I think you articulated what others have been trying to do for so
many parts of this thread ..... Great Harry.
I think of the 10 year commitment of Ken Lazara to
KMI4 with no financial rewards.
The commitment of Brian waters et al to Wilderkamps Volumes.
The donation of intellectual property by oh so many people
without a thought.
Photographs, slides, articles, Chairmanships of groups
that become almost full time jobs.
Editorial commitments to JAKA, indexes, booklets,
Beginner's guide, Video library, and Oh so much more.
The National groups keeps a national perspective on producing
materials that would be beyond a local group.
There is nothing like the AKA ... still, and I am so glad
we are committed to the founding principles of this
organization....... It's all about sharing experiences and fish.......
at a level comparable nowhere else.
Thanks for reminding us what is really important and what
killie people are all about.
