from membership fees in 2015 / 16 is budgeted to increase by £23k over 2014 / 15. Game fee income is predicted to rem...
