    APBA elections


    The ballots will be going out of the Detroit office early next week, and you have until Jan 2, 2004 to return them. It took some extra time as they had to be approved by the Special Master/NY Court.
    Apparently once this election is completed, the Special Master is history and all governance returns to Detroit (except the Licensees per their individual agreements)

    Hope to see you at more Unlimited races next year. Our sponsorship (O'Berto) has been renewed and the team is working day and night to make the U-6 faster and better for the coming season. Course, so is every other team......

    Take care,

    Again, how do we know if we will get a ballot? Will APBA Offshore members get them?

    Good luck Steve and all other OSO members running.

    I just spoke with Detroit, they have 340 members from Offshore in 2003 that are eligible to vote in the upcoming election. Those members joined either directly through Detroit or at one if the races that were actually sanctioned through Detroit for the 2003 season ( Key West 2002, St. Cloud). Since some of the memberships went through St. Pete those memberships were never forwarded to Detroit for consideration. If anyone has a question as to if Detroit has your membership on record contact them. They have already had to tell some that they have no record of them being members and can't vote in the election. The ballots are at the printer now and will be sent out beginning of next week and must be returned postmarked by no later than Jan 2, 2004. Voting will be by proxy, you will cast your vote, the ballots will be counted by an independent auditing firm, votes will be cast that reflects those counted, by the APBA President at an annual election meeting to be held at the APBA HQ in Detroit on Jan 9, 2004. Any voting member can attend this meeting and cast their vote there or send in the Ballot/Proxy. This is the way the election will be handled from now on.
