8/8/14 Board Member Changes

With a majority vote by the board, Carl Swartz has agreed to fulfill the remaining term as our OBH President. Also receiving board approval is Ken Warner stepping in to fill the vacated position by Carl as the VP of Membership & Publicity.

We still have two open positions on the board, both committeemen positions. We need someone to fill the Southwest and North Central District positions. Please contact Carl if you know of an individual or would be willing to fill one of these two open spots. Remember the person filling the position must live in that District.

The Southwest District shall be bounded by the Pacific Ocean, Highway 42 as stated above to the Northeast corner of Crater Lake National Park and including Crater Lake National Park, then south along the western boundary of Klamath County to the Oregon-California line and west to the Pacific Ocean.

The North Central District shall be bounded by the summit of the Cascades, Columbia River, Highway 395 and Highway 26. All cities and towns on Highway 26 are in this District with the exception of Madras (Central District). (Those cities and towns on Highway 395 are in the Northeast District).

8/04/14 Lighted Knocks

To all,

John Stone, an OBH Life Member and owner of The Archery Hut pro shop in Lebanon, is trying to gain signatures on a petition urging the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to legalize use of lighted nocks for bowhunting in Oregon. I've attached a copy of the petition form that John has prepared. If you have opportunities to get signatures from Oregon bowhunters on the form by posting it in your shops, taking it to your club meetings or 3-D shoots, etc., I'm sure John would appreciate it. Please gather up the signature forms and mail them to John so he receives them not later than September 30, 2014.

John's mailing address is:
John Stone The Archery Hut
190 Crowfoot Road
Lebanon, OR 97355

Thank you! Craig Starr 2nd VP Bowhunting and Legislation Oregon Bow Hunters

6/1/14 SECRETARY’S REPORT - Krissy Knox

Grateful & Ready for Business!

Summer is here, and it is time to prepare for the upcoming fall archery seasons! I hope everyone had a fun and successful spring of bear and turkey hunting. This marks my first official report as your new OBH Secretary. I’m so grateful to you all to have this opportunity to serve our wonderful state and it’s bowhunters. I look forward to meeting more of you, as well as working hard to protect our hunting rights and opportunities.

So down to business, nominations are open for the 2015 elections. Three positions currently remain unfilled: President, SW District Committeeman, and North Central Committeeman. If you are interested in any of these and reside in the corresponding regions (for the committeeman positions), please contact Interim President Carl Swartz.

Executive Board positions open for nomination are VP of Membership & Publicity, Treasurer, VP of Bowhunting, NFAA Director, Midwest District Committeeman, North Central Committeeman, NE District Committeeman, and Central District Committeeman. Nominations may be emailed to either Carl Swartz or myself, and close October 31. If you currently hold one of these positions, and wish to remain in office, you may nominate yourself. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Blessings to you all, hope to see you on the mountain!
