Just a concern I would like to address to a particular board member here.
It has come to my attention that there is someone here who recently decided to not attend the tour has been bad-mouthing the tour to other enthusiasts and convincing them that the tour will not be as good as it seems and that it'd be a waste of money and time. I'd like to advise this person, although I do not try to force anyone to attend and it is a decision that they should make themselves, if you are NOT going to attend the tour however, DO NOT go around like a clown and saying they should not attend the tour. Afterall you can NOT expect me to be able to do what you want, I am not the one who makes up the operational rules and afterall, I have many people to satisfy for the tour and I only have limited resources to do so. I try to satisfy as many people as I want but unfortunately, we can not get what we want all the time. So please if your not going to attend (which doesn't bother me), you do not have to go around and tell people how bad the tour is going to be especially when you are just spread rumours.
If anymore of this continues, I shall cancel the tour as I will not tolerate it. Furthermore if anyone here wishes to abuse me for something out of my control, I will make a tough decision resulting in the tour being cancelled. As I have put all my time and effort into this tour, if no one is going to appreciate it, there is no point having it go ahead. This particular person should be ashamed of yourself.
In saying this, I do hope that the majority of you that are attending will appreciate my efforts that I have put in, especially considering it is hard to get a charter/hire from Swan Transit and I hope that this post has not changed the minds of some of you in regards to your attendance or not.
I will keep you guys informed with the latest on the tour. Under a month to go now!
