Rob gave an update of the SHARES Program.Secretay George KC6KGH Noticed in the Club Minutes that were taken in his absence that the Joint Field day voted on was an Incomplete Motion according to Roberts Rules of Order, as no names were mentioned of the Motionee's and that it needed a re-vote in order to continue with the operation of a Joint Field Day between BARA and the KCCVARC.George mentioned that at this late date,there was a noticeable lack of accountability as to who would pay for what,and who was in charge. None of that was mentioned in any minutes or was there a record of discussion.After a lengthy and heated discussion among members,Richard KG6ACH made the motion to rescind the Joint Field Day because of the Lack of Accountability and the foreseeable potential for problems allowing the KCCVARC to make other Plans.Tex KD6UQW 2nd the motion......and Rob KB6JFL asked for a vote immediately.A raised Hand vote was taken and five voted in favor of a Joint Filed Day,and Nine members voted against it.So,therefore,the Vote stood and the Motion carried.No Joint Field Day.There were continued comments and discussion.
