Bad news, Rod, did anyone go to CHBC about it? Two things happen with TV time: the idiots are sometime identified, so you can sue them in civil court, and the club gets much-needed PR.

As I said before, Rod, I only go by my experiences. The c/l site in Richmond took me (and a couple of other guys) seven long painful years of fighting with bureaucrats before we were successful. We had the politicians convinced, but I had to resort to ugly tactics before the bureaucracy finally conceded.

The Municipality was spending buckets of money installing drainage and turf on 5 different fields to play soccer, yet only a threat got us a c/l site. If that only happened once, I would concede, but I know about the fights that went on in Burnaby and a few other places before modellers were successful in getting a proper site.

Bureaucrats will shut down the activities of 30 people on the strength of ONE complaint. This follows a dictum I know too well: it is easier to Just Say No than to actually cure the problem. Again, this is my personal experience, without ever resorting to second or third-hand information.

Happy Canada Day anyway; sorry that the neanderthals found your clubhouse...
