Now let this be a warning to all ye fellows whom venture into parts unknown in search of parts unknown. ... Beware the siren songs of SWMBO! 🧜‍♀️ 🎶 “Stop playing with the clothespins and do the laundry!” 🎶🎶🎶

They're easy to make Mark. I have made quite a few different tools over the years out of clothes pins. They are a pretty handy item.

Thank you Mike. I like to keep bits and pieces of whatnot on hand just for such projects. You never know what is going to come in handy.

Thanks,
Randy

I might try to make that as well, one of these days.

I’m not sure but I think this campaign has ended. I have no idea about the ribbon or anything... I believe Jun was the last month.

Matt,
I don't seem to have ribbons for BAT IV or BAT V. I just picked up on the fact that I never got any photos posted to the galleries, but on the other hand, I haven't found the galleries. Can someone post a link, please?

Hmmm, I go in to award them, and it says you have them.... Some sort of bug perhaps???

I misspoke--BAT IV is there (I just didn't recognize it). BAT III is also there, but I don't see V. Weird. Not a big deal.

Anyway, thanks for another fun and informative campaign!

Matt

Slightly off topic.... is anyone administering the Armorama campaigns in John P's absence?

I have sent a proposal up twice in the last couple of months and still have not heard back on it... '20/20 in 2020' is the proposal.

I think the issue was using the ribbon in Randy's post. It is not the right size of format. It needs to be 50 x 20 pixels and a .gif file. Like this:

Maybe you will need to talk to Richard (Gulf Warrior) about setting up a retrospective group build enlistment page so the ribbons can be added from there?
