Default The New Offical Gerry of Canada Thread

I have spoken to Gerry today and he assures me that a refund check has been sent to me via airmail. I have tracking numbers this time I had been requested to delete this thread because it contains his personal info and his family has been thru a lot in the past few days. I was torn by the decision to delete the thread because it contains some of the funniest chit I have read in a long, long time. It was also, in my opinion, one of OSO's finest hours.

A bunch of swell guys rallied around a fellow OSO member that they thought had been wronged and contributed their time, wit, resources and considerable kick-ass Internet surfing skills (the mad masher comes to mind) in order to help out a fellow OSO member that most have never met. If all goes well you will have helped me get back a large sum of money that I had long since kissed goodbye. For that, I can't thank you enough - but I will try. Thank you OSO from the bottom of my heart.

I am the type of person who tends to forgive, if not completely forget, and since the thread appears to have served it's original purpose, it bothered me to continue to have that header up considering that the person in question has "agreed" to do the right thing.

OSO has shown that if a member is wronged then a community of tight boaters can do something about. I will keep you posted on the progress as I receive the check and it clears the banks. If it doesn't work out then I guess we can always march on Vernon again.

Again, thanks for all of your help and let's cross our fingers that in a few days the check will have come and soon be cleared.
Then we can talk about me paying up on that promise of Free Beer for all who can make it to the Lake Cumberland Poker Run



Thank you,

Robert Lipps
