Gilford-Angling-Club

AN OFFER HAS BEEN MADE TO THE CLUB SECRETARY AND THIS OFFER IS; THAT I WILL VOLUNTARILY CLOSE DOWN THE SITE IF IN RETURN HE SENDS OUT LETTERS TO YOU THE MEMBERS ENCOURAGING YOU TO ATTEND THE A.G.M. IN DECEMBER (Date time and venue yet to be announced)


THIS WAS A GESTURE ON MY PART NOT TO PUBLISH FURTHER IRREGULARITIES WITHIN THE CLUB, AND AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CLUB SECRETARY TO INVITE MEMBERS TO THE A.G.M.

THE CLUB SECRETARY REFUSED THIS OFFER AND BY REFUSING SENDS OUT A CLEAR MESSAGE TO ALL THAT HE WANTS AS FEW MEMBERS AS POSSIBLE ATTENDING THE A.G.M.


I HAVE NOW RECEIVED A LETTER IN WHICH HE DEMANDS THE SITE BE CLOSED BECAUSE HE SAY'S THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IS NOT IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF YOU THE MEMBERS. AS IT CONTRAVENES RULE 15.


THE CLUB SECRETARY WHO WILL BE SEEKING RE-ELECTION FROM CLUB MEMBERS IN DECEMBER DOES NOT WANT MEMBERS OF THE CLUB TO BE INFORMED OF ALL THE IRREGULARITIES THAT HE HAS ALLOWED TO TAKE PLACE AND HE HAS GIVEN WRITTEN INSTRUCTION FOR THE SITE TO BE CLOSED THIS IS DESPITE OFFERING HIM HIS RIGHT OF REPLY AND THE OFFER OF PUTTING OVER HIS SIDE OF THE STORY WHICH HE HAS REFUSED TO DO


I HAVE NOW REMOVED ALL INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE ABOVE WHILST I SEEK LEGAL ADVICE AND MEMBERS ARE ASKED TO REVISIT THE SITE ON


OCTOBER 27TH


WHEN I WILL UPDATE YOU ON DEVELOPMENTS


IT IS HOPED THAT BY SHAMING THE CLUB SECRETARY HE WILL BE FORCED TO INFORM ALL MEMBERS OF A TIME, DATE AND THE VENUE OF THE FORTHCOMING A.G.M. AND HE WILL ENCOURAGE ALL TO ATTEND.

IF HE IS FORCED TO SEND OUT LETTERS THE GREATEST CONCERN IS THAT THE VENUE WILL BE SOME OBSCURE PLACE WHICH IS HARD TO FIND  MAKING IT AWKWARD FOR MEMBERS TO ATTEND.

THIS IS THEN AN INVITATION TO THE CLUB SECRETARY

THE VENUE FOR THE A.G.M. NEEDS TO BE A WELL KNOWN PLACE SUCH AS A COMMUNITY HALL, BAR, ETC. THAT IS EASY TO ACCESS, WELL KNOWN AND IN GILFORD TOWN AND THE LETTER NEEDS TO ENCOURAGE MEMBERS TO ATTEND

IT IS THEREFORE HOPED HE WILL RESPOND TO THIS REQUEST.


THE SITE IS NOW THE 'UNOFFICIAL' WEBSITE OF GIFORD ANGLING CLUB


IN THE EVENT OF A FAILURE TO RE-OPEN THE SITE MEMBERS ARE URGED TO ATTEND THE A.G.M AND VOTE ON A COMMITTEE THAT WORKS FOR YOU. AND NOT ONE THAT WORKS FOR ITSELF..

A NUMBER OF MEMBERS HAVE ASKED AND QUITE RIGHTLY IF I HAVE OFFERED TO TALK TO THE CLUB SECRETARY REGARDING THE CURRENT ISSUES AND IRREGULARITIES. WELL, I HAVE, AND FOR ALMOST 3 MONTHS THROUGH EMAILS, PHONE CALLS ETC. I HAVE OFFERED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS TO SIT DOWN AND TRY TO RESOLVE ALL OF THE ISSUES, BUT THE CLUB SECRETARY HAS EITHER REFUSED OR SIMPLY IGNORED ALL OF MY REQUESTS.
THE CLUB PRESIDENT ALSO TRIED IN TO GET THE 2 OF US TOGETHER, WITH THE CLUB PRESIDENT ACTING AS A MEDIATOR, THIS REQUEST WAS ALSO REFUSED, SO YES I HAVE TRIED TO TALK BUT HE JUST REFUSES. AS FOR WHY? WELL THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE HIM ASK HIM. 
ONE THING I HAVE LEARNT OVER THE YEARS IS THAT THE ONLY WAY TO RESOLVE ISSUES OR CONFRONTATION IS BY PEOPLE SITTING DOWN TOGETHER AND TALKING AND IN MOST CASES COMMON GROUND CAN BE FOUND AND A COMPROMISE CAN BE REACHED UNFORTUNATELY THE CLUB SECRETARY REFUSES TO DO ANY OF THIS. 
 AND HISTORY WILL DICTATE THAT PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO TALK USUALLY HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE.

THE CLUB SECRETARY HAS NOW EMPLOYED THE SERVICES OF A SOLICITOR WHO HAS REQUESTED THAT THE SITE BE CLOSED DOWN - AS MOST OF THE ACCUSATIONS ARE AGAINST THE CLUB SECRETARY IT IS HOPED HE WILL BE FOOTING THE BILL FOR THIS AND NOT THE CLUB.
IT HAS TO BE POINTED OUT THAT ALL INFORMATION PUBLISHED IS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CLUB AND ITS MEMBERS AS IT HIGHLIGHTS ALL OF THE IRREGULARITIES CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE AND THE SITE ACTIVELY ENCOURAGES MEMBERS TO ATTEND THE NEXT A.G.M.
THE SOLE REASON FOR THIS ACTION IS - THAT I AM FORCED TO CLOSE DOWN THIS SITE AND TO DEPRIVE YOU THE MEMBERS OF INFORMATION THAT WOULD LEAD YOU ALL TO MAKING AN HONEST AND INFORMED DECISION REGARDING THE RE-ELECTION OF THE CLUB SECRETARY AT THE FORTHCOMING A.G.M.

INFORMATION REGARDING ALL IRREGULARITIES ARE ON HOLD UNTIL THE 27th OF OCTOBER WHEN I WILL INFORM YOU OF WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING

AS STATED PREVIOUSLY THE CLUB SECRETARY HAS THE 'RIGHT OF REPLY' TO ANY OF THE ISSUES DISCUSSED
