Lonnie, thanks for your input from someone who has at least addressed the board. I also have been involved with organizations, all of which publish treasurer's reports with regularity and with open meetings. However, the real clue of if the board "gets it" is when things loosen up and the membership is freely included and has direct representation with full financial disclosure. Pete, thanks for the blurb on the Foundation, but until a full financial disclosure is posted by both the club and the Foundation there will be all kinds of suspicion by club members, mainly because the whole thing took place in a hurry with no warning or club member involvement. You say we are losing money[or previously lost money when you were elected]. Show us the figures. We have the right to see the full financial disclosure of both boards.
There still are many members who objected to the Torque Four purchase because again no figures have surfaced, plus the concern of whether the club [or Foundation] has any business owning motorcycles. Many of us are aware of the uniqueness and historical nature of the Torque Four and believe it should be preserved. There has been no real information published on the details of how the bike was acquired from the Patt family after Doc passed. The members are just asking for openess and transparency from our boards. At this moment, it doesn't exist. As one having been on both boards, please give us your insight on why we operate the way we do.
