    a VERY important annoucement

    drum roll, please..

    Our dear friend/advisor/contributor JP Ranch (also known as Jim Brown from Gillette Wyoming), is throwing his hat into the ring for ICC director. He's seeking the position being vacated by John Darnell in Region 2.

    It's an "at large " position; the membership vote to be held in Phoenix in October/November. The agenda hasn't been published, but plan your attendance in advance to support Jim.

    While it may be surprising to most of you that Jim is doing this, it's really important to have a director with "mud on his boots" to represent us on the ICC board.

    Personally, I know Jim and I absolutely throw my support to his elevation to this position.

    Vote early... vote often.. I will be there in Phoenix.. if I can to support him.

    Post a banner.. and spread the word.

    GO JIM

    thrilled he asked me to break the news; if you all were like I was.. it was like keeping the best secret ever.. (like knowing what the royal wedding dress was 10 weeks ago); hard to keep my mouth shut/fingers silent!

    Support Jim!

    I know what you're saying peach, after talking to him last week, it was like, "OK Jim, bust it out!"

    It will be great to have one of our folks on the inside!

    I guess I was not too far off in my prediction in another thread a while back when the exploratory teaser was put out :D

    Thanks ladies & gent's. That legal / managemant mod was a pretty tough exam. I actually found the tech mod not as bad. I will make running for the board "official" late next week when I turn in the proper paperwork. Again I thank all of you for the kind words and support.

    I hope he is a PIA to them like he has been to us!!! Just kidding!

    Jim, as soon as you get that info we talked about pass it on and I'll do my best to get the two organizations I'm a member of to write a letter of support.

    Good luck!

    Mule, LOL! Always have been a PIA and will always be one. Just ask my beloved wife of 29 years!

    networking is a great way to get the message out; when people know who you are, that's 75% of the battle.
