By no means Focker was my post an attack on any member of the committee or the committee as a whole (why would I ? they are a hardworking bunch of people), it was to simply ask the question rather than demand a change, just a pity you took my post out of context, made your own assumptions and decided to get personal towards me as well. Again not cool.
Errr sorry XC crusier but you have taken my post out of context....I just mentioned you only because being a commenter on here, you were at the AGM and thought you were on the committee? (of which struggling Smithy was having a go at...).
Aren't you doing the newsletter?? Just picked up the latest today - very good
struggling wrote:The post I put earlier in this thread is my view and mine alone, has nothing to do with xc crusier he had just posted a question so to bracket his views with mine James is a tad unfair to him.
James you know me, its either black or white. I will express my view if i am passionate about it and if people get offened then tuff.
Also you make note to personal agendas and dummy spits, dont really think I have a personal agenda as I had already explanned to some fellow riders that I wouldnt be able to race this year as family takes the front seat, Just asking asking questions and viewing views. As for the dummie spit, if thats what you wish to call it then I am glad to receive it.
Ok Chris....what I was alluding too (which in the big picture has little to do with you), is every year someone has a good ole go at the poor ole committee on this forum (and its you this time) and achieves nothing except winding people up. Before we had a forum, if you wanted to have your say, you would front up to a committee meeting in person to get your point across....or speak to the person in charge - in this instance Rusty. That would be the most mature and positive way to achieve things perhaps?
When I mentioned the word "agenda" it was in a sentence about genuinely being on the committee for a cause you want or change you would like to see and I was actually taking the piss out of myself for having my own agenda in the past - like getting a mtb track in the city called Pukete (do you know what this means?...).
Hey I'm the first to have an opinion and everyone is allowed to have one, but saying a group of people are F&%en a-holes is not really your style is it?
I'm out for the season as well - for reasons like yours and of course with the family direction this committee is taking - of course you would have to agree with me that is a good thing
