I just hope us Charter Members still receive the 'benefit' of being one of the first here. . . I know Steve did after he bought it from Jeff

I hope that they still honor the Charter Memebers agreement. I was very happy when Steve did. I am willing to waite it out and see what happens in this, I am sure that Steve has let them know what makes this site so great. I hope that Steve gets the help that he needs with this so that he again enjoys the sport!!!
Put your best foot forward!

Hopefully the new owners will cut off the registereds' after 7 posts without joining

1st off, congrats to Steve, hopefully this will relieve some of the OSO stress, and put some coin in his pocket for all of his hard work!

I'm curious also to see if this stays the same also. We as charter members, were the 1st ones to help fund this site and get it up and running under Jeffery's ownership. Time will tell. I hope it stays the same all the way around.

I've never met Steve, but this site has always rocked, and seeing the OSO Cig at the Jammin poker run last year was awesome. This year, I'll be sure to shake his hand and thank him for all he's done for the sport if he's there. I never knew he was actually running the OSO boat. Thanks for OSO!

It takes a certain type of person to get a site like this going and to the point it is today. I assure you that you are one in a million. Good luck with everything!

I have two questions:

1. Can OSO still be "Where everyone can be an expert"?

2. Do I have to start paying for a membership?

Congrats to you Steve! See you in three weeks!!
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!
