I did (get involved) and I did (step back). I was a lot more vocal when I was active, in an effort to make things better, at least in my opinion and perception. In my world, a magazine (the Concourier) published and delivered quarterly should show up somewhere around, oh, four times a year. Three more and we are all set for 2014. And yet no refund on dues or extensions on them.

On the other side of the coin, I am a member in good standing with COG and am not at all happy with quite a few facets of that organization. If you think I should sit back and just accept poor and unacceptable behavior, policies and management, I am afraid you will be disappointed. From where I sit, it is never acceptable to adjust votes as needed. Not sure where you live or what your personal beliefs are but I am a big fan of a level playing field where the rules are set before the game is started.

If you think I am alone in my thinking, check COG's membership level and then compare it to past levels.

As far as being reasonable goes, I am not telling you how to behave....

Geeezzzz, Brian. Take a pill! Either get involved with the process, or step back. These guys are not the enemy. The Reds are a comin'!

Glad to hear it Ted; I think I only know 4 Texans in person and all are friends. Glad to hear that that remains the case.

If you ever find yourself in the northern wilds of the US, by all means look me up and we'll have lunch or something. Maybe even touch up that mustache......  :rotflmao:

Thanks Brian. You and I are fine..

Ride safe, Ted (Hope to see you at an event again)

Time has passed and we are very close to the end of the voting period.
The last day to vote is April 1st. (April Fool's day)

If you haven't voted, send in your vote NOW!!!
The 5 Candidates are;    Drumroll please!!

    Mark Hartman
    Charlie Gary
    Chris Baum
    Mike Aldea
    Al Norcross



I decided to add this.
In this case, my purpose is to spread the word about a Farkle you might be interested in.
Read below:

Charlie Gary makes Name Plates (that fit in the window of the C-10 Connies).
These name Plates can also be attached to the C-14.

Charlie has offered to make (and sell) the nameplates (and all the $$ will go to this years "Over the Pond")...

Again,, My thought is; Not many know these are made...
                              and
                      Some of you might want one of these Name Plates made for your Connie???

If so, go here.........

OtP Winner and Runner-Up announced this morning.

Ride safe, Ted

After a long month or so of voting, the results are finally in!  Our traveler candidates for this year were:

Mike Aldea
Chris Baum
Charlie Gary
Mark Hartman
Al Norcross

Personally, after reading the bio's on all of these gentlemen, my first thought was that I wanted to send ALL of them because of their terrific contributions to our club.  My hat is off to each of them, with a great big THANKS for everything you have done and still do for COG.

So....without further delay, the winner for 2015 for our OTP Traveller is


AL NORCROSS


As well, our first runner up was Charlie Gary

If all the variables work out and we were able to send more than one candidate, or if for any reason Al is not able to take advantage of this nomination, Charlie will be the man!

Thank you to ALL the candidates for your participation this year, and thank you to all the members who participated in the voting process.  We had over 250 votes come in this year.  over 98% of them were registered members.  The "oldest" member to cast a vote was Ron Ramlow and his wife Carol with COG number 3, followed closely by Rich Reed at COG number 7.  it's great to see so many of our original members still part of our group!  The newest member was Steven Sill, COG number 11845.

A reminder to all, please continue to keep OTP in your donation thoughts.
