There is some really sad people in the sport today. I was informed last night that one of our organization's competitors has been contacting several of our top NASA people and offering them positions in hie federation if they'll leave NASA. How sad and how low budget is this?
I have been in this sport for almost 4 decades and I have never resorted to such low budget, cheap under handed and behind the back tactics. Imagine, someone (a carpet bagger) following you around and once you have put the foundation work in to an area the carpet bagger attempts to move in. After we do the hard work and build the foundation in an area this scumbag and his cronies try to move in. And unfortunately there are some people, even in NASA, who will buy into his BS and promises. I have seen people like this come and go in the sport over the years and as long as they can make a few bucks they'll hang around your area but once the money runs out, they are gone and so are his cronies in that area.
This guy talks his new found suckers nto doing meets for him and if you lose your butt on a meet, you are on your own.
This is the same classless goon who booked a meet right on top of our esptablished "Tom Manno Classic." Truly classless.
There used to be some honor in this sport and meet directors respected other meet director's areas. I still do. But these cut throats in AZ and CA are the worst of the worst. They have no class and some of them are NASA rejects and it is plain to see why.
If you are on these goon's "Friends" list you probably have gotten or will get an invitation to be a part of their "organization."
