Please add any comments for the office here.
Answered: 15 Skipped: 301

1 I would have been in favor of amendment # 5 based on the comment, but not on the proposed text that is certainly missing strikeout. 12/10/2016 8:55 AM

2 Maybe we should state that an International Jury can be replaced with Jury with X number of years in the Star Fleet, so this Jury knows th class inside out. 12/7/2016 12:33 PM

3 Pretty easy voting process, not sure how many members vote, or even know they can? Thanks Rick 12/7/2016 11:04 AM

4 None 12/5/2016 11:18 PM

5 Thank you *** 11/30/2016 12:03 AM

6 Resolution 2 removes all weight restrictions for crew except for Gold Events. Is this the intent? 11/29/2016 6:12 AM

7 for proposal #2, I would amend, for the purposes of fairness, if one crew is protested re: weight after the initial weighin, all crewmembers of all boats should be re-weighed. 11/29/2016 5:10 AM

8 - 11/28/2016 12:42 PM

9 Best Regards 11/28/2016 11:55 AM

10 As written to Tom #3 has to be rewritten again because it is not correct 11/27/2016 12:58 AM

11 the way i read #2, the weight rule would only be in effect for gold events.... 11/18/2016 10:50 AM

12 2. I've voted against the 2. because deleting the text it looks like there will be no 31 rule on all the events except for gold ones: For Gold events the total crew weight is limited according to the following formula: 11/18/2016 7:15 AM

13 ..... 11/18/2016 1:13 AM

14 For the younger generations getting started in the Star Class ages 16-29.... The so called "One and Done" weight rule... is crazy because smaller crews will be at a disadvantage due to the BIG CREWS sweating off their weight just to make weigh in and then eating and drinking all the weight back the next day. THIS WILL BE ABUSED! DO NOT PASS!!!!! Some of the best boat handlers can do a 720 in seconds! THEN WHY do we teach future generations to do 720s, when they commit a foul???? Just because the older men are getting LAZY/Chicken Shit to do a 720! KEEP THIS RULE: It will encourage people to think twice about committing a foul! 11/17/2016 7:25 PM

15 Great job, Thank You all. 11/17/2016 5:28 PM
