Please join me in welcoming two new Moderators for the Classics forum, Charlie B and Sean Cunneen.  They will be joining Ross here.  Thank you gentlemen for stepping up!  

 

They are long-time classic scope enthusiasts with much experience and knowledge.  Sean is a lifelong ATM, like myself.  

 

Please go easy on them, gang!

 

Thanks again, Charlie and Sean, and Ross as well.  Administrator Ken Sturrock and myself will still hover around the edges until everyone is up to speed.

Big HELLO and thank you to Charlie B and to Sean Cunneen.  Your job is a very necessary but often thankless task of keeping order in this wild west.  Welcome to the new sheriff's in town.

Okay great    thanks for volunteering..... perhaps not known to all   but administrators and moderators do so voluntarily without any compensation or discounts or quid pro quo of any kind and for this service 

they remain ever vigilant and at the ready to  review and arbitrate and    keep us all in FOCUS 

Perhaps some occassional thanks are in order

Jolly Good!

 

THE MOUNTAIN CLIMBER! A FOUR-COUNT EXERCISE DONE AT A MODERATE CADENCE!

 

STARTING POSITION - MOVE!

 

IN CADENCE - EXERCISE!

 

ONE! - TWO! - THREE! - FOUR!

 

(repeat until all participants are face down, gasping, hating you, life, and their decision to be here, and then yell...)

 

RECOVER!

 

ahhh, to be young again...

 

or not...
