Kelvin AGM – Faith Restored!

This will be a quick post as I drove to the AGM directly from the airport and am currently sitting in bed writing this.

My faith has been resolved in that when the push came to shove the members of the Kelvin Angling Association agreed that the only way forward was to keep the current Office Bearers in place as well as vote on some new ones.

My faith has further been restored in that even the guys opposing were man enough to actually shake hands and agree to work together for the future of the river.

It has been a hard few months all round – personally I am glad it is now all over and certainly do not envy the office bearers jobs.

I have got to apologise for my language tonight and am sorry if it offended anyone – essentially before the vote of confidence in the secretary was made I stated:

“The decision that you make tonight will have repercussions in the years to come”

Um – I then added the river would be fucked if the wrong one was made.

Sorry bout that!

I will wait until something is prepared for the club website before I say anymore – personally I want to get back to writing in this diary and discussing fly fishing on the forum.

    was an interesting evening… the smell of bevy as you entered the hall spoke volumes about a lot of what went on….

    I`m just glad that the night went relatively well, with voting going the way it should. Let`s hope the venomous posts cease and common sense prevails.Well done guys. Peter.

    I reckon, all things considered, we can give ourselves a pat on the back for making sound decisions that will enable the association to grow and develop in a positive way for the future of the river. Hopefully, the future will see a much more cohesive approach with both members and office bearers singing form the sam page.

    It was good to see that apart from about three people everyone voted to keep Paul Reid in the position of secretary.

    Ray the meeting went well, if you went you would know that.

    Lets get ready now for the new season and stop the nonsense.
