Bill,

Another home run! I want to thank you for independent and unsolicited verification of what I've been telling Aaron, Kastle, and Mr. Dickitt.

Dave,

I think we can develop both a set of values and set of objectives from the mission statement and grouping of ideas above. That is if we are all in agreement on them.

Aaron/Kastle,

Don't take this feedback as a lack of a desire to get organized. Just understand that we're going to have probably three groups of club members. A core group from which you can expect some level commitment, a larger group that is very involved and attends frequent events but is not going to commit to any sort of regimen, and a third group that we've not even discussed yet.

The third may be the largest group. Members who may never attend a meeting and may only go to 1 or 2 events in as many years, but who are willing to associate with the club, pay dues, and maybe even put a sicker on their cars or carry a membership card if it gets them a discount somewhere the regularly shop.

I believe that creating a set of membership rules that alienates any one of these groups is a detriment to the club. I also believe you'll agree if you just relax a little and think about it.

Hey, look at it this way. This is only the first issue we've discussed. I've got several more.

-Bud
