Lotto Funding (Or Not!)

Our club has been looking into further funding from the Lottery foundation for Sports (some!) and Arts(some!) Apparently in our area now there is a list of sports, 20 I believe, that are funded up to 100% by the Lotto.

Here's the rub, ours, Diving isnt one of them. Now this would be easier to stomach if all the sports on the list were small low investment stuff that need the money but they arent. Football - duh! is one the list, granted its popular but isnt it propped up a monstorus professional organisation that is itself propped up by a huge industry?

As you expect we're not best pleased by this, before I rant on have other fora members had a similar experience to us when seeking funding from the lotto?

What we need is Codder's angle on this with some stats, how's the boat coming?

Our dive club looked into this some time a go to see if we could get any help in getting a new RIB, after all there were lots of other dive clubs getting money to get new RIBís, our secretary waded through pages & pages of paperwork before he found the stumbling block. The question asked who our governing body was? (i.e BSAC etc) seeing as our club is independent & has been since 1967 it would appear to them there was no such thing. So after lots of phone calls the outcome was, unless we joined the BSAC we couldnít get any help.

We're in BSAC, the mandate now applies to all clubs of the sport type not listed whether you have a national governing body or not. Thats what's inflamed everyone. Presently the maximum level of funding is 35% of your project the rest has to be raised by yourselves. Sports on the list and believe it or golf is, as is the previously moaned about football, can apply for up to 100% of the project costs.

Obviously only a cynic would think that its all about money and that there are inevitable and glaringly obvious tie-ups and crony-gravy trains around most of the larger "sports" that are little more than industries marketing a spectator event.

Well done Cod, you're a sport. I don't think I would come back for more as often as you have.
