It has recently come to my attention that, according to my source, both the City of Roses and Portland Bridges Chapters were QRTed by CM without notice.
It seems to me that many of these chapters go QRT due to CM/CH becoming a SK; which would be understable. However, I do think that perhaps the "right thing" might be to poll the membership and get a vote before destroying all records of a chapter. Perhaps there should be a "repository" for records of 10-10 chapters. This might make it easier to reactivate a chapter ; especially after a long dry spell on 10 meters such as we are presently going through.
All avenues should be explored before QRTing a chapter. Many have put a lot of work into updating their lists with some of these chapters and I can't begin to imagine the amount of disappointment someone would feel after having spent years working on a particular chapter only to have the CM/CH "pull the plug" on the chapter. Running a chapter is a committent which shouldn't be taken lightly.
My own chapter , S.N.I.T.T. which is presently inactive, will be reactivated once 10 meters returns to its old self again... at least that's the plan. Seeing any chapter go QRT is like seeing old friends in the SK list, but to QRT a chapter without fair notice to its participants is almost criminal.
Any differing opinions ?
