    Small Request

    And I may catch a little hell for this. Is there ANY way that when SCMAS makes announcements that come from the BOD on anything that they are also made so that ALL of the members can read/see them?

    I find it hard to figure out what is going on with the SCMAS when I can't see the "members forum" which, when it comes to announcements that effect EVERYONE is pretty unfortunate. It would just be nice for all, even those of us who live so far away and can't attend 2 meetings so we are just "registered members", to know what's going on.

    you should be able to see all "members only" posts,threads, forums, etc now as the BOD is no more. the new rule is simply to have 25 posts and then you are a member. you thus are registered and like the majority should be able to see all posts now.

    Personally I can't see anything still?? But this wasn't requested for myself. I'm just asking if its possible that any past,future announcements be made through the general discussion forum. I honestly don't really even know what you're talking about there not being a BOD lol?? Just seems like everyone should know about the announcements?

    The board disbanded? When did this happen? I haven't seen any posts about that at all. I don't even see a "members only" forum anymore either.

    I'll send you what I sent them. I don't know if i'm aloud to post things from the members only area because it is still info meant for those who have 25 or more post (and thus are members). Those persons with 24 or less posts can see this thread and thus I believe i'd be in the wrong to copy the members only info and paste it here. But, I'll happily pm anyone with 25 or more post the info from the members only area until you can contact an admin to gain ability to see the members only area. PM sent DV3

    Juan, very good point and I will ensure that announcements/meetings/events are posted here. That way newbies and members will all see it.

    I haven't moved everyone over to the "club member" usergroup yet. So if you were not a member prior to the disbanding of the BOD you still won't see the member's only forums. Was waiting until there was resolution with the club funds before moving everyone, as those that were members are the ones who should have say in the funds and that is the only thing we have right now to track that.

    I personally am not asking for a vote in funds, althought I do have some opinion on that lol, nor am I asking to be able to vote, or hold whatever power I have being a member of the SCMAS. All I'm saying is that when something is to be said, it should be said to everyone so that everyone is in the loop. There is at least one person in this thread that has spoken up about not knowing the BOD disbanded +me, and I'm sure there are more out there. While I definitely agree with having a "members only" forum, I think announcements such as a board dissolution might be better served in the General forum as that impacts everyone, not just those who are considered "members."

    Just because someone may have just signed up for the website doesn't mean that they shouldnt be privy to announcements like that. This is just my 2 cents of course, doesn't mean much haha.

    I sort of agree with Jay. I don't know all the details but it comes across like someone decided, "hey I'm not gonna be a board member any more and nobody else is gonna be either". I understand stepping down from a position but I have never heard of getting rid of the position altogether.

    I mean imagine if the real world worked like that. Obama doesn't want to president any more so he just announces that we will no longer have one. ??

The only real difference will be that since there is no BOD there will be no meetings or events planned by them. Our greatest desire here is for the club to rise from the ashes like a phoenix. This decision has not been taken lightly. With all the drama, conspiracy theories, slander etc that has happened over the last couple of years, we feel that it is the only way to move forward. This allows members to step up and move the club forward with no questions of biased loyalties, sponsor control etc. Eric aka calvin415 and Paul Murfman will act as a disciplinary committee to handle anyone who gets out of line in the meantime. Others will stay on as website admin as well. So please look at this as the dawn of a new day and new direction. Not as an end but as a new beginning. If you have questions, please feel free to ask and be the change you wish to see.
    Since it isn't secret, here is what Jason posted up in the members forum. The concept is that it wasn't that the BOD didn't want to continue being the BOD. The issue is that rumor and here-say derail whoever is on the BOD to the point that they are not able to do the things expected of them. So the hope here is that everyone can communicate about reefing, that people can use the site to host meetings, that people can get together and make this club as it was. Not by having 5 people just say "well than I'll do it", but instead by having the camaraderie build naturally and a strong group of individuals eventually emerge and restore the BOD.

    good intentions maybe but i still agree that someone else should get a shot ...the past BOD may not have dealt with the "rumors and here-say" as well as someone else might
