I've emailed Chuck directly re: his current leadership of the Wa LoCo
and if he is still willing to be the lead or ready to pass it on to
someone else. I don't want to go about changing things when current
ownership is unclear. I'd just love to see the WA LoCo active. :-)

My understanding from the wiki/mailing list archives is that the pnw
loco was told to split and the OR loco is active and wa loco has not
launched or recovered from that split. Most of that activity on the WA
side has moved to GSLUG, which is great but it's not an Ubuntu LoCo.

In the mean time we can bandy about some ideas on the mailing list, or
#ubuntu-us-wa (anyone?), and see if there is any sort of consensus on
what The WA LoCo should be. I'll start a new thread for that.

I'll also cc him on this thread, since I am unsure if he is subbed to
the list.
