Have you ever seen the BBC series, The Detectorists? It's a comedy series about a local metal detecting club starry Mackenzie Crook of The Office fame. Anyway, it's a comic look at the goings on of a local club and all the mad stuff that happens. I'm living that program at my local camera club. It's mad. This week we've had tantrums over a questionaire sent out to members to find out what they want from the club, by the secretary. Following the email we've had the Programme secretary threaten to quit, followed by his wife, the Print secretary threatening to quit, then the secretary who sent the questionaire quit, closely followed by the Chairman quitting, and as a committee member i get copied in on all the emails. It's been an entertaining few days. A friend thinks this could make an excellent fly-on-the-wall documentary. I think i agree.
It seems to be sorting itself out now and some of the members have changed their minds and not quit but this weeks photoshoot evening on Thursday should be interesting. :-)
Away from that and onto football, after watching Bradford Town FC win 4-0 on Saturday in the FA Vase, they were drawn today against Newport on the Isle of Wight in an away tie. So a glamour trip to the good old IOW could be on the cards for me. Following on from that, the FA Cup 3rd round draw took place earlier as well and sees my beloved Leeds United drawn against Newport County. So my two teams have both been drawn against a team call Newport. Weird.. :-)
I didn't have a pic of the Isle of Wight, so you'll have to make do with one from my Cornwall trip earlier this year.. :-)
