The thread, Club Competitions, Events, Etc title does not indicate the fact that if a club representative makes a posting, they could possibly be in for a kicking from past members that loved the club in the past and forgot that it was the club that made them, and not them that made the club.

I'm sure that there are a lot of clubs out there that have the same situation. As the DPA representative I feel justified in posting under the heading and would hope that all "decentres" would just get along with their own affairs and not comment on situations where they are not involved.

Rory ,I am surprised at you for making such a silly statement.All clubs are made up of members not members made up of clubs.Anyone choosing to be a committee member should be able to take criticism after all it is the committees duty to represent the members best interests and not their own.
Merry Xmas to one and all.

like i have stated on this forum before every club is made up out of member's!! which are the people who choose to join it,,,same as the federation would be only a listed title without it's member's,,a commitee is a group of club/fed member's who have been voted in to represent EVERYONE'S interest's in the running of said club/fed,,,at least thats the way i've alway's seen it,,a commitee does not make a club/fed!! the member's do!! just sometime's/mostimes?? it seem's that some people think that it run's the oppisite way and do as THEY PLEASE ,,,just my 2 cent's on COMITTEE'S,,,,, Cool

Howdy Terry,The way I see this is the members vote in a commitee
and at the agm there are points put to the commitee to address,now
the commitee let it be 7/10 persons gos off and discuss the points
put to the commitee board,now the commitee has to come to a
resolution on all the points in front of them,but the decision will
not please everyone,so the commitee will always get kicked by
somebodies who either was not voted in or likes to sit on the fence
and bitch all day long Exclamation
a little longer than I planned so mayby 10 cent worth Razz

ideally NGP, that is how it should work .if done fairly ...the committee should strive to do best by its members fairly, address their wishes to the best possible outcom, in a fair and democratic way... for the betterment of our sport and protection of our quarry.
But if it strays from this and throw few other factors in the mix or its ran to suit the few or out of self interest/benifit .. there where strife begins, unhappy campers, splits , people walk awayetc have seen it happen many times before (mostly in a club) but in the fed also... and am trying to stop it from happening again !!!!

Although the records will show that I didn't attend the inaugral meeting of the DPA I always
consider myself to be on of the founder members as I was actively involved with
Messers Boylan, Moffatt and co. when we first mooted the idea of a pike angling club to represent the pike anglers of Dublin.
This was at a time when killing pike in competitions was still common place and ideed one of our
founding objectives was to promote the conservation of pike and were among the first clubs to run competitions
with a mandatory catch and release policy. Another bery strong ethos of the club was the enjoyment of fishing and I remember with great fondness the obvious lack of competitiveness within the club, with some obvious exceptions of course JC!

Anway, to the point. It it with sadness that I now read this and unfortunately several other
similar threads relating to this once great club and how self interest and conpetitivenss have turned it into a shadow of its former self.

I was far from the most competitive angler . There were quite a few. I think most enjoyed stopping off at the Lisgrey or somewhere like that on the way home for some grub and a few (?) drinks and chatting about the days fishing or the fact that the bus went on fire or got stuck on a bog road !!!

As an ex member off the dpa and I was there when Shay Boylan and Jonny Moffat were members I think the club is a shadow off its self due to the reasons laid out by Magnus, There appears to be a bit snobbery going on there now some people look down their noses at dead baiters and I have often heard off them been regarded as lazy. Theese kind off atitudes would need to change. Alot off people join a club just to get a goodays fishing too much off this compition bull can put alot off anglers off. Having said that this club has put alot off young pike anglers on the right road. I would still recommend them to any young person starting off piking in the dublin aerea.Happy Xmas to all.

Rory, I'm going to leave it at that............... But if you'd like to go on ..... no problem,...... i'll let fly. Could even post a copy of former chairmans resignation letter Wink ( not me) its says it all.. I know Pat cooper mentioned he's recommend kids to the club, Well not a chance in hell would I... ( ask Pikenator for 1) You know only 2 well, the pandoras box you'll open..


I cut my teeth with the DPA , it was a fantastic club with a great reputation, and nearly every pike Trophy in the country is etched with a DPA engraving. I've the fondest memories of the club..

The DPA is ran not to any set rules but to suit the few ( the 2 of ye) always to yer benefit and always to yer advantage. And managed to drive clubs members away, Quicker than a Jalalabad with backpack, screaming 'Allah' !!!! .
Its a shadow, a shell of its former self... Nice one!! talent eh!!

The rot has now begun to filter tru to IFPAC (bound to) ,,, I'll not sit by and watch it happen ... and do my best to stop the rot.... and the little Wink
