Globe of the Month starts soon! - Tue Jan 08 2008 07:53 AM

Hi Guys & Gals;

Globe of the Month will be starting up the week of January 21 after we get back from the Columbia, Missouri Show. As many of you know Aaron and I are the new hosts of Globe of the Month and with Jim Potts blessing we will be making some minor changes. The most noticeable change will be that each topic will run for 2 months. With everyones help we feel we can contribute enough photos and information that we can keep the topic fresh and interesting for 2 months.

The topic for January/February is one that 100s of Oldgas members should be able to contribute to. The topic will be "Your first globe". I have seen some incredible globe collections over the years and every collection whether large or small started with "the first globe". Obviously most of the globes are not going to be that exciting but that is all right. What we would like is for each person post a photo of themselves with their first globe. Hopefully the photos won't scare to many people off! Also include a paragragh or two about why you bought the globe. Many of our collections started with that one random purchase and the stories should make some interesting reading. If you don't have your first globe anymore then submit a photo of the globe that you have owned the longest and why you bought it.

Even if you only own one globe this is a "Globe of the Month" feature that a high percentage of our members can contribute to! Watch the Showcase and Stories Forum the week of January 21 for more details. Good luck with the hunt!

Lonnie
