Cheers hobbsy.I know you all want me to say something on here and sorry I haven't been able to. It is very easy for people to snipe at BIAS on here but remember that we are all volunteers and there are only a handful of people who want to put themselves forward and a small proportion of that handful are actually willing to take on some actions, the number decreases every year. But of course the buck stops with me as Chairman.
Hopefully there will be some new people who want to come on board and help out and turn things around, but the AGM is in three weeks. There will be some more stuff on the BIAS site in the next couple of days.
With regards to ticketing I have emailed Kurt and Mark earlier today with regards to today's statement from the club asking to explain how we are in November and have key functional elements missing from the site and what decisions why decisions were made to go live without it. The ticketing site is a shambolic situation which looks to me like someone has done a very bad job and defining specifications when procuring.
May.I suggest that you copy your emails to the BFC board as there has not been any sign that they have a flicker of interest in this though Owlsmoor Bee has told us that the subject has been discussed at every BU board meeting for a while now and then presumably through Messrs Merritt and Kerr on to the BFC board.
My own view is that it's time that Cliff Crown said something to reassure us that individuals are being held to account on this and to confirm that the BFC board has agreed a timeline with the responsible parties and especially the CEO to get this sorted.
We are all to blame as with the one key exception of Banana who has kept us alert we have got slack and enjoying the success of the Club at the on the field level we ;probably assumed that the incompetence and lack of leadership seen off the field with the various screwups over the past few years were now surely a thing of the past. We now know that this is patently not true and we have to wonder how much more of this sort of stuff has been going on unseen by supporters, covered up by executives and the issues solved simply by throwing more of MB's dosh at it.
It's time now for a review of of the executive staff and consideration being given to bringing in some new blood because as Banana said some days ago we've either been lied to or the executive simply didn't have a clue what was going on and took others words for it that everything was okay.
