Well I joined in early 2003. I can see a few that were before me. Grim was in late 2001. I think it started in 2000 ish. I cant remember the guys name that started it. I think it is Mike something. He did the firefighter boats. That 20 yrs ago.....Gees I am getting old.
Cool picture Grim. I remember sending Tom emails when my own website was updated to get more hits. On top in the picture is on of these update notifications.
I dug through my very on old emails and found that I emailed with a guy named Andy Hartz back in 1997 and he was from the International Waters R/C Boating website. Back then the website was hosted on a server from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
Don't know exactly when Tom took over. I joined the forum in january 2002.
