Carl,

The club is exactly the same. The only thing that has changed is that the pillars who were once there are unable to donate as much time to the club as they once did (myself included). I am doing the best in the available time I have had, and gave the committee plenty of notice that I intend to stand down. Granted as 214Sei pointed out this has not been well communicated and I take that critiscm on board.

The only negativity seems to be stemming from yourself. Running events does take a fair amount of time up. I am some what dismayed to hear from Nigel that a regular on our club calendar was not booked (this will be the second time it has happened for this event under your leadership) along with the non-attendance where we should have had manned stands.

It is good that we have been accepted to the NEC this year, however as I have said we do need one core person who can man/take responsibility for the whole weekend or we need to let the NEC know that we can no longer attend. There are also numeous forms which need to be filled in and risk assessments which need to be undertaken to ensure the club is covered in the event of any incident.

No-one expects you to be there over the birth of your first baby, however what I do expect is you to be pro-active in finding someone who can man the stand as soon as you realise. That would have been as follows

1. Writing/sending me a mass email out to send (I can't send one out when I have not recieved the text to send).
2. Sending me an article for the magazine to advertise.
3. Asking Tom for the membership database so all members can be emailed over the matter.
4. Writing a letter to post to all members.

Infact none of that has happened, all that has happened is you have come on here to moan, be negative and stand down from events with no warning. Members don't want to read negative posts, myself included. We don't work all day to come home and go on a forum to see negative posts everywhere. What I do want is to come home, chill and enthuse about motors with others and look forward to future events.

Fortunately myself and Nigel intend to be at BL Day so will be able to hold the fort, however we will need to arrange to collect the stand equipment for the event if you are not attending.

Massive over reaction IMO. I don't think anyone expects you to miss the birth of your baby Carl!

You are of course entitled to do whatever you want. No-one has asked you to miss the birth of your baby, and I do appreciate that a new arrival will change your life beyond all recognition. That is much of the reason myself and lindsey have not been able to be as active as previously over the previous year or so. If you wish to resign I suggest you drop a note to the chairperson or secretary so they can start finding a replacement to ensure a smooth handover.

It isn't expected that the committee members have to turn out to all events, just that any shows that are officially attended by the club are well organised with people attending/organising the event and have the stand equipment also where practical. Obviously you can't force people to attend but making sure there are reliable people attending is usually a good course of action and you always plan for a few people to drop out at the last minute.

There are always instances where things stop people attending shows they intended to. I was supposed to attend the Mid Lincs show but my car decided to spit its wheelbearing out the afternoon before the show (the day I got back from my holidays). I let the club event organiser know as soon as I could so that people wouldn't be expecting me on the day. Its just polite ettiquette really and it isn't a regular occurance from me. I'm pretty sure noone will think any the less of me for it, these things happen.
