Desperate attempt to penny pinch..or wholly justified!!!

Most people I see in this neck of the woods use their 4x4 to drive the two miles to the gym. If they used a bike to get there and back they probably wouldn't need the gym. I wonder how any get out of the 4x4 enter the gym have a coffee and a chat then leave?

This little thread has confirmed to me one thing and one thing alone..

Not the value of the fitness test..
Yes deducting bounty for important issues is perfectly acceptable
That generally everyone considers it to be a good idea and a good step forward...

but the fact that CMR find the process of providing the smallest amount of information and guidance on the simplest of issues in any comprehensible and understandable fashion to the RNR in a consistent manner as some sort of test devised by the Krypton Factor....

Sort it out fellas for god sake..

I heard a viscous rumour that everyone must attend at least one recruitment event per year otherwise bounty reduction!!!

Just another one of our little ideas being bounced around.

Where did this gem come from? You need enthusiastic volunteers for recruitment events, not press ganged conscripts.

I can see the line now "Join the RNR and spend your free time being forced to do things like this" - is it any wonder we have a retention crisis when idiotic ideas like this are pushed around?

We had a clear lower deck last week and had it confirmed by the CO that it would effect this years bounty.

Can someone in the upper echelons at least try and get the party line correct. If we can't even get simple policy right across such a small organaisation, then why should the RN think we are proffesional.

What sort of communication are these things distributed by, Chinese Whispers?
