Here's what I think about all of this ....That's what we needed here. thanks for that.
A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath. "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?" Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet." He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"
Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other. She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine."
The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very closely:
Are - my - test - results - back?"
I know that I may have been the antagonist that started this heated discussion. For that I aplogize. I just was wanting clarification and to voice my concern. But as I also stated, I plan to play PDGA league on Monday nights as much as possible. And I love Rob. In all my interactions with him I can't think of anything bad to say. If he is making money running tournaments than props to him, because his tournaments are about half the price of a DD tournament and I still get a disc at both. (I also love DD and will continue to play their tournaments as well). My only concern in this matter was that it would dissolve the current Monday night leagues because they are smaller. I guess if this happens so be it. I'm sure Tom could probably use the break in Olathe since he has been incredibly dedicated for who knows how long, running leagues Monday nights year round. I absolutely know I am spoiled to have this decision and that is why this is not AT ALL a complaint. Just wanted some clarification. I don't feel like the board has done anything wrong and am not calling into question anyone's motives or the process. As I said before, if Monday is the night that Rob can do it, that's as good of a reason as I need. Eric K, you are a great club president and I appreciate the way you govern but also how you communicate with authenticity and honesty. I know the people on the board are serving out of the goodness of their heart and I don't want to add any stress to their lives. thanks to you all for serving. Thanks to everyone who runs leagues and volunteers. I wish you all many aces in the near future. Let's all just try to acknowledge that we see things differently and that doesn't mean one person is right or wrong. Communication is vital but it needs to be done with grace and poise, not finger pointing and name calling. We are blessed. Let's try to remember that more often.
