Re: Newsletter Copy Deadlines for 2017

Thanks everybody for the feedback on our first newsletter. Great to hear from everybody. Copy deadline for the next issue is June 16 and I'm hoping to go a little earlier than that based on how long it took for everybody to get their last issue. I want the next one in the mailboxes well before the J...

Re: Where are the Piet Folks Based...?

Hello All, I am in eastern Iowa and starting to embark on my first adventure building a Pietenpol. First thing I've noticed is the plans don't cover everything so I guess there must me a good deal of improvising. I hope everything works out for me and this doesn't take a lifetime to finish. LOL Ken...

Re: Digests

The extra digest e-mails today are probably coming from some work we were doing earlier this morning, importing some of the old Matronics posts. It should calm down after today.

Sorry for the extra spam.

Digests

Hi All, I have added a feature that many have asked for, called "Digests." Once set up, you can receive an e-mail each day showing posts that have been made in the previous 24 hours. This means you don't have to visit the forum and look for new posts...they come to you. Go to your User Control Panel...

Re: New forum

I am not a Luddite, but I'm still snooping around to figure out how things work here too. I'm used to seeing the icon next to a forum topic be a distinctive color, or blinking, or some other way to let me know there is a new post or posts in that topic thread that I have not read yet. Same for new ...

Something like an hourly van run to anywhere in town...restaurants, grocery store, etc. It would probably run Friday and Saturday, all day. Would any of you all use ...

Re: New forum

Thanks to Pat Weeden and the Brodhead Airport friends who are starting this new forum. I have enjoyed - and been assisted by - the Matronics site, and even dabbled with the Facebook site, but this "by Pieters", "of Pieters", and "for Pieters" seems like a better way to keep the communications focus...
