If they can't put a team roster together from within their own ranks they probably shouldn't have one.

For you r information according to rules a drill team can merge with another department providing the other department gives permission. They are un der the other team s insurance and not Copenhagens.

The drill team needs to be it's own company and have nothing to do with the fire dept. That's about the only way to solve all off this stupid shit.

To Lucky this can't be done as a department has to sponsor the team however they can raise their own funds

Wouldn't that be nice, raise their own funds. Yes, the cubs team does raise some of their own operating expenses, but not all of them. Yes, they pay for their own shirts, race fuel, racing/drill equipment, and truck parts. BUT THEY DO NOT pay for the fuel that goes into the hauler to take them from drill to drill, the maintenance on that hauler, the insurance on the drill trucks and hauler, the electricity used in the drill team building, the hotel rooms for convention, any soda/beer left over from any dept. Events even gets scrounged up by the drill team. Yes, field days does offset the cost, but it barely covers fuel costs to truck them around. Last year Jim argued the savings the dept. Would see if they sold three trucks and bought just one multitasking truck, I think I just listed the first three to go!!

resident convention is for all members also the insurance is paid under a blanket policy it is an agreement between the two about gas for the vehicles as they are considered department vehicles. .

Yes they can merge but not sure it is an issue. All the other dept's that were in a merge with the cubs team left because of all the BS. Other depts clearly don't want to be associated with all this unethical behavior.

Other drill teams also follow rules to allow the members to be on a drill team. Everyone on here bashes the drill sport but this team does not represent how other drill teams operate. Other teams are ethical and many are close. Camp together and enjoy the uniting of brotherhood. If anyone was part of this association you would be quick to understand that the cubs organization has lost respect and often are not included or invited in off track activities. They can say all they want about this being false but they are blind and ignorant to what or how people truly perceive them. Because of brotherhood, teams are civil but you won't see many incidents of any "cub" invited to people's homes.

Please don't let this group tarnish the Drill Team Association and the many great people that choose to participate.

To Drill, You are right that other teams and department merge, The cubs pay their dues to all organizations and have many people in high places. only in Northern but the State and they also have officials which is more than som e departments can say. Next you will be knocking the officials as well . Apparently you are jealous of those who have accomplished positions in the State and Northern New York.
