Yorke, McManus or Foley aren't members of a club. What are they going to do?

Please note questions can only be taken from club delegates and life members.


As a member of the VRTA I suggest that I can do this.

Any person wishing to be in attendance at the meeting must contact the office no later than Friday 7th October 2011, if you have not registered with the office by this date you cannot attend, unless you are a club delegate.


Will we see an agenda?

Can't recall which club these people are from, but they had to have been members of one to stand for the AGM earlier this year. I'm pretty sure Yorke represented Woodside.

Also, given that the VAL has waited as long as possible to both nominate the date for the SGM as well as announce it, this will likely hurt many of the early gifts, particularly VRTA which is only one week after the SGM, as the numbers are incredibly low due to many people waiting on the results of the SGM.

Why would the average runner care who is on the board and let it effect whether they run at a meeting or not? I find this hard to believe.

The decisions taken by the board directly influence the direction of the sport as well as the day-to-day running of each carnival.

Does the average runner care about entry fees?

Does the average runner care about scheduling?

Does the average runner care how events are conducted?

Does the average runner care if people convicted of anabolic steroid use are allowed to compete, train athletes or organise events?

Does the average runner care if people convicted of a crime are allowed to act as agents for bookmakers?

Does the average runner care about their handicaps or the handicapping process?

Does the average runner care about the quality of stewarding?

Does the average runner care about the behaviour of their fellow competitors on the track and at competition venues?

If you think the answer to even one of these questions is 'yes', then the make-up of the board and the conduct of the office bearers should matter given that they:
appoint and oversee the conduct of handicappers, stewards and officials,
review complaints about behaviour of athletes and trainers,
determine who can act as a registered trainer to competitors,
implement ASADA recomendations with respect to drug testing and failure,
help to mediate disagreement between clubs over clashes in scheduling of carnivals,

To put it more plainly, ignoring everything but the most important issues, if you want the handicapping and stewarding process to be fair, unbiased and transparent, then the make-up and conduct of the board is paramount. If you don't care about either of these things, then why are you running in the VAL?

And last I heard, the VAL had fewer than 30 competitors registered, which says to me that a sizeable portion of the VAL community is waiting to see what happens at the SGM and to hear both about the conduct of those who stood for the board as well as the plans for the season by the major clubs who called for the SGM.

Another propoganda campaign emerging. If you asked the average runner to name 5 board members you'd be struggling to get half of them to pass. For this season the meetings are set, the entry fees are set and the handicap system is in place. The sport has had enough of the scaremongering by the sour grapes crew.

Really?

Really? Try looking at the VAL website. The only events actually listed at the moment are the Tabcorp series and VRTA. If any of the clubs that called for the SGM are unhappy with the answers they receive at the SGM, they can run their events on their own or in conjunction with other dissatisfied parties. For this season, the meetings are anything but set; their order may have been established, but that they're going ahead as part of the VAL is not set in stone.

You people dreaming up this rubbish do the sport more harm than good , all for your own personal self interest. Do us all a favour and find another sport to bring down. As if these other clubs are going to run the season without the VAL. You are are a joke. We have Tabcorp back on board for the Trots, Broo sponsoring the womens 400m series, Spotsbiz novice races again etc. If the sour grapes crew hadn't jumped ship then we wouldn't have to put up with this continous rubbish you keep spurting out.

Same old tune.

My interest in this is as member of the VAL.

Given the underhanded dealings by the cabal prior to the 2011 AGM and subsequent conduct, as well as their previous priorities and behaviour over their many years in the sport, it's not surprising that you would accuse anyone wanting integrity and transparency in handicapping, stewarding and board member conduct as "bringing the sport down."

Cronyism and self-serving behaviour by the governors of our sport is unacceptable. But for some of you still hanging on to the good old days when inside knowledge, profit at the bookies and winning major gifts by any means was all that mattered, any threat to that hierarchy is aggressively defended.

And you know what? I'm just one voice amongst a large group in agreement on this.

If they didn't, why are registrations so low despite the first event being only a fortnight away?

If they didn't, why is there going to be an SGM? It takes a sizeable chunk of clubs to sign on to force and SGM, and these weren't minnows of the league - Stawell, Ballarat, Maryborough, Keilor, just off the top of my head.

Many members might not be able to name any, many or most of the board - a year ago, I know I couldn't, but the behaviour of the board combined with my interest in the sport has forced me to find out as much as I can. But if you asked members what their single biggest priority with respect to the sport was, I'm guessing the overwhelming leader would be a variation of "fair and transparent handicapping", probably followed by "balanced stewarding". The conduct of board members directly influences the ability of both of these key components of our sport to be fair and open, just as confidence in a sport's governance is integral to growth, marketing and development of that sport to a broader audience.
