    From a personal point of view i am truly thrilled and great to be part of a forum and organisation that has our interests at heart.
    However there are a few questions and clarifications that no doubt will arise and here are a few amongst others...... just some clarification before assumptions are made.

    1) Will the MASA membership to SAPTA automatically make all sponsors members of SAPTA?
    2) Will all MASA sponsors have to become SAPTA members?
    3) Will MASA align with the SAPTA code of conduct or visa verso? Any synergy?
    4) Is there a forum on MASA for SAPTA members?
    5) Will MASA send out open notifications of issues and concerns relating to aspects regarding the hobbyist.
    6) Will MASA have a open inquiry base as to future legislation reported to and, from SAPTA and other entities? and how will this work?

    Some clarification would be appreciated please.

    Before people misinterpret my posts i am very thrilled that MASA has Joined SAPTA. It will give both SAPTA and MASA so much more representation in the industry. Definitely a move in the right direction by both entities.

    Some of my questions may seem strange but the point that i am angling at is what the Cycad and hunters associations have done. Here are some examples.

    I think that it is extremely important that members get informed of the goings on in the industry. Just something for Admin to consider.

    We joined SAPTA as they are heavily involved in fighting the current legislation controlling our hobby, especially with the proposed restrictions on imports and then also this fragging nonsense, just so that we can be kept in the loop and possibly help where we can if influence is needed to swing the vote in favour of the hobbyist. There's no need for any of 1-4 and 5 and 6 we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

    It was great to see a MASA representative at the SAPTA AGM. Superb guys, shows great commitment towards to hobby and industry.

    It was also great to see all the sponsors that support SAPTA also there. Big ups guys.
    @viper357 is there a smiley for the SAPTA logo available for the SAPTA members and supporters to add their footers?

    No, you can simply resize their logo and put it in your signature if you want to.
