    Africa...are there other continents to hunt?
    I got voted in last night as the new President of our local SCI Chapter (Great Plains Chapter). Woo Hoo. Now the work/fun begins!! I'm actually pretty excited to take a more active role in our chapter and in SCI in general. Is anyone else active with their local chapter?

    Congrats Tom! I am president of a new chapter where I live. It is lots of work, but good people around you will make the job easier. Maybe I will see you at the board meeting in DC mid May.:)

    Congratulations Tom! I think you'll find serving as chapter president to be a very worthwhile and rewarding experience. I salute you for stepping forward and becoming involved.

    Quite some time ago I served as president of the Los Angeles chapter which is the founding chapter of the SCI organization. I remained very active on a local level for more than twenty years but more recently I've enjoyed stepping back and taking my place at a table in the rear of the room. I very much enjoy the many friendships I've made over the years through my affiliation with SCI and I presently maintain a membership in two local SCI chapters.

    Congratulations and best of luck to you!

    I'm not sure Tom. I thought the Jackson Hole meeting was August. If it is September I may make it, but it will depend on the dates as I will be in Europe for a couple of weeks in September.

    Now that we both know how long Big 5 was chapter executive we know who to turn to for direction when we need it. ;)

    . . . Kelly, you'll find me waaaay in the back of the room at a table with a few other has-beens. I'll be the guy with the double scotch rocks. All kidding aside, I do sincerely congratulate you and Tom and respect you both for accepting the responsibility of leadership within your respective chapters. Too many folks want to sit on their hands yet enjoy the benefits provided to them by the hard work of others like you.

    I wish you both the best.
