2008 State Awards Banquet
On January 19th, 2008, the Ohio State chapter of the NWTF held it's annual awards banquet. This is were the Ohio State chapter recognizes it's 92 chapters for their previous year's efforts. For the last four years, I am proud to say, that the Y-Bridge Longbeards has walked away with some kind of award. This year was no exception. Our chapter won ribbons for the following criteria: signing up 100 plus JAKES members at our banquet, 20 plus Woman In The Outdoors at our banquet and 100 plus members at our banquet. These accomplishment could not have been achieved without the dedication of the chapter committee. Local Zanesville Resident, Joe Mattingly received the Al Fabian, Oustanding Landowner award and Bob Lowendick won the Oudoor Writer of the Year award.
