you would hear the nuclear blast come out of my mouth from sea to shining sea. china might even hear it.
This hobby is too damned small to have ANY tolerance for abusing newcomers or anyone for that matter on trivial matters.
safety is one thing.

Just an FYI george this might actually be coming. apparently there is going to be a member section to the NAR website (accessible via a login nar members getMessage 151 of 151 , Aug 16, 2012View SourceJust an FYI george
this might actually be coming.
apparently there is going to be a member "section" to the NAR website (accessible via a login nar members get ??)
and it was hinted that there is potential maybe for this "kind" of stuff to go their.
SO it might happen. it might end up that "WE" the NAR member base can "build" this repository of information and have it disseminated to everyone easily and conveniently.
at least thats what was "hinted" at so I am looking forward to it :-)
> Jeff, you make a great point. People have to be made aware f this stuff to being with, and for most of them that first awareness would be thru the magazine. I do know that the stuff needs to go in the magazine, too.
> But it's frustrating in this information age to think of coming up with stuff to go into the magazine, that once it's printed in it, for anyone else later on it almost does not exist (because it is totally impractical to expect people to find out about it and then buy it via expensive back-issues at NARTS, only to get a plan here or contest article there). So, t get the most effective use out of all of it, in the big picture, for the long haul, it also needs to be available online, if we can all get our collective butts in gear to do a "Contest Central" area on the NAR website (If the NAR board would let that happen).
