hey guys,

same as last year, first week of Feb, we will have our membership drive this weekend.

it will start on Fri and end no later than Sun

whatever comes in will be used to fund server and tech nerd costs for the next year.

Our current expiration date is Mar 11 of this year. Collections will take us to that period next year, as we will pay up for the year,
with excess funds on hold for tech issues throughout the year.

fyi is all,

Scorp

Thanks for heads up.
February is an expensive month for me. Got Valentine's day, grand daughter's birthday and wife's birthday one day after the other. Home owners and company liability insurances up for renewal, getting new sneakers on my car tomorrow. Can't forget all the regular bills. Guess I have a reason to get out of bed all month.

thanks guys, but relax, no rush

please make sure the guys all leave a note so proper credit is received to those who contribute,

either by pm or a note with the paypal donate,

no names or addresses is fine, just a heads up to the 'user name' to credit

TIA

Voodoo, we don't take anymore than we need,
so, there is enough that comes in to pay for the year, and we don't need it after that.

that is why no monthlies, I actually turn it off when we are done.

WELL, I hope it is working for you 'cause I had sent my donation at the time it appeared when I came on site 40 mins. ago.
It came up in nice big font before going to the regular front page. gb

Thanks to Scorp, all the mods and all the members!

First thing I saw when I opened the forum this morning and it worked fine. Next thing I saw was Fatrat's reply and the wife was wondering why I was laughing so hard. I said, "Cause I got company".

Oh I received a "thank you for your contribution to the Lizzy Warren campaign for president."

They seemed to think I was some chap named Lt Dan. Weird.
