I can't imagine anyone getting upset because you didnt mail their ribbon to them.
Now with that being said. I do not necessarily agree with charging for ribbons, however, the argument always seems to be the "long distance traveler" as the one who leaves early. If that is the case, then they know it up front, and should be more than happy to provide a self addressed stamped envelope to accommodate the club.
I think people forget that all of these clubs, and events are VOLUNTEER based. Why would we expect any volunteer to go above and beyond just because someone else wants to leave early for a long drive home. That secretary most likely has to go to work on Monday morning, just like you do, which is most likely the reason why someone with a long drive left in the first place.
Get titles, so if/when you breed the dog, you make more money.
Most clubs are non profit. Entry fees are strictly to cover expenses. That's it. You are not paying the club for anything else.
You are not a guest in a restaurant. You are a user of free labor.
It takes more than 5 minutes to mail several ribbons. With that said, I might do it, if someone asks me nicely. I'm sure not doing it for someone that expects me to be their servant.
Because they are too lazy to make prior arrangements.
if that is a bad attitude, so be it. Fire me. "Hire" someone else..No doubt, there are zillions of people, just itching to do the job.
My point of view is...those that enter the event should be kissing the behind of those that do all the volunteer work to put that event on. Not....the other way around. As you seem to think.
With that said, any Sec can do what suits them. There is no standard.
Hope that helps.

wow - my bad I guess - expecting the same courtesy and effort I give to others. Didn't realize what bad form that was.my feelings exactly. The older I get and the more times I put in the work the less I care about elitist attitudes like Kevin's brother. Stay the home please.
