At that time the board had established two new committees to work with VDGIF. The first was the Preservation Committee. Its charter then as it is now was to work with VDGIF to establish a joint management plan for the lake. The second committee was the field operations committee. Its charter was to find and establish 15 new stocking locations around the lake. This was my first challenge with the club. Six of us volunteered and I was appointed as chairman.
After serving as chairman of the Field Operation Committee for one year the board asked me to serve as chairman of the Preservation Committee and at the same time I joined the board as 1st Vice President. I served as 1st Vice President until 2005. In 2006 I took over as President and served in that capacity until 2008. After 10 years I decided it was time to stop managing and fish.
Unfortunately, I still have to work for a living, so when I am not hunting or fishing I am either working or thinking about fishing and hunting.
