I want to say thank you for the nominations. I love this sport and organization and it means a great deal to me that there are others that think I should be a part of the SC. If I was single, I would have accepted the nomination right away. But being that I'm not, I had to run everything by the other half. She not jumping up and down with excitement of course, because she's not into or loves (or even likes for that matter) geocaching like I do, but I do have the go ahead. So, all said, I accept the nomination and will throw my name into the hat to be a part of the SC.
Now, to me there are many individuals who would be good for this group. Of course JSlagle, BBD and GG because they have been here from the very beginning and know everything it takes to run and take care this site. So if we are going for a total of 7, that leaves 4 openings. I'm going to mentioned several because like I said, there are many who are deserving.
JHenkel: She is enthusiastic, dedicated and passionate about geocacing and NWOGEO and is a get-things-done type of person.
CheechGang: He is very experienced and has an unexhaustable amount of knowledge on many levels (or at least he makes it look that way. LOL!)
Mighty Mo: He's a level-headed guy that has gained a lot of caching experience in a short amount of time and he's just a great guy.
Yogi57: He's one of the first cachers in NWO and is a great teacher.
RustyNail: A younger guy that like me, doesn't have a lot of caches under his belt, but he is a brilliant guy and goes out of his way to help others and this organization.
OnDHunt: Come on, who doesn't like George?
DougOhio: First year cachers that are super nice and are very enthusiastic about everything geo.
Bearclaws: They have years of experience and leadership.
TeamMina: They speak their minds and put a great amount of thought into whatever the issue.
I agree with GSMOM59 that a 1 year term would be best. That way someone can step down if they no longer wish to be on the SC and other or new members can be nominated and get a chance to be on the SC. My suggestion is that maybe the election of the SC members could take place at the Holiday Shindig and the terms begin on Jan. 1. To be fair, I think for the election that only one ballot should be given to each geo-id.
Thanks again for the nominations.
