Right after it was announced that the motion is not passed, following the cheers is a (same) female voice 'tell them they'd better step up to the plate'.

I personally am not impressed with the immature comments that I heard. Just wish I could amplify/enhance it all to see what else was said, ' off mic'.
to what end? and to what good? to prove that IBT members have opinons that may differ to what their members have. I think we have all figured that one out.

Talk of impeaching - also to what end and exactly as the female voice says - "who? will step up to the plate??? not just for President but for all the other positions too. do the units have volunteers running to sign up?? How about the regions do they??? Who has the time and committement from the ranks of these forums - where we say give us shorter events - we work - we have families yada yada -

I am not a fence sitter but we need to keep our focus, if we have a focus - somewhat on track...

Yeah, GT is right...to what end. We already know where they stand.
Just my old military intelligence work surfacing again.
My apologies to any offended.

Nice words GT. The club has a long way to go.

Yep, as GT noted, we all have our thoughts we are entitled to. It does get frustrating thinking about this wonderful club having it's issues, but then there were a lot of people who made the Perry gig so from a visibility standpoint, if I were running the shop, I'd think I must be doing okay. Not great, it's not several thousand rigs like in the past, but there are a lot of reasons for that - higher gas prices being the most visible and an easy culprit.

With that many people at Perry, though, maybe it's me just not understanding. I can remember the other time I was wrong about something. Today. Actually, even this afternoon. Matter of fact, moments ago.

It's my intention to sit back for a bit, get a feel from the club, try to get a good grasp of all sides, and then formulate a plan. A lot of you have been doing this already, but I have only just joined the club thanks to the 4CU folks. It's the old "seek first to understand and then correlate that with what I think, and then try to communicate back my thoughts in a way that "they" understand" syndrome.

Barry

Please be thoughtful and considerate in your posting. More than preaching to the choir, this thread is starting to jostle your fellow choir members.

Brekkie was good, a tad late, but good. I enjoy a leisurely and later in the day brekkie. It helps to stave off the boredom.

Don,

Well put by Walt and yourself. And Wally would have been how old today? It is hard to believe that his vision continues to shine through all the haze in today's world. A man of vision and passionate about making life as uncomplicated and inspirational as one possibly could. Happy Birthday Wally.

And Thanks for the reminder Sharon. How could we on the forum not recognize Wally's BD. Now I have to go have a cold one in his honor.

Barry
