 Hi Folks,

Well, this past monday night, March 3rd, we finally got to have a meeting. (Snow storms cancelled two attempts during February). It was well attended, and we accomplished quite a bit. This weekend, March 8 & 9, is the gun show at the IBEW hall in Hauppauge.  SSWA will have a table.  Stop in and say hello, and enjoy the show.

Since the April 7th meeting is our annual election, We announced a proposed slate of officers this past Monday night, (basically the current officers) and also the 4 advisors to the board (also the same as last year.)  We called for nominations from the floor, and Erik Tallbe Jr. was nominated and has accepted the nomination to run for 2nd Vice President.  We will call for nominations from the floor at the April meeting one last time before we conduct the election. To be eligible to run for a position, a candidate must have been in "good" standing for the entire 2013 calendar year.

All members in good standing are eligible to vote, but voting must be done in person, during the meeting.  Proxy votes are not permitted.    

One last reminder, our annual club dinner is on Sat. April 5th. Call Curt at 631-661-0379 if you wish to attend.
