A club is a group of individuals doing what the majority in that club want to do.
If they do not, the club fails or the hierachy is domocraticly voted out and it all starts again.
So if you don't like what that club does, they couldnt give a s*it as they know you would not fit in with them anyway.
If they are a bunch of old crusties doing dives they want to do, what's it got to do with you? they are happy
If all they do is train, fine again so what that's there choice.
If they are happy doing loads of tech stuff again wnat's it got to do with any rec newbies that want in who would
find all this way OOT if not very intimidating.
BSAC are made up of a massive variance of clubs and not just two, just about the only thing they have in common
is wanting to keep the existing membership happy and not change that just because anyone even BSAC themsleves
I'm sure many (even those that comment on here who have never been in BSAC) think iwe are all about BSAC holding
hands or giving a salute to Elsemere Port, when the reality is that the vast majority in BSAC very much see the
branch first and BSAC second. Sure we support and want BSAC to do well, but if they went down or didn't do what our
own particular branch wanted we'd switch agencies in a heartbeat.
Once you understand branch first (+ the variety in that branch) and BSAC second, it's easier to understand how difficult
it can be for BSAC using a common goal to gel the branches when for many that common goal does not exist.
