Waar is al die ou manne.

Postby falconp1 » Wed Aug 30, 2017 7:39 pm

I miss the old microlighters banter. WhatsApp is a closed group. It has its place but can't compare.

Loved Witwillems stories. Waar is jy swaar?

Would be great if anything microlight related be put on the forum ##

This forum used to be sooo busy when I started flying ##

I have Microlighters saved as my home page, just because I love it :mrgreen:

Would be great to get the GEES back on the forum -0<

Kom nou manne, bring die GEES terug, vertel ons al julle stories...we don't judge :lol:

Have a lekka one all s023

Agree Freddie....WhatsApp pretty much killed this forum and although it is very useful for "instant comms"...it severely lacks any form of "history"? With WhatsApp, after a week any and all posts are lost in cyberspace....never to be seen again?
Here things were so much better in that respect? :)
This forum at least allowed people to "go back"....and "reminisce" on past topics?

The good the bad and the ugly! Lol ^

The Tailwinds had the longest thread on here last time I checked....not a single post in months. Even the Facebook page has proved to be a waste of time... :wink:

Isnt it ironic that the more "interconnected" we are on one hand...the more polarized and isolated we become on the other?

Hells bells....nee foktog take me back to the 80's... :lol:

I miss the blissful ignorance of having no phone....the glory days of Guns n Roses...and I really miss my BMX! (!!)

Twas good to catch up with you at PTAR! Well done on a damn fine race.... puff

I still check in now and then too.
Avcom is more active, but activity there has dwindled too.

I remember the days when George Brink (RV4ker) spent all day, on this site, every day!
He was almost always the first to reply to a new topic with meaningful insight. The day his accident was reported here, I knew straight away who the pilot was, because he didn't respond. We were all devastated.

Just a reply to Bundy .

It was great competing against you and Piet. Something I'll never forget. (^^) (^^)

I agree completely with your sentiments. I will endeavour to post more about our adventures. I will also try and get more of our WhatsApp group to chat on microlighters. Not sure how that will go down but I'll try non the less.
