To spend time to compose a song to show you are barmy = barmy, no doubt.

Wait, what? If I understood it well, no songs nor champagne?
If someone could help me in german translation, I'll apply to the teutonic chapter, then!

actionjoe, your song most assuredly speaks to your barmy qualifications and I give my vote as well. As to the champagne, we do stock it at the bar but most of the BOC members don't drink it due the fair amount of jostling that occurs throughout the course of any given evening's events. The fizz tends to be uncontrollable, and more so once inside the body than out. None-the-less, if it's champagne you want then it's champagne you shall have - it's your gastrointestinal tract.

Sorry for the delayed response, I've been busy with another video and I usually pay little attention to the world around me. I will happily buy a round (or two) for those who are thirsty. I'm partial to Guinness, Shiner Bock and tawny port. What'll ya'll have?

Thanks to all the esteemed members who have accepted me into this fine outstanding club. As I have stated before drinks all around and place the bill at my station. Thanks to all!

Salute Gents,

I've long enjoyed the fruits of the great giving tree that are OFF, WOFF, mods, and the community.
Although short stints I've made in being involved/active in the forums, they're overshadowed by longer periods of "lurking" in the background and following/reading the on-goings of the game & community.
I went up to the Dayton Dawn Patrol Rendezvous and had the great pleasure of meeting some folks I've known only in forums. (Wiggins, Louvert, Stache, Hauksbee to name a few). As per my usual strategy in the WOFF community, I found the WOFF tent and lingered around performing observation haha.

I would humbly throw my credentials for membership in for review, and after some good chuckles relating to the "requirements" and telling my wife across the hall (whom acknowledged my snickers with rolled eyes and head shakes), I felt it necessary to submit myself.

As far as the listed prerequisites, I find myself worthy of recognition for the following:
1 , 2 , 4 , 5 , 10, 13 , 14 , 20.

To go further with things I feel should be listed:

  • When introducing myself as "Jenks" to WOFF or ROF players(RAF28Jenkins for you RB flyers Sopwyth, wink wink wave2 ), I refer to my flying credentials/history of RBII/RB3D and my tournament accomplishments
  • I literally wear my "lucky" scarf when I fly WOFF or ROF. The few times i've forgotten or omitted to my flight s have ended most distastefully
  • I talked my IL2 lan party buddies into playing OFF over our LAN. It worked. It was fun...For me.
  • I Photoshop'd my mug onto a period photo for my DiD Campaign pilot. Because stock photos just weren't immersive enough.
  • I too have composed musical works in reflection to WOFF. Although not on the level of Matt Milne for sure.
  • For those who loose a child, they may wish to adorn their loved one's gravestone/marker/etc with angels, or a lamb. My son received a bronze Se5 scout with the caption "Soaring High In Our Hearts". I know he loves it. smile He's watching my six. Final Preview below.


It would be a great honor to join the ranks of the BOC, and I appreciate your consideration. If still available Louvert, i'll gladly pay the cost for the pin/shipping.

Thanks much,

I for one most heartily recommend RAF28JENKS as a member and look to the membership for affirmation! I am polishing the cricket bat in anticipation and re stocking the bar.

What say you all?

Jenks, you are most assuredly qualified for membership in our less-than-illustrious group and it is my pleasure to welcome you to the BOC. A bar tab has been started in your name and will be appropriately abused by your fellow club members during the ensuing initiation ceremony. And to that end, Robert - the bat.

Also Jenks, my most heartfelt condolences on the loss of your son. I've no doubt he is now your angel wingman keeping watch. May we all fly together one day across the eternal skies in God's Squadron.

Couldn't say it any better than Lou already has - welcome to the club, Jenks!

I believe that the ones who left for the stars and beyond, would not want that we suffer.
Measured on eternity, it will be our own turn only a little later.

Tender, a round for all these barmy men - I guess we could do with some of your best whiskey!

Well, as usual I'm late to the party! But a hearty welcome to Jenks, whom I had the great pleasure to meet at the Dawn Patrol.

I'll take a shot of that, Olham! And will add my voice to what you and Lou have so nicely stated, as I also have a grandchild waiting for us, and enjoying our glorious hereafter. It's a horrible thing to go through, but we don't sorrow as those who have no hope. The longer I live, the more real Heaven is to me; eternity is written on our hearts. I hope that brings some comfort, as Olham says, your son wants you to live, really live, as he is doing now. You'll be together again.

A hearty welcome Jenks as well as a heartfelt round of prayers for you and yours. Lou said it so gracefully as always. I noticed the date on your son's stone my grand-daughter was born the day before. I no I can never know you pain, but I do know the love you must have felt for your son. I know he is watching over you know.

Gentlemen,

My sincerest thanks for the kind thoughts and words. Forgive me that I have no words of weight in response. I'm glad to join (formally) the BoC ranks and am happy to report the badge adorns my flying cap for each time my wheels leave the ground. Given the chance in the future, I'll gladly buy a round for the lads and sing a hearty tune to carry the mood for the evening.

Warmest regards,


RAF28Jenks

I couldn't have said that better, Lou. Jenks, I am so very sorry.

I also apologize for my tardiness and would also like to welcome you to our illustrious outfit!

A round for Jenks and the rest of the lads, on me!

cheers

Sing? Sing? By George I've got to learn some WWI drinking songs for the next get-together!

(Background - I'm as outgoing and goofy as my wife is proper, retiring, and quiet. So we're out on the bike trail on a beautiful day, when we get to a place where no one can see where it's coming from, I bellow in full baritone voice a line from an old Tony Bennett song, "I-I-I-I-I-T'S THE GOOD LIFE!". My autistic son cracks up laughing and my wife mutters "big mouth...", which cracks him up again.) I do like to sing...!

Have another round, me'boys! beercheers
