UKAPU
Chairman
Stands Down



As UKAPU issue a statement about the resignation of outgoing chairman Phil Bucknall, the UK airsoft scene will be missing a great ally in its ever present struggle to unite and bring a little sense, co-operation and spirit of good will back into what’s been missing in the sport lately.

Due to work commitments Phil has had to step aside and I for one will miss his leadership, calm under pressure and relaxed no nonsense style he brought to UKAPU. He has been a steady hand at the tiller through stormy waters – although we didn’t always see eye to eye on all issues, I was always happy to accept his guidance and wise words.

Phil, you will be missed fella and I hope we still get to see you around and still an active and vocal member of the UKAPU community. Good luck from Airsoft Odyssey & Yosser in your future endeavours.

Here is the UKAPU press release in full and if your concerned about UK airsoft and want to get involved please contact UKAPU about positions and procedures for election.


UKAPU statement regarding committee positions

Following on from recent events and our AGM back in December there have been a number of developments that we need to bring to the memberships attention. The first one is that as of the end of February, Phil Bucknall will be stepping down as chairman due to increasing work commitments in the real world! Whilst this is obviously significant it does not mean that UKAPU is no more BUT it means that we as a committee need more members to step up, grab the horse by the reigns and steer it onwards and upwards.

This is a battle cry in effect to mobilise the hundreds of members we have to see if any of you are willing to step up and shoulder the responsibility of chairing the association. Perhaps if you don't fancy that role you could fill one of the other positions.

I make no bones about it. Sometimes it is bloody hard, thankless work but we believe that UKPAU has made a difference and continue to do so if people are willing to get involved.

Without member involvement then quite frankly UKAPU will have no choice but to shut its doors as what would be the point? A membership that doesn't want to form a committee is worse than no association. So I urge you. If you are driven, passionate about our wonderful hobby and a member with no commercial ties to the Airsoft industry then maybe you could be responsible for helping UKAPU grow over the next few years and take it to exciting new places.

Please think long and hard. If you want to this; please be sure. Feel free to discuss it with us via email or phone (number on request) to settle any doubts and to answer any questions.

This is YOUR association. Make it what YOU want of it and see it succeed and grow.

Thanks.
