Finally, Springtime!

With the incredible winter we’ve just had, it’s no wonder we look skyward, awaiting those halcyon days that follow.

At last, the time has come, but down here in the Southern California coastal areas we now see the overcast skies of gray May and June Gloom. Oh well, you can’t please everyone.

Filling reservoirs, rushing rivers, and super blooms are beginning to fill our stories and grace our lenses.

Our first OWAC Outdoors Zoom Event went very well with Matt Johanson giving a lively presentation, “Tales and Trails.” If you would like to give your own presentation to the OWAC membership via Zoom, let me know and we will schedule you for an upcoming OWAC Outdoors Zoom Event.

It’s time to stretch out to those places we’ve been missing and find the golden treasures we know and love.

The many years I have spent running my own business gives me a unique perspective on managing projects and creating effective programs. Coupled with the ten years I have been writing for Western Outdoor News these experiences have allowed me a set of skills perfectly suited for the OWAC Board of Directors. During my tenure as OWAC Vice President we have achieved substantial progress in the way OWAC operates and how we serve our membership. These contributions have been some of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my professional life. The further development of the craft awards program, working with each successive chair person, is among the many progressive developments I have accomplished as a volunteer on the OWAC Board. My interest in making OWAC work better, adding value both professionally and personally for each member, is the driving force behind my desire to stay aboard and complete initiatives recently begun. I seek your vote for re-election to the board so I may further the cause of OWAC and its membership and help it to continue to build as a unique, and outstanding, professional organization.
