another edition of
the Tarnished Truth.
reading this, chances are you already know that the election process
for the next WINS board membership is currently underway. As I had
mentioned in the last newsletter, I will not be running for Newsletter
Editor for the upcoming term. I hope someone considers stepping forward
and filling in the gap! Personally, I have found it quite a bit of fun,
but my current situation just doesn’t leave enough spare time to do the
A quick glance
on the WINS forum of the CoinTalk message board shows that, so far, we
have accepted nominations for the positions of President,
Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Operations Administrator, and
Librarian. Still, most of these positions are uncontested, so there’s
plenty of room for anyone thinking about running for office. Per the
election schedule, nominations will continue until early December, is
if you haven’t given the idea some thought, there’s still time.
I’d just like
to say that following the last term election I remember a specific
comment on the list which concerned disappointment that many positions
were races involving a single horse. Like many other members, I would
like to see a lot of names filling the ballot, but it can only happen
if more members step forward to serve. This really is such a fantastic
organization, and I can honestly say that I have never regretted a
single minute that it’s taken from my spare time. Oftentimes, I just
wish it could have been more.
If you have any
questions on the election process or schedule, please see last issue’s

Christmas Auction is right around the corner – so hard to believe that
it’s that time already. Our last auction saw some pretty strong
activity. The Christmas Auction has always been the biggest and most
active auction of the year. So if you have anything you’re thinking of
putting up for bid, now is the best time to do it!
I’d also like to remind everyone that the auction is our single best
fund raiser for the club treasury, so while you’re finding things to
list, please consider donating an item or two.
Personally, I’m excited to see what comes up for bid!
I guess that's
all for me. As always, I hope you enjoy this edition of the
