Yea – that is correct – it was me!
Some people just love to hear about the River Kelvin Angling Association – it is an association of anglers that is going from strength to strength. You see the thing is the association has totally turned itself around over the last couple of years – it was only a couple of years ago I was the main detractor on how the Kelvin was managed and then I decided to mosey along to the AGM as I made a telephone call to Euan Greer asking him why the hell was my name down as a committee member when nobody had contacted me in a couple of years. Any he told me some interesting things were afoot and I decided to attend the AGM.
What occurred was a total reboot of the association which comprised of: an overhaul of the rules, some changes to the constitution, better links being made with other organisations (pretty good stuff happening by the way) and the early formations of a bailiff force – if you were at the EGM you will know who the actual “proper” bailiffs are.
Sure the association still has its detractors however the thing to remember is that if you think you can do a better job you can always get yourself voted in to do it – don’t go thinking it is not a hard job though – personally I am glad all I do is hang around with the cool kids (and be forced along to countless meetings).
Anyway – that is enough of me bumming up the association – I just felt that for a couple of years all I did was complain about them and I think a job well done deserves a pat on the back that’s all. The association is now probably the largest fishing club in Scotland and is a force to be reckoned with.
If you are a member head over to the official forum to bombard the committee with questions and suggestions – if not a member you are out of luck I am afraid – as all the office bearers are totally voluntary they were getting bogged down from people who were not even members. This drastically cut down the time they can devote to members. Anyway – how many questions can someone actually have about a fishing club eh?
