Yeah, pretty much expected this and fair shout, but..........
I guess the "engage brain before tapping keyboard" approach should have been taken before describing sections of the site as a "joke". The site is or should I say before its demise, WAS good, but the accurancy, and therefore relevance was less so. According to the events calendar, there is a Sepang track day on the 16th November, where do I sign up?
Track days do happen but it seems more by hook and crook than by planning. The last one I went to was organised by Nils after he called up the track spur of the moment. Karl is setting one up this weekend spur of the moment. If these can work, then why can't we actually "plan" these and put them on that"event calendar".
May be if people funneled their energy into the club instead of pissin and moanin then things would get done. Instead of where's my events oh and passes oh and social meets oh and can you wipe my arse. I've got loadsa time to spend if it involves me or my bike or my ego but do somethin for somebody else Nah I can't do that ...the SBR should do it all for me
When does constructive critisism become pissin and moanin? Yeah fair enough my mail probably does look more in the moaning bracket. Can I turn it to constructive? I've done my share of committee work over the years. I was secretary of a climbing club for 4 years, diving officer of a diving club for a couple of years, I now help run a climbing club here. I've only been in the club a few months and don't exactly feel I should be jumping up shouting ME, ME, ME, for the committee. However, those on the committee did volunteer, and all I am doing now is making suggestions to these erstwhile members.
Ok so I've probably made a lot of enemies here, and maybe on the next track day I'll find someone pushing me a strange line straight into the gravel (easy to do with my riding style!) but WTF, I needed to say it.
