Tuesday November 28, 7PM - Annual Meeting & Elections

Tuesday November 28, 7PM. Chalco Hills NRD Building

Election of Officers & Board:

As reported in an earlier email we have nominees for all the open TU 710 offices except for that of president. We are still working on that and would welcome nominees from the membership. Further nominations will be taken from the floor during the meeting if anyone has them.  We will report any such nominees to the membership in an email and give people not at the meeting time to vote by email if they wish. The nominees currently are:

Vice President: Rich Keuchel (1st 1 year term)

Treasurer: Dave Jacobs (3rd 1 year term)

Secretary: Rodney Schwartz (2nd 1 year term)

Board Member (3 year term): Lindsey Chizinski

Board Member (3 year term): Aaron Miller

Both Lindsey and Aaron would be new to the board. Aaron has been active in the chapter especially connected with our work with veterans, and Lindsey until recently worked as a Fisheries Biologist with Nebraska Game and Parks working in youth education and overseeing Trout in the Classroom.

Bylaws Amendments:

Also we have some minor bylaw amendments we hope to pass at the meeting on a recommendation from the chapter board. You can find them at mvr1.com/TUminutes/TU710amendments2017.pdf . The amendments are in red. They mainly clarify the term of the immediate past president, raise the dollar amount at which the president must sign checks, and make explicit that we allow absentee voting in chapter elections.

The Annual meeting will be at our usual location at the NRD Building At Wehrspann Lake/Chalco Hills in Omaha. A map to the meeting location is at: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Papio+Missouri+River+Nrd/@41.170976,-96.155677,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xf4532f4b45e88587 .

Sunday October 15, Fishing at Doc's Pond near Weeping Water 

We're planning on an afternoon of fun, fishing at Dr Schlichtemeier's family pond which holds large bluegill, largemouth bass, crappie and gigantic grass carp.  People will probably get there around noon. The fishing is usually very good. We'll have water and soft drinks to accompany whatever you bring for a potluck picnic.  We plan to have a charcoal grill available to grill whatever people wish to bring.  Fly fishing is not mandatory but we will have a few spare rods to share if you don't have one and wish to try.  All welcome, kids included!

The pond is not quite 10 miles East of Weeping Water and a couple of miles to the West of Highway 75, on the North side of Weeping Water Road. Email me (mvr1@earthlink.net) for a Google map link for the exact location.

Chapter Annual Meeting Postponed to Tuesday November 28, 7PM.

Because of delays in finding a nominee willing to serve as our next chapter president the TU 710 board decided to put off our annual chapter meeting with elections until November and to update the membership on the nominating process. As things stand we have the following nominees for open positions:

Vice President: Rich Keuchel (1st 1 year term)

Treasurer: Dave Jacobs (3rd 1 year term)

Secretary: Rodney Schwartz (2nd 1 year term)

Board Member (3 year term): Lindsey Chizinski

Board Member (3 year term): Aaron Miller

Both Lindsey and Aaron would be new to the board. Aaron has been active in the chapter especially connected with our work with veterans, and Lindsey until recently worked as a Fisheries Biologist with Nebraska Game and Parks working in youth education and overseeing Trout in the Classroom.

We're still working on a nominee for president and would be happy to hear your suggestions. We hope to give plenty of notice before the membership meeting and additional nominations will be taken from the floor if those present have any.

Also we have some minor bylaw ammendments we hope to pass at the meeting on a recommendation from the chapter board. You can find them at mvr1.com/TUminutes/TU710amendments2017.pdf . The amendments are in red. They mainly clarify the term of the immediate past president, raise the dollar amount at which the president must sign checks, and make explicit that we allow absentee voting in chapter elections.

Board/Membership Meeting 7PM Tuesday September 26th

We will have a regular chapter board meeting at 7 PM on Tuesday September 26th at the Papio-Missouri NRD Building at Wehrspann Lake/Chalco Hills Recreation Area. Offically it is a board meeting, but  members are welcome to attend and talk over the issues that arise.  Primary work will be hearing from our nominating committee about nominees for offices to be elected at the October 24 meeting and making a decision to forward a bylaws amendment to the membership limiting the number of successive terms without a break for board members. The idea would be to open up positions to new faces.

We'll also make final plans for a fishing outing to Dr. Schlichtemeier's pond on Sunday October 15th. If past visits are any guide many fish will be caught and much fun will be had by those who come out.

After the business meeting is over we generally go to the Choo Choo Bar & Grill, 14240 U (off Millard Avenue) for socializing.

Please do come and participate or drop by for drinks thereafter!
