The longest running active Wing Commander Club, the WC Aces turned eight years old this April 15. I'll leave it to one of the club's founders to sum it up.
It's April 15, 2003Congratulations! When I was a new kid in the Wing Commander scene in 1995 & 1996 I can remember being awed by this massive organization of Wing Commander fans. You weren't cool unless you had "WCA-" before your name. I'll be looking forward to wishing them another happy birthday next year. You can find the Acenet Posting Board here.
I Just want to wish every member a Happy Aniversary. This club's lasted 8 years now to the date and I hope it continues to last and hold interest for WC gamers, designers and writers worldwide.
We've got a hell of a history, legacy and hopefully a hell of a future. I'll try to be on ICQ and AOL instant msg a lot today to answer questions about the founding of the club and the early history for those who don't know about it and have questions....and for the Aces vets who want to talk war stories. :)
Another note though...... I'd like to dedicate this aniversary to one of our strongest members....... Raptor. He's the man who's busted his ass over the years to keep things together here and keep the club functioning. He's HTL coordinator, mailing list manager, advisor for the new guys and friend to everybody. I think on this occaision he deserves some kudos as well as the admiration and respect of everyone on the list he maintains so damn well.
Please make a following post to his honor and give this guy a toast.
