A cruise or a club?
If you meant a club I can't see BIBOA supporting what would in effect be a competitive club.
If you mean a cruise - then why do it under the BIBOA umbrella? What value does that bring - I can do it via Ribnet without everyone having to fork out 50 quid for membership.
I'm not complaining at all. As I said previously I am providing some feedback which an open minded organisation trying to widen its membership might want to take on board. But if they are quite happy with their membership, and that they are percieved by some as a "big rib" club then I have no objection to that - and they should stop pretending not to be.
Having not been a member for a few years maybe there needs to be a SIB or small RIB committee member to represent their interests. Again it needs someone to step forward!
Yes - i'm not even sure if technically SIBs fall in their remit - although I am sure they would be made welcome. I am guessing they don't have too many committee meetings in Scotland though - so practicality would make you a better volunteer for that role!!!
