I've been away, so perhaps someone can enlighten me as to what has happened with our BOC chatroom. Chat is FUN people, at least in IMO it is. It gives you the chance to converse, BS, and enjoy the company of the brothers and sisters of the BOC. Also, I do believe that the regular chatters here get to know each other better. Not that threads and posts do not provide that - chat is just a bit more like discussing topics with people in person. Some folks think they won't/don't like chat, maybe due to the fact that that person feels they aren't the best typer, and can't keep up. It's the best practice though. I know MY typing skills have increased dramatically (I did learn how in 9th grade) since I began participating here on the BOC and dropping into the chatroom. I had actually planned to visit there this evening; and then everyone disappeared, thus the reason for this post. All I really want to say is (if ya don't know me, might as well get used to everything being drawn out :tounge_out, don't dismiss chat as something you can't do. You can. We welcome anyone, new members, old members, doesn't matter. Be forewarned, we do not ALWAYS talk about fishing. Life, love, luck, and anything concerned therein could be covered, depending on who is "IN" the chatroom. Thanks for reading, and if you're a new member, WELCOME TO THE BOC, WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE YOU!!!
