Item number two of the Nat's guest requirements is quite childish. I can't even find the words to descibe what I want to say on this matter. :(

Guest Information
The ISSCA National’s is an event for members of the Impala SS Club of America. The following registration guidelines apply for 2005

1. Base registration covers immediate family (spouse, children, parents, siblings).
2. Members registered for the National may bring 2 guests who are not ISSCA members. Any former ISSCA member whose membership has expired in the 12 months prior to the event may not attend as a guest.
3. Provide guest name and expired ISSCA member number, as appropriate.
4. Registration for any additional guest other than provided, will be available at the event for a small fee and will receive passes for all events. This registration will be based on your membership and you will be responsible for your guest.

Let me give you another little tid bit to consider ; GOFASST is gracelessly hosting "The Spring Fling" in Daytona again . They do a great job. All are welcome GOFASST members and non-members .. Same price to all comers. The fee last year covered the HUGE tent for us all to enjoy and the catered lunch. They also sold raffle ticket to anyone for some great prizes; again GOFASST member or not ..Why? for the good of the Impala SS community .. not the good of GOFASST.
Excellent demonstration of the 9th Law of Power:

Law 9
Win through your Actions, Never through Argument

Any momentary triumph you think gained through argument is really a Pyrrhic victory: The resentment and ill will you stir up is stronger and lasts longer than any momentary change of opinion. It is much more powerful to get others to agree with you through your actions, without saying a word. Demonstrate, do not explicate.
Which also explains ISSCA's transgression of Law 5.

Law 5
So Much Depends on Reputation – Guard it with your Life

Reputation is the cornerstone of power. Through reputation alone you can intimidate and win; once you slip, however, you are vulnerable, and will be attacked on all sides. Make your reputation unassailable. Always be alert to potential attacks and thwart them before they happen. Meanwhile, learn to destroy your enemies by opening holes in their own reputations. Then stand aside and let public opinion hang them.
If indeed, Chuck Speera was doing something against the best interests of ISSCA, all they had to do was bring it to light. That all anyone was asking for I believe.

(Above quotes from Joost Elfer's book, the 48 Laws of Power)
What's the big deal? Anyone can attend. If you want to play (compete), you pay (fee). Easy. Give squat, get squat.
