Ok... now we're getting somewhere. It's obvious you have formed an opinion about Rick M. and his management style. So, I'd like to ask how you formed this opinion? Have you worked with the man? Have you attended any meeting with him? It kind of sounds like you're being feed information.Originally posted by PHANTOM 309:
Pissed off chick?? haha,. now thats funny right there i don't care who you are,.. so i,m a pissed off chick with a forked tongue,.now,. brilliant,.(i guess it is just past the 28th day of the month)
the subject is,.
issca broadening its membership by inviting every f&ckin' other wimpala or dinosauer impala to help it limp thru its financial woes,. if texas had a personality and got along with all the bod's and actually had fun,. instead of trying to run things like a military oeration,. i think things would pick up,how about taking the time to write some words of encouragement,. a joke or two,. instead of the anal retentive attitude that prevails,. why not put you doug,. you rustic (whatever your name is),. noel,. big billy kahuna,mebbe paulie too,.and a few others into the driving seat,. guys that we know,. guys that will give a damn,. guys that laugh and joke together poke fun at each other and the rest of us etc,. and could generate an atmosphere of fun,.guys that would actually talk about where things are or aren't going, before it happens,.guys that wouldn't bother sneaking around behind each others backs etc,. guys that might take the time to e-mail some mouthpiece like me and tell'em whats what and mebbe how far outta line or off base they are,.Howsabowt a board of directors and a president that are really enthusiastic? Mebbe some one who has the time and inclination to go and visit the various clubs and their presidents and give em some support? mebbe even share a beer or two,. (there you go lancy boy pick that word apart (howzabowt)
Why doesn't issca buy this forum,. the other one is stone cold,and on life support,
Smart move getting grail to host the nationals, they know how to do a show,.(will your resignation be posted the day of the nationals lance?? or after?)
Lets face it,. the reason that buick sedans and wagons, and caddys, caprice sedans and wagons, and impala's all hang together is because of the common powerplant,common tranny, common rear ends,. The LT1 that's what's the common denominator,the reverse cooled mpfi chevy V8 that we all love so,. not a friggin v6 fwd or something with a carb,and drum brakes,.
You want me to be blunt? Fire the present leadership thats draining the life blood out of issca,. and put people in that care,.christ when you've got a perfect mouthpiece PRO like Big billy Kahuna and even he doesn't last a year?
Billy Harper didn't last a year? now there was a dedicated enthusiastic fella willing to unselfishly donate time effort and resources to the cause,.he's retired too so he could definitely have devoted some time,.
Fair enough? full steam ahead,. the hillbillies aren't smart enough to understand what i,m alluding to,. so there you have it,.
ps Doug,. there are good reasons for me not stepping up,. i,d be looking to be too vindictive for comments made against me,.i don't play nice, and much like the present administration i call things as i see 'em so recognizing my limitations and forked toungue and pms problems it'd be counter productive to invite me to play,. just invite me to pay and i'll step up. [/QB]
It's funny that I heard some of the same complaints when Harvey was Pres. He was too pushy, too heavy handed, didn't like his style... blah, blah, blah. I just don't get it.... we all handle things differently; it's the intention that's important.
Do you think Rick has intentions that are not for the good of the club? If you do then that's important and I want to hear them. If you don't then you're acting/speaking out of emotion instead of logic. (back to my pi$$ed off chick example again).
You have a nice idea about who else COULD be Pres, but guess what, none of them stepped up and put their name in the hat, including me. Weather you like his style or not, you have to respect Rick for being willing to do the job. It takes a lot of time and effort. And although I like your idea of telling jokes and drinking beer... real work still needs to get done.
This section confuses me a bit. You list a bunch of the current Directors and say that maybe they should take over the driver seat. Then you say you need a BoD that's really enthusiastic. Are you saying that the current Bod isn't??noel,. big billy kahuna,mebbe paulie too,.and a few others into the driving seat,. guys that we know,. guys that will give a damn,. guys that laugh and joke together poke fun at each other and the rest of us etc,. and could generate an atmosphere of fun,.guys that would actually talk about where things are or aren't going, before it happens,.guys that wouldn't bother sneaking around behind each others backs etc,. guys that might take the time to e-mail some mouthpiece like me and tell'em whats what and mebbe how far outta line or off base they are,.Howsabowt a board of directors and a president that are really enthusiastic?
Who's doing this "sneaking around"??? And what are they trying to do??
Communication is not perfect across a National Club... and the BoD needs to work on that amongst themselves and with the members.
We're gonna just have to keep our eye on the prize if this club is to prosper... all this petty crap will just hold us back.
