Damn.. damn.. damn..

I stopped getting updates from the forum and am not sure why

I would have loved to go, please directly email thanks, so I can get info instead of waiting for flaky email bulletins!
No offence Paul, but I notice this trend a lot with many many forums.

We probably won't be having another formal farm tour until late april at least though, so if you want to check us out this year, it'd be best to come asap. Where are you located?
