Loss of Grant
Morning everyone,

I want to make this clear, I am posting here as Andy Howie the person, not Exec Dir, Mod or anything else that I happen to do in chess in Scotland.

I am frustrated at the loss of the grant. What really sticks in my throat is I speak to my European counterparts frequently and I know how badly off we are in comparison with other Euro countries. Andorra, for example gets 6 times the amount we get and it is the size of Cumbernauld!

I don't particularly want to take this lying down. That unfortunately is not my style. I am thinking of writing to my MSP and wondered if I can get everyone to do the same. Nothing focuses a politicians mind when they have their locals upset about something!
