Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I don't think I would use a company that clearly misunderstands what renumeration is. "Someone on holiday could be caught by this new interpretation of the law" would still require them to receive some renumeration.

Not great marketing from MPI, but then what would we expect from an insurance company looking to line its pockets with money from frightened holidaymakers - of course more scaremongering.

In this instance, a guarantee of payment was demanded of DG. A guarantee of payment was made to the SCGB. A "Ski Club membership confirmation" [the SCGB's words] was transmitted to DG. A "payment receipt" [the SCGB's words] was part of that confirmation. The SCGB defined the deal and confirmed it. This was a done deal.

Absolutely nothing, other than working for TOs and buying the odd thing from UK retailers. My ego is nowhere near so over-inflated that I imagine I could 'do someting for British skiing'. I'm sure it manages perfectly well on its own. And what's 'British skiing' anyway that makes it so different and important compared to , for example, Hungarian skiing? As far as I can see, it consists largely of a load of commercial enterprises selling holidays, and as such is pretty much on a par with 'British use of theme parks'.

And if 'good people' have already had recourse to the law over all this nonsense and got nowhere, is it perhaps because there is nothing untoward going on and in fact you are merely an obsessive nutter? Laughing

It's not that difficult to understand.

- You might have a contract offering you membership and communication confirming membership (and even that's debatable)

BUT

- The SCGB have not delivered on that contract by actually making you a member.

This is confirmed by your lack of a membership number and by the subsequent email rejecting your membership application.

You can go ahead and sue them for breach of contract if you want to but the plain and simple truth of the matter is that you are not currently a member of the SCGB

No and I don't intend to, I'm not the one making repeated assertions about a membership contract.

You can waffle all you like about guaranteed payment and automated receipt of payment mails, Just answer the one question:

Was any money transferred to SCGB from your account?

Yes, she says it is quite clear that a contract does not exist without a "consideration" - a payment. If money has passed from your alter ego to SCGB then a contract exists, if not then it doesn't. He seems unwilling to disclose whether any money was taken from his account, but maybe he's so busy posting on here he hasn't had time to check on such a trivial and unimportant detail.

Just to clarify :

"A contract must be "met with" or "supported by" consideration to be enforceable; also, only a person who has provided consideration can enforce a contract. In other words, if an arrangement consists of a promise which is not supported by consideration, then the arrangement is not a legally enforceable contract"

Hmm. Wikipedia says a consideration can be a promise of a consideration. i.e. He has promised to pay the fee so a consideration on his side is part of the agreement.

A good example would be a contract with a builder. He agrees to do the work, you agree to pay him (in stages or on completion). You have a contract without money having to exchange hands there and then.

I'm not sure your argument holds up. Best check with your lawyer again.

Hello. I didn't expect my first ever post to be about contract law but here goes - I came here looking for latest conditions in the Leogang area LOL. I'm not a lawyer but I get involved in a lot of contracts and I talk to lawyers all the time. First thing to say is that contract law is almost never straightforward so the only real way of testing it is in court. However, in my lowly opinion, the offer made by the ski club via email to "DG" would not be an "invitation to treat" and that's because it is an offer made to an specific individual, to a specific personal email address. An "invitation to treat" is more commonly an item on display in a shop, something shown in an advertisement or an item up for auction - ie it is on offer to anybody which is why the seller gets the opportunity to decide whether or not they want to enter into a contract and money normally has to change hands to cement it. Had "DG" responded to an advert by the ski club in a newspaper then that may well be an "invitation to treat". So the offer was made via email, the offer was accepted, the offeree complied with the terms of the offer and "promised to pay" by way of giving the ski club his direct debit details as asked for and, whether or not they went through with collecting the money, a binding contract was forged. Personally I would say he is a member and that the ski club are in breach but spending dosh on all this would be mental. The whole issue of whether money changed hands though is a red herring. Haven't read all 90 odd pages but it all sounds rather extraordinary. Why can't he just be allowed to join?

@olderscot, No need, You're example is different. It's a contract that stipulates that the payment will be made after some or all of the services have been received. SCGB didn't say "we will provide services , then you must pay for them at a later date". The services provided by SCGB are provided after payment is made. In this case a promise of payment does not make the contract enforceable until payment is actually made.

The membership application is only very recent. The other 80 odd pages are to do with other complaints DG/SCGB Insider has against the ski club. He's been banned from SCGB and this thread is full of him slagging off the Ski Club. He may have some valid arguments but his way of presenting them is far from mature/professional and he is often malicious in my opinion.

To understand SCGB history, buy this entertaining book
A BRIEF HISTORY OF DECLINE not by Stephen Hawking
The SCGB’s post-1950s fall from grace. Part 1: The Bronze Age

When I joined the Ski Club of Great Britain as a non-comedic 9-year-old boy in 1962, there seemed to be no limit to the wonders of the Alps. These huge mountains were beyond any human scale – massive, stormy, scary and awe-inspiring. Some genius with a cable and a pair of tugging cabins had turned them into the biggest playgrounds of snow imaginable. As a small boy, nothing was more exciting and more opposite to life in The Smoke ... but skiing was no walk in the park.

