    Default Chris A. / Howard

    This may be a dumb idea, but the words on Howards thread that I kept reading over and over were, "One of the good guys", "Missed", "Helpful". I was wondering how feasible it would be to make a thread called simply Howard's Thread- A sticky, always near the top, dedicated to a particular theme that's strictly training related.For instance, a place where everybody posts their photo/diagrams of setups for sharing and critique? Something that could stay civil, helpful, and in memory of all of Howards time here. Maybe years from now, inevitably, some newbie will ask "Who's Howard?" and someone can respond "He was one of the Good Guys".


    I don't want to put Chris on the spot, as this might not be feasible. Just an idea.

    Or Chris could say "be a Howard" instead of "be a peanut" when performing janitoral duties.

    Actually, I was thinking it would be nice to compile his posts of his drills, and put it as a sticky at the top of the page. Not everyone's just his.

    I wish someone would do something like this for Unca Jerry, too. Another legend, but before my time. I think most of his gems got lost in the purge.

    I think a Howard N. Memorial thread is a GREAT idea. Either Lesters or Susans ideas are excellent.

    I can think of about 4 more that would need to be done. Richard Halstead, Bob Gutermouth, Uncle Jerry, the swishy one of course he's not dead but Stacy has him changing diapers so much he might as well be
