    George Howards reply to karthick is pretty bad. Nearly two month after Mt Buller is finished, I am finding the type of excuse for not attending to the promised Buller-tins breathtaking.
    He claims lack of time. Lack of time? To send pictures? To open the CD masterfile (see Adelandre in this thread)? To finalise the Buller-tins? Ahh, I see.. the latter does not only take his time, but it also will cost money. Who has to pay?

    George does, you would assume it was out of the money collected for the bullertins. That was my understanding as to why the money was collected, to help pay for the bullertins to be sent out.

    When are we going to see the balance sheet for Mt Buller? Has the previous ACF president, George Howard made an extra-ordinarily healthy profit out of us? I have heard some extraordinary figures. If something unhealthy has occured would the police need to know?

    As the body in question was an incorporated association won't its returns be filed with an SA government agency and be available for inspection?

    Facinating.

    Situation: Event finished over two months ago. Using a 28 day credit/debtor turnaround, cash at bank should be static. Money collected for CDs but none produced. STML been promised but has not received reimbursement despite repeated (?) requests.

    Conclusion/Suspicion: You could well be whistling for your dosh and/or CDs. Been there done that ppls. Obviously, I hope that that is not the situation in this case but, even on principle, I'd be preparing a letter of demand just in case. Best of luck.

    If he charged market rate, it's probably at least a coupla thousand.

    I am wondering how George proposes to discuss future Mt Buller sponsorships at the upcoming ACF meeting without being in a position to present a tidy report on the 2005 event.

    Quite simply, the best advertisement for future Mt Buller events is a comprehensive, positive report on the 2005 event and a "chess public" muttering about unpaid "helpers" and undelivered CDs isn't what I would be looking for if I wanted to present a credible face to Australian players.

    It's also hard to know how any kind of accounting (in the financial sense) can be remotely close to completion if these matters remain outstanding without any kind of communication or explanation for the delay.

    No, I was paid for my work, it's just that I was not reimbursed for some money I spent on the design, which I did not do. I originally included the design cost, but George wanted the whole thing changed, so it cost extra, which he agreed to pay.

    Georgie, Porgie..

    Georgie Porgie, you wouldn't lie,
    took us to Buller and now we cry!
    All of us came out to play!
    Georgie, Porgie, don't run away!

    ( on the advice of legal council, names have been changed to highlight the guilty!!)

    PS Where are our CD's Choo Choo?