Fitted out with lace-up leather ski boots (there were two sets of laces on each boot to do up – inner and outer) and a pair of all-wood skis with screw-on edges, I did my best to make progress. Early lessons were conducted by severe but friendly Austrian instructors and were strictly lift-free – hours of side-stepping and snowploughing before you went anywhere near a ski lift. Learning new technique was a struggle – the step from stem turn (snowplough) to parallel (via the stem-christie turn) seemed to take forever, because the equipment was so hard to handle. Every evening in the hotel you put your damp black leather boots outside the bedroom door. A member of staff would whisk them away, dry them out during the night, and freshly polish them at the crack of dawn. That ritual was rewarded with a good tip at the end of the week.

My father – Rudy Goldsmith, a Berlin-born pioneer of computerised market research who had originally worked for Gallup - had quickly made money in the 1950s. It earned him the opportunity to introduce me to his favourite sport. In pre-WW2 Germany my dad had himself skied as a child and was passionate to take me to the best places, having me as his schussing companion. My first close encounter with a nursery slope was in 1959, on a seemingly huge but gentle pasture in Kitzbuhel. The U-shaped valley had ideal slopes for learning. By the end of the week I’d progressed to the mid-mountain. Poling and gently schussing through the woods, I vividly remember hearing the call of a cuckoo – is that possible?

But it was tough going. The first thing to do every morning was to lace up those boots (maybe 10 minutes work) and then tighten them all after about 30 minutes skiing. Obviously all that had to be done with gloves off – just imagine, in mid-winter. Then there were the cable bindings that pulled the boots onto the skis. These had a loop of cable which went around the heel of each boot, controlled by a lever at the front, which could take all one’s strength to close. I recall trying so hard to shut that lever that it once induced a nose-bleed. But all that graft was rewarded one day in 1962.

Taking the SCGB Bronze Test, 1962

To pass the bronze test of the Ski Club of Great Britain you had to prove that you’d grasped the basics of ski school during the week. But you probably wouldn’t take this test on your first ski holiday – it took that long to make progress on the old equipment. And so it was, one Friday in 1962, on a slope at St Anton in Austria, that I first met a representative of the Ski Club of Great Britain. A group of us (mainly) kids were lined up and asked to perform a number of rudimentary (not my father’s full name, which was Rudolph) techniques ... straight-running, stem, stem turn, kick-turn, side-step and so on. You didn’t take the test unless you could pass it, and the awards ceremony (there were also silver, and extremely demanding gold, medals) was a big occasion for British skiers every week.

The SCGB rep was a king of the hill, warmly hosted by the tourist office in each Alpine resort - a real boost to the village’s ski school. If you didn’t do lessons, you didn’t pass the SCGB tests. The Swiss and Austrian ski villages all offered their national tests - also with bronze, silver and gold medals - but the medals of the Ski Club of Great Britain were more sought-after. They were tougher to pass than the ‘tourist medals’ and operated to 'proper British standards'. All this stuff was the brainchildren of Sir Arnold Lunn - the Great British ski pioneer - and his fellow travellers. One has to remember that Lunn's forefathers essentially introduced skiing to the Alps, by transporting Norway's invention - the ski - to places that had never thought of this wheeze. The Brits were revered!

A gold-qualified British skier, with a gold SCGB medal, was simply the best British skier on the mountain and well up with the locals. For example, to pass the 'gold' you had to ski breakable crust (on those wooden skis), and perform perfect parallel turns. The Brits were serious players in the soon-to-boom industry of winter sports. But what hadn’t happened at this point was the explosion of charter flights, package holidays, and mega resorts to accommodate thousands. Things were, however, starting to take off. People were starting to make money and enjoy a lot more recreational time. In Scotland, in particular, skiing was on the threshold of mass-participation. Maybe that's where the rot first set in for the Ski Club of Great Britain. The toffs were about to lose control to the Jocks, on home ground.

To answer your question ... the SCGB confirmed a membership contract with DG on 6 January. That contract was based on a payment guarantee (direct debit data), demanded from DG by SCGB. The contract, which included the provision of that direct debit, was confirmed with a "payment receipt".

DG's bank account was checked two days ago (23 Jan). It showed no payment to the SCGB or recorded direct debit arrangement.

It was NOT the SCGB's option not to honour the contract. The SCGB is in breach of contract. This (and the original illegal expulsion from the Club in 2013, under the SCGB's published Rules) will be pursued in due course.

Well, I've been involved in contracts quite a bit (though not recently) but I don't have a feel for what the law regarding your recent membership application. I suppose you could find out by going to court, but I would have thought that any court would consider your case to be a waste of its time.
