What is wrong with ROAR. A guy comes along that actually wants to do the job and would be great at it and this is what happens. The racers speak with votes to say who they want. We want EA and ROAR comes up with some lame excuse of why he can't. Does not seem legit to me. I heard the same as Gee that the dude that is president now was never on the excomm board so how does that work..

My new moto is DTR...Don't Trust Roar.

DTR racing in full effect.

#DTR2015


Thanks,
Drew

Taken from EA's facebook page.

So I just want to go ahead and post here before people see it tomorrow from elsewhere.

I was contacted by ROAR Thursday of this week and informed that I would NOT be allowed to be elected ROAR President due to the fact that my ROAR membership lapsed for "50 days". Some how this year ROAR never sent me a notice that my affiliate membership was expiring soon (and I forgot) like they have in all the years passed (I wonder why they "Forgot" this year???). As soon as I realized it was expired I contacted them and sent the payment in.

Even on my new card it shows there is no lapse in my membership. When asked about this ROAR informed me that they date them as a "courtesy" to members so that it shows no lapse in membership. But I guess since this is finally there way of keeping me out of office I am not offered that "courtesy". It seems that they have tried to do everything they can to prevent the inevitable from happening. The email also stated that they had received so many votes for me that the only thing they could do was to allow any member who voted for me to recast their vote for another candidate.

This was the 3rd thing that was thrown up to try and prevent my bid for President. The good ol boy club just doesn't want to see someone in there that is actually ready to do the job and do the job right for all of RC...not just what they are interested in and their own personal agendas. I am actually pretty shocked about some of the comments Ive heard other EXCOM members saying about all of this as well but I suppose I shouldn't be all that surprised.

For anyone that signed up with ROAR just to vote for me that doesn't agree with how this has all been handled I would first like to apologize for the problems this has caused to any of you. Second I would call them and demand a refund of the membership. I am sure they will not want to do this and for most of you I am sure most used paypal for their membership. I would dispute the paypal charges in order to get your money back on the membership due to ROAR's decision.

Bump

Default Roar

roar (spelled in lowercase on purpose) is officially become a transparent JOKE>

well I do think they have just reduced the membership listing by XX%.....which will probably equal the death of roar (spelled in lowercase on purpose) in 2015.


I for one am embarrassed roar is the point of Radio Controlled racing representation in USA.
Perhaps its time to start a whole other entity which represents us.

I just hope the people will take action and not just say they will.

People need to just stop attending roar nationals...

There are plenty of other high level races where money is better spent.

I vote everyone that was planning on running a national stay home and club race. Don't sponsor anything either... hit them where it hurts. There has got to be a way for tracks and big race organizers to get rid of ROAR altogether. Babcock/Ernst/Boylan events sponsored by JConcepts works for me..

I guess that post has been moved to a private area. It is not available when I log in.

Steve Mruk is President because he was a regional director first.

What would you guys call a new sanctioning body? It all starts there.

Thank you for the clarification.

Mr. Mruk has also previously been on the excom as promotions director. So he definitely meets the requirements for holding his current position.

Just another nail in the coffin and why I won't run ROAR events. They are not getting one dime of my money. I work too hard to piss it way. Plenty of other racing I can do at places that don't support ROAR. Quit giving ROAR money as then they have no power to do anything.
