Looks good. The only suggestion I would make iis move Riley as District 8 Digital AEC up just below Rik.

Jim - play with this some and see if you think this approach works. It allows us to add content and we can add everyone else in varying roles and it works something like a forum.

Interesting, but free. And this comment was added by simply replying to the email. Now THAT is interesting.

Cool beans. Jim went right in and added his net night to the online EC log. I am hopeful that when complete, that log form can be easily given to Rik either in print or digitally.
