Welcome Thread - New Members please announce here!
« on: November 09, 2005, 01:39:04 PM »
This thread will serve to introduce new members as they sign up, but more importantly we'll soon have some Community features built right into the main website, perhaps even with new member lists and ways to view other member's profiles.

Until then, please just say Hi in here, and realize that you may be asked to send more information once we get the community component up and running!!

Let us know what state and area you're from, if you hang with anyone else on the forums, how long you've been practicing, anything really, but start with those basics :)

Hey guys n gals (are there any ladies in here? *shrug*)! I go as ohfomehxr everywhere, but in rl I'm Cliff.

I am part of the Charlotte, NC crew and we're going strong and steady.

This site is a great idea, too. Sure there is a USA section on UFF, but it's pretty slow there and feels more like branch off of the UK tree, or some such analogy. I am excited about solidifying the US community here. Looking forward to participating in our very own home-grown group here!

Hey, too many of you guys are in the upper VA/DC area. I visit my parents in Roanoke, VA which is still like 3+ hrs from you all. Pants! X(

Woa flying shuriken!

Hiya pkusa!

Twitchkidd (Gareth Field) from Huntington, Long Island, New York here. I like gate vaults, and am in fact a cat. Hence my catlike reflexes. Like when you startle a cat and it spazzes out; THOSE catlike reflexes. Hence Twitch.

Awesome job, m2.
