    Sorry Crainium, there is not one sentence in ALL the minutes where any treasurer insists that NTA Auction money be given to Mr. Crains client, Mr. Jackson, there are however MANY instances where Mr. Crain INSISTS that NTA auction money be funneled to his clients find, the Conservation Force.

    Sorry Billy, no 'passing the buck' on this one....... It's all in the minutes, minutes that you, in many cases approved. Kinda sucks, your own stamp of approval will be the source of your own investigation.

    Ready to take that $100 bet? Let's raise it to two-fitty! June buddy ;)

    DT10Sam No flow no go!

    He is scared of MP since Michael has been right with every issue so far and has the balls to call the shots and make Billy boy look stupid.

    No Bill, there is need for your input. It's time you produce ONE speck of evidence to prove what we are saying is wrong.

    I say that boldly, because you cannot.

    Bill, I gave you the $52,000 'other ecpenses' simply because as an outspoken board member, that one individual item should be easy for you to produce records on and make us look like fools. I used the $52,000 because I knew you could not! You keep runnIng your mouth and nothing comes out.

    YOU WILL be answering to your members about what is labeled as 'other expenses' ranging from $16,000-$50,000 thru other years in which there is not one reciept showing where this money went except for Greg Crain saying 'we used it'.

    This is NOT their money, it is also not their money for you to tell the membership 'it's none of your business where it's going'. These people worked damn hard to spend money at the convention of their association promoting their trade. This is NOT the World Show, and THIS IS NOT a private organization.

    Ever time you told me 'show me Michael P.!', I have showed you and backed it up with fact. Now I'm asking you, show your members through receipts where that $52,000 in 'other expenses' went. I told you weeks ago, show it and I'm gone....

    Harry Whitehead I love to hunt Buffalos!!!!!

    Bill, the Treasurer doesn't handle the money and you know it!!! Carol only handles a portion of it and you know that as well!! How can you possibly say the things that you are saying and most importantly, why don't you answer some of the questions that are presented to you, TRUTHFULLY????? Don't worry, we WILL get our answers in due time.

    Hi Mr. Bill

    Sorry if you feel I have neglected you recently. I've been a bit busy, but I do think about you often. I see your other friends, Elmer and MP have been interacting with you a lot. That's good. I know this is good therapy for you. One must cleanse their conscience every now and then. Just think of how much better you are going to feel once this is all over. You will feel like a heavy weight has been lifted off you. I am really proud of you for trying to do your part for the NTA membership. As "ethics chairman" you are showing just how bad the ethics within the NTA really are. I appreciate you joining our team. With YOUR help, we will burn the NTA to the ground and from it's ashes a NEW beginning will arise and we ALL will have you to thank for helping us cleanse the NTA of all it's impurities. They may even name an award after you. You will live on for generations. Wow, just think of the honor. Now, as part of your therapy, answer the questions and FEEL those heavy burdens melt off of you. You'll be glad you did. The first step is the hardest, but we'll be right here with you every step of the way. You can do it Bill. Show a little strength and take that first step. Answer the question, Where is the 50 Thousand?

    Faithfully your Friend
    Antler

    Harry, why are they called "treasurer" if they don't handle the money.
    CM, I am not the ethics chairman. Resigned from that a long time ago
    as far as the 50 thousand, ask the bookkeeper. I don't know. I do not keep the books.

    But as a board member, don't you have a vote on an expenditure this large?

    So you resigned much in the same fashion as all the previous directors who have resigned when you felt you could no longer be ethical, or accomplish anything good and worthwhile?
     
  20. Mr. Haynes, While this may fall on blind eyes. Please do everyone a favor and use people names. Please stop using the cm. The derogatory term is really beneath you.
