Note from the President
The nomination phase for the emergency election of new members of the ASA Board has come to an end, with two candidates for two open spots. This means no vote is required, as the two nominees automatically get elected.
I am thrilled to announce that Gregg Deinhart from Virginia and Peter Vahle from California are the new ASA Members of the Board, joining Andrew Zunino (PA), Craig Cousino (NC) and myself (FL).
While US Subbuteo legend Gregg Deinhart needs no introduction (but his coming back as active and engaged player is certainly a wonderful sign our association is on the right path), I would like to welcome Peter to his first official role within the American Subbuteo Association. A long-time Subbuteo player and a University Professor, he’s been instrumental in the development of the game in the northern California region. I look forward to working with both of them, as well as to continuing leveraging the established strong partnership with Andrew and Craig.
I will wrap up with special thanks to the many members who expressed their interest in running for the role during the past couple of weeks, only to decide it was better for the association to endorse two candidates vs. going through the voting phase. This is yet another indication ASA is alive and kicking and we are ready to do great things together, no matter the official role we may have.
Thanks everyone! Flick on with passion. Always!
President, American Subbuteo Association
