Proud of the new club site!

Well Martyn's been busy , more to get the membership renewals up on line but
the rest of the sites structure is looking good.

I especially like the random picture function :0) ... nothing to do with a
piccy of Morph as a Baby being on there you see!

http://www.101club.org/

Anyway, seems that those of you who can't find a stamp now have no excuse
not to join up on line. I have to say that the Club mag "Six stud" is worth
every penny, along with the insurance discounts and club parts you can't
afford not to be in even if your only day dreaming of 101's

I'll also have no excuse for looking at a snail mail envelope for weeks
thinking "must post that".

Now that you have online forms and secure stuff and methods of
confirming our identity have you considered doing an online version of
the proxy vote form for the AGM? You'd get atleast one more form back
per year then (it can't just be me that has no fax and hasnt sent a
snail mail letter in months?)

You must have got all the ones of morph then as i didnt get it once!.
I sat there for ages refreshing it and eventually gave up and just had
a browse of the random images folder (thankyou for making it
browseable!).
I did get that one of the (presumably prototype?) GS with the big
dumper tyres and the powered trailer about 1 in 5 refreshes though!)

I've never returned one and unlikely to. If I did feel strongly enough to
have a overwhelming concern to cast a vote I'd do it in person. I would
hazard a guess many people don't actually understand or care to understand
the underlying politics of the groups set up, few will be able to put names
to faces or be aware of if an individual is likely to be any better than the
next person at a particular role. Of the two people I actually know well
enough to say, "Yes I'd vote for them, they have done a good job", they have
openly stated they want to stand down from their posts which kind of leaves
me in a quandry IYSWIM, I'm aware of another possible up for election but I
may be confused and be voting for someone I neither know or have ever met.
But yes I can do parasitic and git but probably too bone to do both at the
same time. ;-)

Yes indeedy. I was unsure if it was our Steve or A.N. Other but I'm sure he
will make a good erm.. er thingy wotsit and I feel he would fit the post
very well :-D (Parts developement summat if my drunken memory serves me
right wasn't it?)

HELL NO! That was the best bit!

Right now I've taken the Piss big time I would like I do appreciate all the
efforts of those on the Committee or what ever the correct collective name
is.

(firstly - I'm not sure how well what im trying to say is going to
come across here. I'm fairly crap at articulating myself!. Its not my
intention to annoy or offend!)

You talk about the AGM like you are the only club or group that has
trouble getting people to turn up for anything official!.
I thought it was the same with anything voluntary?

I've done some time as a voluntary commitee member (this was with a
scout group). Mention the words 'AGM' and nobody wants to know. It
doesnt mean that they dont care about the entitity itself though!.

I like to think that I'm showing my support of the club by joining
(and paying to do so). I enjoy reading the mag too.
Yes the cheaper insurance and access to parts is also a benefit - but
since the club publish these benefits to would-be members you can't
really blame people for joining for them.

Like Lee says - I dont feel particularily personally attached to the
commitee - I dont know how well most of the people are doing their
job, so i dont see that my vote for or against them would mean much?

I can show support for the club by joining it (in my mind). Ask me to
sign a form which said 'thanks for everything i appreciate it' and
send it to the club and i'd see much more point in it.

It just seems like you saying what you believe in, which is fine by
me!. I know what i'm trying to get at even if i can't manage to get it
across in words.

I'm not the most organised person and i'm usually fairly busy. To me
personally having to send a letter or a fax is a pain. Email/online
isnt - thats the only reason i suggested it.

I actually filled out the proxy form last year. I then carried it
around meaning to send it by fax when i got chance (The only fax i had
access to is in one of the places i work at and only really at limited
times of day) and i never got the chance.
Im not trying to make excuses here i'm just trying to make the point
that to me online stuff is easier and is why i try to do as much as i
can over the net. I have to spend most of my day sitting in rooms full
of computers - often waiting for them to finish doing things, so have
lots of chance to do online stuff!

Ok - I see your point here. A bit of me thinks that I get enough
'value' out of the money i have put into the club though.

Then i might not renew my 'support' of the club next year (though
having someone sensible vote would probably be more sensible).

I think you have pretty much won me over about why i should vote. My
desire for a web based voting system still stands though. Why should
it matter how the voting is done if it gets done?

If i was to manage to get to a fax machine tommorrow could i fax off a
handwritten proxy vote form (following the format of last years) or is
it too late by then?

Just to try and proove that i could do it if i put my mind to it i had
2 attempts at faxing today and was outwitted by the fax machine at
work a couple of times and then by the windows XP fax software. I can
make my pc beep onto my mobile phone answering machine but not talk to
a proper fax machine.
This is why i suggested an online form. I can work them!

Oh yes there are nasty mean looking beasties they are as well. I don't
like Apaches flying over. Tornadoes, Jaguars, Chinooks, Hercules etc
just don't have that "I'm built to kill and thats what I'm going to
do" look.
