The results of the RUSA board election were sent to RBAs today, and President Mark Thomas forwarded the announcement to the Seattle Randonneurs list. Congratulations to Eric Vigoren and Edward Robinson, who has done a terrific job as permanents coordinator. I was pulling for Bill Bryant, as you know, and am sure he will remain a strong voice in the randonneuring community. Here is the announcement from Mike Dayton:
