If you haven't done so yet. . .

Please take the time to thank Ron Gast and Matt Wickham for stepping up to serve as ORCA's new President and VP. It's a big commitment, and I can't think of two better members to fill these posts. Thanks guys.

David- your presidency along with the other club officers will be a tough act to follow. ORCA keeps getting stronger and stronger because of the steady succession of innovative and hard-working leaders. I’m certain Ron and Matt will keep adding to that legacy. ORCA is very, very lucky they are willing to serve.

Always big shoes to fill. Glad there are always those willing to serve. Never seen any bad leaders yet.

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement and support. These are big shoes to fill, and I recognize we all walk in the shadow of giants.

Feel free to submit to Ron or I any suggestions you have for any improvements. We are aligned with the strategies and direction the club has adopted and fully support the continued growth of orcaonline.

I would ask everyone that can do so attend the national show in 2020 in Frankfort, KY. ORCA and all clubs depend on the National and regional shows to breath life into the club, and sustain the human side of the club. We encourage anyone on this board to officially join the club and help us in our mission.

Lastly, keep having as much fun collecting old fishing reels as Ron and I are. That is the real point.
