Well Lets see!!
Southern region took it's first steps to secede from AWSA by voting disfavor of level 10 mandate.
They voted in a new Director
Discussion about how to increase participation at competitions.
Discussion of and presentation of all the state reports.
Discussion of All the committee reports.
I think the biggest debate was about disqualifications due to handle length after skiing.
Other then that pretty basic meeting. However one of the biggest attended meeting's in a long time.

Well boys the real drama was when the Kentucky Colonel told  the EVP, that he had no idea how to run a meetin or sanction an event, reminded me of the good ole days, then shoutin began, and it was time for me to get with Marshall Dillon and head off to the Longbranch Saloon. Seems the council was all about drinkin and having a good time, but the ole boy from Carolina should have stayed in Mayberry.

Who’s the “transplant” you’re referring to? Was that transplant also involved with the bullying in trying to get votes for National Director?

California, Florida who knows. Down here at the fire hall if you ain't from Alabama, Georgia, or Tennessee, you ain't from thu South, you boys ought to know that Carolina's Marshall Dillon kept every thing in check at the Paducah gatherin, although the women folk started hollerin at the Kentucky Colonel who later resigned from everything. Seems the folks that reside in those central florida cathedrals wanna take over the Ponderosa, but ole Davey Crockett is alive and well and still resides in Tennessee.

Only problem with the ballot was that they were not mailed in separate envelopes. Really by laws. Or just the old guard wishing to remain in tact. However you can hand deliver all those absentee ballots. Just can’t save postage and mail in one envelope.

Only problem is they were handed out at tournaments to people who don't care. Ballots need to disappear, if you want to vote show up at the meeting. Having people feel obligated to sign a piece of paper because they show up at a tournament is BS

People don’t care because they are unable to show up at the meeting. Not like waterskiing doesn’t already require a lot of time. Or just those that show up should have a voice. Sounds like you are from the old group that appears to continue to be the demise of the sport. It does appear that they cared enough to sign the ballot.

The ballots were each and every one individually enveloped and timely sent per by laws. Old guard didn’t want a female strong enough to change things and stand up to their constant manipulation of the by laws.

The ballots were all mailed in one box and not individually mailed in by the absentee voter as stated.  And it has been stated that several people felt quite pressured to cast their vote.

And no they were not all received by the stated deadline.

Your opinion people felt pressured. Based on nothing but your desire to keep the old board and board members in place. So the difference here is the price of postage. Sounds like a logical reason to disallow.

Not sure it’s just one persons opinion that people felt pressured.

Are you saying rules shouldn’t be followed? “Saving postage” is the rule that can be broken? Where’s the line? Which rules can be broken and which ones do we need to follow?

It looks a bit off when a box of ballots come in from one address like that instead of from the address of the person that is supposedly casting their vote.

Pushy people can’t get whatever they want just because, kindness goes a lot farther.

I’m saying the powers that be pick the rules they want to follow as was why this discussion began. That was the fireworks that started the discussion which came up at the meeting. When one board member pointed out that those in power do not uniformly follow the rules

Oh the fireworks began before the meeting ever started with the bullies doing their thing and threatening legal action when they weren’t getting their way

Ballots should be sent in by the individual, that's what I would do, say yeah sure then not send it in. Just so I didn't have to deal with them

Ballots are sent to individuals and returned individually to ensure they are truly a secret ballot. There is pressure to vote a certain way unless that happens.
