Fellow SNMSCI Members,
I want to thank Don and Laurie Wenner for the great program that they put on about their recent Belize fishing trip. It sound very interesting to say the least!!! I do think that they had a good time, just not quite what they had expected. Again thank you very much.
You should have received in the mail by now your ballot for the elections of your board for the up- coming two year term. If you have not received it please contact a board member and we will make sure you get one. A few reminders about your vote. Vote for no more than 5 individuals. You must have your name on the bottom of the ballot. This is not because we want to know who you voted for, but so we can verify that you are a current SNMSCI member. The ballot must be returned and received by June 25, 2018. You may mail your ballot back to SNMSCI, PO Box 1922 Roswell, NM 88202 or turn in to any board member.
Wow, what great publicity we received for our donation to the Roswell Zoo for the new Mountain Lion exhibit. The photos and article in the Roswell Daily Record really showed what our organization is all about. Thanks to all of our board and other SCI members who showed up for this presentation. I am proud to be a member of this organization and proud of the recognition we have received. This has been in the works for almost a year. Thank you Nathan and Jalene Wenner for getting the ball rolling on the worthwhile project.
The Northern New Mexico Chapter has voted to disband their chapter and have asked if they can combine with us. Our board of directors have voted to accept them. The next step is for the National MCDC to approve this merger. This should be voted at the August Board meeting in Jackson Hole.
Our annual picnic fun day will be held Saturday July 14, 2018 at the Chaparral Skeet club. Things will kick off at 9:00 am. We will have skeet and trap shooting, a shoot or don’t shoot 3D course, and also 22 shooting at the cowboy range. The meal will be provided by the chapter and will be catered by Black Betty BBQ. Please put this on your calendar and let us know you will be attending as we will be needing a head count for the meal.
Our annual sporting clays fund raiser will be held on August 17 and 18. This is always a lot of fun. If you can help out it would be greatly appreciated. Also if you know someone who would like to sponsor a team or if you would like to shoot please get in contact with us.
I attended the May national SCI board meeting in Washington DC. It was a good meeting. We have two Directors at Large that are members of our chapter. Congratulations to Don Black and Herb Atkinson on your election.
There will be no chapter meeting in June. If you know someone who has been on a hunting or fishing expedition who would like to give a program at one of our chapter meetings please let us know.
Good luck and good hunting and fishing
Our 2018 Banquet and Fundraiser was a huge success. THANKS EVERYONE !!!
