Boy, does that bring back memories. I remember the Ovation "Portal", where you had to answer a question about the 97 Collectors to get in. I was excited about it, then it didn't do anything, and finally, it disappeared. And there was nothing until the OFC showed up. Hard to believe it's been 6 years....

This site started in 2002? Wow. This one and the new Tak sites are the only on-line forums I ever visit. Thanks, Al and Miles, for your vision. I still consider myself a newbie and just a part-time contributor. I write all day long so these forums prodvide an opportunity to take a break and read stuff for fun. In addition, some of the members are not only knowledgeable and caring, there are also some seriously funny and clever contributors as well. Some of you could easily take the place of the writers on strike in Hollywood.

As you see I am a new comer here.
I'm a long time Ovation lover but I've had the chance to join this forum only mid of this year and I have to say I've lerned a lot from you guys.... a lot of Os history, technics and ..... humor.
Going through the forum has become a daily "must" for me.
Have a peaceful 2008 !!

Oddly enough, I've heard that term aLOT in my life (in numerous circumstances).
I think the biggest thing that I've come away with is the number (and level) of true FRIENDS that I've made here . . that in itself, is priceless.
Yeh, . . . we're often known t'get "off-track" . .
But if we adhered to strict guidelines, and the "straight & narrow", we'd be just like any of the OTHER snooze-fest guitar-forums out there that we find THIS place so "different" from (and keeps bringing us "back" to) . . .

-"Jersey had a decent reputation"
-"Jerry Garcia was my Hero"
