    Default Unbelievable

    For the past 3 seasons i have been a bailiff for a local club,and as luck as had it i have not had any bad experiances with poachers although i have had to ask a couple of them to stop fishing and leave the stretch of river, earlier this season the head bailiff and the rest of us thought a free club ticket should be given to all our club bailiffs, so this was put to the committee, they came back with a suggestion that all bailiffs should police their respect stretches at least every 10 days , which we all agreed with and actioned straight away,5 weeks ago we all got a text from Head bailiff saying that at this years ticket would be free and to be collected after this years AGM,last week we all got a text from the head bailiff saying that the committee had changed there stance and no free tickets would be issued, the Head bailiff myself and one other have now resigned all bailiff duties and 2 more are considering doing so, do any of you on FM do a bailiffs job and do you get a free club ticket .

    Seems pretty reasonable to me Stripey that you should be allowed a permit for the work you do.

    What a disgraceful attitude, are there bailiffs on the committee?

    it is a "no brainer" , they want free policing of their waters and you to take all the potential risks for what ?

    edited to say ; what are the club fees per annum and how many days are expected to be present as a bailiff , once every ten days over how many months ? TELL THEM TO SHOVE IT

    I take it that the committee don't get a free ticket?

    One of my clubs gives all head bailiffs a free ticket plus it shuts some waters for all bailiffs to get together for a match and BBQ. Seems the right thing to do to pay them back for their work.

    The Head Bailiff was on the committee but has resigned, he used to get a free ticket as do all committee members, seems that their work is more important than bailiffs.
