Offwidth - on 18 Nov In reply to DingBat: You still haven't answered my question about how you contacted the BMC. Alongside, trying to get Dave to come home from his holiday and silly accusations of Mafia's in Manchester and effectively claimbing all those who signed the petition support your views, you also accused the BMC of ignoring you when you contacted them; I'm very surprised at this, so I ask again did you contact them with your real name and address? In reply to Offwidth: I have not told 'Dave to come home' from his holiday or made any such claim about the people who have signed the petition to reinstate the amenities at Harrisons.
In terms of my use of the term mafia let me give you a quotation from common English usage: After all, you have not elected me nor paid for my employment.
If you turn that on its head you your self might pose some questions on representation and accountability- which is exactly what this thread is about I think you represent yourself and the BMC has many members with views on priorities that will be very different to yours. You still haven't answered my question on if you used your real name and address to contact the BMC: I am unsure if you feel that this gives me ample 'right' to raise ongoing concerns on this thread.
I will go away and read the posting legislation in detail. How can golf be less of a sport than running? It demands fitness, skill tactical awareness and the ability to hold your nerve under pressure. Running around a track's something you could train a dog to do.
Golf's a proper sport, not just about being the best at exercising. Firstly, some had sent stuff to the BMC on this subject where they were not clearly identifiable as a member.
Secondly if you have written communication why did you say they didnt respond: It's not a sport, it's a game. If Hypothetically the BMC does not have an agenda for a meeting could an ordinary member provide one? Calder, Offwidth your opinions please? Offwidth - on 20 Nov In reply to DingBat: I gave the link to the SE meeting at the BMC communities section of the website on the other thread where minutes and the agenda are kept.
UKC Forums - Opening or closing the books for
For a regular attender you should know this. Well I'm sorry but I cant find an agenda and niether can anyone else by following your links. Could you follow your link and confirm that an agenda is available please. It seems pretty obvious that if there is no agenda published members 'ordinary members' rather than extra ordinary members; should be able to contribute to topicsw they want to raise.
After all us members shouldn't control debate least we be described a clique! Offwidth - on 21 Nov In reply to DingBat: What things are you trying to prevent. Try to convince me to vote to keep the books closed.
Show me the benefits of keeping the books closed. Share with us your reasoning. Why do you not want the books opened. I see no reason to mix the 2. UKC now has an X-breed program for those wishing to openly cross breed and they have all the benefits of the PR bred dogs as far as competing, sales etc.
Plain and simple keep them separate. If I want a redbone or walker I will get one.
If I want a mix breed I can get an x-breed. If I want I leopard I prefer a leopard.

I really believe the leopards have what is needed to improve internally. Unfortunately a lot of leopards are not in the public eye to the degree of a lot of the other breeds. Tell me what is wrong with finding a leopard with what you need and using it? If the leopards are in such bad shape why did you feel the need to choose and fix them? Posted by JohnCox on You know the vote no matter how its done will be the same at least for now I don't see it getting opened anytime soon.
I just don't see the numbers to make it happen as for the Ballot system going into effect its going to make the membership grow more then anything else folks have dropped out over the years cause they haven't been able to voice their ideals and this will let them be heard somewhat depending on whats on the ballot.
As for which meeting was it brought up at, and voted on to have it. I know of two different meeting it was brought up at. So it will be up to the info the President gets from the members for this coming year and the year it will be by the Ballot system.
What happens to the information that gets shared in an open forum like the meetings?
It will be lost. Where do we use the ballot system? All the business or just certain topics? Who decides what topics. My own personal experience has been a good exchange of information in the discussion part of meetings. I have attended meetings thinking I knew exactly how I felt about a topic. In the meeting someone brings up a point I had never considered and my mind changes.
John, Why are past members who have attended not showing up at the events now? Curious as to your thoughts.
I think the secret to growing membership is in strong leadership, hard work and keeping people connected. News letters, sectional hunts.
As you know I was heavily involved in the UKC change. It was not the success I envisioned.
