Okay guys, here's what's happening. As you're all aware, this site is going offline permanently on June 1st unless someone buys it. While several of us have inquired about the price, none of us are able to match it - individually, at least.

Gregg Richter and I are planning to put up a sizable fraction of the cost to buy the site. Although neither of us is capable of affording it individually, together we can get pretty close. In another thread, many of you have donated to Gregg to help fund the purchase. He and I are extremely grateful to everyone who has. If any more of you would be willing to donate, we would greatly appreciate it.

Once we have the funds, we'll buy the site and keep it running. We don't intend to make any significant changes.

Lastly, even though maintaining the site requires monthly and annual fees to rent the server and renew the domains, we will not instate a user fee. If you'd be willing, we certainly wouldn't turn down donations to help keep the site operating, but we absolutely will not make it a requirement.



Guys, I don't want to see this site disappear. It's such a massive treasure trove of knowledge and information about my favorite activity. But more than that, it's the single best group I've ever belonged to. I know we can save it if we all pitch in and work together.

Thanks to Chance and Gregg! I've been a bit slow so my check is in the box waiting for the mailman. Keep us informed as things play out if you need more support.
