Rick Vink was one of the first people I interacted with, at least on a coach-reporter basis, when I rolled into town almost a year ago.
Vink and his Post 15 Iola Indians were preparing to host the AA American Legion Zone Tournament at the Humboldt Sports Complex and I went out and got quotes for a preview story.
I was greeted kindly and immediately brought into the Iola sports world by Vink that day.
