    So does this mean you both are running unopposed or not running at all and replacements are urgently needed?

    President: None

    Replacements urgently needed. I'm not running again. Been on board for 6 years or so, time to let new folks take over

    We need some more new blood on BOD! Some of us have been on (or on and off and on) the board for a long time. It isn't a big time commitment, and the best part is that whoever runs for President is taking over the club in the best shape its been in since I've been around.

    While you all know I love TCMAS - it is time for new blood.

    Like Patent I have been in the BOD in some form for the last 7 years, I think I.


    Ditto - I also have been on the BOD in some position pretty much since I joined. It's time for TCMAS to bring some new members into the BOD.

    We have done a ton to get TCMAS to the state it is in and I am looking forward to seeing what some new peeps will do with the club.

    Hey Ryan Snodgrass...........................................

    Angie, I'm not totally opposed to running for a position but I do have limitations on what I'm allowed to do and I'd need to talk it over first to make sure I'm fully able.

    My proximity to the cities would also be something I'd want others opinions on from those who are/have been/closely involved with those on the BOD. Certainly this is not likely much of an issue with phones and internet but having you at so many meetings has been great!

    The BOD meets in person once a year so location really is not a big deal. Mainly just need to be able to log on at least a couple times a week or more if you can and give input on anything being discussed in the forums.

    You both have my contact info - give me a call any evening this week

    Why does this post instill fear and panic?
