Matters raised by members
Andrew Muir has made the following 5 proposals (all seconded by Geoff Chandler)
1. Stephen Hilton for Publicity Officer Stephen has raised £5000 over last 3 years for Braille sponsorship and wishes to stand.
2. No joint Scottish Champion. Joint champion possibility leads to negative play. I am guilty of agreeing a draw in final round to guarantee at least a joint championship when I was winning. I am in good company - Paul Motwani & John Shaw have copped out in the past. Alex McFarlane's method of voting gave illogical results. The players should decide.
3. Old style noticeboard to be brought back. Simpler to use, new style can be kept as well for those who want it.
4. National League should not be FIDE rated . Time control too fast + two games in day.
5. Weekend congresses should not be FIDE rated . Time control too fast + two games in day.
