Ahhhh, the examples you gave coupled with that statement expand on the original, I can see more where your coming from with regard to what I considered a slighlty dissproportionate original complaint.
I'm a great believer in market forces, old school in that department, and doubt very much you are alone in your feelings about your club.
It would be great to know if there was strong support in that area, perhaps to suggest to the club to change their management or adopt certain rules for days or something to better represent what you originally enjoyed about it. Possibly some of the agrieved others have already found another venue and might let you in on the secret :)

I still also think that "move on" still applies, it can mean change tact rather than change location. Not to sound patronising, but keep going with the Courtesy and search for like minded people.
They are out there still! But perhaps change the way the search is run etc
You live in America? There's enough space, build your own course! :)

Maybe thats one of the answers right there, you taught your kids, many people do not. This is then repeated.
I think, therefore I compile

As I realise you're a bit thick, I'll explain. You are already a dabbler (a particularly shallow one at that) and you never will grow up, though I understand you continue to grow in diameter.

:P

I'm not sure that any of the heavy-lifters currently available could manage the job.
Perhaps a low, unstable orbit, but then who would want to showered with hot lard as he re-entered the atmosphere?

I think the hot lard would burn up in a huge fireball. Perhaps an unstable orbit that'll result in him dropping (or should it be dripping?) out of the sky at night would be better.

Well, I was hoping he might break up on re-entry, the thought of a flaming lardy mass plunging onto some unfortunate country, or even into the sea is too much to err... stomach.
