A Message from the President Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend

Hello WGA!

As I sit at my desk, glancing at the snow flakes floating down, I'm reminiscing about the first 2 WGA Events that were held in February at the Visitors Center in Horicon. Two different Events, planned by different members, supported by the WGA. This is the strength of the organization...our volunteers! It takes many hours of planning to pull off a successful Event, and our membership has a great deal of diversity in the many talents needed to plan these gatherings. WELL DONE!

Your new Board of Directors met on Sunday the 25th of February for 5 hours of WGA business. This is our required BOD meeting according to the WGA By-laws. We assigned our Committee heads and the roster is open for team mates to plan another year of development of this young organization. Please let us know if you would like to serve on any of the committees!

Soon there will be the smell of spring flowers and rotting winter trash! That means it's CITO TIME!! Watch the Events list for WGA sponsored and locally sponsored CITO Events near you. This is our way of "giving back" to the state of Wisconsin!

This is also the 10th anniversary of the WGA, so the Board has decided to "go retro"! The WGA Campout will be held at the same place the first Campout was held...Governor Dodge State Park. The Fall Picnic will be held at Pike Lake State Park, the starting point for the first picnic in '02. Watch for some very special things to happen at these Events!

Lastly, it was never my goal to serve as the President of the WGA, but it was my goal to give back to the organization that has provided many opportunities over the last 4 years to explore the secret and magical places that this great state has to offer. I thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President. Just as you should leave a cache better than you found it, I hope I receive a passing grade from the members during my term on the BOD

Jim Bliefnick

WGA President

2012 WGA Board of Directors Voting is Open More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend

Voting in the the 2012 WGA Board of Directors election has begun! To vote Click here.

WGA members may vote for up to 6 of the candidates before voting closes on Monday, February 13th at 11:59pm. Here are some general notes about this phase of the Board of Directors election process.

  •  Since there are 6 open Board positions, members may vote for up to 6 of the candidates.
  •  If you try to vote for more than 6 candidates, all your votes will be thrown out and you'll be given a chance to vote again.
  • Once you vote, you cannot vote again. Therefore, if you vote for fewer than 6 candidates, you can't come back and vote for more. Also, you can't change your votes (so get them right the first time!).
  • Voting will end at precisely 11:59pm on Monday, February 13, 2012.

The 6 candidates with the highest vote totals at the end of voting will fill the open Board positions. If you have any general questions about this phase of the election process, feel free to post them in the Candidates Corner 2012 forum. If you experience technical problems with the voting system or trouble with your WGA member account, you can contact Brian (Team Black-Cat).

The two election monitors this year are Barry Butrymowicz and Dave Secondino. At the end of the election they need to tally the votes and "certify" the election. Because of this, the official results may not be announced for a day or two after voting closes.

  • To serve on the Board, individuals must be WGA members and meet other eligibility requirements (including being at least 21 years of age) outlined in the WGA bylaws.

The winners have been determined in the 2011 WGA Campout photo contest. With sixty photos entered, the top two vote getters (a tie) are #2 (view across Allen Lake) by Frizz


and #60 (Chucky and winning fish) by Gram&Gramps.

Each winning photographer will receive a 2010 WGA geocoin. With all of the great photos submitted, the WGA will be using many of them on this web site to promote events and other fun activities that WGA members can take part in.

Thank you to everyone who submitted photos and who voted for their favorites. Keep an eye out for more photo contests at future events and maybe some “just because”.
