15 Years later Australia with their small band of Interlopers now say we must Follow.
The AEC12OA executive are not in any position to dictate terms unless it's specific to their mould and subsequent production of what is called an IE12. They had their chance with the ARYA and various opportunities to compromise and unite with the Majority of ARYA EC12 Owners. Wasted opportunities!
ARYA history now reflects the effort and lengths numerous people went too in order to place the welfare of the EC12 Class first and foremost. This was Not
acceptable to the OA executive and subsequently, their dogmatic attitude has resulted in loss of National Recognition
. With that track record, why would anyone follow their example?
31 December 2012, the ARYA close their book on the class and hand over responsibility to those State and Territory councils that wish to accept and protect the future of the EC12 Class.
Sadly, the damage is done and the prospects for National recovery will be Long and Difficult; if at all!!!
