Preparing Interview Questions, N-SSA Election Fall 2010

by Mike Kendra on August 16, 2010

I’m preparing a number of questions for the candidates running for office in the Fall 2010 N-SSA Elections, below are a few of my questions, please leave any questions you’d like to ask the candidates in the comment section below.

Question 1 for National Commander Candidates Linwood McMahon and Charlie Smithgall:

Skirmishing is an inherently expensive sport for new members: the uniform, leather goods, gun gear, a musket, lead, powder, caps, and don’t forget team, regional, and national fees, all these things can tend to put a damper on our hottest prospects. What will you do as National Commander to help teams who may have limited resources recruit new members, and keep start-up costs down for new members?

Question 2 for National Commander Candidates Linwood McMahon and Charlie Smithgall:

What is the one thing that you think needs to change for the good of the sport, in Skirmishing as we know it today?

I will also consider asking other candidates to answer interview questions if I find there is a demand to do so. Send me a message, or please leave your comments below!

I realize we all complain about the cost of getting into Skirmishing, but it can be done gradually and on a shoestring; especially compared to the other shooting sports. What I am really interested in is what does our next president plan to do about our continued and increasing long term debt? What plans does he have for the future of our organization fiscally?

My question for officers is What is the NSSA going to do to increase our visability during the Civil War Sesquicential? It seems this will be an opportunity to get new members.
