Both have been around the game for awhile, have numerous finds of caches from both sites, have been active in these forums (>500 posts) and expressed opinions on this topic in the original thread.
Well I must say that was out of left field! I didn't expect to be nominated for such an important position!
Especially when there are people with a lot more finds, though I guess a lot don't frequent the forums regularly - and haven't expressed an opinion.
That said, I would be happy to do it. Because I want GCA to continue in the best way possible and recognising all the hard work the volunteers have done until now to make it what it is.
I will echo rhonogeo's comments about being nominated (not the I think part, but the other part about being willing to provide a service).
So if I need to write a brief "election" statement - I have been caching for about 5 years and obviously love it. My job is a "wireless network engineer" which involves everything from wireless LANs, broadband deployments in University accomodation, microwave links, laser links etc. I have experience and some qualifications in project management. Prior to that did network stuff with OTC/Telstra. I am also involved in long distance radio reception (DX) with the Australian Radio DX Club currently being the magazine editor and in the past also being Secretary (before I moved to Adelaide before moving back to Sydney).
My upcoming work commitments won't stop me being a part of discussions - maybe a few day trips over the next month or so but will have internet where I am going to be. But no big trips where I will be out touch for a week etc.
