my thoughts are he never delivered and knows it has found to be wanting on a number of issues and has sided with the old school at the rpra ...hence going backwards not forwards ,took the company car and benefits for as long as possible and no doubt lined up a new job before resigning ...basically the guys done feck all apart from put his hand in the honeypot ...I would like to see a online interview of 4-6 candidates and each member of the rpra gets a vote ...not a elected gm from within a yes man for the old doctrine living in the dark ages Rolling Eyes

yeah that's another thing freebie long weekender on the beer and best nosh in a swanky hotel entertaining the mayor of blackpool and her husband Razz the rpra is running a sport the same way as 40 years ago yet the membership has dropped dramatically in that time ,they need to move with the times but pigeon men are stalwarts in general and go with the flow so more money is being drained from the few as the gravy train leaves for its next excursion Basketball

I read a letter In the bhw from some stupid woman, saying what a wonderful man waldrop is, and how he represents the sport/hobby of pigeon racing, and how much good he had done.....

it was sickening to read.......... pale

yes, I think the bhw is owned by the rpra or something along those lines if I`m not mistaken... scratch I don't buy the bhw it swap it with an elderly local fancier for my racing pigeon weekly every few weeks, but I`ll try find the issue out with the womans letter in and post up what she said about him, it will probably be his wife or his mother... lol! lol! lol!

used to like some of the scribes but its basically turned into a advertising rag for products and pigeons cant say I miss my old Thursday read at all tbh waisted pages on the raptor alliance and keeping fanciers in the dark on certain issues like the dickin medal pages on the Olympiad and what a farce that was on selection with buddies looking after buddies Laughing I will stick to me club racing and toilet paper from now on they are both cheaper lol! pirat

thing that always puzzles me is, who is the highest position in the rpra , the manager...? but who puts the manager in his position...? who gives him the job and decides if he is the best candidate...?

whi hires and fires the top man...? scratch

has to be the committee who hires and fires who else could it be ? the members maybe Razz don't be daft we just fuel the gravy train cheers they could have pre-recorded online interviews of 4-6 candidates have them on the rpra web site for a week window whereby the end of that week members cast a vote or even have 1 vote per club submitted but it will never happen same old boys club

yes, it seems there has been more skulduggery and more controversy since waldrop became the main man, than when the other fella was in charge (cant remember his name... scratch  )
