Fitz, with years of poor succession planning it has got to the stage where there is in effect no active board, and ASRA is now irrelevant! People need to "get fairdinkum" and nominate, otherwise ASRA will die. If the luge people want to have a crack, let em, because many of them are ex ASRA, and they are still making things happen. The way to make sure you get the board you want is to encourage people, that you think would do a good job, to step up.....or nominate yourself! As to the two weeks notice.....one of the complaints I heard is that no one knew when or how to nominate, because it was not made clear in the meeting notice. As to the luge bad-blood, it is time to forgive and forget, and let the new generation rebuild ASRA to what it was when we first ran at Bathurst. Best wishes for 2015, and hope to see you at Canberra!
I have a friend with a machine shop.....Thing is ill probably have to pay him with a case or something like that. I'm also using cut-off or "waste" materials so the price is much lower. And all the hardware will be sourced locally (south coast fasteners). All of this results in a considerably lower price.
