The National Body General Discussion section is exactly that, a section for all of us to discuss the National Bodies and what they are up to.

Please bear in mind that this is an open forum and your posts can be read by all members. If you are in a position that can be compromised by what you are saying on here because someone takes offense and tells your colleagues or your sponsor and that in turn means you are being punished for your posts on here, think before you post!

Was mulling the paperwork and CV's for these elections and was totally disappointed at the quality and brevity of the CVs. It was as though they weren't trying to get members votes in fact some said more about their disciplines than their suitability for the job. They were all Bisley centric and only one mentioned shooting beyond Bisley however when I saw that candidates proposers even that person couldn't get my vote.

It is all well and good to say be in the organisation and make a difference but when their is no choice and a total lack of quality of candidate it does make it seem like a waste of time.

It struck me how like our general elections it was, no choice, just the same sh!te packaged in different coloured paper.
