The Barmy OFFers Club

Throughout the annals of history people of like purpose and intent have gathered together in efforts to share and strengthen their common ideals and to strive in unison towards extraordinary goals. The Knights Templar, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, and other such ancient assemblies have used the combined abilities and fortunes of their members to attempt broad sweeping and long-lasting changes around the globe. Their greatness and power were and are inextricably tied to their like-mindedness and shared zeal, and because of this they became far greater than the sum of their individual parts.

The Barmy OFFers Club is nothing like this. We are a daft group, though rather clever and creative, who happen to share the same obsession for the marvelous WWI aerial combat flight sim, 'Over Flanders Fields'. We do not imagine for an instant that we will alter the course of world history, apart from the bygone years of 1914 through 1918 in which our many virtual selves fly and fight and live and die. Since we are a bit over-the-top we do things on occasion that are considered by those not of us to be...well...barmy. Furthermore, we don't look upon these things we do as a negative but rather more a badge of honour. Because of this shared skewed outlook we have been drawn together with others who not only understand but actually appreciate such daftness, as they suffer from the same wonderful instability themselves.

Are you such an individual? Do you lack the grip on reality it takes to become one of the BOC? If you think you qualify then we encourage you to apply for membership in this less than illustrious yet somehow elite group of halfwits. Read through our charter and post your qualifications below. Prove to us just how round-the-bend you are for OFF and you too can have your name added to our 'Roll Call Of The Barmy'. Dues will be collected in the club bar on the first Saturday of each month, (and if you believe for even a moment that there actually is a club bar you are closer to qualifying for membership in the BOC than you might realize).

Anything that uses the Dodo bird for a mascot is something I'm interested in...

You would have been proud of us Honorary members (Pol, Sandbagger and I) when we all geeked out at the Hendon RAF museum. I am convinced the museum manager was content with just leaving us there as we knew more than anyone in the whole place... but he could see my eyes fixed on that D.Va and must have know I would have jumped in it and took off as soon as he turned his back.. with Sandbagger grabbing the SE5a, and Pol in the Fee.

Ahh.... nothing better that the era of the WWI Biplane. smile

#25. You believe and follow Dicta Boelcke as not only a strict guideline for aerial combat, but a guideline for all aspects of life outside of WOFF.

Yeah, I can imagine THAT only too well!
How the poor man was sitting on glowing coal with you lot in his fine collection!

Should you ever visit THE VINTAGE AVIATOR together, I'm sure Peter Jackson would quickly hire
a hundred Orcs and position them as a "life guard" around you as long as you are in there.

Oooo, talk of Albs and SE5s and Fees and The Vintage Aviator, very nice! But I must interrupt such banter for official club business.

(Lou ducks at this point as anything of proper throwing size that isn't nailed down is hurled at him with the accuracy only practiced inebriation can provide.)

HA! You all missed. Now then, MFair has petitioned for membership into our little group. I for one say he's qualified and then some simply by asking to be included in this lot. A round of 'ayes' are in order don't you think, followed by a round of drinks on our newest victim.

All in favour say AYE!

Another foo...ler ah, individual has made known his desire to join our ranks. What say you all to Nietzsche becoming one of the daft, the touched, the barmy? Aye says I! Yet another bar tab to take advantage of, me thinks.

Oh, and seems I'm neglect in mentioning Raine's desire to join up as well. When it rains barmy, it pours. Aye again, says I! This is developing into a potentially epic blow-out.

As per the original post in this thread, you need only ask and state your qualifications as noted in our charter. In your case lederhosen it would simply be a formality as you are quite clearly one cylinder short of a rotary.

You bring up an important point. I have a German pilot, "Rex von Schnaups" that I use to demonstrate WOFF to my brother in law (also named Rex, coincidenatlly). He's always absconding with the Baron's triplane, to which the Baron spits, "Er wei nicht einmal steigen 'bekloppt.' Er ist nur ein Idiot."

(with apologies to the real German speakers here, that was Google translate. I jad "barmy" in quotes, which came out "bekloppt.")

Salute

Dear Sirs, Madams or hermaphrodites,

After reading through the list I believe I qualify to be a member under articles 1,3,4,15,19,20 and 24 of the charter, and wish to register my application to join this very fine group of equally daft people.

danke
