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.

OSFC Flight Times

Anglers, volunteers and participants – please remember the following changes will be implemented to adhere to best practice guidelines put forth by our Tournament Directors, the City of Oshkosh officials, Chief of Oshkosh Police and Chief of Oshkosh Fire Dept. We are looking forward to holding a fun, memorable and most importantly SAFE event for all participants, volunteers and spectators.

  • We will hold 2 rules meetings instead of one (at 3pm and 6pm) and we recommend only one team member attend — Rules meeting is down at the park where you register.
  • We have stretched out registration time from noon to 6pm instead of 2pm -6pm as originally planned
  • We extended return flight times
  • We will not be selling alcohol; we do not want to encourage any groups of people gathering in confined areas
  • We will be serving food that is pre-packaged only (subs)
  • We will be doing many live-streams so you can still partake in the excitement of the tournament without you needing to physically be at the park spectating.
  • We will have hand sanitizer at the event and be strongly recommending all social distancing guidelines

Lastly – thank you so much to all of our generous sponsors, hard working volunteers, and loyal anglers….we couldn’t hold this event without your support!
