President Message for May

31 May 2022 6:00 AM | Gelandesprung Web Architect (Administrator)

Good morning Gelandesprungers! It’s currently 6:46 am on April 30 and I’m out Turkey hunting. The action is slow so I figured why not crunch out this monthly dribble you have come to enjoy or destroy.

The Board and I are pleased to welcome Phil Heldt as treasurer and Scott Wederquist as Vice President. Both have stepped into the role with enthusiasm and new ideas. Scott is already grabbing the proverbial bull by the horns and getting to work on mid- west trips. Meanwhile Phil twiddles his thumbs waiting on registrations to roll in. I guess he has it easy the next few months. I’m very pleased with their addition to the Board and their energy thus far. I would be amiss if I didn’t take a few moments to say one last time, thanks to Brian Mudd and Brian Fowle who have just “retired”. You lucky dogs!

In the coming months we will begin collaborating on finding folks interested in running for President, Social and Secretary. Many of you know, I will be winding down my time as President and looking forward to retirement next spring as well. At that point it will be 10 years of selfless volunteering to help lead the organization. This is one role we will want to find a superb candidate for and hope to hear some of you express interest.

Your social chair has created another full summer of events include annual favorites which we will be publishing in the newsletter. If you have ideas and are willing to put on an event, please let her know at

Well, these turkeys won’t hunt themselves so I’m going to get out my box call and go back to work!

Gobble! Gobble!


GELANDESPRUNG MEANING ge·län·de·sprung a jump, usually over an obstacle, in which one plants both poles in the snow in advance of the skis, bends close to the ground, and propels oneself chiefly by the use of the poles.
