Ok. I thought would be a good spot for this. Since the 250th post is rather important on this site, I felt this thread would be fitting.
:tanzen015:
This is where you can come make your 250th post!

This is it! This is number 250 for me. Once I hit "submit" I become a member of the hallowed tradition of Groupers! :partyguy::metoo::GroupHug:

I forgot all about the $10 certificate. Can we keep that, or does it dissapear when we get the $50?

I probably need to PM Larry to collect it either way.

It seems as though there's some humor to your post...but if anyone was confused, I thought I'd make a comment. It's certainly not meant as an attack or anything of the sort.

Joe and Larry read the forums and know who's contibuting and who's not. But they're a laid back group of guy's and I'd be surprised if this whole gift certficate forum reward doesn't pay them back considerably. Many of the people here are already scubatoys customers and this gives more reasons to complete another order. At the same time, it gives ST a chance to win a customer since they're going to want to use that gift cert. Then when they see the exceptional (and it really is second to none) service that ST offer's...my guess is that they'll be back to buy more. They do a have a loyal following.

Thanks Larry and Scubatoys for the board and the gift certificates. I am sure it will go to good use. Still not sure how to buy a dry suit though online though. I think a trip down there may be in order!

Only 750 more posts to barracuda, which means I should make it some time in February!

Thank you all for congratulating me on my ability to get nothing accomplished around the house on a non-diving weekend!!

Seriously, though I have already gained so much for being a part of this community. Having so many great people to talk to and bounce ideas with in a flame-free forum, is invaluable to me. I greatly appreciate everyone's knowledge, experiences, and even company when I am parked at home by myself in the evenings with norine62 out at rehearsal.

So, really I need to be thanking you.

Congrats man!

Boy, I haven't hardly read any messages today. Been too busy.

That is really awesome man. You conquered your fears to learn to dive, you won the thread of the month contest, and the biggest acheivement of all, you finally became a grouper!!
Would it be cliche for you to go to Disney world to celebrate?

Happy days man. Have fun with that gift certificate.

I started once upon a time, long, long ago as a tadpole before morphing into a little guppy. After many many hours of reading, crying, laughing and replying....

It's actually pretty funny looking at some of the earlier posts, and seeing who stopped at 250, just to get the gift certificate, and who continued to build this community (or those who couldn't stop b/c of the highly addictive properties contained in this forum. )

And looky here, with this post, I hit 600. Yeah me.

Actually, just posting to get the gift Cert is rather lame, but a very effective way to get some money off some great gear. On the other hand, a lot of posts give something for others to help others and inform, so part of everyone's posts is a helping hand to the next person... which is not so bad.
