Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Fred, if your comment
"If you left in disgust in the 2oth century, then I'd seriously consider rejoining in the 21st."
was aimed at me, I did rejoin - when I started Calling for cash for the general public. It was pointed out that I needed Public Liability insurance and EFDSS was a way of getting it.
If it was a general comment then I agree that they are doing some good work now (catching up with the digital age at last, much behind CDSS). Purely in cash terms, I'm not sure what someone who didn't need insurance would get from being a member that they couldn't get anyway (magazine & journal if you still like print) other than supporting the cause.

If EFDSS stopped running Whitby in 1981 I think the members discount must have carried on longer than that.
Interesting that CDSS are still running Pinewoods weeks (and people are getting hot under the collar about proposed changes).

I only knew Whitby after it 'grew up and left home', it seems to me that EFDSS made the right decision.
