Re: ICU AGM Motions

Is there separate meetings of the executive and the board? in which case yes, a motion that all should be published would be good. I think it could help to clear up much of the confusion and misinformation that seems to be generated about the ICU on a regular basis. It would probably be a good idea ...

Re: ICU AGM Motions

How about a motion to require board minutes be published?

Re: ICU Training Unit details - [Split for clarity]

Ken you seem to think that I'm dismissing you on the basis I don't particularly like people disagreeing with me, if anything I could be mistaken for dismissing you because I don't think you understand what I’m saying. ‘Materiality in auditing’ doesn't apply when the "audited" books are in fact bala...

Re: The ICU Training Unit needs your details

I'm sick of this attitude, "I don't understand it so can we all move on". And Ken your track record on calling this sort of stuff has been a bit off in the past too. You mean that you don't particularly like people disagreeing with you so therefore you'd prefer they stopped? If I don't understand e...

Re: The ICU Training Unit needs your details

This all sounds very silly. Am I missing something because I don't see the link between the ICU office not giving the TDU access to it's member list and the CEO situation?

I agree with Sean Mc, time to put all this sillyness and infighting behind us and do something to progress the sport.

Mobile Phone Coverage?

Mobiles are increasingly becoming considered as an integral part of our paddling kit. But in mountainous areas where we normally paddle coverage isn't always good. Has anyone noticed if any operator has better or worse coverage in such areas then others?

Re: River Alerts on Twitter ...again

After another weekend with patchy rain about the place I was thinking it would be great to have Twitter feed with river levels as people see them. A lot of people have smartphones now so have the ability to update easily. Could something like this feed be used as a central place to post stuff like t...

Re: Reconvened ICU AGM - Saturday, November 8th 2008 City W

To be honest I think that this is making a mountain out of a molehill. The accounts are presented in a manner normal for much larger entities than the Canoe Union. The disclosures are actually quite detailed. Likewise the mistakes that were made were relatively small. From the auditors perspective a...
