Yes. I still have the package of goodies that was sent although I forget what was in it. I know there was a sticker for the boat.

From what I remember, when Jeffrey owned OSO, he offered any present OSO member at the time, a chance to become a "Charter member", if they kicked in $20 each to buy a bigger server, the sticker and all the neat little goodies t-shirts that came with it also

I've always wondered how the site was promoted, how you long timers ( Charter members ) found out about OSO, after all its been about 19 yrs since the site was founded by Jeffrey, word of mouth, racing events ??.

I think I stumbled on to OSO by a search engine. You didn't have to register at first and it was chaotic at times. Back in the early days, every HP boater that was computer literate seemed to be on here. You would go to races or boat shows, etc. and meet other members all the time.
