Our Annual Banquet is now in the books, and it looks like another successful fundraiser for our Chapter! It’s getting to be a Valentines Day tradition for the Pecos Valley as we sold out early and I believe everyone in attendance had a great time. These events take an incredible amount of work and I want to thank everyone involved for their hours of work to make this event happen. Many people deserve a special “thank You”, and I will name a few, but please don’t get upset if I forget a name! I appreciate all who took part in putting this Banquet on.
Thank you Laurie, Stephanie, and Jalene Wenner for a great job putting the Silent Auction and Bucket Raffles together. Also for coordinating the decorations in the Hall, another fantastic job. Pancho, thank you for your work putting the hunts and the catalog together, even when you were being pulled in several different directions at the time. Ed, another great job getting all the guns, I appreciate all you do for the Club. Hud, Larry, Charlie, many thanks for all the work put in on the draw down items, ticket coordination and keeping track of the finances. Bob Parsons we appreciate you going above and beyond with the program year after year.
A special thanks also goes out to Herb Atkinson. Not only for the work he does for our Club, but also for what he has done in his position as our Region 10 Representative. As most of you know by now, Herb is retiring his Region 10 Rep position after 20 years of service and was recognized this year by SCI as the Regional Rep of the Year!! Congratulations Herb.
Please be sure to attend our next Board/Chapter meeting. They will be held on the 23rd at the Roswell Country Club. Board meeting at 5:30 followed by the Chapter meeting at 7:00. Kobus Meyer will be doing our program on Hunting in South Africa. Hope to see everyone there!
