Thats why I said they were incompetent.
Before I start ranting..I know we kind of agree.
To me this is a little more than incompetent. I do have some experience with sports organizations on a high level, and many do not know the rules they abide by, BUT and this is a big one..it opens them up for law suits, and for questions about competencies, and for dismissals. The rules in organizations where people pay membership fees are not something they can just pick and choose what to follow. Unfortunately most sports organizations are very autocratic in nature, and the best governmental structure comparison I can come up with is fascism.
This is not even to mention the face that by invalidating their own rules, now everyone knows it is an un-serious organization that does whatever it likes.
The other point I was making was that there never actually was a majority of them in favour of kiting - ever. Kiting got in by accident, so it wasn't actually a big change-around when they went to 68% for windsurfing in November.
Nope. Kiting got voted in...then there was a majority. You cannot discuss the result of a football match in terms of weeeeeell I think the team that lost should get all the points because they are really better...they just had a dude that was confused and scored a home goal...unless..and this is a big one..unless the winning team got the victory by cheating..by the judge giving them a second chance at a penalty because after all, they usually do score in 75% of the shots they take.
I was surprised that after failing to get the 75% to change things at the Council level they then changed things at the AGM. Whats the point of having the 75% then? Why not just keep it at 50% if you are going to then decide that actually there was a majority in favour of windsurfing so we should change it back.
So I agree that it shows their procedures are either wrong or they dont stick to them.
I actually want to learn windsurfing. To me it looks like fun, but I still think this whole process stinks of something that does not like the light of day.
