Default Abuse of a significant gliding club financial legacy etc


"During the last few years members expressed through a series of informal
meetings with the directors and a series of resolutions at Annual General
Meetings an increasing desire that the directors replace or upgrade the
technical assets with more up to date technology"

The directors did f*all despite a hundred grand in the bank and profitable
continuing operations.

They then acquired a EuroFox tug via a thirty grand donation which has
proven to be very unreliable. The engine is so unreliable that the engine
has partially or totally cut out on at least 2 of 10 separate incidents,
one of which I personally witnessed.

I have 1500 hours gliding and all three diamonds.

I despair.
