RC Update – July 2019

Greetings Region 3,  First, welcome to summer. We’ve faced down a hurricane this past week, and triple digit temperatures are already they norm throughout much of the region. Keep an eye on each other out there. SFI is a family, dysfunctional as we might be. If you haven’t heard from someone in while, reach out!  […]

RC Update – June 2019

Greetings Region 3,  I hope everyone had a great time at Summit in Baton Rouge, I know I did. This had to be the least stress (for me anyway) of any summit I’ve yet been involved with. Maybe it was the nice Louisianan atmosphere, or the fact the hotel bar made pretty great drinks.  Beyond having […]

RC Update – May 2019

Greetings Region 3, Summit is fast approaching! We have over 35 people signed up to attend – are you one of them? You should be! I think we can do over 40! The USS Corsair and friends have a lot planned for us – and Now I am happy to announce we have ordered a summit […]

RC Update – April 2019

Greetings Region 3,  We have summit fast approaching. Awards nominations are in, and the committee will meet next week. So far we have 24 registered for summit! I know more will come – and it should be a great time hanging out with everyone in Baton Rouge. I even heard talk about a pub crawl?!  […]

RC Update – March 2019

Greetings Region 3! The RC Election is underway – that’s pretty important to the local regional members. To facilitate that we have stood up a new list (http://lists.region3.org/mailman/listinfo/rcelection_region3.org) – please sign up (Region 3 members only), all our discussions will happen there. As it is just the nomination phase right now, we’ll wait until folks […]

RC Update – February

Greetings Region 3! Award season is now upon us! February 15 – 31 March are when you can nominate, both for Region 3 specific awards, and the annual awards program. As I stated in my last update, Region 3 did some amazing things last year – but Region 3 isn’t a body. It’s made up […]

RC Update – January

Welcome to 2019!   I’d like to start with looking back at 2018 for just a few minutes, because it’s really, really impressive what we’ve accomplished. Chapters and members raised over $8262.05 for various charities in 2018. Add the $4k that members raised, from their own pockets, at summit, and Region 3 contributed over $12,262.05! […]

RC Update – December

Greetings Region 3,   As we close out 2018, I want to thank my staff for all the amazing work they have done over the past year. Short turn around on Summit (way to go Diamondback!), awards, and other objectives, to include a big push here at the end to get the 2017 and 2018 […]

RC Update – November 2018

Greetings Region 3! It’s mid-November already! Time flies – and more so around the holidays here. Last night R3 staff and I met for our monthly meeting, and worked to wrap up most region business for 2018. There will not be a staff meeting in December, everyone is busy enough – but we are well postured […]

RC Update – October 2018

Greetings Region 3! Back in late September, I had the good fortune to once more attend FenCon, in Irving, TX. This is, bar none, my favorite convention – and one that really ‘recharges’ me each year. I did not go as any part of SFI, actually I was supporting a different fan group that I […]
