Website Confusion - A message from Ray - ed
The club are refusing to publish my response to the their latest comments regarding my Blog of 12th December. Therefore I have no alternative but to publish it here.
Good News, the financing was agreed, so the website continues.
The latest agreement regarding the continuation of this website took place during October.
Thanks went to the committee at the time for also agreeing to provide the finance that enabled this webmaster to arrange hosting of our popular site.
Then they reneged on the deal - Exposed, the errors of their guesswork and conjecture - Surely not?
The committee’s response to my blog of the 12th December is based solely on nothing more than inaccurate guesswork and conjecture. Therefore may I with all due respect suggest that in the future before they put pen to paper they check that their facts are correct.
The last agreement regarding the continuation of this website was approved during October, (that's why they agreed to pay for the continued hosting of this website site). In any event the committee cannot possibly be aware of the original commitment as none of them were party to the meetings. The above facts are beyond dispute, I have all the evidence and minutes to prove it.
Edward has not left school as the committee suggest. My statement at the time was as follows: - ‘Edward is about to move to Dubai, although he is now 18 he has received an excellent offer of a two year scholarship before going on to university’. That means he has received an offer, not that he has taken up the post. Clearly there is a difference between being offered a post and accepting or taking up a post before his schooling has been completed.
Furthermore, the suggestion that I am using member’s data is a blatant lie; once again the comment is completely inaccurate and based solely on guesswork.
Given the circumstances of his appointment it is totally unreasonable to expect him to drop the site and try to find another project at this late stage of his education. If there is confusion or irritation as claimed then that is not Edward’s fault.This unfortunate situation is due to the consequence of the committee reneging on it's agreement, some despicable treatment and a callous attitude by some committee members.
The club committee are in no position to lecture me regarding the interests of the club or accuse me of mischief making which does nothing to help the situation. Edward came to the club's rescue in 2012 when it was without a website, but what thanks does he get; none whatsoever from some selfish members. Furthermore, some committee members simply don’t care about the problems they have caused him.
I guarantee one thing; the committee members’ stance on the subject would be totally different if it was their grandson who had been treated so despicably by the club.
