Shannon, I just wanted to say thanks for all you have done and tried to do. I also appreciate the encouragement you gave me to attend last year even though I wasn't sure how me or the car would do- had a great time. I'm sorry things came to this and I believe most, if not all members, know you wanted the best for the club. As I've stated in another thread, I cannot be a member in a club that is run like this...    Greg

Shannon, Bobbi, & Stephan,

Keep up the good work......
I think everyone knows that this is a difficult task but it has to be done.
It is the general consensus here in Michigan with everyone  that you are doing the right things
in a most professional and tactful manner.
You have been given responsibilities but not the tools to get your job done.
This is often the issue when someone has done a job for a long time and has the mind set that they are the only one who can do it.
The fact is we are all replaceable and there comes a time when we all need to step aside  
and transition into different roles.

NAMDRA has been the badge of honor for Jock for a long time BUT NAMDRA is not Jock alone.

He may think that it is and with that mind set has run shot gun over a number of people and
groups through the years which has not helped the overall AMC hobby.
Now is the time for more capable and non opinionated individuals to take the reins and lead the AMC racers and drivers group to bigger and better things.

Best of luck and feel free to get a hold of myself or any of the other AMC'er here in Michigan if there is anything that we can help with.

Sincerely....... Jeff Bristow

this is just telling me how vindictive Jock is.  Sure Jock never told Shannon to do anything.   Jock just wanted a puppet that doesnt think or act.   and Shannon is right to send the money back to the people that sent it to Shannon. its NOT NAMDRAS money. its their money to choose if they want to send it to Jock.  if not,,well....  I suspect alot of people will understand why.

So In your own words you are telling us ( me, and every one else who were/are NAMDRA members)  that WE are putting on the show with OUR money, that without US, the Nat's will not go on. So I ask then, If NAMDRA wants to use OUR money, we want transparancy, we want the club OFFICERS and you to apologize to Shannon Halverson and his family for the mistreatment of them, at your expense, not from the club membership account.  Shannon and His family had OUR best interest, he was OUR voice, and you and the club officers cast him aside! How rude and disrespectful to someone who LIVES and BREATHES AMC, who is a honest person who does things for others not for money or any gain, but because he's a stand up guy. He was leading the club in the direction that we want the club to go in and the future success of the club. If you and the club Officers cannot understand the membership fustrations and the direction that we want the club to go foward with the club, then we as the members ask for you and the club officers to step aside so the club will be lead by people who have the same goals and ambitions of the club members. If this is not something that is acceptiable then you give the members no choice but to do what you told me on facebook [QUOTE then get out of it . We can survive without you. QUOTE]    We will take OUR memebrship dues, regestration fees and any donations to a orginazition that will support our values.  Now can a club survive without memebers, can a show /meet take place with no money?  Will people actualy show up?  Only time will tell. Thing is , NAMDRA WAS a great club, I first went in 2002 and have made great memories and have made many friends along the way.

Haversons

Thank you for your attempt at saving a sinking ship. It seems the kangaroo court has spoken.
I would like to know who these "board members" are. As long as I have been a member there has never been an election by the members.

Anybody need a room for that weekend?

WOW !!!! To think I was actually thinking of joining this club ? This happens alot with clubs when the officers stop listening to the members ! They forget that it is the members dues donations and hard work that make a club and the officers ONLY JOB is to help manage the operations of the club. They need to listen to its members ideas and concerns to keep a club moving forward instead of dictating to the members what and how they are going to do things ! Being an outsider and reading what is going on Jock is absolutely wrong on how he is handling the issues. Maybe instead of Jock threatening the members and officers with suite, maybe the members need to take their club back and threaten Jock with suite for possible mismanagement of their club and their money ! JUST SAYING !
