If you look through the profiles, you will also find a lot of people who haven't logged on in 3-4 years. I always wonder if they gave up turning, or found something here unsatisfactory, or (since many of us are older) dropped off due to health problems.

The board was started in 2002?, and in March, 2004, it was so badly hacked that Chris started all over again in April, 2004.  It took until 2010 to reach 2000 members.  We hit 3000 members in January, 2011, 3500 in July, 2011, and 4000 members this week.

It wasn't widely known, but we used to drop folks off the membership list after a lengthy period of inactivity.  We don't do that now unless there is a problem.  Numbers have been escalating for a while now.  It is my belief that we have the best thing going on the web.  I've looked at several other sites and cannot believe how much better WR is than the others that are out there.  Main reason?  The 4000 members and especially the ones that are active.  It is you men and women who make this the #1 destination in the turning internet world.  Thanks to you all.

If you don't see your name it is because either you have not sent me a PM with your information, or I've asked for some more information from you in a reply PM.  I MUST HAVE A PM FOR YOU TO BE ENTERED!  I check the PM's against my Excel spreadsheet to make sure I have everyone.  I also copy and paste from your PM into the spreadsheet to make sure all the information is correct. 

I'm making the list.
You check it twice.
Don't be naughty.
Send your information and be NICE!

So far we have 17 boxes to be passed from one end of the country to the other.  Surely there are more of you who would like to play our little game of "What's In The Box."  It really is like getting another Christmas present, no matter what time of the year we play.  Some have loads of only one type of wood and want some variety.  Some are looking for something different that they stash they have piled up in the corner of the shop.  Some want green.  Some want dry.  Some want pen blanks while others are looking for bowl blanks.  Only thing I'll guarantee is that you won't know what's coming until you open your box (that is unless your sender contacts you  and blabs). 

WHO ELSE IS GOING TO PLAY?!

Glad to hear it.  I think I'll send wood too.  So are several others, so many that we have 17 boxes moving about the country side.  I'm surprised that there aren't twice that many.  We still have time!  Lots of names can come in over the next week.
