Hi All –

I would like to thank all the club members who supported me for a second term as President of CRCM.

I’d also like like to thank the outgoing 2009 Officers, Treasurer Ray Donati, and Secretary Ray Tinley, and am fortunate to still have their input as board members. I would also like to thank the outgoing 2009 Board Members Ed Bywalec and LeRoy Cordes. Your guidance throughout the year was greatly appreciated and welcomed.

I’d also like to welcome the new 2010 Officers, Treasurer David Rosenblatt and Secretary Don Vemmer, as well as Greg Ross once again as Vice President.

It is shaping up to be a good 2010 for CRCM, with some new ideas and direction ahead.

This past month has seen our annual swap shop and auction. This event is very important to CRCM and was once again quite successful. Directing the event again this year were Joe Schubkegel, George Schubkegel and Steve Fortman. Thank you Joe, George and Steve for a job well done, and to all the people who volunteered to help set­up beforehand and helped take down afterwards.

December 5 is the date of the CRCM awards banquet, this year once again to be held at the Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation and hosted by Bob Roggeveen and his wife Chris. From all accounts, everyone who attended last year had a great time. The food and the facility were excellent. This year’s event is shaping up to be another great time, so don’t forget to make your reservations.

Until next year ­

Gregory Palace
