Right then. The Alliance for the Working Longdog/Lurcher (AWL).

 

Pros:

1/The title Alliance means: "an association of groups with a common aim" Is that not what we are and to become?

2/The name "Longdog" is an umbrella term that covers any type of sight hound, including, lurchers,whippets, saluki X greyhounds, Greyhounds, Salukis, etc. Is this not who we are to represent?

Cons:

1/ Would the title be acceptable to the majority?

2/ would another title be more to the point, whilst still representing all types of Longdogs, Sighthounds etc?

 

The Running Dog Alliance, (RDA)

 

Pros:

1/ it covers all running dogs.

2/ the name means what it say.

 

Cons:

1/ too broad a title, there are many types of running dogs that have no involvement in hunting, Track Greyhounds, etc

2/the name "Running dog" would be next to impossible to explain as a term for hunting.

 

The longdog alliance;

A none starter, too similar to the Alliance for the working Longdog.

 

That there may be others I understand, but time is of an essence

 

After this post i suggest a deadline of twenty four hours for any other suggestions, with full reasoning and merits. We will then get on with forming a steering group, and I will get on with changing all the documentation.

Alan, we already have a steering group and we meet in the next few weeks. with a view to putting together a proposal to Tim Bonner. Time is important, but of greater priority is getting things right. I thought you were already on board with that agenda?

The Working Lurcher Federation.

 

 

 

No need for Gb or British, just nice and short and sweet and simple.

 

 

The Code of Conduct was pasted earlier on in the thread by Paulus, I can't see it being improved much. :victory:

Alan I sent you a PM last night which you have acknowledged outlining the plans and time scales of the steering committee to that end I can't understand why you are still posting paragraphs such as the above.

 

Just so everybody is aware the five strong committee has been working for hours every day on this since they they were formed, a date has been decided for the meeting and an agenda is being drawn up, a date has also been agreed to meet with Tim Bonner. Everything that will be discussed and decided on the initial meeting will be put to Tim bonner and after that we will know in which direction we can take this, until then all these posts about this and that are pointless.
