Thumbs down Alexander New York Steam show no thanks

that time of year again for the Alexander NY Steam Show. Will I be going......??? ....NO.
I use to spend the week there and over $200 to the club. I'd help where I could and expected nothing in return. I'm not the only one. Plenty of others that have had it with this organization or actually it's leadership.
It's really too bad that these people in charge have this attitude of ''it's their world''. That they use this organization as their own property and piggy bank.
So far I believe it's now five people that are/were in this ''click'', have been caught stealing money from the club. Actual people in charge of their areas at the meet. Kind of odd that we never hear of any police involvement. Were they ever charged? They obviously were caught because you don't see them returning to the meet. Was the money ever recovered? Lots of money coming in but just where has it gone to? Looks more like lets keep this hidden from the public, because it's none of their business. I quietly brought it to their attention at the meeting.They brushed it off and I was actually told to leave it be. Maybe the State needs to take a better look at this organization.
This limited group likes to tell the rest of the membership to not use the grounds for anything, yet how they keep their personal items there. Again do as we say and not as we do.
or how they bully vendors into giving up services for their benefit.
Constantly pissing off people that come to display.
The childish attitudes of the security. Give someone a job title and watch their heads explode.
Not worth the money for dealing with this arrogant group.

Plenty of other options out there. When this group runs this show into the ground and leaves, then hopefully we can get a real leadership to head this up.

your not getting anymore of my hard earned money.
