Alan,

This has been a fantastic forum and enjoyed by many of us. I left the EPE subscriber community some years ago following the Pocketmags issues, however I have kept with the forum more or less.

There is no doubt it has helped many people, allowed experiences to be shared, excited more than a few, wound up some arguments and also made some fun. I've had inspiration on here and I hope I've been able to give some back at least once!

However, it is a sad fact that our hobby is reducing (dying is a strong word) and I have noticed, with dismay, the frequency of postings reducing. The nature has also changed and the demise of this wonderful facility was inevitable.

Well done - indeed Congratulations - on keeping it going this long. It would be a shame if it just stopped there; it occurs to me that the legacy of some respected people, Dave Barrington & John Becker among them, has lived on in the spirit of the hobby encapsulated here.

I hope we can get a Facebook or similar page going as it would be a shame to lose touch with old friends - even if apparently virtual ones - from around the world.
