Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

was just pointing out to the individual who was ranting and ranting for all to see, that he was grossly mistaken.... Don't be too hard on him, eh. After all we're told not to mock the afflicted. I asked a specialist teacher friend of mine to take a look at the tweets and rants and was told there's ...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

This seems like a very fair & positive offer - to try to 'unstick' things and move towards the goal of having K7 based in Consiton. We think it's pretty reasonable. The boat isn't going into the wing without a bulletproof contract that allows us to get it back out and run on water (the 2013 one wil...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Is it time to be cautiously optimistic?
Not sure but hopefully. We'll just have to wait and see what Jordan comes back with.

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

For the Badgers, Norwoods and Woodys of this world, I propose an extended class - Type III bis - which translates as double Type III ..
Just think, if there was a Nobel prize for jaw-dropping stupidity we might have been in the presence of greatness.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Just for the avoidance of any doubt I’m not playing the role of moderator between ourselves and the Trustees just a point of contact to try and start the ball rolling. That's because video conferences are the only way people meet these days and you understand that stuff and I'm not learning how to ...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Open letter sent today. Dear Sirs, Further to your brief correspondence of 11th September stating your desire for a ‘firm, enforceable arrangement’ we confirm that we are more than happy to work towards just such an arrangement so long as it protects the interests of all concerned. Of late, many, in...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

I follow Susie Dent of countdown fame and she posted this on Twitter today do you think she has been following woody??? Staggering that Woody, Badgers 1,2&3, Norwood was given free rein to do so much damage to Gina and the Campbell's reputation, he's pretty much trashed it since he arrived on the s...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

I keep my fingers crossed... Jordan has kindly offered his services to host a video conference with the museum to ask exactly what they want and to set out exactly what we want. From there we can work out how to achieve the best compromise. On paper it ought not be too difficult as we don't want an...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Someone who insists they're right despite clear evidence they are wrong, is a mumpsimus (from the 16th century).
What's the plural?

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

I don't know about people tearing up and getting a lump in their throat over it; but it would certainly be a positive step in the right direction. Well, you never know, we may have made a very small step in the right direction today. We received a brief mail from the trustees, which amongst other t...
