Trying to get started but its already done
Since the 'green light' news first broke the board has made every effort to convene in order to take the first step forward. In the pre-meeting discussions among ourselves we made it very clear that designating a project manager would be a solid beginning. Further, we spoke about enlisting the services of an independent designer who we have identified in a previous post. (which could be obtained at little or no cost to the Club)
When we met as a Board on Tuesday we were joined by the team that is doing the preliminary work at Sekani and were told by them that it is too late to pursue another course of action.(All the logistics meetings with the bike club had already taken place and all the Parks officials had already come and gone and would not be back) From these pronouncements I felt that if we engaged an independent designer that Jeff and his team would not be forthcoming with the preliminary guidelines that arose from their confidential meetings prior to the 'green light 'announcement. In this environment I do not feel comfortable having Tom Schot, the independent we have in mind, make travel commitments to come up and get started.
I wish Jeff had convened the meeting, so that the board could have conducted business and reached some conclusions on this matter and others. In the end it was good to meet the team and hear from them how they had diveed up the park amongst themselves.
Is this the juncture where we finally accept the formation of a Valley Club? Could this be our point in history where there is finnaly enough to go around? From what I gathered this team has all the essential elements it needs to go forth on its own. Gordy
