Or give it a proper send-off. Some things aren't meant to be forever...

Time to bury the BOC time-capsule style. Anyone pouring a new foundation?

Perhaps it's time for me to share the letter I left in the Oval Office desk drawer for my successor several years ago.

Office of the Crapmaster
TARDIS, Universe

It is with great relief that I bequeath unto you the official title of Crapmaster, BFCV. As per tradition, I include this personal note to help guide you on your journey.

Just as the only reason the Wizard of Oz had absolutely pure and full authority to lay down the law was because the Munchkins believed he was Great and Powerful, C&Ver’s must believe that you are so. It is acceptable to ask for help in making rulings when things go sideways, but a quick, firm, and unequivocal statement helps keep things in line, even if you’re unsure yourself. It is also wise to have your minions do the dirty work for you, such as calling out those that don’t publish pictures, or bogart the box.

Bottom line, you own the game. It doesn’t matter what past Crapmasters have done, you have the power to change things. I know you’ll keep what’s working. Be you. Continue from the past if you feel comfortable. If anything rubs the wrong way, feel free to change it.

You cannot make grammatical or spelling errors, those that say you did are wrong. If you inadvertently put in a past date for something that is yet to happen and get called out for it, remind those that call you out that the Great and Powerful Crapmaster has an efficient TARDIS at your disposal, even if in reality it’s a 1984 Ford Taurus with 200,000 miles on it. It’s not important that the Taurus didn’t exist before 1986, you are the Great and Powerful...you get my drift.

Go forth and lead your minions in spreading their crap and cat toys throughout the contiguous United States of America. As I stated in my very first post when Drillium Dude was herding the cats, “This sounds like a very stupid game. Sign me up.” When in doubt, fake it until you make it.
Hoping some power hungry BF C&Ver will see this and decide that they're ready to step up and lead us to the promised land of crap.


Gugie,
As much as it pains me to yet take on another duty after retiring from multiple years in a University setting, and finding myself quite comfortable being such. I will at your urging attempt to be a new Crap Master. I have very low skills at using my confuser but I will do my best to herd the cats that the Box O' Crap attract. I would ask that you contact me by phone to ascertain what I will need to do to be a Crap Master. If I can do it, I will do my best to keep the BOC moving. Thanks, MH 812-336-3283

Mad Honk is already leading so... Start series nine with new thread with Mad Honk at the helm. First post list of crapsters is an important part of the game. Just my humble crappy opinion. :D

As per the request of Reco Very and other Crapmasters emeriti I have started Box O' Crap series nine and Box O' Crap series eight will now be retired. All who wish to play join in at BOC series nine to register. Smiles, MH

Gran Compe levers.
 
Late to the game here but I wanted to say thank you to whomever contributed the Gran Compe Levers. I really like them paired with Dia Compe 750s and they look great.

The incorrectly installed second hand bar tape is a stop gap, once Iím sure I like the setup the plan is shellacked cloth tape and lever hoods. Looking forward to BOC Series Nine.
