Re: Nobody Want To Be An Officer My bad, I'm in the wrong... I knew I would raise Merrily's ire, for that, my apologies. All accusations of direct or indirect screwing of Mr. Usher aside, your point is well taken, and the class will be served well by the injection of new 'blood'. Your post assumes that everyone that sails a laser have the same goals... I support the class with my $$ when I am able, I just didnt feel it was appropriate to randomly chastise 20,000 people because they might not think the way you think they should. Enough said about that, bad mood today... Part of the reason that I think people would not want to be an officer is due to the inexplicable bureaucracy associated with the class... I have two boats, my main purpose for which is to promote dinghy sailing, then promote Laser sailing.
