You make me scream! Facility Hours 6 Fish Stocking Schedule

The Road Ahead During the past 2 years, the Cloud 9 Ranch Board of Directors, and Ranch Management have made great strides in moving Cloud 9 Ranch forward. Yet, there is much more work that is needing to be done. That This is why the 2012 BOD election is so very important to all Cloud 9 Ranch members. Without a strong board in place, the goals for financial strength, improvements to the facilities, and well thought out projects cannot be accomplished. C9R board elections are based on the membership’s voice. Without your vote, the membership’s voice cannot be heard. On May 19th, following the monthly board meeting, members have the opportunity to meet with the 2012 BOD candidates at an informational forum. Running to fill the one year term, which each member will have the opportunity to cast one vote the their candidate of their choice, is Rex Tackett and Mary Ann (Mag) Greig. Running to fill the two 3-year terms are Marie Pilkington, Kurt Willbanks and Pat Riley. Each membership will have 2 votes to use in filling these two positions on the board. You are encouraged to attend and Meet the Candidates that will be representing the Cloud 9 membership. Thank You~ Kevin Willis
