On Monday 14th October, the attached letter was sent via post and email to Legacy Members, carrying headline details of the proposed majority shareholding in the football club by Rob Couhig. Also included with the letter was this four-page summary of agreements. The full legal document can be viewed by Legacy Members in person at Adams Park between 12-7pm on weekdays until Tuesday 29th October, and in the Caledonian Suite ahead of the match against Sunderland.
At the meeting of Legacy Members on Tuesday 15th October, these slides were presented to members by chairman Trevor Stroud. 343 Legacy Members were present, with around 180 concurrent viewers on the live stream on the WWT Live Stream Facebook page. The stream can be viewed at any time here.
The Trust omitted to send the Summary of Rights of Existing Shareholders; this document has been sent to Legacy Members, and can be downloaded here.
Included in the presentation were two videos from Rob Couhig, who explained his reason for not attending the meeting:

Also included in the presentation was a reading of an open letter, written by Trust president Karen Adams, which can be found here.
At 9pm, emails were sent to all Legacy Members carrying instructions on how to vote. Any member who doesn’t have an email address will receive a postal vote. Please note that some emails may have been caught in the recipient’s junk folder, so Members should be sure to make sure they have received it, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the vote helpline on 07490 987583 if they haven’t. Members who share an email address with another member will receive separate emails to the same address.
Trevor Stroud reiterated on behalf of the club and Trust that it is imperative that Members use their vote; not voting is counted as a vote against the proposal. The Trust board unanimously recommend voting for the proposal.
The voting period will close at midnight on Tuesday 29th October; 75% of all Legacy Members must vote for the proposal in order for Rob Couhig to be successful in becoming a majority shareholder of Wycombe Wanderers.
