I have a PM from member ALYF, which contains nothing and says nothing.
Is it from Australian Land Yachting Federation....ie genuine ?
or is it just some mungbean upgrading his statis,,,,,,,,,,
I thought ALYF ws a little ....sorta dead......
ALYF (Australian Land Yachting Federation)???? Yeah I got it too.. It looks like it is a FORUM Splash.. Just Delete it and hope it goes away.. If needs be the Web Master should be able too Track It.
Upon going to the site and clicking on the photo on the right one will see two fellows wearing "Adelaide Landyacht Club" T shirts.
Holding out an "Olive Branch"?????
I haven't recieved any emails like this.
If you have no interest in it I think Nikrum's approach is a good option. PM me if you feel the need to take things further or lodge a complaint. Up to you guys
There's a website?
Here are a few things that Ive come across with a few minutes on the web and just a few mouse clicks... (and a quiet day at work)
Yes there is a website for the ALYF but why is it registered with an anonymous web hosting site.... in CANADA !!!!!!
Nice one, are ALYF trying to hide it's identity already good start, how about using an Australian web host site considering there are many on offer.
Don't forget this is a line from the ALYF site...And as mentioned the ALYF was to be transparent.
use "spell check"
Is the ALYF a "commercial business" or a "not for profit organisation" If there is yachts being imported for sale then it would be a business... right?
So what is it... it can't be both
And if ALYF is a business and were to run the national sport, just like world series cricket and Kerry Packer in 1977 that would make the land sailors of Australia employees of that company... WOW a paycheck for land sailing
Splitpin you say you don't recognise ALSA, well many others, including the WORLD Governing Body F.I.S.L.Y do....
Gismo show me where i said i did not recognise AlSA, i said i did not recognise ALYF .
if ALYF is importing a container of standarts , perhaps you could enquire with david Webster. I recall him being the seagull distributer.
havent heard from him in a long while, but he may be active is some capacity
So what I make out is the Rats are loose again. " splitpin " is a front for the
seemingly new set up body and to me is possibly closly related to the "wheelnut'
importer, none appear very genuine........[}:)]..am I being too harsh ?
Hey! If it Looks Like a Turd, Smells like a Turd and it came from the hairs around your Butt then it must be a TURD! If they were genuine they would Speak plainly and sign there posts with a Name to give us the friendly intent..
Don't add fuel to the fire guys. Things will sort them selves out in the end. This is exactly the response they where hopping for.
Remember this site is for the benefit of land yachting and to help people get started in sailing/building yachts and as far as I can see has been extremely successful in doing so, with people from all over the world joining the site.
So lets focus on the positives and not the negatives that can ruin a good day
Well said Vic. Hence the removal of my last post before the time ran out.
Totally agree with Vic.
Joe, I can't give any info that admins only can get to, but I can say you're definitely wrong.
I guess I am fighting a Lost Cause as my intent in the Harsh Posts in matters of this nature is to try to Winkle Out some Names from the perpetrators, with no apparent luck.
The results in themselves tend to show the genuineness of the originators. So let us ignore them now, end this Thread and Hope they Dry Up and Blow Away.
this is why I as a misfit prefer to "stick to myself" and not get involved with the politics and power struggles of it all
I feel left out I didn't get any PM's from them !
almost makes you want to give up land sailing and take up knitting or something
thanks Hills...I see what your saying....plain as day.... however
i dont feel too happy about hidden intent. I have just been advised by PM
"that my crap is being forwarded to ASIC", i'm really shaking in my boots LOL
my crap dosent match their crap [childish]
You have a higher Branch in the Tree than most of us. How's about you Lock this Thread and let it die as it is just going to go on and annoy the Crap out of Most of Us.
why lock it? just dont open and read
it's all very sad reallyand sad for land sailing in this great country of ours but i'm proud to be a misfitso i guess that cancells out all the negatives
oh by the way 21st jan is on for a bit of a fun sailing day at Pt Gawler beach from about 10.30 or so, so come on out if you're not busy,, fun sailing you remember that don't you ??
A good discussion is a healthy thing, but I really like to know who it part of the conversation. Having no details gets everyone's goat up. I would hope we are all mature enough to realize this, other wise people will continue to think there is an alternative motive to there posts
Hey it's not my thread, I just posed a question for disscussion....and the little bits
and pieces are ......interesting as Seabreeze allways is
Here, here Cisco and Vic, I suggested letting this thread Dry Up and Blow Away as our Purp's have gotten there way..
When I was younger and a member of the Armed Forces we had a couple of blokes in the Barracks Room next door who would argue about anything at all up too and including the sex of two fly's on the wall. Their arguments in the early stages became a Damned Pain but after awhile we would go start another one Just For the Hell of it..
it was a Good S**t Stir. These guys have been given their way AGAIN
