We weren't impressed with the early part of the meeting; lots of profanity from one official who was in the middle of a huge personal disagreement with another member. It wasn't appropriate to air this in public, nor to speak like that as a club official IMHO, and I was about to raise a comment and leave as it wasn't the kind of atmosphere I was happy being in, but then the said committee member suddenly resigned and left immediately. Things quietened down some after that and met a load of new friends so it turned out to be a good day!
Hopefully the club wil be able to go from strength to strength and maybe we'll meet at a future event.
I must admit, I only joined because my insurer offered a discount that worked out to be worth more than the cost of membership, provided that I was in a club!
From what I saw happen at the AGM, I think that most of the "dead wood" has gone from the committee and I'm now more than happy to be a member and look forward to attending some shows next year....and still getting my insurance co's discount!
