  1. Ron Earp 2022 Fund Drive

    Hi Folks, It's 2022 and if you'd told me over twenty years ago that we'd still be an active and growing forum community I wouldn't have believed you. Pretty amazing.

    What's Happening Down Here?

    So, what's up in the paddock? Is it open for discussions of all types? What's the current rule set? Seems like traffic has been relatively low down this way.

    Will There Be a Paddock on the New

    Will there? I don't know. If we didn't have a paddock more than a few of you would have a hell of a lot more time on your hands, that's for certain. I'm a bit conflicted if we should continue with the paddock. If we do have a paddock I want it to be password entry only. And, I'd like for it...
