I was just funnin' ya since you highlighted the "we are maac" thing twice. I was being silly thats all

I understand what Kevin means though (I think?). Us guys that are actively participating in the hobby (not just talking but doing), exploring new things and trying different aspects of the hobby, teaching newcomers, trying to get the most from what the hobby has to offer - and with little negativity towards some aspects that we may not participate directly in - we ARE maac members that should be outspoken and voice our opinions. But in general you hear mainly from the percentage that complain about anything and everything no matter what- allmost for the sake of it primarily as not much else is done about it.

Im my opinion, how much more can an average modeller do to support this hobby and therefore support MAAC, than by just "doing" the hobby, ie, flying and having fun, trying to interest newcomers (adults and kids), contributing to local events and those that nearby clubs put on (supporting the other clubs) and highlighting the hobby in a positive manner?

MAAC Forum

The remedy is simple. Those that do not want to read or see the arguing and whining should ignore the Forum. Do not contribute, do not even open it. It will then be left for the Bitchers and Whiners to bitch and whine to each other. We all know how long that will last.

Sorry Ed I disagree with you.

At the club level we all have those people that bitch and wine at every meeting but does that mean I shouldn't go to the meeting just because they will be there? No I think not. You just have to learn who those people are and know what they do then just ignore them and try and get some constructive and informative discussion going on your own.

Like Kevin said the lead time for stuff published in the MAAC mag is three to four months. Personally I don't want to wait that long to find out some new policy proposal or something similar that may affect my aspect or enjoyment of the hobby. If I can learn about it here first then perhaps I can act to counter or support whatever these proposals may be. It may be just me but I prefer to be PROACTIVE instead or REACTIVE.

I only go to the MAAC website from time to time as it is not updated that often. This site changes minute by minute so I KNOW I am always as up to date as I can be concerning this great hobby of ours. We should not let a few personality conflicts lead the direction this site takes. Rather then closing the topic. if members of this board can not act civilized and respect the wishes of the majority then they should be asked to leave. Do not punish the rest of us because a few can not agree to disagree in a civilized manor.

So to make a long story short please keep the topic open.

JMHO but everyone of us counts here!

Nuff Said!

Hey Jason,
I have an , make the MAAC forum installed
with user fees then we can blame the government
No MAAC isn't perfect, but what is. Fwd concerns to them
not here as it accomplishes zero.
l am apprehensive about the forum and
likely will not use it as it provides the opposite enviroment
of why l enjoy this site. If the forum could be kept as a
constructive information source about MAAC fine, but you
know it won't. The complainers will turn the forum into a
place. Imagine a visitor to the site
reading some of the posts, it might make them think twice
about joining the hobby It's up to you but l hope you
are at least considering serious screening and moderating
as this type of forum can ruin some friendships very fast
Just my feeling.

Has anyone noticed that the supreme irony is that all of this is being discussed in the "General Discussion" section and not in the MAAC section?

Why not go and fight fight there? Better yet, move this thread over there!

We ALL understand the idea behind the MAAC forum.........but leaving it un-moderated could lead to bringing back those again whom wish to destroy what rccanada has taken a year to establish successfully, and turn it into their own personal political agenda. We know WHO they were. Please create a separate area AWAY from the general news area for those who wish to pass their political gas.

Hi All

I agree with ronnieo, and that is why I suggested that this forum be available to Zone Directors only. This would allow directors the opportunity to share what is going on without the banter, discussion, and personal agenda positioning. The zone director could, for example, make a factual statement from the executive minutes by posting the contents of the minutes on the forum. This would be accurate, nonfictional information which the general membership needs to know.

The point being that the zone directors must step up to the plate, in this forum, and communitcate what is going on and why. It is of no conciquence that I have a desire to inform the membership of the factual truths concerning the running of our organization. It must come from your zone directors, the ones we elect to safe guard our best interests in MAAC,

I do not want to offend anyone by my statement, it is just an opinion and is NOT DIRECTED AT ANYONE.
