As the acting president of Walleyes Unlimited, filling out the term of John Kelly, I’ve tried to make as many chapter banquets as possible. In the process, the one common theme I’ve noticed in all these chapter banquets is the dedication and drive behind the individual members as they go about making these local functions the success that they are.
It is amazing to watch these extraordinary people as they prepare for and present these great chapter fund raisers to their friends and neighbors. What a wonderful bunch of folks we have in our organization. It is very humbling to be president of this exceptional club.
I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Havre at our State Banquet. Steve Chvilicek and the Fresno Chapter have been going all out. I anticipate a great informative and enjoyable banquet and meeting. See you there!
