Although I had heard of SOAP for a number of years, Lew Sponagle was instrumental in my joining the flock. Stonewall5@Prodigy. net will put people in touch with me as the "notebook travels.

I vote for keeping SOAP as it is and developing a way to integrate those that don't consider themselves as "Pioneers." Remember, some of us grew up on Light Guns and HF frequency etc. and others grew up with Cell Phone attached!
