I didn't have a problem with "my choice". Just look to the left to see what you'd be choosing. 6.1.2 though will have to be ignored.

We flubbed that question.
6.1.2 will shortly be revised to
""If start out the top is retained, do you favor retaining (yes) or eliminating (no) the rule only giving distance credit for starts in the front half of the cylinder?"

On question 3.1 under Tracking, there could be multiple answers. I use both an InReach and a cell phone tracker.

Thanks!

Default US Competition Pilot Poll

I would like to see the current opinion poll published PUBLICLY each year and not hidden inside the poll tool.

What are you guys so afraid of? Why are you hiding this document? Even though only a few take the poll the methods and topics are useful for the entire SSA membership. No?

Where can we see it? I look forward to discussing how some the questions are leading and "framed" (ROTFL). It's hilarious.

I took screenshots of course, but would like to give the RC the opportunity to publish their poll themselves on the SSA website so we can see what they are doing (those not "qualified" to be included in the poll…"

Ill give this 48 hours…then its weapons free.

The way these questions are written is nothing less than hysterical and it must be discussed in open forums and on social media.

Thanks,

Sean

lol @ Mr Internet Tough Guy. I was just wondering out loud (yesterday, I have witnesses) who you were going to insult, next. You're getting awfully predictable there.

It is sort of interesting that this has escaped your notice....

Yep, there are all the opinion polls, with responses, all handy and public. Not the 2017 poll, yet, of course, but in due time, they always publish.

Cheers,

The secret to the hidden poll tool is to enter any name and any number, then you can see all the questions. To submit, the name and number have to be valid.

It isn't hard, you just need to stop complaining long enough to give it a try.

Thanks Guy,

For pointing that out and

for answering what was a "Deleterious" statement!

"Deleterious" defined as harmful, damaging, detrimental, injurious; adverse, disadvantageous, unfavorable, unfortunate, undesirable, bad.

Best. Tom #711.

Not the answers, just the raw poll. We need to demonstrate how the RC tries to lead the witness. Total joke, every year. Bias. Do t worry, I’ll shine the light.
