    "If your name is on this list it means you’ve either booked in and didn’t show up or you’ve booked in and haven’t handed your card in."

    Very first line of the very first post of this thread

    And this above is why my personal opinion is that we should have pre-pay. Because then there is no need for any lists and there's no reason for anyone to state why they went and for the organisers to sit in judgement on if their reasons pass some yet to be determined benchmark.

    Short of viagogo getting in on the act we can simply over subscribe by the average amount of people who then no show and adjust the intake to suit.

    Standing squads can then be reshuffled for those that don't show on the day. Improvements have been made to the system and I'm sure there'll be more as people think of what can be done so it will only get better anyway.

    If people want to carry out the task of deciding who gets refunds and who doesn't then they can do that, they can check set the parameters that make a reason valid and not, and sit in judgment on them. I'm not prepared to do that myself and I wouldn't like anyone else to be put in that position so I'm not going to call for it either. This is a volunteer sport and I think that's wholly beyond people's qualification to make and I also will say that people will exploit that.

    My personal experience with booking in people for the worlds is that you'll never want to question the validity of someone's reason. Further, unless there's a financial commitment the reason's for non-attendance continue right up to that point of payment, and then they simply stop. I might be wrong but in the past decade there has not been one single person who has cancelled their worlds place after paying, yet the cancellations for people who gave 100% cast iron assurances they would take their place has run at some years as high as the same amount of people who end up going.

    So pre-pay in my book means no lists, no losses and pre-shoot paperwork headache minimised. But I'm willing to let the changes Martin has made this week to booking-in settle in and see if they bear fruit and then I'll take my region's view on it back to the BFTA in November.

    I can confirm that you have correctly cancelled your booking, you haven't caused any extra work for the unpaid volunteers and you will not appear on the list above.

    Thank you

    Oh wow,

    From experience I thought there would only be one out there but you reckon there are a lot more, and you know them personally - plural. Lol.
    Well you seem more knowledgeable on the subject so carry on but not on my behalf or for my benefit.

    Mark.

    I heard on the radio this morning about Boris being asked to apologise for references he made about berks.
