The period for submitting election ballots is over and the counts have been tallied, re-tallied, and validated in accord with our By-Laws (Results below). I was re-elected to be your President for the next 2 years. Since Cory Mattson had to leave his 3 Year position to take on duties as Vice President, the Nomination Committee deliberated and nominated Norm Johnson to replace him (notice the recent close election for VP). Norm will fulfill the remaining 2 years left on Cory's term. Council then voted unanimously to approve Norm for this position. The incoming 3 Year position was an incredibly close race between Matt Schuster and Terry Receveur - with only a 2 vote separation! Matt will start his 3 year position March 1st, along with the rest of the new PBS Council. Please join me in thanking everyone who ran for office in this recent election - win or lose, they all deserve a pat on the back for offering to step up!

Ballot initiative results will be posted at the end of this week, once validated.

Congratulations to the winning candidates. Even though I'm as Ricky Bobby would say "the first loser", I still feel like a winner with a Council like ours!

That's as close of an election in a couple of the races as I ever remember and a credit to the quality of the slate of candidates. I wish you all the best of luck in facing the upcoming challenges.

Congratulation to the winners, and thanks for stepping up to those who did not win...and Norm....you won in spite of the fact you lost. PBS is in very good hands.

I feel that we had a very good and close election. I also feel that all the candidates that ran, would have done an excellent job if elected. That's what's so great about the PBS, so many stepped up and were willing to take a responsibility.
Congrats to all that won, and thank you to all that ran. Good Job, and well done!

This was a great slate of candidates, and I wish we had all of them holding down a chair at the council table. We are all winners. Thanks guys.


Special tribute to Terry Receveur:

Thank you to all the members who took the time to vote. Thank you to all who supported me. Cory is a good man and will do a fine job as VP. Thank you Terry R. and John V. for stepping up to run.
With my busy schedule and recent changes with regard to Blacktail Bows I had to do a lot of soul searching to say "Yes" to another commitment to the PBS council in any capacity. In the end it is you guys, the great people that make up this fraternity that really make the decision for me. I am very humbled to be ask.
As many of you know I am not active on the PBS web site or any other site for that matter. According to my kids I am the last man standing on the planet without a Facebook page. Moving forward I will become more active here.
My term begins March 1st if anyone needs to reach me by phone or email I am always available. Any complaints can be sent to Kevin Bahr. :lol:
I would like to give a "BIG" thanks to Steve H. for his time served. Job well done, thank you Steve!
All the best,
Norm

I'm a bit late to the party. But, I too, would like to offer a heartfelt THANK YOU to ALL of the candidates and to ALL who serve (and have served) PBS. You are very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Doug and Norm--don't worry, you couldn't pay me to have a FaceBook page. This is plenty for me.

OK, here's the process...

The last ballots were counted on Feb 6th for the 3 Proposed By-Law Amendments.

Past President - Council at Large then validates the results provided him by Home Office (certified mail).

He emails me (as current President) his validated count and then I get the word out to the membership via the website and the Magazine.

I will post the actual numbers right when I hear from Bob -- as a separate posting: AMENDMENT VOTE RESULTS.

The preliminary results are that each of the 3 By-Law amendments DID receive a 2/3rds majority of YES votes to pass -- actual (exact numbers) will follow soon under the posting title mentioned above.

It's good to see that we are finally able to make some changes that the membership wants and which will benefit our organization.
