QuoteIs there to be a Super-Duper-Official-One-Week-Group-Build this year?  It generally goes off in July or August, so time is drawing near....

Yes there is....the date should be announced real soon.  I am having surgery in the near future, but I haven't got the date yet and being in limbo is screwing my life up big style - holidays, shift patterns, and of course the 5th Annual 1 Week Group Build

 What happened to the floatplane/flying boat GB forum? It seems to have vanished.

Try this:clicky

You have to go to the 2009 Group Builds part of the menu at the bottom. This may be due to the fact the GB ended May 31st. Now all we need is some way to have our votes tallied so the winners can be determined.

It may be a little early, but has the Secret Santa GB officially kicked the bucket?  If so, any ideas for a different festive GB?

Ouch, hope everything goes okay Nev.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Yes.  The first one was a raging success, so we did another one, and that was very subdued, so it was dropped as an annual thing.  Greg talked about reviving it, but I don't think it ever got past the talk stage.

Thanks mate, I'm having me Gall Bladder out the day after the Coventry show (29th)....expect announcement on the 1WGB soon!

Thanks for covering my lazy butt, Brian.

Oof...  Yes, I've been absent, but felt guilt as all get out about suddenly disappearing.  Look for a new GB poll for 3 new GB's later this week.

Hi, Mildly new here, Is there a requirement for being in a GB? A skill level or a forum grade or the like?
