The Race Is On !
When the list of nominated candidates for the coming AGM were announced by the GM on the box last week there were some oohs and aahs, but generally not many surprises for those who can read between the lines.
But something unprecedented was in the making. Never in the history of KH4 AGM have all the posts being contested, with the exception of the Inter On Sec. Is it good? Definitely! It showed democracy at work and the vibrancy of members willing to challenge the norm.
Another 1st was giving the floor to the contesting GM, ie yours truly and Messy to say our 2cts or $2 worth. Let's hope that these are not one off affair but regular practices in the AGM's to come.
Another positive outlook of this AGM is that there are members, old as well as new ones who are willing to serve. All was needed were some enticing, encouragement and a sense of purpose. To quote, "Ask not what the club can do for you but what you can do for the club."
There were some nibbling in yours truly ears on certain concerns and doubts with the names but all I can say is if you believe in me, just keep the faith. Look at things on a bigger picture and not a parochial view. I've the best interest of all parties concern. While it is difficult to please everyone, the interest of club and getting the job done are the main priorities and we must not lose sight of that. Even have been written and said and there are nothing more to add.
The finishing line is in sight. Come this week, 28/3/14, members must decide on what they want and cast their votes. There maybe some surprises or maybe none at all. Like I mentioned before, at the end of the day, whoever are elected there must be only one winner, ie KLANG HASH and not any individual. All must close rank, be magnanimous and move on.
After all, we joined hash for the purpose of enjoying good fellowship, having our weekly doses of golden fluid, a good sweat out, an opportunity to escape from the noises of our spouses (for the lucky ones) and not to have any animosities, blank faces and WTF's looks staring back at one another.
