I am not sure if this is good or ??? BUT,

Believe it or not the OLD System might STILL EXCIST???? and that is one of the questions that KNSW has been trying to clear up, for it may hold an awfull lot of assets???? ... Like .................... TDF? .................... CMS??? ................ +etc

Problem seems to be that the NEW doesn't think KNSW has any rights to the information to clarify it all????

Interesting Times?

I agree with Max, It is much easier to fix the system we have got than to start again. 

The ideal set up would to get rid of upper administrationn, and go back to a honorary secretariat possibly with a paid secretary and get rid of all the crazy rules and money making schemes.

Noel and all VHKA Members,

I have just received and will now forward out to you all, the proposed Karting NSW resolution upon which our club has been asked to vote on, as a club.

I have no intention of putting the proposal to the social media as that is not my task.

Noel, I personally am a strong believer in our Karting System (Note SYSTEM) however I personally do not believe that it is constructed or currently working in the best interest of Karter's and I thought you shared that view.

So what is to be done, to enable Karter's to get back enjoying our beloved sport?

KNSW have suggested a pathway, and are asking that it be considered and acted upon BY THE CLUBS!

Our Club has asked for that to be presented to a club meeting and without any reference to my views that is what is being carried out and our members will decide our (The VHKA's) pathway.

We should listen to the KNSW Board Member and then if needed we could then arrange a KA Representative to address our club, we do have 21 days (21st / 22nd Sept) before we need to vote, all up to our members.

Not trying to stir the pot ( for once) but what is this about?

I have genuinely no idea. Wrong end of the State to attend the meetings. 

Comment by Peter Ward on September 3, 2018 at 8:36

This is an excellent move for Karters to regain control of their sport, We must hope that the other states will follow suit.
