GRHRCH Grant's BLK TIE Marshbutler "Jeeves"
For Gods sake,would somebody just post what happened? 5 pages plus a deleted thread of doom and gloom and most of us have no idea what the heck is going on. Let all of us potential HRC members know whats going on,heck let the actual memebers know whats going on.
HRC still exists & will exist next year! Implosion or destruction is not in the future. As a matter of fact many of the local clubs are thriving!. Tests are full & people are getting hooked on the dog games. I will be running Finished this weekend & expect great judges, great tests, great people & great dogs. All the doom & gloom will not rain on my parade.
The gossip & innuendo I am hearing does not need rehashing on a public forum. There are plenty of passionate, dedicated volunteers that will make sure the organization remains viable & continues to thrive.
My concern is the resignation of some of the people that I respect & admire in the past year. Some one always is willing to step up but there is no easy way to replace decades of experience at a position. My business experience leads me to believe that when someone is excellent at their job, as a boss it is better to eat crow to keep that person rather than train someone new.
Dog to the line!!!!!
The reason the thread was removed was the final 2 posts.
The last one indicated that RTF had "hit a new low".
The one prior to that was a poor decision made by a member. That individual chose to describe an alleged email that supposedly went to the wrong destination. The email was vulgar, was fairly specific, and listed descriptions of the individuals in a fairly transparent manner. It had no business on a public forum.
I thank Lainee for zapping it. It was the right thing to do.
