January 17th Meeting includes a program by Brian Paulsen of the Oregon State Marine Board.

Our January 17th meeting will feature a presentation by Brian Paulsen – Boating Safety Program Manager for the Oregon State Marine Board. Brian oversees Outfitter Guides, Marine Law Enforcement, Waterways and Boater Education & Outreach for the OSMB. Brian plans to discuss the various roles and duties of his position at the Oregon State Marine Board. On a personal level, he describes himself as a lifelong boater and fisherman.

New Embroidered ANWS Logo Patches are here!

We recently received a dozen embroidered ANWS Logo Patches and now have them available for sale. The patches measure 5.5 inches long and 2.25 inches tall and are good fit for your favorite shirt or jacket (if you can get them sewn on). They will be available at our next meeting at a price of $8.00 each.

Salem Steelheader DVDs now available for purchase

For many years, Salem Chapter member Dave Hopfer served as our official “Club Videographer.” During that time, Dave recorded a large video library of many past program speaker presentations and other club events. Shortly after Dave passed away last January, his family donated his collection of over 134 DVDs to our club. Since then, our Past Secretary Bob Johnston has taken on a new role as “Club Archivist” and has been creating an inventory of those DVDs for future enjoyment by our members. Bob says he plans to complete an inventory listing soon. So, if you would like to have a copy of a past program presentation, please let him know. DVD copies will be available for purchase at $10.00 each. The proceeds from all sales will be donated to our Salem Chapter.

Our Next Board of Directors Meeting is Scheduled for February 1st

As usual, our Board of Directors welcomes Salem Chapter members to attend our Board Meetings held at Sportsman’s Warehouse at 6:30 PM.
