Re: Discussion re: ICU recommendations

I dunno but I would assume all recreational members have a vote, provided your name was on a list of members that your club gave the ICU when it was joining up. Then again assumptions are the mother of all Tiernans. The over 21's thing is a bit much, where'd that come out of originally? I know peopl...
