I would like to see clubs with a sense of belonging to a group of people that just like Ham radio, recognizing that it is many different ideas, modes, ages, and interests. Ours has fallen apart, almost, to the point of non-interest in anything. Too many stonewalls, feelings, and stubborn personalities have gotten in the way of people being able to merely voice their opinions or ideas. I have seen too many people get up and stomp out, saying that our club is going down the drain.
I have been "made" president, and don't care for the job. I just hang around, and a lot of us meet at a local store on Saturdays for breakfast and talk about lots of things. Where has the hobby gone?? I feel I can just do things on my own. Even our repeater has been listed on the internet as being "Rarely used"...............it still is there, and alive. Only used as check in night on Wed. Others have parted ways and started their "own" repeaters, snubbing our club. Nice, really nice.
