Here are the provisions as best I can determine them thus far:
1. The 1998 election for USCF Policy Board member-at-large has been canceled. When the current term of office of Fan Adams expires, he will be not replaced.
2. In the year 1999, there will be an election. However, the general membership of the USCF will not be allowed to vote in this election. Rather, the existing 464 voting members will be the only voters.
3. There will be no election for policy board in the year 2000. Policy Board elections are canceled for that year as well. However, the general membership will be allowed to vote for their own state delegates. These state delegates will not take office until after the conclusion of the August, 2000 meetings.
4. In 2001, the state delegates, numbering about 500, will be allowed to vote for the policy board. This will be the first policy board elected even indirectly by the general membership.
It is readily apparent that this reform is not reform at all. It is even worse than what we have now. At least now we have some sort of annual election. The reformers have decided to cancel two out of the next three elections.
Is this legal? Can we do something about this?
I do not know. However, I believe that I can speak for a majority of USCF members who are interested in this sort of thing that: WE WANT YOU TO GO NOW. WE WANT TO GET RID OF THIS INCREDIBLE GROUP OF SHITHEADS WHO THINK THAT ONLY THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL HOW WE PLAY CHESS. PLEASE LEAVE, NOW. WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO LEAVE IN 2001. WE WANT YOU OUT NOW, TODAY.
Does anybody else have any opinions on this, or am I in the minority.
PS. Here is my latest masterpiece. Opinions are welcome. The Black side of this position is a member of the USCF Policy Board:
