PBS Members,

Below are the results on the recent Ballot Initiative to change specific By-Laws. There is a brief paraphrase in ( ) so you know the topics. The votes on all three measures have been counted and validated, and each has received greater than a 2/3rd majority of Yes Votes, so have passed. Thanks to all the Regular Members - and Regular Life Members who participated in the recent elections and ballot item voting!

#1 (Eliminated 50# minimum bow weight requirement for Regular Members)
235 YES
58 NO

80% or better on all three ballot initiatives.

That my friends is overwhelming support.

I do have to question why anybody would vote no on #3?

I would think that is absolutely a no brainer. Regardless of what the time frame is, having officer elections and ballot initiatives be on the same schedule just makes sense. I guess some people will vote against change regardless.

Thanks for all the hard work that went into these initiatives.
