Since the number one rule for years has been not to put these kind of issues out in public I won't go there in this thread. I know that you have seen my last post in the members only section. If that is "not obtainable", then I expect that nothing will change and it will stay the same until at least Winter Convention. Hopefully, maybe a discussion might improve things by F/D.

Maybe you two should talk via phone for starters...it might help Dan get an idea of what you are looking for.

In a nutshell he and many of us simply want to see the bod members on here and the Facebook page posting information and answering questions. It's always been a ghost town and nowadays it's even worse. We get few if any reports on here and Facebook and it's so easy to do. We have these things to attract membership and keep our members informed in a timely. **** our summer convention isn't even posted on the pnw4wda Facebook page. We HAVE to wake up and realize that this IS how things are done today.

Thanks Jim. I've just been sitting over here in the desert doing what I do, which I hope helps the cause.

It has always been stated that the Tri-Power was part of our "education" requirement. Since our editor/publisher has passed away, and was not able to get the paper out for awhile before that due to health, we have no information coming down the pike at all, at least for the people that won't have anything to do with facebook.

I saw in the June BOD minutes that the BOD is looking into doing a twice yearly "slick" magazine to replace Tri-Power. That just makes thing worse, zero timely information at all. Over the past few years the reports printed, at least for my state, 75 to 80% have been more travelog than timely information where we have a chance to influence the outcome. Nothing wrong with a travelog, it should be another item for the paper, not an officer's report of what is happening.

The activity level by the BOD was brought up months ago, well before F/D, and is now two months past that, and not one thing has changed around here, and looks like it never will with the current BOD.

I would suggest to the membership it is time to clean house completely. However, I won't be going to W/C, it appears to be a total waste of time and resources from my and my club's end. I will be paying all the club dues for this year, but it may end up being the last if the PNW4WDA can't get it's act together, and that is from a 40 year member, and 30 year Associate member..........

Here we are, almost a month later and still nothing here. Even the crickets have died for lack of information coming from the "powers to be". At least 4 months without a newsletter, and nothing from above posted here on the Association website.

I, and the rest of the club are wondering when partial refunds on dues, and/or reduction of 2017 dues is coming, since part of the dues schedule is for a non-exustant TriPower.

Something the BOD had better get fixed and before soon.

This used to be one of, if not the formost, 4x4 group in the country, now it appears it is getting to be the laughing stock of everyone.
