was this necessary
It might be difficult to impossible to get objective responses to this question. But, I'm interested in what others think.
My woodturning club has a demo day, or two, every year. We try to hire a professional turner to come in for the demo.
Several months ago, I queried Bill Grumbine about his availability and charges. He told me. I passed the info on to our club president.
Yesterday the club president announced the selection of another individual to do the demo. OK, that's life.
I asked the club president if he wanted me to notify Bill that he would not be invited. Club pres. said he didn't think that would be necessary and even questioned me as to why I thought it would be.
OK, my opinion. Just common courtesy makes it 'necessary'. I have corresponded with Bill. Gentleman that he is, he understands.
Now, if you can divorce the fact that Bill is a friend and member here, and be objective and truthful, I want the jury to voice whether they believe such notification is necessary or not.
