    Yep. There's lots of web and IT expertise floating around here if and when it makes sense to share the load.



    Good to know the community stepped up. And I, for one, learned that it would probably be better to donate sometime before the end of the year instead of in the spring, since the GSR accounting is based on a calendar year. Never really thought about that.

    Another thing I'll mention is that folks selling parts could be encouraged to consider donating part or all of the proceeds once in a while. Lots of us have had parts on the shelf for decades that really could use better homes, so it would be relatively painless. Sometime this winter I'll have a good rummage through my stash and see what I can part with.

    Glad to hear it Frank! Mine's still to come (awkward time between pay days) but rest assured it will be there, although our lousy $AU will take a bit away at the moment. Thanks for all your efforts looking after the forum for us too!

    I have always donated at the beginning of the year. Is this no longer the right way or time to do it? Since I donated in Jan. 2019 and again in Dec. 2019, I am thinking I will hold off until next year in November to donate.

    Frank,
    Please tell us when is the proper time for donations.

    Sorry Norm, I don't have your address. Maybe you can hit me up for that donation in June at the Brown County event.
