    Everyone should be a member!

    Post  HOLLABACK on Wed Feb 06, 2013 5:52 am

    Here I go again......As i look at the bottom of this sites screen I see 285 reg users that freqent this site on a pretty steady basis......I'm sure that 285 folks have a interest in hounds or would'nt be checking this site out.....Now I know that some are out of staters that feel they better support their own state organizations first and respect that fully.....But to everyone that lives here,hunts here,visits here,runs dogs here,or has any interest in hounds or any sport dealing with dogs in Maine should listen up!
    The MSDA (Maine Sporting Dog Assn.) has roughly 100+ members.....Where is the rest of you? I feel like a broken record when I need to get on this site and beg you to step up and support your sport and join a club that supports you? You should really already be a member without me asking you to be.....I cant stress the importance enough......I hate to get a list of all members and post,so everyone can see who is'nt supporting us because that would be embarassing to some,but this is very important to me as I take my sport serious so if it comes to it so be it...Now,From what I see is that if your not supporting the sport,you obiviously dont have our best interest at heart and consider you the other side......As raw as you wanna take that so be it.....It's 20 dollars not a blood sample......Please step up and join......Feel free to call for any info. If you need any assistance to join feel free to post here or pm and we'll help ya out.....

We will have shirts at our Feb. 17th meeting! Hope to see you there, I can re-new your membership at that time if you are able to make it...PM me if you have any other questions!

    I dont want to create any work for any body but if there was a list of members every one could see we all could help convince some people how important it is to be a member of the MSDA? Some times all it takes is a little friendly nudge to push them in the right direction .this is just my option .
