Go and read the Mem & Arts. You clearly don't understand the Article 36 procedure.
36.A poll of the whole Club shall be taken if either one third of the members of the Council or 200 members of the Club shall within three months of the passing of a resolution in a Council Meeting or General Meeting lodge with the Secretary a petition in writing signed by the petitioning members Protesting against such resolution and Containing a requisition that a poll of the whole Club be taken upon such resolution.
Upon receipt of the petition the Secretary shall publish in the next issue but one of the Club magazine to be distributed after the petition shall have been lodged with him full details of the petition and incorporate a voting slip therein specifying the date (not being less than 28 days after the date of publication) when all votes must be received by the Secretary. When voting has closed as aforesaid the votes shall be counted and the resolution confirmed or rescinded in accordance with the majority of votes cast. If the voting be equally divided the resolution shall be confirmed. Provided always that any action taken upon such resolution prior to receipt of such petition shall be valid.
37.All decisions arrived at by a poll of the whole Club shall bind the Club and the Council for six months
Can't see where I am wrong on article 36. If the poll succeeds it will be off the agenda for 2011 but not for 2012 by my reading. Another resolution in favour of charitable status would be required along with one amending the M&AA. However the motion in favour would be the minor hurdle, compared to the 75% required to amend the M&AA.
