A club member since 1998, I’ve also run the club’s web site ever since I moved to Arizona, and been heavily involved with the club ever since, and have served multiple terms on the council.
Besides designing and running the web site all those years, I’ve also had the pleasure of designing Rally logos, hats, t-shirts, and stickers for the club; I’ve been lucky enough to help organize Rallies, the Gila Challenges, and the 2015 Western National Land Rover Rally. I’ve also had the priviledge to attend our club-sponsored Bill Burke Trail Leader Training along with several other club-sponsored Bill Burke events, which always teach me something and allow me to make new Land Rover friends.
As the webmaster, this last year one of the main focuses of the council has been to improve our web site in several key areas, and made the decision to transition to a completely new publishing platform. Pierre, Kelly, and I have been working behind the scenes to make this happen and are hopefully the new site, when finally launched, will offer lots of new features that members have been asking about for a while.
I miss both my D90 and Rane Rover Classic, and I currently drive a G-Wagen for my offroading adventures, but I, along with millions of others, eagerly await the ever-upcoming release of the new Defender, which is just starting to hit our shores.
It would be a priviledge to continue my role on the council.
