Well this is it, my last president’s message. I believe more people
would be interested in taking the job if they did not have to look
forward to getting them ready every first of the month. I would
sincerely want to thank the guys who serviced on the board with me. Bill
Armon has given us interesting programs each month. Dan Ehlmann, besides
being our treasurer, can be counted on anytime to be there to help. Dave
Crawford is another person that we could always count one. Marlan Graham
took the past president job reluctantly, but has been an asset in a
number of ways and We will always be grateful. Jim Gera headed up our
education programs and has always been on the lookout for get people
interested in fly-fishing or tying. Ed Olander has taken the outings to
a new level with new ones in the works. Al Bourisaw has made changes to
keeping track of membership to a new level of efficiently. If you need
anything about the who’s and what’s about the club, he is the man to
call. Scott Darrough is a guy that is so passionate about conservation,
it’s is best to stand back and let him go (as long as you have a fly for
his ever going on raffle). I would like to thank John Tymony for the
years he took care of the club’s communications. He did a great job
putting together the newsletter monthly. Jake Voss has taken over the
job and I am sure he will also do a great job with it. And then there’s
Jerry Kneipman. He did not want this job, but once he took it over
nothing could slow him down. You would not believe how much time this
guy puts into the banquet. For six weeks in December and January, it is
about all he does. What you see at the banquet is his doing. If you can
remember how the auction and raffle use to be, and how smooth everything
goes now, you can appreciate the thought and planning he has done. There
are others that help make this club what it is. Thanks to Mark
Thalhammer, Mike Ott, Mike Swederska, Bob Temper, Joe Aimonette, and Ed
Alright, that’s my last message. Hope to see you at the Banquet
-Steve Antonic, President, Ozark Fly Fishers
