Well, after ordering spam, spam, spam and eggs, I looked at the folder and nothing there.   Whoever sent it out, PM me and I will make sure the email is correct.

Hi All,
I got Email with Frisco squared away, and Tascosa, received yours as well.   Many thanks.   Yes, we need to hear from you all.   When it comes to voting, I don't want to be this guy.

Thanks Joe, got the email.  And now it makes more sense.  In RCJ's post above there are no strike-outs, just a repeat of the existing shooting categories.  But the strikeouts are in the email attachment.  I do support that change.

The strike-outs were in the original post, but for some mystical reason did not translate to my CAS City posting. Life is . . .

Sooooo.......does Mr. Irons proposes to eliminate all NCOWS members 60 years and older from shooting sanctioned NCOWS matches???

Possibly he should clarify that the 'now' Senior and Elder categories are to be rolled back into the Adult category. Just a thought.

I'm only in my second year of membership and I did not receive any e-mails.  My first thought after reading what was in post #2 above was, that's an awful lot of (expletive deleted) rules.

I thought one of the goals of NCOWS was to have fun, and of course do it more historically than IPSC in boots.  Winning a plastic cup or ribbon shouldn't be a top priority in my view.  If I was king for a day I'd just have adults and kids.  Run what ya brung and if you beat everyone else you get the big booby prize.

Having been both on the board of directors and the president of a shooting club in the past, I realize there would be howls of outrage and protests at my simplistic approach.  Guess the point I'm trying to make, in my long winded fashion, is to keep things as simple and uncomplicated as possible.  The post above was just over the top from my perspective.

YMMV,
Dave

Dave T,
to bring some clarity, the Agenda traditionally is sent to the Congress only for their use in canvassing their constituency.
The format has always been set as state the proposal, showing the new wording and then showing the existing rule as written with the old wording to be modified stricken through. This allows Congress to see visually how the rules will change. My re-posting the agenda as sent for some reason did not print the strike-through.
Actually, NCOWS over the past two decades has tended to streamline its rules and shooting categories, as this proposal wil continue to do if passed. Seeing that the majority of NCOWS Adult members are older, there is no real difference in age advantage except between adults and juniors.

River City,

Well, this is another case of me shooting off my mouth before I have all the facts before me.  My reading of this thread led me to believe the whole membership was to be notified.  Stepped in that one didn't I.

As for "streamlined rules", guess you guys have a different interpretation of those words than I do.  My apologies again for stepping in were I really didn't belong.  I didn't understand my second class citizen status.

There are no NCOWS clubs in Arizona (always thought that's odd) so I've no members to talk to about these things.  I signed up to support the organization so I'll keep quiet and send a check every year.  Good luck to all of you.

Dave

Dave T,
why not spearhead forming a new NCOWS Possee in your area. Start with three members, etc. and submit your petition to Congress.

River City,

Well, this is another case of me shooting off my mouth before I have all the facts before me.  My reading of this thread led me to believe the whole membership was to be notified.  Stepped in that one didn't I...

Well if you stepped in it, it was because it was right in front of you and hard to miss, and so did I.  Posting the proposed changes "to the world" instead of just in emails to decision-makers would indicate that the info was for all members (which it is, so that we can relay our desires regarding it to our senator).  Since there was no additional verbiage to indicate that "this info was emailed to Senators," how were we to know?  But we know now.  :)
