Great news.
Since I have never met any of you in person, this looks like a great opportunity.

Pardon my ignorance, but wow....I didn't know the guy was footin' the bill for all this stuff......What is he into it for?....Will he eventually sell out to Internet Brands, and leave us all in the dust ? The other place kinda left a bad taste in my mouth, after seeing a lot of good people give their hard earned money, and either get banned, or just leave. I'm kinda leery, so don't be offended by my valid questions......This isn't the thread for this convo though..... So, let's make this a rhetorical post........

Gary is just doing it for fun and to provide a nice hassle free place where vette people can congregate and share ideas, info and the like. What he told me is ideally it would be best if the site eventually paid for itself but he's not in it to turn a profit.

More details to follow, but mark your damn calendars!!!
So I take from the responses that Memorial Day at the NCM usually belongs to CF??

If so that is one hell of an awesome move for VB.
Way to go IC.

Even if he does profit from it,good for him, but remember, that VB was started as an alternative to a money grubbing (St. Judes or nothing), clique, (mod), oriented forum, of Nazi control freaks....Lately, the reigns seem to be tightening...This is my opinion, as well as a couple of other members that I keep in touch with privately. I seem to be tip toeing around here lately, so I guess that I'll just wait until I see how this progresses, for a while longer. My barn stall number is still available, and I'll get it when the time is right.

It also shows the rest of the members that you're not a total freeloading cheapskate.
