After a long and good run, we have come to the difficult decision that it is time to close the Collector Forums.

Over the years these Forums have been around we have seen many people come and go. We have often been an extended family. There have been so many long term friendships made. I know that I still travel with friends I have made through lighthouses and Harbour Lights.I have been fortunate enough to travel to the corners of North America with friends I made here on the Forums.

These Forums have provided a conduit for members to make plans with each other for a variety of things. Maybe meeting up at a Bill store event. All the fun trips and gatherings at Rosemont. Gathering at regional events for fun and visiting lighthouses together. One of the great things was that often folks shared their trips so that others might use their itinerary for their own trip. I know I used someone else's adventure to have my own and I also tried to write up my trips so others might benefit. Or, vicariously take the same trip with me.

The Forums will close sometime in late May, just a few weeks from now. Take your last trips through the archives and remember all those fun times we had together. So many have contributed to the upkeep of the Forums along the way. I can't name them all, but we have had some dynamic people step up and contribute. Among these are some of the long serving Saints (administrators) including Paul Brady, Rich Felter and Daniel Kirsch. Along the way we were able to produce two special edition Harbour Lights, the Erie Land Light and Wisconsin Point. And the Bailey's Harbor Range Light set that was produced for our event in Door County. Not too bad for a bunch of Wackos.

Thanks to all who have contributed to the Collector Forums and made it such a great site over the years.

The site may go dark for a few days, but please check back. UBB, the provider of our forum software, is going to take over the site and keep it available for all, at least for a while.
