Default Sad state of affairs...No pics, no stories from LOTO

I mean, we got some great photo's from Pete in the photo thread and the media articles from SOTW. But seriously, where's all the threads from the members there NOW! This is one of the biggest boating events in the world and there is ZERO member threads about the event. Kinda depressing. Used to be an event like this would fill up the whole home page from all the difference threads from people posting stories and photos.

Guess I'm mostly bummed because I'm sitting at my desk at work but damn, I miss the old days of this place.

Go to Facebook , tons of pics and videos.
Nobody wants to be on a site wasting their time typing stuff out and if the mods or advertiser don`t like it gets locked or deleted.

Maybe. Like I said, used to be on going multiple threads and live updates as the days went on. Miss those times.

Got a bunch of texts from friends at Supercat fest this week and I actually had to look up to see if the shoot-out was this weekend. It was just an eye opener to the state of things when huge events aren't all over the place on here.
