If that would happen, it would make a lot of old fart‘s eyes wet...

Agreed. I just had the impression as if the process had come to a standstill.

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Joerg, you guys know from experience that the BBP crew is perfectly approachable. Come and have a look around, have a natter with everyone, ask your questions, come for a beer later - you've been there. And it doesn't stop there. Yes, we were treated nicely, be it you or Ted, whom we asked many que...

Guess that didn't work too well. Which isn't a big surprise as she is way too much involved in the story, so far from beeing neutral.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Will understanding why Ms. Campbell did a 180 really matter? I think it does matter. Maybe not from a legal point of view, but - first - understanding this might give everyone else a clue what's the real problem of the Ruskin side is and - second - I doubt any operation of K7 makes sense without th...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

In a perfect world this sounds like a really good plan. Problem is, there are some circumstances, circumstances which I don't know and thus don't understand, which prohibit the museum side to also think the above is a good plan. As long as these circumstances are unclear, I have doubts you will rece...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

This is not what I had in mind converning 'mediation'. I had though about a respected person who would so this on a voluntary basis, just in the interest of the importance of K7 to the motor sport history. Someone who can figure out, by talking to both sides, what each side has in mind and what's bl...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Sure, by reading here I can only listen to one side of the story and by meeting you guys on Bute I might also be a little biased towards the BBP as well, but really trying to be neutral I have very little understanding for what's going on the other side. And whenever people post here from that side,...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

'We might allow you but it's all subject to what our committee decides'. When I hear people saying such things then my alarm bell rings. "Oh, I personally would like this, but a higher force doesn't let me do it - I'm so sorry..." They are trying to hide behind a "higher force" and do not take resp...
