See the other place, I will not be commenting further on the matter but I will not be registering their either.Chris Fegan wrote:I can report that a meting took place yesterday at 4NCL between Bob Kane and Chris Fegan from the ECF and Carl Hibbard and Jack Rudd of the EC Forum. This meeting was arranged and chaired by Mike Truran.
A series of propositions were put by the ECF to Carl on a joint way forward but Carl said that he felt all of them were unacceptable to him and he preferred to remain with the current situation. Therefore although the meeting was not unhelpful, it was inconclusive and the ECF will continue to search for ways to improve the workings of the ECF Forum, better to serve the ECF Membership.
The ECF will not be discussing publicly any of the details of what was a confidential meeting.
The ECF would like to thank Mike Truran for arranging and also chairing the meeting and to also thank Carl and Jack for attending.
At the end of the meeting and as a gesture of goodwill the ECF lifted Carl's suspension from the ECF Forum.
Fine, the ability to wander around watching the stars was a little limited due to some space constraints and some big screens showing the internet coverage might of helped but otherwise as well organised as you can hope for.David Sedgwick wrote:How was your trip otherwise?

It rather sounds as if the ECF read out a list of demands.Carl Hibbard wrote: See the other place, I will not be commenting further on the matter but I will not be registering their either.
