good to here you all good now and things are moving on bud.
surf trip to the south west coast of england.
its not far from where i live in the uk
theres a little place called croyde bay 1 of the best surf spots in the country
can get farely big and hollow on good days.
but as iam a old fella now its the mal for me 7'8 my poor old knees cant handle
thrashing around on my short boards any more iam more of a glider nowadays :lol: :lol:
around that coast there are some good secret spots as well which i have found over the 35 yrs
i have been surfing.
and the good thing is i can get good signal on phone so after a surf it will be barbie
beer and dogfight what a perfect day :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

I used to see people wind surf I believe it was at Bawdsey Bay (hope that name is correct). My wife and I (then girlfriend) used to go to Felixtowe and Bawdsey Bay Quite a bit. There were other places but I Can't remember the names (Mid to late 80's was awhile ago). :)

Just saw this ad that stated "Every day after you're 40 your testosterone drops. Here's how we can help."

Obviously they've never heard of Dogfight......

So all this wonderful banter and tons of mad love/respect for us older players. Has something been made "official" yet?

Wish I could invite all ya'll and your wives for a nice big BBQ spread at my house, have all 5 major food groups - ribs, brisket, sausage, pork and chicken! True Texas style

Alright, let's see if I can address all of the recent posts in one pass:

General Jackson, suh, all due respect for your decision to remain with enigma and deepest appreciation for considering coming on board with us.

Slenderman, you're a gentleman. Thanks for setting the example everyone, enigma and otherwise, should follow.

Ktheo...damn right you qualify! Welcome to M.O.M., man!

Big Tex, I think I've already communicated with you, yes? Remind me, are you definitely in yet? Pretty sure you've said so, so please bear with my short term memory loss.

I know Cloudbuster is still weighing his options...perfectly reasonable. Keep us posted, CB.

As to all the references to our "stealing" players, Slender and, I think in truth even Calvin, understand that that's not what's happening here. A conversation started by SheiBe attracted Strachan, Farcanal, me and a few others in our...uh...advancing youth...and the thing simply made sense. It's a runaway train now, I'm just pretending to be engineer since somebody needs to suss out the details and keep track, but we're all equally at the controls.

And to all the "is this really going to happen?" inquiries...YES! It appears to be happening without my or anyone else's influence. That's the sign of an idea whose time has come.

Next post, a current list of declared and on the fence members...

Here's the roster, partially from scrolling back, partially from in-game commitments and/or interest, almost certainly partially wrong. If you don't see your name and should, drop a note here. If you do see your name and shouldn't...hey, you're on a list, might as well just go ahead and commit, right? :whistle: Anyway, apologies in advance for what I know will be a couple gaffs.

In no particular order...

SheiBe Kopf
B Strachan
Dentinhead
. Wigbomb
Farcanal
btschuman
dogss
Bopes
Seattle
Big Tex
Hat in the Ring
Paul Mantz, Jr.
NJ Devil
Ktheo
SB467
iQQi
Mavrk12
oedius

An aside to Hat in the Ring: was it you, or Hat in Ring, who wanted to join? You two need to differentiate your names a little more. Like with a M.O.M. insignia.

Potentials:

Rickenfaker (already expressed interest)
Cloudbuster (undecided)
ZandorHawke (undecided)
Polecat (I think someone recommended we contact him?)
BADLUCK13 (likewise...or I might be making this one up)
Gamekeeper (G, have you decided to join or just testing the waters? Let us know)

Again, if I've screwed up by leaving you out, putting you in, or putting your name on the wrong part of the list, correct me.

And again, there's the "Prodigy" concept; under-30 players who just have too good an attitude to be turned away. We should start compiling a list of them, too.

I think I am ranked somewhere between 165 - 175. You can find me listed as [e]Big Tex.

MOM is hilarious, but I think I liked Old Fokkers better.


Or moderate after a few White Russians. :P

I'm glad to know that I'm not the oldest player here. First time I tried this game, I was kinda embarrass because I thought everyone are teens and on their 20's and I'm 38.:) they keep teasing me at work saying this is a kids game but I told them I don't care because I enjoy playing with pretty much every players here except for the rude ones. With all the flying games I tried, this is the most realistic and the best.

Well, actually LivingDead99, yes, you can join us. So can you, Cal. The minute you're old enough to drive yourself to the voting booth stopping to pick up some liquor and cigarettes on the way.

Well, I could do that now, not legally, but I know how to drive a car through a liquor store, pick up what I want, and back out through the wall. ;) I wouldn't do any of that, of course. Lol, I feel like I'm doing one of those posts on Facebook. "Never drank, smoked pot, stayed out past curfew, had sex, etc. Like if you think I'm lying."

Sorry if this sounds stupid. I'm going to bed now, posting at 3 in the morning rarely works out well.:)

Forgive me if this has been mentioned as a possible squadron name but what about The Viagra Squadron? I can think of about 1000 mottos...maybe even one that wouldn't get me banned.

Very clever, Zandor! We've had some other solid suggestions but the strong frontrunner that's gaining a ton of traction and leaving the rest of the field of possible names behind is M.O.M. aka Mean Old Men. I'm sure we'll find other ways to spin the acronym as we go along. And like your idea the possibilities for mottos, log lines, slogans, wisecracks and the like seem almost limitless. The name isn't yet carved in stone but it's unlikely anything else will overtake it, so I'm already mocking up insignia and banner art.

Thanks for the input, ZH, wish we had you in the club!

How about, oh..."Mean Old Ma'ams". That establishes gender parity, doesn't exclude female players, (which we don't) and preserves the acronym so I don't have to generate custom artwork for each sex like they do in the NBA and the WNBA. It keeps the overhead down.
