I got an e-mail from Southern today.

Whoever has account access, please text me your e-mail address and I can forward that e-mail to you.

I got another invoice e-mailed to me today from SFWDA. I forwarded it to Andy for the BOD to take care of as they see fit.

Because after a long discussion with Ray Stanley (President), Jay Bird (VP) and Jay's son-in-law (Very involved member), I was told that my opinion doesn't matter because I don't donate. (They didn't know that I had donated.) Then couldn't tell me what they had done with all the money that NAXJA SEC has donated to them. I knew more of where it was supposedly going than they did. They couldn't show me that it went where I was told it was going.

Basically, I don't like their attitude and I think our money will go farther donated to other places.

Though, the decision isn't solely up to me so we'll just have to discuss it.

If you're certain on those statements I agree that we shouldn't renew.

But I also don't know who else we'd donate to so that's only an opinion.

This does not surprise me at all. SFWD is the reason Tellico is closed IMHO. They took dues organized few work days and then didn't fight for shit. JMHO of course. From what I see the new SFWD leadership does nothing but collect dues. We have one National Forrest left in NC that has OHV trails and I have seen nothing from them there. I have seen nothing of them in the South period. Just my observations.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't donate a plug nickel to people like that. I was just wondering what the issue was. We should bring forth some new ideas to donate towards.

I also wasn't aware of how SFWDA was treating supporters until Andy said something to me about it a couple of weeks ago, and that's probably part of the problem. I bet if a lot of clubs were to dig deeper, they would have the same opinions we now do.


My suggestion would be to focus the donations on parks we know and use throughout the chapter. In the past we had decided to limit that to public ones (i.e. Uwharrie), but I realize those are few and far between these days.

This all stemmed from discussing Dixie Run. I asked why the registration fee was $140 per person.
