We met in their back room a couple years ago and I brought my raffle deer rack, Mray brought his mule deer and CrazyElk brought his monster elk rack.   Was hilarious to see all the patrons gawk at the antlers on tables in the back room.

Maybe I should bring last years moose Euro?   

At the very least, can probably show you guys some pictures you haven't seen before...... ;)
I remember that, although I think it was 6 years ago Brad... :chuckle:

Sweet. It's looking pretty solid for the Gas Lamp in Issaquah.

Let me know when it's all ironed out. I'm interested in coming if everything clicks. I'm doing some stuff with the Ellensburg chapter too but this is much closer.

That's great, thank you.

I'm going to send a pm out to everyone who has mentioned interest thus far. The manager would like a rough head count when we get closer.
No rush but maybe at the end of next week, it'll be good to have a more solid head count.

sure is a long way to drive for a "pop"
We're working on getting a new chapter rolling around Walla Walla, too...and we have a brand new chapter in Tri Cities, with a meeting on the 21st if you're interested in learning more.

You have been talking to much to McKinley ... hahaha
Hey, talking to people is what I do!  We have chapters popping up all over the state, and starting to do bigger and better things for the deer all over!  Just since 2012, we've put just shy of $200,000 on the ground in WA state alone, all thanks to the great chapters and volunteers that we have here!

Looking forward to this meeting coming up.  As this is an informational meeting and startup, I will try to bring anything needed to help answer questions, put down a timeline, expectations, etc.  That being said, if any of you know that you have specific questions, let me know here and I'll either answer them here, or make sure to have the answers for you at the meeting.  I do my best to explain everything I can at meetings, but there are always questions that hit guys later, after the meeting, too.  So, if you think of something, post it on here, just to make sure we don't forget about it and miss it.  See you all at the Gas Lamp!

I think for question #1, what does this group need to do to become an official chapter of the Mule Deer Foundation?  Raise money, have an action plan, charter, meet certain requirements such as minimum number of members, identify a "territory", etc. 

Other than that, I suspect a lot of what this chapter does will be discussed and agreed upon by the membership.

Thanks!
Dave

To become a chapter, all the group needs to do is submit a Charter Application.  That's it.  No requirement beyond that.
That being said, there's not much use in having a chapter if the chapter doesn't do anything, like hold a banquet to raise funds to put on the ground, take part in local shows to promote and educate, assist or lead projects, etc.  None of that is required, but it is, after all, why most groups start chapters, and I would hope the same for this group and area.  Too much good work out there that needs to be done, and proactive people are the ones who get those things accomplished. 
Looking forward to answering any and all other questions either here or at the meeting.

Maybe move it to Hunting contests, events, organizations and charity next.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
