Frankly, the voting record issue doesn't ring my bell, but the solution is so pathetically simple - it starts to smell fishy when lame excuses are given not to do it.
Would you trust an auto mechanic to fix your car without ever seeing it? A doctor to diagnose you without ever meeting you? An instructor to give you something to improve without ever seeing you fly?
I mean this in the nicest way possible, but yea, it SOUNDS easy... on an internet forum. Come to some meetings and see how quickly we move and vote from topic to topic (often we don't know what we'll be voting on until a motion is made and a vote is raised).
An electronic system would work, but it costs $. And it's money to fix a "problem" more than a PROBLEM. I pray for the day when the sport is so sound that our pressing business is discussing how to be more transparent. I absolutely agree it is important... but more important than safety issues? More important than competition issues? More important than INSURANCE issues?
We're volunteer people in a volunteer organization, where the individuals AND the organization have very limited resources, and we do the best we can putting out fires as they pop up, and prioritizing the big ticket items.
If this is a big ticket item for anyone here, please relay that to your RD... again, this poll proves nothing- we agree it should be more transparent.... it's the HOW that hasn't been developed.
Please, if you get the opportunity to attend a meeting, this will all make more sense...
Shut up and fly.
