Title: Machine report and dating certificate
Post by: Ashley on 12 April, 2017, 20:38:32
Dear fellow members
Can anyone tell me how long can I expect to wait for a dating certificate and a machine report for my recently completed D7 bantam.
The completed forms were sent to the dating officer and he acknowledged receipt on 9th of November 2016 , the cheque was cashed on the 27th of January 2017 , a total of 22 weeks has passed.

Ashley, something wrong there I think?
See the previous discussion thread on this topic.  We were having a wee moan about waiting 6 weeks - while generally accepting the voluntary nature of the service and the appreciation of the personal effort that is required.
I think from memory 6 weeks seemed to be the longest people were waiting.  Mine was about 6 weeks(early Jan 17 to mid Feb 17).  I didn't get any kind of acknowledgement though.  Was it through Steve the BSAOC Librarian?  (not to be confused with the bantam club?).
We also discussed alternative communications (other than writing which you could do) - I think a general email will get to him was the consensus.
Good luck.
Raymond.
