The CKA Staff

CKA Tournament Directors donate time, resources and energy to running our trail and club. As such, the directors divide tasks, but also have specific roles. If you are looking to contact a CKA staff member about a specific issue or topic, arrange an interview for the press, or ask a tournament related question, the following list may help you get started. The staff generally responds most quickly to inquiries sent through the CKA Facebook page.
