jhrii has played once before and kept the chain going, so lets hope there was just a bit of a snag that can be quickly resolved.

jhrii is hopefully just waylaid, he also has not been on since the 12th and most of his post activity before that (recent that is), is BoC stuff trying to get things lined up, so I will hold onto hope for now that the boc is not lost yet again

So how long do you guys think before we discuss a reset? This is not looking good, and did anyone ever confirm Bici sent it out?

This sucks. A number of us sent stuff to RaleighSport to get the BOC restarted back in June. The box never even made it back to me. I doubt any other of the contributors received it either.

The BOC went out yesterday morning to jrhii.

The world sort of caved in on me all of the sudden, metaphorically speaking. We are just getting back to normal. My apologies to everyone for the delay and the undue fret. Hopefully my contribution to the BOC will be sweet enough to appease.

Hey, Y'all.

It is with regret that I must step out of line for this go round.

I'm in the middle of a monumental task which is eating up all of my time ATM,
and I'm not sure when I'll be finished.

Please remove me and I'll ask to be re-enlisted when thing get a bit less insane.

Thanks. And Happy Crapping !!!

BM: I'm glad to hear things are looking better Speaking for the group, thanks for the update on the Box and keep us in mind if you'd like to re-join the queue later on down the road again.

Shadoman:
I'll remove you from the current queue; PM me or drop a line here when you feel ready to re-join, okay?

It just arrived. My compliments to the person who decorated the box. I took 5 minutes to read it all before I even opened it. I'll likely get it out to the next recipient early next week.

You might as well share, the boxes only make it between a few people before getting worn to the point that fresh cardboard is required.
