Interesting. I was researching some of the statements about the
candidates and I think that vision on a board is much more important
than a specific plan of action- a specific plan of action can be made
once on the board and once all the information is more transparent to
the board members and more sustained insight is being given. You look
at all the board members and who is on the board, I think they would
do a good job at implementing Fetch's ideas. I think the fact that
Fetch is able to understand the Outreach program on a very meaningful
level is good for more reasons other than just educational value
alone, he is able to convey the (look at the cup stacking post)
importance of quality education and Ultimate curriculum. Also
understand that in Chico he started a tournament that has been
attended by players and teams from Austin, Arizona, California, Oregon
Washington, Idaho and Montana, (I believe) I could be wrong. That
takes some vision as well as leadership. He put forth much efffort
trying to get a womens masters division in Chico.

I disagree that you need to be a great player to be on the board. I
think you need to be passionate to be on the board and a good board
member. Fetch has demonstrated multiple times over and over that he
is passionate about the sport, there is no question by those who know
him. Beside the point, Fetch is a great player. He was voted onto
the All-star team at Potlatch and defends(and often shuts down) all
the big match-ups in the NW on a team that the got the #2 seed,
Revolver, out of a fierce region, he gaurds guys like Alex Nord and
Mike Grant. So if needing to be a good player to sit on the board is
a qualification, then he meets your criteria. Maybe he didn't come
out of a powerhouse school but that doesn't mean he is a bad player by
any means.

I think it's important to note things like this rather than letting
him be unspoken for.

Compared to Fetch, Ghandi looks like a child pornographer.

yea but isnt his big issue putting upa administrative efforts into
land/field aquisition? what kind of a role can the upa play in
achieving that goal? I'de say little to none. It is good that he has
td experience but, personally, i wouldnt vote for his just based on
his spirit zealotry. sotg is a dyin fad. works good for the zealots
i guess, but there are many callin for ultimate to evolve more in the
rule enforcement area. fetch offered no ideas or sign of being all
that motivated to face and tackle this ever pressing and controversial
issue.
