    Awaiting announcement of the forum administrator.

    Understand there was an announcement made in open session at the last BOD meeting.

    I wasn't there so I didn't hear anything.

    But I understood an announcement was made and I would hope that there would be some mention on the forum by those in charge.

    You ARE an optimist aren't you. They don't have time to deal with posting on the forum, remember?

    I'm still an optimist and perhaps spoke out of turn.

    We will see.

    In spite of everything, I remain optimistic about the forum and the MOA.

    This organization is poised for greater things and I'm glad to be a member while changes take place. The two recently held events are a sign that the organization is headed in a new direction.

    I worked for a very wise person once who tried to help me, early in my career, to put things in perspective. I would complain to him (he was my boss) about all of the things going wrong or that needed fixing. He would always reply "It is just a bump in the road." Most of the time he was right.

    After all, this is supposed to be fun.

    I saw something interesting in this post from the Poobah. Two names were mentioned... found it interesting and it may relate to this question.

    simulated flight test only

    And then the shadow passed over from above, and then I realized it was sad, but true...

    Pigs don't fly! what was that flying object in the sky?


    I was waiting for some real news, like maybe Motor 31 was given back his sig line, or the TAVERN was about to take flight...

    Oh well. I will continue to exist here; so be it in the shadows!

    oh...Congrats Darryl ! thaks for taking it on.

    Thanks very much for the welcome. I hope we can achieve many of the goals you would all like to see here. I know there are a couple things in the pipeline right now, mostly awaiting me having enough concentrated time to get them right for announcement.

    I would just like to point out that if a Board member made a comment like this about anyone else on this forum he or she would be accused of badgering or demeaning a member. I think we'd all do better to keep such "clever" comments to ourselves and out of our posts.

    There is a expectation here - at least by some - that it's the *responsibly* of someone in the organization to post any and every detail when something happens in real time. If "we" don't meet those expectations then we're fair game for attacks and reckless accusations. This thread was started on the 27th. I know that I spent all day Sunday traveling back from the Board meeting and didn't get home until 6:45pm local time. I worked all day Monday and have been sick with a cold since then.

    What is announced in Open Session at a Board meeting is public information and can be passed along by anyone. I fully support getting information out quickly and Darrel's appointment is very good news. It's just not the job of anyone on the Board to report here about it. When Dave asked how many people at the meeting used the forum, about twenty people raised their hands.
