Hope all goes well tomorrow, sorry I am going to miss it.  I will be at the next one and might have at least one more guy to join and hopefully a couple.
Have fun! We will keep you posted on the details.

I don't know JK, now that you have the decal raffle going on, the crowd might get too big for the venue!

This will be one of the best MDF meetings ever ;). We will draw a few names out of a hat during this meeting. The lucky winners will have their choice of a Hunting-Washington.com decal, similar to the ones in this photo.

Yellowdog sells these on the forum, and I  can't think of a better way to spice up the night.

Be sure to make this meeting for your opportunity to win one of these amazing decals!

*note - 300 Remington Ultra Mag in photo is for illustration purposes only and not eligible for this drawing ;)
I'll throw in a couple 5"x10" MDF window stickers, too, so we have multiple winners tonight!

Not looking good that I will make it tonight. Had to take truck into shop today. Maybe it will work out.

Might be a low turnout. Hope it isn't too low. The guys at the brewery will stop me from reserving the back room lol

Go Figure, I have a ton of meetings at work today  :bash:

Official Chapter Name: Snoqualmie Chapter
Chair: Jim (jkthomps)
Co-Chair: Dave (DaveMonti)
Focus: Mule Deer (more to follow on what, where, how)
Banquet: TBD - looking for a venue and trying to hold our first banquet in June.

Online Info: https://muledeer.org/state/washington/

Dan
Regional Director
dan@muledeer.org

Rachel
State Chair
archeryhuntress@gmail.com

We had some happy winners with the drawings  :chuckle:! I think the next meeting will be even more successful because of the excitement and drawings we bring to the meetings!  :yike:

There was a lot more that came out of this meeting, but this provides some of the basics I know people were looking for. I left my notebook in my pickup, so I don't have any more specifics until I get home tonight.

I am looking forward to making this happen and putting more funds on the ground for Mule Deer in Washington.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am still learning this role, but will do my best to make our chapter successful.

Sorry about the last minute bow out move. Had to take care of sick kid and stir crazy wife. Sounds like a good meeting and happy to see some things got accomplished.

Good work, fellas.

It is all good. Family first! If DaveMonti didn't step in, you might have been a write in for the chair or co-chair.

I was just looking into joining the MDF yesterday.

I wasn't aware that a local chapter was starting up.

Is there an emailing list for updates on the local chapter meetings?

It sounds like we're on our way.  Thanks Jim and Dave for taking the lead.  This meeting venue was excellent - as we could actually hear!  The beer wasn't too bad, either.  :brew:

I don't think there is a list yet.  Thus far, communication has been through this forum.  Now that we have a chapter identity, I assume there will be elections for chapter president, secretary, etc.  Thus far the only appointees are the two volunteers for the banquet committee (although it seems like Jim is making a good case to be chapter president!)

I'll coordinate with Jim regarding scheduling and communication for the next meeting.  The regional folks are doing the heavy lifting regarding the venue for the banquet for right now (Thanks Rachel and Dan!)

I will say that those that didn't attend missed out on some very nice headgear!

Absolutely!  Shoot me a pm with your email and we will put it on the list. Will use emails as long as this forum and a couple other avenues to try and get the next meeting and banquet hoppin.

Sweet, looking forward to the next meeting. Glad to hear this one was a success. I was open to whatever and happy with the name and direction we are headed.

Thanks Jim, Dave and Dan, I will help out as much as I can.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

I missed this earlier. I will PM you later with some ideas I have. Thanks to Jackelope and MuleDeer, we have a master email list from the first meeting. Now that we are "official" we will utilize this list as a master list to send out reminders and updates about meetings and events. With Hunt-Washington.com, social media, and word of mouth, we will be able to bring good people together for a great cause.

If anyone would like to receive emails when they are sent out, please feel free to pm your email address, I will add you to the list.

I want to make sure we send a big Thank You to Dale and Hunting-Washington.com moderators and members. This forum/website is one of the strongest tools we as hunters, outdoorsmen/women, and wildlife enthusiasts have to come together in today’s modern society. There are a lot of great things we can do when we come together, and I am confident we will make great things happen.

Quick update: I checked in with the State Chair, and she indicated they are still looking for a venue. I am going to send an email tonight to everyone on the list after I get my kids to bed.
