Section 1: A word from the Prez ... uhuh-huh (my Elvis impersonation)
New news is good news
As you may have noticed I have merged the Armchair Revue with the Havoc and turned it into a quarterly release. It made sense to me to pool our resources etc so I used my not-so-considerable executive powers, sprinked some pixie dust and poof!, magically it came to be. Eat your heart out Copperfield.
Blackdog has really been earning his stripes (or should I say flea collar?) not only has he made the legislature more effective he is also picking up errors in phraseology (if that is the correct terminology) in the club charter. Good doggy, hey, down, down, get off my leg.
Speaking of Blackdog, John has taken steps, off his own bat, to talk to some guys over at BOP about creating an interclub tournament (similar to Rivals on the Rhine). I think the idea was to have a reciprocal tournament where PBEM was the format one year and the next time the CD was used, well something like that. Anyway now that the IAAPA CD Dept is seemingly once again down for the count then perhaps some other arrangement may need to be found.
More on this in the future.
Government Official resigns
Wrec-it, our HelpDesk Coordinator and CD Dept promoter has resigned. Eric (Wrec-it) had concerns with certain issues such as how our dues are spent, how the government is run, CD Dept, did man really land on the moon etc, that apparently he felt could not be answered or resolved to his satisfaction.
This is unfortunate as I feel that any problem or opinions can be discussed and ironed out, except maybe the moon landing issue, but definitely the IAAPA stuff......Ok Eric never actually mentioned anything about the moon shots, I couldn't resist throwing it in, my weird sense of humor getting the better of me.
I am sorry to see Eric resign in these circumstances as volunteers don't grow on trees and Eric did bring a lot of exuberance with his efforts in the CD dept. Thankyou Eric, your efforts were actually appreciated.
Hess has volunteered to take up the helpDesk duties. Thanks Hess.
Nip & Tuck
E-d-m-o-n-t-o-n... Edmonton.... gooooooh EDMONTON!
The IAAPA Convention will go ahead in 2002. It will be held in Edmonton, Canada, and as Al Gore stated recently, Canada is America's most important neighbor to the north. You just can't go wrong with an endorsment like that so if you are interested in attending the convention this coming November please contact Raist for further details at: email@example.com
Section 2: Mystery Guest Speaker
The Prez has left the building, now a word from our mystery guest speaker, brought to you straight from the senate steps,without further adieu, a standing ovation please for the one and only XTRA-ordinary Sephorin, IAAPA's very own Team SuperLeague coordinator. (not such a mystery afterall)
A warm greeting to all IAAPAers. Business in the senate has been proceeding apace. I'd like to first send out a big hello to our newest members: Ngarthl, SquishyBall, bobiner, Darkhorse, pops, skyace22, Tigger_The_Tyrant, spinboldak, Ultramagnus, ArAmesh, Spidey, Daninja, viking63, wargeneral, statshawn, Azuredevil, The_Spyder.
AND....(no, not another Aussie)
.....cruzybeerzman, who has certainly made his presence known on the Boards. I encourage all new members to stop by the IAAPA Bulletin Board to post questions, make comments, or just see what all the other IAAPAers are up to. Simply click on "BBS" at the top of the IAAPA home page.
It's not just an unpaid job its an adventure!
The Minister of Stats and Logs (Eric, AKA Raist) is looking for someone to take over the mentorship program from him. If you are interested, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is some other governmental area you wish to assist with, drop the President a note at email@example.com
We have ways of making you talk ~ a gentle reminder
Our current Minister of Recruiting is Spud (Alan), who handles everything from the Final Hurdle exam to membership contact information would like to remind members that If your phone number or address changes, you're not sure when exactly your membership needs to be renewed, you forget your password or just have trouble accessing your IAAPA account, send a note to the Minister of Recruiting at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will make all your problems disappear with his magic wand of recruiting.
Well, Sephorin could go on and on and on but unfortunately we have to chain him back up to the metaphoric galley oar (ala Ben Hur) that we poor govt officials must pull to keep this great club sailing smoothly.
This was an official IAAPA government release. Authorised, written, deleted, rewritten, edited, re-edited, stayed-up-all-night-writing press release from yours truly on behalf of all our hard working management team.
Until next time, Ciao.
