2013: Nominations for a board member, we have one vacancy. It has been vacant since October 2012 with little to no interest from the membership to fill it. It was the board's decision at the last board meeting that we will not fill this position at this time due to memberhsip body size and the number of board members. We chose this as the best option. If someone would like to fill the position feel free to attend the board meeting or let us know at the monthly meeting.

The first meeting took place on Saturday, November 12th, 2011, the location being the LDS Church, located on the north east corner of Elk Grove - Florin Road and Vintage Park Drive. The next meeting was held on Saturday, December 10th. A subsequent meeting was held on January 14th. The Bylaws were voted on, and the Board was given authority by those in attendance to choose officers. On Saturday, February 11th, 2012, the Board members presented their positions and were voted in by attending members.
Since then we have been growing and turnout has been great. We have a lot of information to teach and share. Field Day this year was great and we look forward to next year. If you are just checking us out we invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings. We welcome anyone, even if you don’t have a license yet. There are plenty of people willing to help you learn and you could possibly find an Elmer.
