‘I’ve been to­tally let down’

Isis Town and Country - - News -

NOT EV­ERY­ONE is happy with the RSL Queens­land tri­bunal’s decision to ban Isis RSL sub-branch pres­i­dent Roy Owen for six months.

Glen Tan­cred is one of the men who com­plained to the RSL about Mr Owen, but the Viet­nam veteran will now no longer have any­thing to do with the RSL.

“I’m s****y,” Mr Tan­cred said on Fri­day. “Seven months of this and it goes down the tube.”

Mr Tan­cred and sev­eral col­leagues had just un­suc­cess­fully at­tempted to force Mr Owen to hand over the keys to the build­ing, and he was so un­happy with the way the RSL han­dled the process he said he would can­cel his mem­ber­ship.

“I don’t care now,” Mr Tan­cred said.

“We’re try­ing to do the right thing by the club. The club be­longs to Childers. It’s not owned or run by the pub­lic but it is Childers’ club.

“I feel I’ve been to­tally let down.”

Mr Tan­cred said he was con­sid­er­ing tak­ing the is­sue to the na­tional body.
