Re: Seeking a Go-Ahead for Nat'l Club
- I'd be willing to help out with a National Club, but I need to know
the purpose of this club first. I would like to know the differences
in responsibilities between the USATT hardbat committee and the
proposed National Club. Also, what is the goal of the hardbat
committee, and what is the goal of the club?

- Perhaps one distinction to be made is that a *CLUB* works to further
the wishes of its members, while a USATT *COMMITTEE* acts for the
bebefit of USATT and table-tennis, as a whole.
As an example...a Club could lobby a tournament director to replace a
juniors' event with a HardBat event...while it's unlikely a USATT
committee would find that a practical position to take.
Another...a Committee can't organize and sponsor a HardBat (or any
other) tournament, while a Club would find it a laudable goal..
