Members: 7,960 We're gonna go over 8,000 members this month. I've been a member of the BOC since July of 2002. When I joined there were only about 1,000 members. And just before we started the new board here, we had over 12,000 registered members at that time on the old site. Took 3 years to build it to that size. We started here just about a year ago and look how we've grown in that time. I'm sure glad I'm part of this great site. And I'm especially blessed to be a part of the staff. Being on the staff is special to me. I was asked recently what the difference is between a regular member and staff member is. Well, to me it's very simple. I've been given the opportunity to help keep the BOC as fun and safe as it was the day I joined. I am a member like any one of you, with the main difference of being able to do all the great things we do to make this a better place. It gives me the chance to pay all of you back for all the information I've learned from day one and still do learn everyday. And it also gives me the chance to re-pay our founder for his dedication to us and the place he's give us all to come be with friends. I hope you all enjoy this site as much as I do. And I know the whole staff feels the same way I do. Thanks to all our loyal and dedicated members, it's you that make the BOC what it is.
