Message from the KDEA President:
As 2018 gets off to a cold start, we are all getting anxious to get out and ride! I think we need to build the market, and attendance to shows in Wichita area, and that's my goal for this year. We will be offering some exciting new (and old) classes to the shows this year to make it more fun for everyone to participate. I'm always open to hearing anyone's ideas, and suggestions, so please don't hesitate to contact me.
Send us your area events to be posted. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
