Re: Welcome to z_scale New 'Poll'
- Hi Greg,
I felt that your intro was probably also destined for the group so I
forwarded it to the list. I will add your text to the member intro section
I'm sure that your fellow list members will find a way to help you
accumulate 40-50 cars in no time flat ;-)
Although I didn't mention it in the welcome note, there is often an active
poll for the list. You have joined at a good time since you can vote on a
poll as we speak, so to speak. Go to 'Polls', click on the text of the
question and add your voice to the 17 who have already voted.
Come on Guys and Gals, vote!
Enjoy your new found Z adventure, Greg. The rest of us certainly do!
