By the way, I've never heard of Matt Henzi before, so I have no idea whether he's better or even worse than Mark Forbes. But even if he's ten times as bad as Forbes, he won't have the stranglehold that Forbes has held over USHPA.

I am also wondering if Forbes will be given one of the "At Large" positions to keep him in power. That's another trick the USHPA Board uses to keep their cronies in power against the will of the members.

I'll bet that's what happens.

Proud to have authored write in #3, this is fabulous news.
What is very strange is that Henzi was not even on the ballot when I voted, and that is the reason for my write in.
Major Go Fundme will most certainly continue to try to irritate and obfuscate!

Congratulations to Region 1 from USHPA members from coast to coast!!!

The vote was very close. It just shows that every vote counts. Thanks for casting yours Dave!    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Do you know anything about Matt Henzi? Is he a reformer?

Actually, we need a national hang gliding association.
Not something else run by daredevils with parachutes.
The USHPA isn't something to fix.
It can't be fixed. The fundamental concept is wrong.
It's something to leave.

That's a lot of total votes :shock:

I've seen issues put before the entire A$$n. that didn't get that response.

I can't believe it was a planned, turning over the position.

Region 1 ? Any more info ?. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
