    Hello everyone,

    Today is a sad day at The Laser Forum/Sailing Forums Network: Our beloved Administrator, Janet Rupert (Merrily), is stepping down from her post. I would like to thank Janet for all her help since she joined the forum and helped to maintain the network of sites. Her time and effort in the spotlight and behind the scenes could never be justly compensated. Janet still plans to remain an active member of the community here at TLF and will continue her official duties for the ILCA-NA. I would like to wish Janet well and I hope you all will do the same.

    The following is the message she asked me to post on her behalf.
    Thanks again Merrily!

    Best Regards,

    Merrily, thanks for your hard work. It's truly a thankless job.

    How can it be a thankless job Chris if you just thanked her?

    Thanks Merrily - we all appreciated all your efforts on this forum. Have fun sailing and maybe I'll meet you at a regatta somewhere.

    See - I thanked her too - that proves it's not a thankless job.

    Uh Merrily?? I don't know about anybody else here but I don't intend to accept that resignation.
    You are a fixture!!!

    A human one...Nice...good folk...loved by all, appreciated by all who have any sense what so ever and many of us who don't...all that stuff in spades. but.

    Nope. Not gonna accept that rsignation.

    No way. Not happening.

    Ears plugged and eyes closed...not reading any more of this silly stuff about doing something else... uh uh.

    Merrily forever!!!

    haha fred you crack me up.
    But everything he says is true.
    Your support of this forum and what you have helped create is truly admirable and we will miss you as an administrator.
    If you look at this forum as a family you are defiantaley the mother figure and we will miss that. I hope you keep posting regularly.
