The message three days ago was the first I had known of the design for this years T-shirt. I too was confused about the design since it should really have Chris and Bernie's car on there. id feel a bit gutted if I was in their shoes. Can't it at the very least be added to the car collage?
In the past i would have bit my tongue halfway and just went with it, but ive changed over the last 18 months or so and ill just speak my mind on the subject.
Feel free to move this post around but id like it to stay so everyone can read it. Here goes.....
Ive known about the change of tshirt for a while, as i ran into Lewis at The Warehouse looking for and getting datsun matchbox cars before i got in lol
I'd heard about the T-shirt and asked what the design was, i was a bit confused that it wasnt last years winner but carried on as i do. So when i met up with one of the committee members about a month or so later i voiced my opinion - to which he said that it still wasnt finalised. Again i was confused and vented a little frustration and left it at that.
To get to Ging's point, tonight i checked on the minutes from the meetings
Jesse brought a bunch of t-shirt designs to discuss. Two designs so far for 10th Anniversary shirt, committee votes at tie.
The club will look into pricing from Print Mighty and the Print Smiths.
Dan has scanned the decided t-shirt designs to give to Lewis to draw up digitally so we can send them off to get made.
Daniel is going to look into the printing company Gooses to get some prices for Akaroa shirts. Daniel is also going to e-mail The Printsmiths
I pulled these from the Committee room - which i can take from those that the "designs" would have included last years winner?
And to add to that the August and September meetings were both only posted last night - its a bit hard for members to comment when the minutes are not there to look at.
Now i know how hard it can be to be in the committee, be the President of the club ive been there done that for a few years, and im not trying to get on peoples nerves or cause a shit fight.
Heres a few things for discussion as you still cant post in the Committee Room.
-Make the Committee room able to be written in and make it pop up in the View Active Topics - because lets face it thats where the majority of us click when the page loads - this way everyone can have a say - there might be good bits and shit bits but it will keep people on top of whats going on.
-Communication is Key - in those minutes someone had designs yet no pictures, we live in the modern age people - take some pics, try to get everyone involved. Ive seen posts about are forums dead etc, the Club definitely isnt so show it.
-Maybe the committee needs to be smaller or I dunno something has to change, as im a regular viewer on the OLDSCHOOL forum and i dont know whos boss or how that works but man does it work and work well.
Theres my points, like or not, talk about it, have a go at me for shutting down and ditching the president position halfway through a year - because i couldnt handle it, i dont care, i want the club to grow and succeed like it used too.
I know everyone is busy, and doesnt have time etc but what ive learnt is if everyone does a little bit and communicates then shit gets done, done fast, and done well.
I remember something about the club being about the preservation of the brand as a group - keep it that way.
Sorry if i make no "cents" at all - rant over
