The 2022 Election of Officers, Calendar Raffle & Walleye Updates

ELECTIONS


At last night’s Club Meeting we held the annual Election of Officers/Board.

  • We have a new OSFC President, Chris Anderson! Chris is always one of the hardest workers in the room and has been a key player with our summer Walleye Tourney. He’s also an absolute rockstar with our sponsors.
  • We welcome a new Vice President as well: Bob Hable, one of our key Ice Guys putting in hundreds of hours a year there and he also spearheads many of our raffles.

Please welcome them to their new post!

We also want to thank past OSFC President, Jim Erdman for his years of leadership and the growth-mindset he’s brought to the Club. Jim will continue to serve on our Board of Directors, and be a huge asset to OSFC, especially as we head into our Walleye Tourney season. And, a big appreciation goes out to our previous VP, Donnie Herman as well. Donnie, as you know, will continue to be a massive part of our ice operations among many other things, and we’re thrilled to say that he will also continue to serve on the Board!

Also up for re-election this year: Bill Brehmer and Scott Engel. Both were re-elected to the Board and remain huge parts of the good work we do in the community. We are grateful to our entire Board for their relentless work in the name of conservation, community growth and improvement to the Winnebago system. If you see them, please thank them. Our Board is 100% volunteer and do this because they truly care! Your 2022 OSFC Board is listed here.
