Chris Parks replied to David Arnold's discussion A comprehensive list of the positive things KA and the board has done since taking over
"Well, finally some sense is starting to be seen, better later than never. I still don't see why any club needs an umbrella organisation unless they are are afraid of the dark?? The idea of cutting off the money tree and stopping the flow to the…"

Chris Parks replied to Neville Scullion's discussion Is this forum become barren?
"Five pages and though I have not read them all I can guess what most say. I joined karting so my son could race but I never did, I just enjoyed the technical side of it and the day we blew the works CRG team into the weeds will forever live in my…"

Chris Parks replied to Ian Mooney's discussion Who was part of AKA and now no longer a member of KA
"Chris Parks, left years ago when people refused to see that governance was not the answer. I don't think I ever held any positions but I always helped out where I could between helping my son race. I developed the original adjusters that became…"

Chris Parks replied to Ken Seeber's discussion Notice of Disciplinary Tribunal from KA for Ken Seeber
"Back for my bi-monthly visit and nothing has changed. So sad, the same people supporting the KA by being members and unable to come to terms with the simple fix of the clubs resigning and going about their business with no interference. It does not…"

Chris Parks replied to Di Smith's discussion Massive Investment in New Timekeeping Technology for Karting Australia Clubs.
"Talk about beat a dead horse, in one hand they feed it and in the other had they want all the bits they don't like dead and have been rabbiting on in the same vein for at least 15 years so the plan must be working. Good business practise, if it…"

Chris Parks replied to Neville Scullion's discussion 2016 AGM
"Quote:.....All I see and hear are the majority of karters whingeing and bitching about how bad things are, yet when it comes to the crunch, they may as well be standing naked in the artic.  The karting fraternity needs to stand up for…"

Chris Parks replied to Benno's discussion Ideas for boosting numbers at club days?
"I wish I had a dollar for every time I have had this conversation or seen it aired on a forum. Face facts, very few kids who start in cadets reach senior levels in karts, they simply lose the interest or more likely the parents lose interest because…"

Chris Parks replied to Howard Parker's discussion Toowoomba club
"<If clubs close down the members would have to move to B clubs>  Hold the phone, why is the club closing down, it isn't and doesn't have to all they are doing is refusing to be affiliated to the KA which is a good thing. Fax…"

Chris Parks replied to richard gagie's discussion van Doorn (15 years), McCleverty (10 years)
"I always took active members to be those that either worked in the management of the club or raced, those that did neither if not a parent always puzzled me. My thoughts on what I see discussed here is that no one has ever taken action and no one…"

Chris Parks replied to richard gagie's discussion van Doorn (15 years), McCleverty (10 years)
"Neville, you are falling back to wanting an organisation that is proven not to work even given the safeguards built in to it. The real reason it won't work and I have raised this a thousand times in the past is that the members are not active…"

Chris Parks replied to richard gagie's discussion van Doorn (15 years), McCleverty (10 years)
"David, of course you are right, power corrupts is an old saying that unfortunately proves to be true in a lot of cases. I, like Neville have been in and around committee based clubs for most of my life and have seen that occur but at local level it…"

Chris Parks replied to richard gagie's discussion van Doorn (15 years), McCleverty (10 years)
"Neville, your points are exactly why belonging to an affiliate causes issues, the longer the line of communication the less gets done, keep it local and the members have a true voice in the management decisions important to the club and can carry…"
