    There is a link to the NSPS Joint Committee on Government Affairs in the Library.  You will need to be logged in to access the link.  

    The report contains all the items NSPS is working on on your behalf.  It is very interesting.

    Photo Contest

    It is that time of year again that WSLS holds its Annual Contests.  This year the Photo contest is back.  Last year the number of entries was down a little.  I am sure you have had your phones with you this year and have taken a bunch of pictures.   With the Institute being in person at the Kalahari, the members will be voting on the photos there.  The details are in the Members Area here: Annual Photo Contest  

    Map / Plat contest

    Don't forget to enter your maps in the  long  standing WSLS Map / Plat contest.   As with the Photo contest, the maps will be posted on the walls in the Exhibit Hall at the Institute.  The entry forms are in the Members Area  here: Annual Map / Plat Contest

    Now for a number of years the two Chapters have held a joint meeting.  They usually try to find a location that was easy to get to by members of both Chapters.  This year the meeting was at Brigham County Park which is right next to Blue Mounds State Park but without the stickers.  President Harvey addressed the group.  The members were happy to be meeting in person in a great location.  The Southwest Chapter provided the shelter and Madison brought the food.  MASC President Bob O'Neill did the cooking.  Both Chapters had brief business meetings.  And mother nature provided the sunset.
