Default Abuse of a significant gliding club financial legacy etc

https://arxiv.org/abs/1801.10249

"During the last few years members expressed through a series of informal
meetings with the directors and a series of resolutions at Annual General
Meetings an increasing desire that the directors replace or upgrade the
technical assets with more up to date technology"

The directors did f*all despite a hundred grand in the bank and profitable
continuing operations.

They then acquired a EuroFox tug via a thirty grand donation which has
proven to be very unreliable. The engine is so unreliable that the engine
has partially or totally cut out on at least 2 of 10 separate incidents,
one of which I personally witnessed.

I have 1500 hours gliding and all three diamonds.

I despair.

Guess he is ranting about the BOD and their way of spending money. We had the same problem in our club with a member doing his best to ruin our club. He finally got smart and hauled his glider away and hopefully will never return. Guess the old saying goes, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Nuke the entire USENET from orbit--it's the only way to be sure.
