What's New..... at Blue Force
An Important Message from Philip Gibson, Blue Force Chairman I feel I must reply to Mr David Taylor’s letter in the March magazine about the Blue Force 1000 event, this will also be replied to in the next mag and to Mr Taylor in person.
Mr Taylor states he received £1600 from Blue Force to attend BF1000 with the dancing Majorettes tractors. This was not the case, Blue Force does not and will not pay anyone to attend events. Tight control of our finances are paramount to the running of your club, as our accounts prepared by chartered accountants will show and are available to any paid up member.
BF1000 was run by Blue Force Events Ltd and neither myself, Vice Chairman, Treasurer, or Secretary had any control over the event.
