    I've seen 1,000's of posts on this subject but haven't commented since I haven't chaired or run a HT in years. But I can't understand why, if clubs truly want to prevent their workers/members from...

    You've got to create trust that where you're pointing the dog, she's going to find something if she heads out "there".
