    Red face WELL it is a start

    I think War Admiral that we can safely say that the campaign was not a waste of time or energy and it did get attention. I'm not sure that it should be up to the Hearing Committee to determine the particular punishment. It seems to me a conviction in a public court of law should be the determining factor.

    Membership in the Federation is not a matter of Civil Rights. I believe there are more serious civil rights lost by any convicted felon than Membership in a Competition Federation.

    Well, at least it proves they are listening. It's hard to say at this point whether this counterproposal is a token gesture or not... We'll have to wait and see what happens when it comes into play. But if NOTHING else, having life suspensions right there in the rule book may work as a deterrent for future felons (you KNOW there will be plenty!).

    And I agree with you 100%, but realistically it is going to take a LONG time for certain of the USEF mucky-mucks to acknowledge that being the officially government sanctioned NGB nowadays makes USEF no longer a private party where they can invite whomsoever they please, irrespective of the circumstances.

    All we can do is keep chipping away and hope we can get the message across eventually.

    Thanks to everyone for your support. If it hadn't been for all y'all, quite honestly I don't think we could have got this far!!

    OK, unless any of y'all have any objections, it's official - No Reinstatement is going to support the John Long proposal.

    Speak now if you have any comments, please!!!

    ...And yeah, RNB, I'm sure we'll think of ways to keep them entertained. Possibly sooner than they think.

    Arrow I agree RNB

    We'll take what we can get and come back next year with a rewrite. If we don't get it done we'll make them remember the scams that have been worked on this sport.
