I spoke with them recently and they are appologetic for loosing us, but we are only one night per month.
We are still welcome there, but it is not practical for us.
Keep the debate alive. As a committee, we will look at all suggestions and as a committee we will make a decision.
Thanks for the insight and passion

& if you say it may confuse some we have our texts, emails, on here, the sdc site, sdc facebook and the meetings to keep members informed of which venue is next, we made the switch to prospect venue without drama.

there are no pokies around where we sit at cabra anymore and its not hard to turn the tvs off .. This discussion has been brought up at the meetings but was brushed asside and whats the point of bringing it up at the meeting when only 15 members turn up ... I suggest we the members get the opportunity to vote through a mail out therefore all members could have there say instead of the 15 that turn up ... I challenge the committee to reveal the attendance between the 2 venues as this will show what everyone already knows ... Membership attendance is down at prospect

Subject: Re: [Sdc-committee] Cabramatta
This whole topic is a lose lose situation…
We are always going to find a split of ppl who want it here or there or what ever.
It does not matter if the club has to change some details if the meets are not at the golf club. Life goes on.
I think maybe we need to look at attendance records of meetings over the last 2 years - factor that in and then have a public vote for general members.
Committee only for vote count and then a committee decision made.
Its going to get messy, ( some ppl are going to have a cry)
The final decision should be made for the members not based upon the committee member that has been in the club the longest or who has a higher rank in the club.
I think there are more important things in this/our club to fix like just being able to prioritize a sub-committee meeting once every month or 2.
So if we arrange a meeting and a vote how many ppl are going to turn up?
Is it going to be the case of all the ppl that want cabra back and dont attend meetings regulary turn up on vote night only?
Or is it going to be the other way around?
If the monthly meeting night is a cold winter night, are we going to get as many members as if its a warm summer night?
Winter numbers are allways down- im keen for a vote- im happy at either club ( or another ).
This is about giong the right way about it.
So what next you say.... Well- do we give a months notice or how about 2 months to say we are going to have a vote?
What is fair??
Who will winge first??????
Who will get what they want and do something or nothing with it??
So many tough questions.... ( all for the love of Datsuns )
I will drive to either club because Datsuns will allways be a part of my life-
What will you do??
DATSUN - FARK YEAH
510 - FARK YEAH

- Alternate between the 2
We have an oportunity to inform members before the July meeting, then discuss/vote at the July meeting and continue counting votes untill the week before the August meeting, then have a result for the August meeting so we can start talking Datsuns again.
Just my thoughts.....

either way i'm happy with any venue we can meet at,
Posted 30 July 2012 - 05:44 PM
If the people either turn up just to vote because they want cabb back that should b fine as IF they r still members they hav a right to a vote like anyone who atends still now! that gose both ways.
I think the both venues is a good idea as i brought up b4 like other clubs do as well , it makes it a little fairer on all members given those who like both places for whatever reasons (ie distance , prices etc) a chance to enjoy the meetings and attend at least a few.
We do need a committtee meeting guys its been slack not having one this yr yet!!

A decision won't be made without extensive member consultation.
As you all can appreciate, this will take time. Whether it happens in the next month or three, it really makes little difference.
Obviously, by the amount of debate, the ultimate decision may not please everyone.
If anyone has an awesome solution, we are still open to other offers. Please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, the SDC committee are volunteers. Some with busy work and private lives also.
Finding time for committee meetings to suit everyone's schedules is also a challenge.
None the less, there are many events between now and the end of the year. Lets just get the Datsuns out and enjoy them in the company of like-minded people.
