What's happening in GIRS

Another successful year is wrapping up.

GIRS member of the year nominations. Every year GIRS recognizes one of its club members who have provided outstanding service to the club. The BOD would like some input from members on who they feel should be in the running for the Member of the Year. This thread has the information on how to make a nomination. 

GIRS makes $500 donation to the PIJAC aquatic defense fund. GIRS is proud to provide support in the efforts to defend our hobby against actions that could potentially threaten the future of this great hobby. With a 100% donation match provided by MASNA that equates to $1000 donation directly to the cause. 

New Trustees for the Quad Cities Region. Please join us in welcoming our newest Trustee and Assistant Trustee for the Quad Cities Region. They are eager to get some great activities planned for the regions members. Keep an eye on the Regional forums for the latest on what’s happening around the area.
