Roger problem...

          there was an incident at the last driving event to tahoe that needs to be addressed according to our by-laws

read the by-laws Article II Section 4

Every member of RMC will conduct themselves in a manner benefiting RMC while attending any Corvette-related event. Any conduct detrimental to RMC must be brought to the attention of the RMC Board in writing and is subject to membership vote for suspension or expulsion from RMC.

• Any member may be suspended/terminated by a majority vote of Club Members present after three-fourths of the Officers determine if suspension/termination may be in order. If suspension or expulsion is determined, no refund of membership fees will occur.

after discussing this incident the board voted unanimously to bring this before the membership..

present the incident...up to the second encounter

Roger as usual took the dog on the event

Roger took the dog into the restaurant

It was under the table as usual

the dog barked which alerted the management of a dog in the restaurant

we will continue from that point...

roger continued to eat after the manager left the table

the facts surrounding the initial contact about the dog are not terribly important... resulting response is important...so we will focus primarily on reaction by roger

we are not taking questions or comments until later...




emphasis on behavior

    not the issue with the dog

I emailed roger and asked to meet me at taco bell with intention of letting roger tell me what happened

     roger blamed jeff as the instigator for his behavior during the second attempt to remove the dog

     roger claimed no one told him he couldnt take the dog inside


     roger said there was not sign

     dogs presence was contrary to california law which they have violated repeatedly and roger admitted he had read california health and safety code regarding animals in food service areas but blamed restaurants for not informing him verbally or with sign at the entrance...the point restaurant is a recent example of ignoring signs


     roger was confrontational with me at taco bell...f-bombs...after listIning to his account I asked how this differs so much from other folks versions...claims of not listening to him...no change...Started becoming agitated...Sensing he would not alter his account I said to him that I guess were done...angrily walked off after repeatedly saying to him i am listening...more f-bombs...

From inside his car he rolls down the window>>>>>roger claimed that we the club have been "trying to get rid of us for years"

any more comments from event attendees?

I called an unscheduled board meeting

roger was offered an opportunity to speak to the board to tell us what  happened...no show

roger initiated the lets go outside and ended up raising fists

challenging jeff was inexcuseable and approaching violent

by the way the board voted unanimously to bring this before the membership...

we have 3 choices...

  do nothing



is there a motion...



secret vote

appoint vote counters
