    I make no apology about what I have said about the infrastructure in the sport. When I see how much money is
    unspent each year by England Fencing and 'sleeps' in a bank account earning just 67 on a...

    Baldric

    I do believe in the 'Volunteer' system. A small sport like fencing needs its volunteers to run clubs and become

    I think that everyone misses the point of the rules change.

    It is not about BYC Qualifiers, but whether it is appropriate for a club located in Inner London whose membership
    are also primarily...

    Ray

    I responded to what you wrote. You did not provide the explanation that you have now provided.

    What I said also is that if a particular region does not have the demand or volunteers to...

    Are you seriously suggesting that you keep a Region alive by shifting clubs from all around the country just to
    achieve this? If the demand is so low in an area and you don't have enough volunteers...

    Ray I have made a consistent case for a very long time that I consider that there is far too much bureaucracy in
    what is a very small sport.

    You made a point about Southern Region almost folding,...

    Thank you for explanation. I appreciate genuinely what you did in personal capacity.

    However, at the end of the day we come back to the same point which is what exactly is the role of England...
