For those of you who missed the recent AGM and the very important and controversial proposal that was put forward – Jim Croft has been monitoring developments and reports the following:
In the beginning was the plan …
And then came the assumptions. And the assumptions were without form And the plan was completely without substance And the darkness fell upon the face of the sea kayakers.
And the Sea Kayakers spake among themselves, saying:
It is a crock of shit and it stinketh.
And the Sea Kayakers went unto their committee members and sayeth:
It is a pail of dung, and none may abide the odour therof.
And the Secretary of the Committee went unto the Vice President and sayeth unto him:
It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide it.
And the Vice President went unto the President and sayeth unto him:
It is a vessel of fertiliser, and none can abide its strength.
And the President went unto the NSW Canoe Federation and sayeth unto them:
It contains that which aideth plant growth, and it is very strong.
And the NSW Canoe Federation went unto the Australian Canoe Federation, and sayeth unto them:
It promoteth growth, and it is very powerful.
And the Australian Canoe Federation went to the Minister, and sayeth unto him:
This powerful new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of the sport of sea kayaking, and your office in particular.
And the Minister looked upon the plan and saw that it was good. And, in time, the plan became policy.
So… Watch out…
