Great work everyone! Our group came together and we've successfully nominated 6 of our 3D-aholics to the board.

There were terrific questions raised at the meeting, and a good discussion followed.

Our nominees are:
Joel B. (Gotballs P-38)
Joe G. (MCSGUY)
Azhar (Azhar)
Garreth F. (racerxky)
Lee P. (Earl of Whirl)
Steve (pro bro steve)


They will quickly campaign in order to be voted in by December.
We'll post details and voting instructions on the thread soon.
Thanks again everyone for showing up and supporting our cause!

Meeting Minutes (3D version):

FPV was banned because:
  • The board feels the field is not a sutable size for that activity
  • Because the board didn't like what some pople said about the AMA on the internet
  • And because the AMA is going to change the rules to allow you to fly FPV without a buddy box but still always within line of sight. The board does not seem to be in favor of this change.

The 3D mob nominated several people during the open nominations potion of the meeting to the obvious chagrin of the club president and other members. Those nominated have until October the 25th to come up with a platform and send it back to the webmaster. They should be ~140 words in length.

We learned that
  • Board meetings are open to anyone but they are at DigiPen at 7pm on a Wednesday.
  • Decisions are being made at these meetings with little or no input from the membership at large.
  • There are 4 seats open on the board. When these individuals are elected they will vote amongst themselves to determine who gets what position, similar to how the British parliamentary system works. You dont vote for a 'Membership Director' you vote for some guys you like and they pick what post they want amongst themselves.
  • The club bylaws are only available when you are logged in hidden when you are not logged in, but available without authentication, from a sub-menu of the documents section.

OK, I can't PM more than 2 people at once, so to heck with it.
Here is the audio capture from tonight's meeting.
Please excuse the shuffling noises of the recorder being moved around.
It gets juicy when FPV is being discussed, and board nominations happen.
I've posted this to YouTube, but it is unlisted which means it can't be searched for or viewed by anyone who doesn't have this link.

BTW- I think that the picture racerxky posted should be his "sketch" promoting his candidacy.
