This is a picture of our club president, the esteemed Walter Van Zant . He is the primary contributor to the quarterly newsletter – most of the sarcasm for instance. Walt used to be a pretty fair runner, but that was quite some time ago. We affectionately refer to him as “our leader”, “the dictator”, “president-for-life”, and some other things best left off this page….
Club President, Walt
…our treasurer is Norry McAllister.
