LETTER FROM THE PREZ  MIKE MONLEZUN

Hello all,
Wow! A lot is going on right now. Of course, the Rodman Dam field trip will already be over by the time you get this. I hope many of you were able to make it.
Have all of you been following the forums on kingsnake.com? The FWS raided a few shows in the midwest. This should serve as a wake up call to everyone that Big Brother is watching us, even when we don’t think they are. I can’t make everyone comply with the law (even if I don’t agree with all of them), but you need to be aware of them and then make the decisions to do the things you do. This applies even more to those who are engaging in this hobby as a business. Hopefully things remain calm at the NRBE, but how will they resist the grandaddy of all expos?
Tonca’s birthday, in conjunction with our MVP had a GREAT turnout. Thanks to all who attended. We tried unsuccessfully to get Vic on the news to talk about his involvement with the TSA. He also had the Times-Union visit his facility for an article. Vic, Can I have your autograph?
Tis the season for babies. I hope everyone has had a successful breeding season. I have already seen several member’s youngsters.
I have added a new column for the newsletter. Board Meeting Minutes should keep you abreast of what we are doing and planning.
See you on the 6th.

~Mike
