It was not a well attended event, sadly not everyone watches the debates.
I had to work, furthermore what is the point of showing up to a "debate that there is nobody there to listen? That is a great way to make sure that voters decide who they want based on who's most popular not who has the best ideas and motivation to help lead the club. Who realizes that there aren't any emails going out to club members, and tells there friends, and their disc golfing friends, but doesn't let anyone else know? Even more importantly, A debate is held before all nominations can be accepted?? I accepted my nomination after the date of the "debate" Sp I don't get to speak???? This explanation holds no water. I appreciate your efforts to smooth it over and to show that the SDGA covered its bases, but it's not possible, because it didn't happen. I wrote on Facebook that we had an election where everybody voted, and after we all gave speeches. I had 60+ replies from golfers from all over the country and not one of them could even understand how it was possible, NOBODY HAD EVER EVEN HEARD OF IT! Golly gee, did we forget to have the speeches until after they voted.. better put it in the CHARTER!!
I ask a lot of good questions and nobody seems able or willing to answer them. The overall tone so far indicates defensiveness and skirting the issue. If you'd like to tell yourself it's my fault you are free to do so. If you'd like to tell your friends that I'm not stopping you. You cannot convince me otherwise on this forum nor in person. It's too obvious. ("I guess it needs to be in the charter" What a joke!) This new tactic is really primitive, I guess it needs to be in the charter.. How bout the next time you pull a scam and try saying it needs to be in the charter you need to be excused from the club?
The problem with adding this crap to the charter is that it's such a cock-eyed thing to pull in the first place, everybody would know full and well you did it on purpose if you tried it again.
It doesn't seem that there will be an adequate revision here so I guess it might as well be dropped.. Time for the powers that be to back on track, to move in the right direction, to pull from the vast number of club members that they haven't burned.. Good thing this sport is growing eh guys?
