Most of you know what I'm doing these days but those that aren't 100% up to speed I thought I'd post this thread up and explain why I'm not around this board as much as I have been previously. I am a full costume member of the Rebel Legion and a forum moderator for Elstree Base here in the UK. I am a full costume member of Knights of the Republic and the Event Liaison Officer. Both of these take up a great deal of my time at the moment along with attending various events and helping the members of both clubs get something out of their hobby. Some of you may feel that I have walked away from the Fan Force and all of you, that isn't strictly true although I haven't posted anything of substance for some time. I always knew the Midlands chapter would and could survive without my 24/7 input and to prove that, you're all still here and all still talking to each other. I may have, in the past fuelled some arguments and been far too hasty in saying it how I see it but that's just the way I am. Quite a few things have changed for many of us during the last 18 months, some for the better and some for the worse but we are all still here and all still willing to spend our time in each others company, that will always be the foundation of this chapter and long may it continue. It isn't always going to be possible for me to attend meets or get heavily involved in what the chapter is doing but I will always be a member and when I can, I'll be there.
