I would always take out my own travel insurance (OK, it will be more expensive once my EHIC has no validity).

Organising a tour in the way Tour7s operates (or did operate - I don't know its status) and promoting directly within the Club to Club members seems an excellent arrangement. 

I remember touring has been described as core activity as far as the Club is concerned.

Presumably Terence is acting on instructions I imagine can only come from the Chair. Christine (Abbot) ( Hi Christine, what is afoot? Do tell.)  It just looks very odd and disconcerting.

Hi Terence ,didn’t mean any negative comments , disagree with this post coming from Christine , think if she wanted to say something she would , how about a reply giving a bit more info 

just like to say I do not like saying anything negative about anyone involved with the MT. Team,,, as to me you all do a good job for the club in your own time , and get a kicking at times which you don’t deserve

Hi Anthony think you posted while I was typing ,

think we’re both on the same side ,just requires clarification , I don’t think there is any hidden thoughts ,,if that’s the right term ,, but easily remedied with a good clear response

I read the post with interest as i missed the Porto blat last year, so to see this may be happening for 2020 is of HUGE interest.

I do know Dave very well  having helped him organise the Stoneleigh club meet many years back. 2013

He is a 7 enthusiast through and through.

I know he has been the track day coordinator for the lotus 7 club for many year after that.

Now offering his services as the clubs tour organiser.

I would say this is a club member doing more than his fair share to support the lotus 7 club.

Thank you Dave for all that you do and I would be more than happy to join and support you on a future tour.

Anthony,

I am not sure whether to be annoyed by your assumption that I require anyone to write my emails for me, or to be pleased that you consider this one to have been written by a "professional".

Still, I should have expected the normal level of response by one of a certain group of frequent contributors to BlatChat. Silly me, I should have known better..

I don't have anyone to tell me what to do, Anthony, so your suggestion, is, again, offensive. But you have the traditional perogative of the harlot, power without responsibility. I have to act in the best interests of the Club, and unlike most of those posting on this tread have a legal responsibility for it.

Disrali famously said "This shows how much easier it is to be critical than to be correct", although you are correct in that there is a lot going on of which you are not aware,

As I am also sure you are certainly aware, there is a lot going on in the background that is not known by the membership as a whole, nor, indeed by directors or MT members I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I can see signs of a loosely coordinated antagonism towards officers of the Club. Your recent posts merely incline me in that direction.

Terence

Terence McCarthy,

General Secretary.

Lotus 7 Club.
