May 2018 Presiden'ts Letter:
Fellow SNMSCI Members,
Well, I hope you were successful in the draw and that you will be able to spend many days this fall in pursuit of your favorite game. I have seen pictures of several nice Turkeys that were taken this spring. Congratulations to all who were able to get into the field. A day in the filed hunting is a successful day!!!!
The meeting with the BLM last month was well attended. Thank you to all of the people who showed up and expressed their concerns and questions. The BLM personal did a fine job in their presentation. As of this time the plan for the “lands with wilderness characteristics” has not yet been finalized. When it is the BLM has promised to get back with us. There will be several public hearings in the southeast part of the state. This lands have been on the list since 1979. While at this time I personally do not see a problem, we must keep diligent to make sure nothing is slipped in at a later time.
Mark your calendars for the following upcoming events:
- Late May: You will be receiving the ballot for the elections of the board of directors. This will be sent to you and you will have a 3 week time period to get your vote in. You must have a current SCI membership as well as a SNMSCI membership to be able to vote. If you are interested in running for the board, please contact Ed Garrett, Jalene Wenner or Phil Klopenburg who are on the nominating committee.
- July 14, 2018: We will be holding our Summer Picnic in conjunction with the Chaparral Skeet Club as we did last year. We will have 3 D shoot or don’t shoot course put on by our member Larry Hall from Albuquerque. He is Ed Garretts brother in law and this is a wonderful program. We will also be shooting some type of skeet or trap for competition and fun. We are also trying to work something out for 22 target shooting on the old west cowboy range. Black Betty BBQ will be catering the event. We will be needing a meal head count so please let any board member know if you plan to attend.
- August 17 and 18 will be our sporting clay shoot at the Eddy county Shooting Range. This is our second largest fund raiser. We are in desperate need of someone to step up to the plate and volunteer to Chair this event. Please don’t be SHY. Get involved and help the club out. I can tell you will not be sorry you took this step.
- December 21, 2018. Brian Baily has graciously offered to host or Christmas Party in his brand new trophy room. This will be a great time for all. Put this on your calendar now and plan to attend. More on this as we get closer.
Our May board and chapter meeting will be held on May 24, 2018 at the Roswell Country Club Don and Laurie Wenner will be doing the program on their recent fishing trip to Belize. Board Meeting at 5:30 and chapter meeting at 7:00. Please plan on coming out for a great evening of fun and fellowship.
Good luck and good hunting and fishing,
