I'm not going to argue Jack. You win. You always win.
It really is obvious that you have a deep seated hatred for me. It is unfortunate you feel that way.
I'm not arguing with Jack fellow club members. However, as his post above borders on slander, for the record, I do feel a need to post my side of things. Then I'm done.
I put my time in as a volunteer. Of course I can never match what others have done. The postings on the forum won't let us forget it.
I volunteered as a spotter for 2013 KCWO instead of playing. How many KCFDC members have spotted even one tournament?
I volunteered as an Assistant Director for the 2014 KCWO B-Tier. Wasn't even invited to the worker's party until it was too late to attend. I was told that it would be made up to me at the club elections. It didn't happen, but it didn't even mention it until now, because I didn't volunteer to get something, even bragging rights. I did it because it was the right thing to do.
I secured the CO2 donation for 2014 KCWO.
I solely secured the beer donations of the last two Ice Bowls which alone brought in $1000.
2014 Ice Bowl, I took a whole Saturday to brew beer, along with two other club members to brew my own beer and then give it away for donations. I served the beer the whole day, which meant I couldn't play in the final round, so that as a club we would be responsible in how we distribute alcoholic beverages instead of letting the taps flow freely to every irresponsible person, of age or not of age. I borrowed the serving equipment from a homebrew club I belong to, and then cleaned the equipment by myself. I also secured an additional two kegs of beer besides the beer I/we made.
For the 2015 Ice Bowl I secured not only three kegs of beer, but also the people to serve the beer so the club wouldn't have to do it. I submitted a plan on how to secure additional donations to those that were running the Ice Bowl. Heaven forbid we don't something differently than what we have done since the beginning of time. For over a full month I did not get a concrete answer to my suggestion, so two of us made a decision without Mr. Lowe. Only after it was publicly stated what the policy would be, it backfired in my face and I ate the crow myself and rescinded it. Gosh, I really enjoyed that. If only I would have gotten an answer to my proposal to the multiple requests I made for an answer, or received a reply sooner than 30 days after I first brought it up.
I have volunteered a work day at Cliff Drive because we 'had to' put in new holes. Only to find out this wasn't actually true. I really enjoyed the misinformation I received on that one.
Before I was even a member of the KCFDC, I organized a work day at Centennial Park in Lawrence and cleaned up over a dozen bags of trash along with securing the food donations and drinks from local business to feed the workers. This wasn't done so that I could take advantage of the course. I did it because it needed to be done.
I volunteered an entire Saturday working at Perry Lake - Longview - a course that a lot of KCFDC people enjoy. How many of the KCFDC played Longview and worked on that course?
Topeka DG are having a workday Saturday 2/7 from 9-3 if interested. I'll be there.
I was there. I am 100% positive that I didn't see a single other person from KC there. Although I did see some players from KC. Not busting on them at all, just saying all of us enjoy the fruit of other people's labors
. Not all of us make a public declaration of it and accuse people of leeching off the system.
Besides volunteering for the KCFDC, I have spent well over 200 hours feeding homeless people in the city I live in - Lawrence. Yep, I don't live in Kansas City metro area. I was unaware that was a requirement to be a part of the KCFDC club. I do work here though, does that count for anything?
The issue ladies and gentleman, is that I'm willing to stand up to some of the old guard here in our club. Jack in particular has it out for me because I called him out publicly on an issue where he threatened to pull the baskets at Cliff only to manipulate people into work days when he never intended to actually pull them. I have a very deep issue with people that manipulate others. Now Jack is very upset with me and it has gotten personal to him.
I'm sorry that everyone else had to be pulled into this.
