Greg Schwerman
Razorback Base
I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party
for another term as your Base Commander. Well! I know that’s a
little bit dramatic, but it’s just a reminder that base elections are
coming up this year and It’s time to start thinking about running for
office. Several years ago, the base changed the bylaws to only
require elections for Base Commander and Vice Commander. All
other positions are appointed by the Commander. The base
officers are COB, Treasurer, Yeomen, Holland Club Chairman,
Membership Chairman, Newsletter Editor, and POC. The base
Executive Committee is composed of all base officers and past
Base Commanders. We have been looking for someone to take
over and assume the duties of Membership Chairman, and I’m
happy to announce that Johnnie Baker has agreed to accept the
position, and hopefully will assume the duties as soon we can get
together and do a turnover. Thank You Mr. Baker!!! We have
gained several new members over the past few years, and we still
have a good number of active regular members that would make
ideal Base Officers. Think about it, I’m sure we can find a spot for
you. And don’t forget that National elections are also coming up
this November, it’s time to start doing your research.
Our next base event/meeting is the annual base campout at Lake
Dardanelle State park in Russellville on 21, 22, and 23 June. Sam
Cecil has again volunteered to barbeque the meat for Saturday
and Sunday, and we will grill hamburgers on Friday after we get
the pavilion set up. If your planning on attending the picnic, please
bring a dish or dissert to go along with the BBQ.
