President's Letter


Where did summer go? I hope everyone enjoyed their summer break and was able to enjoy a little down time. As we wind down summer and school begins, there is one thing that I look forward to every year during this time and that’s waking up every Saturday Morning with a cup of coffee and watching Kirk Herbstreit and gang talk College Football! I wasn’t going to say it but, why not..BOOMER

If you missed it, on August 2nd we had a very special guest speaker, Mr. David Ramsden-Wood, founder of #hottakeoftheday give a presentation on “The Truth About Energy”. It was a very entertaining and informative presentation. I would like to thank Mr. Ramsden-Wood for taking the time to present to our organization. I would also like to thank Chris Remmert (Monday Night Speaker Chair) for organizing such a wonderful event. If you wish to watch the presentation, you can find a link on OCAPL’s website under Events.

Earlier this month we were going to have a Webinar Series on August 2nd, 2021. With Meredith Wegener, OCU on “The Ethics of Corporate Carbon Neutrality” but we have since moved this event to October. So please keep an eye out for more information about this event. If you are interested in sponsoring one of our Webinar Events and would like more details, please send an email to OCAPL at

OCAPLS’s annual Sporting Clays Tournament will be held on, August 27th, 2021 at Silverleaf Shotgun Sports in Guthrie. This year’s event should be a great opportunity for networking and good food. Shannon Reed and his team put together a top-notch event. I look forward to seeing you out there.

We have some awesome events coming up, such as the Fun Run & Fall Festival. This event has become an annual family favorite for members of OCAPL and is intended to be enjoyed by all age groups. In addition to the race itself, we will have family friendly activities for all ages, including food trucks, a beer truck, face painting, a bounce house and more. If you have not had the opportunity to attend this event in the past, I highly recommend that you attend this year! The Fun Run & Fall Festival Committee have worked hard putting this event together and it should be an awesome event.

Are you in need of Educational Credits? Keep in mind that OCAPL works hard in conjunction with AAPL to help provide those Educational Credits that we all need. In particular the following events are all great ways to acquire credits: Weekend Takeoff, Spring and Fall Field Landman Seminars, Educational Luncheons/Webinars and Evening Events. Please take advantage of these opportunities
