I thought Ed Grys was representing our region? Is he not going to do it again?

I haven't spoken Ed, but whether he is running again or not, if someone thinks they can do a good job they should run for the office.

Well, it's an unpaid volunteer position (as much as my wishful thinking would like to get paid to fly kites). I think you should send an email to the address mike listed and maybe also check the kite.org web site. They might have something there. Are you an AKA member?
