With turkey season well underway, I hope those of you that have been out hunting have had success and for those still heading out, I wish you good luck.
The second week of May will find Sharon and I, Fred and Lynn Spiewak, and Charmaine Wargolet in Washington D.C. for the national SCI board meeting. We have a number of meetings and the national elections at this board meeting. Charmaine and I are both on the National election committee so we will be very busy with the election process. Of the three person committee, two of us were nominated to the committee from the Wisconsin chapter. The chapter has put forth a good effort recently to become more active at the national level. Harry Mattox sits on the national ethics committee, Charmaine and I are on the election committee and Charmaine was also just reelected the region 16 representative.
I will also be presenting our chapter’s 30% check to the board at this meeting. You should be proud of what we all have accomplished with this year’s fund raiser. I know I am. I will be delivering a check for $51,000 this year. I can assure you, this will be one of, if not, the largest check from any chapter in the world. I will be honored to stand in front of the board, and all the other chapters, and present this check on the chapter’s behalf.
The best part of this meeting is the day on Capital Hill. The 5 of us from Wisconsin will spend the day on the hill meeting with our congressman and senators from Wisconsin. This will be mine and Sharon’s second time participating in the event and we look forward to sharing it with Fred and Lynn. Charmaine has taken part in the day on the hill several times in the past and will be a great asset during our meetings that day.
This July 15th will be our 28th annual Sporting Clays Outing. It will again be at the Waukesha Gun Club. Check in opens at 9:00 am shooting starts at 9:30. Get your friends and family together for a fun day of shooting, food and prizes. Hope to see you there.
