Running for office of President

Andy Coster Andy Coster

I am running for the office of President of the GHSC. I am a life member and have been a active member for eighteen years. I have served as a board member on two occasions. I also have served as a Range Master and RO on the shot gun range and have been active as a shot gun instructor for ten years. I enjoy shooting all venues to include sporting clays, PITA events ,long rifles and pistol shooting.  I retired from Alaska Airlines in 2013. My flying background includes five years in the US Army as a Pilot with tours in RVN.

 

The club is going through many changes to include a road going through the club.  The club will be in the process of repairing the shot curtain this fall and up grades to the rifle and pistol range. I feel I can bring fresh leadership to the club and open the line of Communications with the Membership. The board meetings need to be open to all members with no closed sessions.

 

 

I am asking for your vote on August 17, 2017 at the annual meeting.

Le Rodenberg

Le Rodenberg

My name is Le Rodenberg.  My wife Jeannie and I are Life Members of the Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club and longtime Gig Harbor residents.  I am retired after a 50 year career in the composites industry.  During my career I served on several industry boards including 24 years on the Board of Directors of the Society of the Plastics Industry (2 years as Chairman), the board of the Composites Institute (4 years as Chairman), the board of the Fiberglass Fabricators Association (2 years as Chairman), and the board of the Composites Fabricators Association (2 years as Chairman).  I have been a successful business owner, and have held senior executive positions at two Fortune 250 companies.  I have hunted since I was a child and shoot all venues here at the club.  I am a competitive PITA Shooter (former State Champion).  I served as a board member and a two term President of the Washington State Pacific International Trap Association (WS PITA).

 

Prior to our current President, I had been the Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club President for three terms, with my last term being unanimously voted on  by the Board of Directors allowing me to run for a third term as required by GHSC by-laws.  I currently serve on the GHSC Board of Directors as Immediate Past President, Investment Committee Chairman, the Club’s City of Gig Harbor liaison and the Harbor Hill Drive Extension Project Chairman.

 

I know, and have been told by many, that since I first became club president we substantially improved our critically important relationship with the City of Gig Harbor, moving from one of a confrontational relationship with law suits against each other and secret meetings to one of high ethics, honesty, trust, and mutual respect while becoming a true community asset.  This ongoing excellent relationship is critically important to the success and future of our club.

 

With the help of a supportive Board of Directors and great volunteers this club has completed many, many successful projects during my tenure as President.  A person needs only to look around the club grounds and in our financial accounts to appreciate the many positive changes that have been made at the club.

 

The ongoing success of this club depends on volunteers, a proactive board of directors and the proven leadership of an experienced manager.  I stand on my record of helping to bring this club into the most financially stable position it has ever been in while protecting our assets and keeping an eye on our future needs.

 

I am asking for your vote to ensure the Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club’s continued success.

Terry Holm

To the Gig Harbor Sportsmen's Club members and Board of Directors:

 

My name is Terry Holm.  I would like to continue in the Vice President position.

 

I have previously served as a board member and as your Vice President over the last two years. I have a good understanding of the GHSC issues and goals for future success. I share your love of the shooting sports, our freedoms, and the clubs significance in the community.

 

I come from a military and law enforcement family and I am retiring as a Navy civilian manager after 40 plus years.  I understand the meaning of honor, integrity, and responsibility and I know I have previous executive management skills and a determination to enhance the activities of our club in a positive way.

 

I am currently a rifle/pistol range master with NRA Range Safety Officer and Pistol instructor’s certifications. I am a rifle/pistol orientation administrator and running the handgun safety classes program at Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club. I continue to participate in many club events and many Range Officer/Range Master tours each year.

 

I don’t know everyone at the club but stop me if you want to talk and we can get acquainted.  For those that do know me thank you for enriching my life and please share your knowledge of me with others. I hope that this short statement will provide a glimpse of my character and personality but be sure of one thing; I can and will serve with the Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club best interests in mind.

 

I am looking forward to continuing my service to the membership as your Vice President and would appreciate your vote.

 

Thank you, Terry Holm

 

Running for the office of Secretary

Rob Joanis (Incumbent) Rob Joanis

Hello Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club, my name is Robert Joanis and I am running for Secretary.

 

I joined the GHSC in June 2016 on a family membership with my wife and two younger daughters, and have been serving as Secretary since January. While I have not been a member of the club long, I have lived in the community for 20+ years. As an avid sportsman I believe that our club is needed now, more than ever, in this time of urban expansion. In talking with many of you over the last few months, I have received quite the warm welcome and would like to continue to serve in this position. Your vote will allow me to do so and would be gratefully appreciated.

 

Thank you very much.

 

Running for the office of Recording Secretary

Running for Board position

Chuck Griffey (Incumbent)

Chuck Griffey

My name is Chuck Griffey, and I would like to continue my service to the GHSC as a board member.

 

For those of you that don’t know me, I grew up in a hunting and fishing family, and from my earliest memories was involved in shooting sports.  I held a Federal Firearms License during my years in Alaska and currently serve as a Range Office/Master at the rifle pistol range.  I also shoot trap on most Thursday evenings.

 

I look forward to discussing the important issues facing our Club with you.  If you see me around the Club, do not hesitate to introduce yourself and your concerns.

 

Your vote to allow me to continue on the GHSC Board of Directors would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you.


Gordon Hauschild

Gordon Hauschild

My name is Gordon Hauschild, and I am asking you to consider me for the position on the Board that Doug McLean is leaving. I have been a member of the club for only a few years, and started out shooting only on the rifle and pistol ranges. This was familiar to me, being a Marine Corps veteran and competitive shooter. But a couple of years ago, I thought I’d give trap a real try. With the help of several friendly and generous trap veterans (Pete, Scott, Madison), I found that I really liked the challenge of the shotgun side.

 

Last year I took the Range Officer class, and that gives me another excuse to be at the range on the weekends. I’ve met a lot of the other members and found them to be helpful, friendly and just good people. I’d like to help the club continue to be a place where shooting sports and friendships come together, and members and guests can enjoy a safe, first-class facility. With all of the changes happening at the club, and the growth of the Gig Harbor community, the challenges involved in coexisting with a community that may or may not understand our sport will continue and increase. Most of all, though, my focus will be on serving the membership, and improving the things that are important to you so that every member participates more in our activities.

 

Thank you for your consideration.
