Molly AGM Minutes - A Reaction

Looking through the minutes of the molly AGM, noticed something about dancing for 2 sides:

"Dancing with more than 2 sides - there were times this year when people were dancing with both Gogs and another team."

Trying to think of examples of this happening and the only one that springs to mind is me at Wallingford.

It goes on to set what the "expectations" should be in this case. Which I met during the weekend. ie telling the dance-out organiser what my schedule for the weekend would be, which I did well in advance.

OK, I was often late/left early from spots, because I couldn't instantiously get across town. However, I had let Emma know that I would be dancing for 2 sides and so shouldn't be relied upon for numbers when I first knew about it. Also I had no expectation to be in any of the sets, I just turned up as soon as I could and if I was told to be in a set I got in it and when I knew I wasn't needed again I left for the next spot.

I'm now really struggling to see what the issue was?

Maybe I'm just reading too much into it...

I find it dangerous to try to read things into discussions at AGMs, as the typical thing is that someone mentions something that they think should be discussed, people think it means something else, people come back from the bar half-way through and think a third thing is being discussed, and then the minute-taker can't remember any of the cross-purposes conversation anyway because he got buttonholed briefly by someone else at the crucial moment.

In this case, it may well be that someone noticed that you were dancing with 2 sides and because it worked well in that case they thought the way you approached it was worth setting in stone.

So I'd find it easier to read a compliment in than a criticism :-)

Had certain suspicions as to who had put it on the agenda in the first place, which would have meant it would have been a criticism (the person in question doesn't like me very much anymore)...

In retrospect I don't think I'm too bothered by it. It just surprised me to be there more than anything else.

I think you did about the right things; had you not, there might have been a problem. It's possible that someone else might fail to do these things, and therefore have a problem. Writing down what the right things to do are helps avoid this.
