It's been more than a month since the last post on this tread, but for a closure, and for the record, it should be noted that in the vote concluded on November 31, 2003 and overseen by "the prominent Laser Class statesman Dick Tillman" (and John Christensen), the District Secretaries have rejected the adoption of the porposed NA By-Laws by a vote of 13 to 10.

We are all better off.
