LGB CLUB NAME CHANGE With reference to the obsession and undue haste for changing the club name for fear we may be confused with a Lesbian Gay & Bisexual group I have the following thoughts. Next year it will be 40 years since the first official club magazine was printed. With a name change we no longer relate to the history of the club & the hard work of the early members building it up. In those 40 years we have not been overtaken by lesbians,gays or bisexuals and should we get a few it may well make the club more colourful. This excuse for a name change could be viewed as discriminatory by some persons. A name change would involve unnecessary costs and inconvenience. Registration of the new name, change of bank accounts & insurance and replacement of club tee shirts are the most obvious requirements. To use this as an excuse for declining club membership is incorrect. Several model magazines ( Australian Model Railway Magazine, Model Railways in Australia) print an annual list of model railway clubs and in earlier years the committee entered the LGB Club in the list. This was free advertising to potential members as was the Leonville exhibition layout with Leon & John. New customers at Pamak are also made aware of the existence of the club and its activities. It has been said that we need to attract younger members but of the 800 plus mail order customers I have listed the majority are in the retired or within a few years of retiring group followed by families of young children. To reach a younger generation addicted to smartphones and computers would need short video clips of club layouts on Facebook and U tube or similar with a contact number/email address. No details of the members name or location would need to be shown. Kevin King.
