Naturally, this being a Blog, readers are are also invited to consider the long-held conspiracy theory that you can't believe anything the mainstream media say. ;-)
Today's column on page F2 of the sports section delves deeper into Thursday's extraordinary provincial/CCA summit meeting (see Oct. 24 below) with some eye-opening rumouring in addition to hard quotes from Cindy McFeeters, an elected official (ie. volunteer) recently decommissioned from the CCA board.
McFeeters: "What was most frustrating was the lack of information given to the directors to make the proper decision. And the provincial associations have asked the hard questions, and the CCA hasn't given them the answers they deserve."
Cameron says his newspaper tried to get the CCA to reveal the payout to lawyers during the TV deal renegotiations, but were "politely, but firmly, dismissed last month."
On the good news ledger, CCA has mailed the cheque to the hosts of the second-biggest Scott Tournament of Hearts shootout in history, the 2004 event in Red Deer. The magic number is $291,621.05, which will be split between area clubs based on their volunteer participation. Thanks again to Al Cameron for that one.
