Pam you don't understand. Some of the present officers and I sure you know who they are, created this past situation. It all came down to being in power of a position that you don't get payed for. I just can't get over it why this position was so important to the present director.

Joe I am so glad, and there certainly isn't any backstabbing here either.  I  think you made a great Road Captain, I always enjoyed myself on your rides, etc.  I really don't think of the officer positions as some elitest symbol, there just people doing a job so that everyone else can have fun, kind of an unsung hero, thankless job!  I wish you well with NPR, may you make wonderful friends that you can spend hours laughing with.  That's what it's all about.

I am over it and will be back when Mark and his inner circle are no longer officers. I am very happy with NPR chaper. There isn't any back stabbing here.

Joe, I was talking about Jim, please reread my post, it is about your defense of him.  He is the one slinging mud.  And as far as your comment goes, I cannot agree with you that Most Cigar city members agree with you.  As far as the truth goes, it is somewhere in the middle,  having been in the law courts long enough, I know there's your side, there's the other side and then there is the truth.  I am sorry that you are getting needlessly upset by this.  I hope that you both can get over it, after all, it is in the past.

Yes Joe, I  agree that we all have our opinions of what goes on, but unfortunately the way we handle ourselves in the wake of things is how we present ourselves as a person.  To just sling mud, name calling, etc, shows no respect for ones self or anyone else.  One has to wonder what he'll do next?  At the end of the day, it is a social club and we are all there to enjoy ourselves.  I love riding with you as well as anyone else.  The only thing Jim is doing is showing he is vindictive and resentful!  I hope he can have some fun and enjoy his new chapter.  My best wishes to both.

I have to agree with Jim. We are all entitled to our opinions and I must agree with Jim as so many Cigar City members do. Randy Weilter came in as GM and totally disassemble the hog chapter. This came about by a few members who complained about the direction the chaper had been taking which was false but Randy never heard the other side of the story. These individuals were so power hungry they could not wait 4 months for year to end. Present officers would have been in place for 2012.

Jim, I must say, you probably aren't used to seeing me because I go on the rides that I can and sometimes they aren't the same as you are on.  But you must not know everybody that well to have missed me since I have been a member since 2007.  Cigar city has 3 rides a week if you count dinner rides, so I am sure our paths have not crossed on every single ride.  One thing I will point out to you is that slinging mud only makes you dirty, and your new chapter members will be reading this too.  We are all judged by our behavior, not others.  I wish you well, I wish you happiness and have fun with your new mates!

Jim, it's such a shame that you have to go acting that way.  I would have thought that as a Road Captain and member, you would have had a bit more class than that.  I have no ill will toward you, and hope that you continue to support Cigar City and ride the rides, but, if you can't, then you need to get over it,  I wish you ever success with your life and your riding.  CigarCity is an awesome chapter, with a lot of wonderful rides and some great people.  I have never met anyone there I didn't like, you included.
