Sorry for having to post this message here, but it appears that there is some forum issue currently with several of the Club Business forums. First off I want to thank everyone who has volunteered so far for BAYMAC and some of our more recent events. Please take what I am about to say with a grain of salt as it is not particularly directed at you. I realize that people have lives and priorities outside of this club, we all do, but this club lives and breathes on the generosity of its members, without it, we are nothing. It has seemed lately that the club is moving more in a direction where people expect more and give less. Again, there are many people that go above and beyond, but this club is only the sum of its parts. I also understand that people want to enjoy the events that we put on and/or sponsor, as well they should, but if everyone does that and the burden falls on the same few people to do all of the work, it is only a matter of time before those people stop caring so much and ultimately give up. We currently have a board that has been indentured to this club for a very long period of time and has worked very hard to ensure that we continue to thrive and flourish. I will tell you that after this year several of us (myself included) will be stepping down. It is crucial that we have others that are willing and able to step up in our place for this club to continue. Case in point. We have the opportunity to be the lead in what is becoming a nationally recognized event in BAYMAC, yet of our 200 sum members we have barely 20 (non BOD) volunteers. I want you to ask yourself, how much have I received from this club given me vs. how much have I given back. Please do not consider this note a threat or even an ultimatum nor to try to ensue any sort of panic, but moreso a cry for real help if you want to see this club continue to flourish.
