The May general meeting was our annual business meeting. Each year we vote on the Board of Directors (during odd numbered years) and, every two years, we vote on the Officers' positions (during even numbered years). This year, we had three board members that removed themselves from the activities of the Board. WSA would like to thank Sharon Rose, Ron Poppe, and Ric Johnson for their service and dedication to the WSA. We wish them well. They are being replaced by, Ryan Los, Dave Dahlon, and Jim Ross. We look forward to working with them and moving forward with the activities of the coming year. Read the Full Newsletter Here.
This will be the third meeting with the new format. The meetings are now much shorter, more informative and allow more time to talk with fellow members. Come and join us for an enriching evening. There have been some requests to change the start time of the meeting from 7:00 PM to 6:30 PM. If this is of interest to you as a member and it means the difference in attending or not, we need to hear from you. Please direct comments on this to the " Contact Us " section of the WSA website. We look forward to your responses. Read the Full Newsletter Here.
The next general meeting will be at 7:00 PM and end at around 9:00 PM. We will be having a special presentation from the Enforcement Officers of the WDFW. At the beginning of the meeting, they will be sharing the issues of our area and taking our questions. We will be talking about the Game Feed and the Sportsman's Show. There will be an opportunity to be involved in the events and activities that are coming up this year.
