J-Town Minis
« on: January 13, 2012, 07:10:12 AM »
Although this is in the minute's from our last meeting. I want to make a special point.
We did well in the Ice Bowl last year & we were gifted with minis. They have our logo on them & they will be included in your J-Town membership.

And we are jealous. We wanted some minis too. Good job! Can't wait to get my Historical Mini.
It's great to be alive!

Well said, historic! I regret going along with giving these away. Reverse buyers remorse. Thor & I  discussed this, we were going to sell them for $2.00 & give the money to the Mission.  I should have bought them & sold them on my own. I discussed this with Thor Wednesday, & we agreed it could create unnecessary conflict.
I've driven over 4,000 miles the last two months, most getting sponsors. I wonder how many are going to say thanks for the minis? Let's start zero from the J-Town board. You bitch as you will, there is much support from your people.
This is an extended time for me of frustration, what's posted are results, not the effort.  How many of you have parents are living? Will they donate? Ask! for the historic mini you get for being a club member.
You are right Randy, it's historic!!! & free!!!

Historic is a great way to put it...hence the reason why we want to allow OUR CLUB to have the mini for the time, money, and effort that they put in to make the club what it is.  Our members deserve it, even if it's free.  Our club won the minis through the Ice Bowl Tournament (the players, raffles, donations, etc.) and they were given to US.  Regardless of what any specific person wants to personally do with the minis is irrelevant.  The board ultimately makes the decision on what to do with the minis and everything that comes with it.  I personally feel that all the members will say "thank you" for the minis.  We don't need to sell them, we can make up that money elsewhere.  Maybe we could use the "J-Town Tag #420" raffle to raise money for the Morning Star Mission?  The last time I ran the raffle for that tag, we raised around $100.  Give our members the gratitude and respect they deserve.  Every person who plays in the tournament is donating money to the charity.  Frank is verbally/publicly thanked at EVERY tournament and consistently on the message board, which is well deserved.  What else is expected?  It's not necessarily bad to think with the end in mind...that's why the results are always posted, instead of the effort.  However, the effort is always recognized by the board and all the members of the club.  Frank has done a phenomenal job getting donations and raising money for the Morning Star Mission, and we all have congratulated him and thanked him for his time and effort.  It takes a very unique and special person to get donations and raise money...it is very hard and uncomfortable for some people to even attempt to do what Frank has done.  Those falling in the "getting donations is not for me" category donate their time and effort running events (Ice Bowl) and improving courses (Lockport, Highland, Channahon, etc).  We work as a team...we're all individuals and have specific characteristics that make us successful in different things.  When we bring these efforts and characteristics together, look at what we accomplish.  We don't need to complain about the small things that make the big picture amazing.  We're all doing a fantastic job and we all thank each other for it, whether it's publicly, on this message board, privately, or just with a smile and a nod.  We're a club...let's start acting like one.
