Just got on the board after a couple of weeks away (it's hunting season now, not racing, you know /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif ). Anyway, I just wanted to voice how much I appreciate the BOD and all the volunteers and (under)paid workers of the CMRA. Y'all do a TERRIFIC job and have a very smooth running organization.

One thought, I participate in some other volunteer organizations that can have difficulties with meetings getting out of hand if you're not careful. It only takes one or two people to get a near mob scene going. Suggestion is it might be good to always have a moderator or some neutral person there to retain control of the meeting in cases like this. Of course, that would require ANOTHER volunteer, so maybe it's not realistic, just a thought.

Mostly, just wanted to say thanks to everyone, especially the long-termers like Brooks and Norm. Steve has also done a bang-up job and shows a real passion for the sport. Not mentioning these names to leave anyone else out, just listing by name a few of the outstanding folks we have around here. I am thrilled to even be in the same organization!

Agreed with what David said. Thanks!

I hope Emmett is still this funny when his leg gets well. I guess otherwise, someone will have to go buy and pull one of those video game passes on him, complete with the chain whip to the shin or sumthin.

Somebody get a video of this footrace for next year's banquet!!!
