  • Dear Community Members,

    Over the last two years, there have been updates to the environment that have introduced challenges in usability, performance, and security. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses. This has made it increasingly difficult and frustrating to support and upgrade to more modern reliable standards that users deserve. This is not the experience we want for the members of this community.

    Members want a fast site that performs well across all devices, to be able to find relevant and interesting content, and easily share through text, images, video, and messaging on a secure platform. Our goal is to provide this user experience to all members. We will be updating to a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and allow us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. Technology is constantly innovating - by creating an environment that we control we can maintain the site with more frequent improvements and maintenance updates.

    Although change can be difficult, we are here to support you through the process. We make every effort to review existing settings and make the changes needed so the migration goes smoothly. If you notice something doesn’t seem correct once the site goes live, don’t panic! We’ll have a dedicated person monitoring as the site goes live to answer any questions and provide support through this change. What’s next?

    When will this be happening? The plan is to put our current forums into maintenance mode (off line) at around 9am MST on 9/30/2020! The whole transition should take 24-36 hours. We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software. The sooner we can change that the better we can make the experience for you. You’ll start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration very shortly. We will post an announcement to the community prior to starting the actual data migration.

    We appreciate each member’s contribution to this community and look forward to an improved experience for you all.

        I could have went some more. I had a good summer. And I am not wearing a coat to boat. I am real happy playing with the chevelle now. It says 27 sat here. Me and the boy been hiking by the lake it is perfect weather for that now. Every season has things to look forward to if you like doing them. And we do like everything here.

        Boy is so cranked up he can't wait to play with the snow blower. I remember that age. Snow was the thing. I am older but I still enjoy my snow and ice. Building igloos. Snowmen. Winter is when you hit the pool and climb the repelling walls at the sports center.

        I put in the new temp sender the other day. I put a new wheel bearing in towmater today and a alignment.

        I think the boy wants to try and kill himself on a sled this year.

        It about time to mulch leaves and pull bulbs, cut things to the ground. I did build a set of shelves in the corner for the boating stuff. There is a ton of it that isnt in the boat. Extra life jackets fishing and camping gear.

        We had a good 24 hour rain. The new boathouse and tarps the boat is bone dry and with the new drain I put in the ground under it to.
        Dance with the waves,
        move with the sea.
        Let the rhythm of the water
        set your soul free.

                      • Okay that works. This is the boat my uncle and his brother used as kids when it was new. It has sat in the barn its whole life. It is mohagany wood. Tires are rotted off no motor. But they are both really old and his brother is selling his farm so it needs to go bye bye. He really wants to see it restored and used is why he offered it to me. I dont have room or it be in my back yard now. It has been glassed on the outside somewhere in its life. This is just so you can see it since I mentioned it.

                        • Nice ! Looks restorable to me .. Hopefully someone will resurrect it !
                          That would be a nice project for a youth program like the scampy ACBS .

                          If no takers he might try getting in touch with the Bluegrass chapter

                            • I had a split in a pleat. Machine didnt walk right and the stiches were to close. I had the seat together before woody said that was bad on someone elses post. I made new pleats took it out. Put the new piece in and reassembled the boat. Now would be the time right it isnt moving for a while.

                              Yea my uncle said it is beautiful looking still maybe a could pieces need replaced on the seat deals. I wanted to put a trolling motor and battery on it and use it at the lake that dont allow gas engines. But wifey said OH NO you dont got room. 4 cars and a boat was enough. I hate when they are right.
