My suggestion whether it be a cruise, event, whatever, was primarily to spread the word (max coverage) as many sibbers etc do not frequent this forum.
By all means publicise it in Riblines if that's OK with BIBOA, but making it a BIBOA event brings a lot more complexity and beaurocracy and stops it being an informal get together.

Don't let your membership lapse - we need you!
Why should anyone pay to be in an organisation that they don't feel gives them any benefit? The needs of the organisation are surely not relevant!
Quote:
Just because the name remains the same does not mean we boycott the club? It's the people, personalities, cruises and events that make the club - not the name!
I haven't seen any mention of people boycotting BIBOA because of its name. People join a club because of the perceived benefits, and generally renew their subscription (or not) based on how well it meets their needs or wants.

By the way (just in case it seems that I am knocking BIBOA) I wholeheartedly advise anyone with a RIB to join the club and go cruising, racing, eating and drinking! The price of membership is trivial compared with the cost of running a RIB and is well worth it.

Bravest of them all, Brian (Brian The Brave) in all 3.1m and 6hp, so far the smallest (but bravest) of us all. Brian the Brave, we salute you. Here is Brian practicing for the expedition in the swimming pool on board Cyanide!

Keith,
Definately probably still interested! Will depend on dates though as the next stage of the project at work is due to go-live during the Summer.
I'll be in touch and keep an eye on the threads.
Cheers,
Andy.
