David,

the "List Race Entrants" function is "being developed". The Internal Error you reported has been fixed but not yet deployed, that will happen when the function is completed for Pam to test at Bendigo before release to all.

Best of luck tomorrow night - on the track and in the tower!

The president/ and secretariat  has no power – the pres position is a chair who directs the flow and controls the meeting.

The Delegates need to understand their power and embrace it not abuse it.

 

And to end my tirade ....... glass house management.

 

Keep the plebs informed and be accountable for your actions

I think the masses would be happy ....most of the time.

 

Cheers

 

Ian

I actually ran against him for President and had the numbers but my terms were conditional on having John Lane from Qld as vice.

I could see little point in holding the chair with Whiting, Laybutt and Erdman (in the back ground) white anting everything I tried to change.

This prophesy came true in that the guy who did replace him only lasted one term – he complained they wouldn’t let him do anything!!

Anyway Victoria  ran scared of QLD in a position of “power”and that was that.

I hung up my shingle and retired to club Treasurer and Membership Secretary.

The stupid thing and most frustrating to me is :

G’day David.

 

I found it an extremely frustrating time actually.

 

I had paid my dues coming through the ranks so to speak.

 

State Pres

Co delegate

Delegate

 

And then VP

The trouble was Richard Erdmann was the President and I have never met a more ignorant self centred person in my life!

He made it very plain that the AKA was his and it would follow his direction.

 

Part 2 to follow (max 2000 letters)
