I think many people are like myself. We want to help, have signed up to help, but need direction from the "powers" as to what you need help with.
I think too, that untill the site and program is official, everyone is just waiting to hear. then everything will start moving in fast forward and people will jump in with both feet to help. But again, they (I) would need to be told what they needed. us to help with.
Yes, for OSO there was fewer people that showed than was expected for patrol boats, but it went just fine, infact I think everyone who helped last year has basically already signed up for next year, as well as people that saw how it went, then inquired how they too could join in. It grows....
Hopefully we will here news in the next couple of weeks, so we can all get Officially started"
finally, dont worry about not succeeding, only looking forward, this is how things get done! What is the old saying: Failure is not an option!
