Re: RGS South Mountain Chapter

I like some of the thing you said here..

But please tell me something here..

where and what habitat Project have they done?? if your talking about the 1-2 acres that RGS talked about Habitat sites. That's more like RGS press to me. there just saying hey look what we did.. but really what did they do?? the 1-2 acres dont cut it.. not for good grouse habitat.

I have been a memeber for 7's years now. and from what i can see. someone is doing something with the money. since its not going back into grouse/woodcock habitat.
There are 7's large timber Co here in the Northcentral and the northwest Reg. and RGS wouldn't even give them a dinner ticket.. Come on.. they do more for grouse habitat in one week then RGS could do in a year.. that to me makes no since.
they really need to get with the program...

Re: RGS South Mountain Chapter

Chris,

Maybe you should get your RD on it. Have her throw them a ticket.

I think their biggest contribution is beating back the tree hugger and making sure the trees keep dropping. The little projects are nice, but makeing sure large scale timbering continues is the key. Having people in the eyes of those legislative members is critical.

I am sure PF has the same type people pushing for CREP.

Re: RGS South Mountain Chapter

We tryed to get the RD to give them a ticket.. and NO.. RGS doesn't do that...

RGS, doesn't even have anyone on the PFSC board. they dont believe in what PFSC does. Thats wrong. They really need to get with it.

AS for PF. WE have someone In DC all the time. Thats his full time job. Just like DU and 7's other ones.

PF has a PA state Council. Does RGS. NO. (why is that)??

And this isnt about what PF does. They Both do thing Totatly different.

My point here is. RGS, say's they do all this habtiat work. But where do they do it at?? and they make it sound like they do 1000's of acres. but really what are they doing with all they money??

Re: RGS South Mountain Chapter

I just wish RGS would allow me to go to this banquet, but, they only sell tickets, at $90 per couple, which includes a membership.

I don't want a membership, just want to go and bid on their items as a way of donating.

This is not the fault of the chapters, but the fault of the main office.

I applaud what S. Mountain chapter is trying to do, but just feel their efforts are held back by RGS national.

As far as I'm concerned, national is a bunch of idiots for not pricing their banquets so just regular folks can attend. They lose money due to their ignorance.

My brother is a member of the PA Trappers. They price their banquets at the price of the meal and a little more.They encourage more people to attend that way, thus getting more bidders for their donated items and end up making more money.

Wish RGS would wake up.

Re: RGS South Mountain Chapter

I agree.

I also don't want anyone thinking I'm coming down on the grassroots RGS members. I'm not. My brother is involved with the South Mountain Chapter and helps with their banquet.

My beef is with RGS National.

You can put on a dress and come as Kevin's wife


I dont think you need to be a member to attend the Woodcock Limited banquet in March.

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.

Dutch, The next RGS South Mountain meeting is at my house on the 17th. I will bring this up. I know of a couple other people who would like to come but dont want to join. However they will spend there money and purchase something. I would rather have you there to possibly get some of your money then none at all. Hopefully we can get it changed so you can attend.

Jeff, I think people might notice my adams apple? LOL

I have helped with each WL habitat project they have had so far, but am not a member. I like getting my fingernails dirty, and WL allows me to do that. Mike Kotay will verify that. He has the pics of me in apple trees when the "old" guys stayed on the ground. LOL
