    Sure I get the need to raise money but please not from the volunteers/parents! Returning to the thread, we have enough trouble getting parents to help or volunteer. Start adding cost and wave bye bye...

    Interesting though I would expect that example would be more of a liability example as you hint at. Has this happened enough times before to the extent insurance should be required? My question is...

    Thanks, I can read the list too. I hadn't realised sitting and watching fencing was so accident prone. How exactly does it help parent volunteers? The accident insurance is for what type of accident?...

    Can someone explain to me the point of the 'Support' membership? I mean you spend time and effort helping out AND you have to pay for the privilege?

    However I don't believe you actually have to...

    To quote from the PDF itself:

    "FENCERS CLAIMING A BYE MUST ENTER THE REGION QUALIFYING COMPETITION, but need not fence."

    So you will need to pay to enter the regional qualifier if you want to...

    Quite why you cannot explain the details fully until another three months is quite ridiculous, particularly as EF have not communicated anything for well over a year.

    With the two eyes and stubby nose it's just missing the smile!

    And your proof that they have cracked the problems and their solution is better than LP's? You have only their word for it.

    By reports on the web there are possibly over 20 'entries' to the FIE...

    It's just going to be one of many thanks to the FIE 'wireless contest'. Why would you choose them over an established manufacturer such as LP? Unless you make it super cheap (and reliable)?

    It's not down to the counties, it's down to the schools who they choose (exam board). In any case it is exam season, and before that revision. It is only safe to 'down tools' earlier in the year.
