    We all have 3 votes so there is room for more than one 'improvement'!

    Cheers,

    John.

    Alasdair Mitchell has always came across as a decent down to earth fella to me.

    Usually his written stuff if well worth a read.

    Agreed. BASC’s gain is sadly the NGO’s loss. He is a good man to have on any side, and unlike the duplicitous politico speak of some I could mention, tells it how it is and speaks his mind.

    I've just placed my three crosses, as has young webber.

    David Seagar

    Carl Woodall

    Duncan Greaves

    I've worked with all three, and am confident that they will do their utmost for BASC and the sport that we all share.

    Peter.

    I'm quite sure that alistair will be a popular vote; however he let me down in his former job at BASC, although I do understand that he did a good job.

    My votes are based on personal experience with the chosen candidates.

    Members will read the CVs and make their considered choices.

    Pass or fail,  at least I've done more than most members will be bothered to do, and that is VOTE.

    Left BASC a while ago which wasnt an easy choice but thought the direction it was being steered wasnt for me so the voting probably isnt for me to comment but i hope that members do vote for the sake of the organization.

    I know BASC get a fair bit of bashing and a lot justified imo but no doubt a strong and united BASC is a great voice for shooting and as mentioned before if the correct men were in the job im pretty sure some ex members would consider a new membership.

    I would certainly agree with voting for Alisdair , he was one who successfully outed the corruption going on in BASC not long ago , whilst other Council members who knew what was going on turned a Nelson's eye. We need new blood , not yes men who are just along for CV enhancement and an expenses account.

    Well said, sir :good:

    Apparently at least one of these ill informed rants was hidden behind a fake profile. Vote for who you like but such vitriol is unnecessary and such lack of understanding and information is worrying.

    In reference to Liz's post above, sadly there is no shortage of stupidity in the world and the shooting community has it's fair share along with every other interest group.

    There will always be the wilfully ignorant and deliberately divisive to make posts such as that, sadly Facebook and the like give them an outlet and a ready made audience where others that are hard of thinking can applaud.

    I'm still here guys, years of fieldsports activity, although I can guarantee I would never call myself and expert in any of them. I do have a wide range of interests, all at the lower cost end of the spectrum. But I do know what it is like to beat in the freezing cold with the mud half-way up tall wellies, get out on the foreshore in an icy wind and stalk in hard conditions.

    I really don't think negative campaigning is all that good a thing in the long run.

    David.

    😂 Great stuff! 

    Followed that post when it was made on FB and i think the first post was by Chadwick saying he was voting for the female because she was young and all the men were old crusties then he started getting all white knighty because some folk started taking the pee out of the female candidate.

    Seems one rule for "old crusties" and another for young tidy females!

    BASC response

    BASC statement on social media conduct

    Mar 15, 2018

    BASC-logo-Square-200x200.jpgThere have been wholly unacceptable comments on social media in recent days which were dismissive of women in shooting and derogatory to individuals. BASC is clear that such activity is intolerable and incompatible with our pursuance of the highest standards.

    Such repugnant comments directly contradict the standards expected of BASC members.

    BASC is at the very forefront of encouraging more women to take up shooting, become members of the association and be represented on council. We are proud that female membership is our fastest growing membership category. Long may this continue.

    By standing together as the largest shooting organisation in the UK, BASC has a stronger voice to promote and protect shooting for all, including our female members.

    I was never impressed at the Chelsea Bun Club articles inside the back cover of the BASC mag'. Rightly or wrongly they always struck me as elitist and they always made me cringe. I didn't feel it was the way to go.   I don't know too many female game shooters but I can imagine their opinions of the Chelsea Bun Club.

    Im exactly the same.

    If females want to shoot they can batter on but some seem to think that having a nice set of **** allows them a pass without earning it.

    I know some females involved in field sports and all want treated the same as everyone else and dont play the lady card when it suits.
