    Is the website pretty much no longer used? I can’t load the master Spaatz list off of it and sent an e-mail to the webmaster without a reply. I only found this page by searching on Google. Is there thought about taking that site down and redirecting to this one? Thanks, Jay #851

    • Mike Hower says :


      We are actually in the process of taking down the old site and redirecting to this address. All of the new has been on since 1 Dec 11.
