Re: The Break Up of the UK!

RtR . Do not exaggerate our protection under English law. The British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) is formally subject to the Data Protection Act (DPA). BMAF however is on record as deeming itself above the DPA provisions concerning my personal data. For BMAF has previously been pronounced i...

Sidelined . How on earth can you assume that? I had not used the word "hag" to her, or any insult. So I was indeed surprised at her rudeness to me. A definition of a hag is "an unpleasant or ugly old woman." This one is probably more unpleasant than ugly (which does not matter t...

Re: The Break Up of the UK!

Thans Geoff. Wow! Go Wales. As an Englishman, I now appreciate better the non-economic rationale for Celtic devolution. The British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) deliberately withheld what was written to the minutes about me, while informing all 11 British Masters regional clubs (with the resu...

Geoff, I am truly fascinated by this unexpected British athletics glasnost. How come you have access to internal Welsh Committee minutes, Welsh General Council Minutes and UKA Members Council minutes?

Re: When and where are you competing next? Which events?

28 January 2012, Stockholm Masters Indoors: M70 400m, only. I cannot run fast because of injury. So I will relax, think of England and enjoy it. Happy New Year to all my fans.

Re: Read It In The News 2011

OK RTR. But I suspect that Christian Malcolm was not even "complaining" (a word with negative connotations - as I have experienced.) He could have been just responding to questions. I don't get Sky News here. Can someone tell me: did Christian Malcolm actually take the initiative to making...

Re: Closed meetings. Recommendation to IAAF and WMA.

Wow. That is unfair to the athlet...

Re: Closed meetings. Recommendation to IAAF and WMA.

Is this practice confined to the British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF)?

Or do other British clubs - BigGut and fangio's Leamington then - also treat their athletes in this way?

Closed meetings. Recommendation to IAAF and WMA.

My unfortunate experience at the hands of the British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) indicates that something must be done about meetings behind closed doors of British athletics bodies. If you recall, a year ago I submitted a subject access request for the minutes of the 5 November 2006 BMAF D...

I do not give a fig for these people. However uniform treatment is a good thing. It is also a good thing that unequal/unjust decisions can be reversed. Pity such restitution only applies to druggies and not to a previously unjustly banned British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) athlete. (Again, ...

That was actually very good BigGut. When you are not blinded by your need to insult people, you can be quite sensible. And you are much nicer at something you obviously know something about. As BigGut says, there are multiple ways of being a coach. Forgive my clips. ...... ---- I completely agree wi...

The psychology of complaining about a sports body

Pursuing my well-documented complaint about the British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) has proved a fascinating experience. I ask AW Forum readers:

1. Is it wrong in principle to complain about a sports body?

2. Is it wrong specifically to “criticise BMAF Officers in public“?

Re: EMG Lignano - Athletics schedule

I will be privileged to run against the legendary German athlete Guido Müller, M70 400m world record holder (59.34 sec), at Lignano.

Registration (entry) to the 10-20 September 2011 European Masters Games (EMG) is still formally open. So pile in. The more the merrier.
