I also hoped for more openness.
The trouble with 'more openness' is that everyone will have a different opinion on how we should deal with these things. We have difficulty enough already dealing with things as is. We also have only got two and a half week left to decide upon and write down a lot of the more pertinent points and details. Doing this in vacation time wasn't much use either, with people in the group going away for one or more weeks because their family wanted them to.

Ageless ... you are 100% correct and that is the way life is in an all volunteer environment. I am an active volunteer with The American Legion and have been involved with Boy Scouts / Cub Scouts as well as JROTC. All of these are volunteer organizations where less than 10% actually volunteer more than membership and fewer than that actually do any of the dirty work.

Thank you and all the "volunteers" for all organizations that actually show up and do the best they can, when they can, in an impartial way. Too many times in an all volunteer environment too many people want to be involved for the wrong reasons. Too often it is "look at me !!!"

Thanks again
