New Directing Staff
« on: January 04, 2007, 22:16:51 »
Congrats to Good2Golf, cdnaviator and Vern being selected as Directing Staff. All three bring multiple years of experience from the CF within their trades/elements and their personal lives that will only help this forum in the future. They will help enforce everyone is kept within the guide lines set by Mike, keeping this a well informed site that I am interested in.

Congrats (and maybe condolences) to three upstanding members for being chosen DS.  May they direct with fairness and friendship.

I'd like to thank cdnaviator, Good2Golf and The Librarian (evermore known as Vern despite her name change ;)) for volunteering their time and experience to help us out. They help to round out a very capable team that has done a fantastic job in building this site up to what it is today. As Good2Golf said when he saw the Staff board: it's like a duck, calm and serene on the surface, but paddling like hell underneath.

Good job and thanks to all Staff, old and new.

Oh look, Tess has posted a pic of Vern stirring the pot. Thanks for that bud.

And thanks for your post Fdtrucker, I will certainly do my best. As for the ducks and and the paddling Mike, apparently I may not float, but I am a lifeguard!!

Since Brihard's PMs are full of good wishes on being elevated to the lofty heights of becoming a DS  ;D

I thought it was appropriate to not mention anything in this thread about that very fact.

Though if I was to put words in Brihard's mouth, I would quote Brian Harding's terrific post here, from a few years ago.

Since Vern does not float, we now have definitive proof that she is not a witch. ;D

[I need a blushing bride emoticon] Agreed, I misspoke Roy vice Brian.

I did not mean to imply that Roy was our newest DS,
rather that Roy's acceptance speech, should fit well in Brihard's mouth,
if I would be allowed to put words there.  ;)

Well, thanks for that Tess. Now 'Goodbye horses' will be in my head all night.

One of my funnier absurd memories... Walking into one of my troops' rooms a few summers back on tasking. My suspicions immediately aroused by hearing that music, sure enough, there he was wearing nothing but a CF raincoat and with everything tucked back in aerodynamically sound fashion, and quoting that famous line of the movie to me.

I left his room. It could wait.
