Danny and all former DNSO GA members or other interested

  You should have made yourself aware a long time ago now regarding the
bylaws Danny.  Evidently unfortunately you had not before inquiring
Bruces term.  I can only therefore wonder if you would be a suitable
candidate as you had several times in the past "Volunteered" yourself

However I agree and have expressed discontent on the part of our members

and myself as to the irregularity of the bylaws and the section that
references several times in the past..
