Hi Everyone! I've been on a hiatus for a bit (Denali, then moved to Switzerland, then my son was born in September), but I'm back. Sorry I missed the east coast gathering, but I'm happy to host one here in Switzerland.
Regarding the Highpointer's Klub - I'm one of the officers, recently elected. I missed the last Kon because I was on Denali, but I'm planning to be at Maine. There's a lot of things that I'm trying to do with the club but as someone pointed out: everything is on a volunteer basis. If I don't have the time (new baby) then the things I want to make happen don't happen. Website updates, for example, would be welcome, but we are a small club, and not exactly rolling in funds. If we don't have a motivated volunteer to help make updates, then those might not happen for a while.
Our two big things - the newsletter and the Kons - are pretty well put together. We have energetic and talented people helping to make those things come together. Could things be improved, sure. Would we need help to improve them, absolutely. If anyone wants to give me feedback by pm instead of in a public forum, please do! I'll be happy to bring up ideas, thoughts, etc to the rest of the board and see what can be done.
