steve fracy Posted August 23, 2016 Report Share Posted August 23, 2016 (edited) Comparing what you are doing in NS and the trials scene there is not at all a good comparison to what is going on in the rest of the country, or North America. You are just starting out so many of your analagies do not apply. Its just apples and oranges. Nothing wrong with it, just different. So in that light we are coming at this from completely different angles and it may be impossible to agree on anything. Thats OK. How YOU see the WTC is not what I asked. What is the goal of the WTC? What is the point? Also, do you have a membership card, or anything that indicates you are a member of the WTC? My club, the CPTA club and others do NOT belong to the CMA to have insurance supplied. This whole thing about supplying insurance is irrelevent to the conversation ( for our American friends) it works different here and clubs obtain really good insurance through private insurance companies at a very reasonable price. Free membership? Free rulebook? Helpful people? Getting a say in rules etc. You cant be serious? This is what you see as a contribution? These are all things that can be done through your club. The TAC is the engine that can now do all of this as i have stated many times before. The model you seem to refer back to no longer exists. Although no one you get direction from within the WTC seems to want to be honest about it, if they were successful in the bid to obtain the FIM affiliation, do you suppose you would still have free membership???? This was dicussed many years ago and I know the answer already but just wanted you to think about it. You would be right back where we already are. You and your club do not need anyone to hold trials in NS. That is the fact. I explained also many times how our clubs work and the entry fees how they support new riders encourage people to join etc. There is NO organization needed to help you with that. You are doing just fine. I am sure because of your geographical location and the newness of the club that you would love to have more events. Out West here we already have too many events and there is always a struggle to find free weekends to you cant use your own scenario as a case study. Apologies to not replying quick enough for you. We supported Canadian trials by driving from Vancouver Island to Saskatchewan for the Nationals. We left Sask Sunday after the trial and I arrived home on the island at 10:15pm last night.
