Life's to short, this is after all a hobby isnt it?
Paul Holman....former Sub Committee member.
I won't argue with you there at all, Paul.
I was personally threatened with legal action on account of my name appearing as a contact for UK members of the Sub Committee.
Basically, I'm a volunteer doing my best to make this a better hobby for all UK submariners, I'm not interested in which organisation, club etc. you belong to, and I'm not making any money out of it. For instance the Sub run that I organised last year was open to all model submariners and free.
Unfortunately, there are always a minority of people who have an axe to grind, and they have a bad habit of ruining the fun for the majority.
This dates back to a thread on here where I was gauging interest in a pool run for UK members. I wanted to invite non-members and also AMS members. The consequences of this was that I was accused of promoting the AMS on a Sub Committee UK board, and this resulted in a somewhat heated exchange.
The end result was that a group of UK members mass resigned from the Sub Committee, and probably registered the Sub Committee UK as an independant company. All because some folk don't like the AMS!
To me this looked like a classic case of cutting off your nose to spite your face.
However if these guys think a small name change will dent my enthusiasm, then they're mistaken, and I hope to increase media coverage of the Sub Committee within the UK via SubCom UK, and hopefully get a few more events off the ground in the future.
All I need is the support of the Uk model submarine community.
