    Dear Phil, thanks for the kind words. This is not an assignment given to me by the Board, but something I feel strongly about. When I became a Director I was struck by how poor communication was up, down, and across our Club, to the extent that some members strongly believed things I knew to be incorrect. The bulletin from the President after each Board meeting is intended to improve downward communication; the membership survey and this bulletin board to improve upward communication; and the annual President's Meeting to spread best practice across the Club. There's still much to do, but so far so good I guess. I try to pick my words carefully, but I'm not an official mouthpiece for the Board and I'll stray off into giving my own opinions sometimes.

    Dear All, here is a brief from Rocky Halter sent out yesterday:

    Your AMCA Board


    We had a 100 minute teleconference 07 November 2010, with another 100% turnout of our Directors. President Emeritus Pete Gagan and General Counsel John Wendel were out traveling, while we had our four new Directors for 2011 listening in to get up to speed. Here are the highlights:

    Honorary Membership
    Dennis Craig, AMCA Director for 24 years and now President of the Antique Motorcycle Foundation, was unanimously elected an Honorary Member.

    Judging
    Chief Judge Steve Dawdy presented the new rules for the AMCA Honor Competition Class, as approved by the Judging Committee, and these were approved for use in 2011. A draft Judging Guidelines Handbook, giving detailed advice to judges on appropriate deductions, was also discussed. The Board encouraged completion of this document, and gave permission for its dissemination after Board approval.

    Magazine Collection
    The AMCA bought about one ton of surplus magazines from the British VMCC in 2006, and these are now stored at the AACA Library in Hershey. The best way to realize the value of the collection was discussed.

    Web Site
    New rules for participating in the AMCA forum were approved.

    Antique Motorcycle Foundation
    The Foundation asked for permission to approach AMCA Chapters to become financial supporters, and this was granted.

    At the end of the meeting, the four retiring Board members were thanked for their service to the Club.


    Best regards, Rocky Halter, President Antique Motorcycle Club of America.

    This will drive many away and deter many from joining.

    It sure won't be an advantage. Rocky made it clear when he became the prez as to what his opinion of this site is. That opinion clearly hasn't changed any.
