These questions are why we need a member or interested party, knowledgeable in the subjects, that would be willing to put in some time (free) to determine the answers. So far, none have stepped forward, so we don't know if there is (are) such knowledgeable person(s) on the forum.

For now, I like the idea of a bunch of pilots talking about an organization more than a bunch of pilots being responsible for an organization.
This was Bob's idea and it was good.
The trigger point comes when hundreds of voices are demanding action be taken and that action is described in detail.
This means three things have happened.
1) Our argument has gained traction.
2) People are getting off the fence.
3) The easy part is over.
Well, at least I can tell the easy part isn't over yet.
I'm having too much fun.     :P

Curious how I was just on the phone with a U$hPa RD and he mentioned that the US Hawks isn't even on the Nat Org's radar. 243 people is not a small number. Are they all newbies? Probably not. Some percentage are Nat Org hang glider pilot members.

That's curious indeed. In the spring of 2015 I was expelled from USHPA by a nationally broadcast vote of their Board of Directors. What was at the top of their list of reasons?

USHPA's 2015 Expulsion Notice wrote:The behavior upon which the board has determined that you should be expelled from the association falls into the following categories:

1. Creation of at least two national hang gliding organizations with the stated purpose of competing with USHPA, one of which you currently control;

So I was expelled from USHPA by a vote of their Directors with the number 1 written reason being the creation of the U.S. Hawks, and yet a USHPA Director told you that "the US Hawks isn't even on the Nat Org's radar"? Did that Director even read the charges against me in the expulsion notice before he voted? Or did he lie to you when he said "the US Hawks isn't even on the Nat Org's radar"? Either way, it doesn't reflect well on the USHPA Board.
