Re: Lights out at the "Pub"

Maybe Mr. Bill Schaumburg (a fixture at RPM meets) will continue
with some other RPM enterprise?

Think of how the retail world has changed -- "department stores" have
been replaced by big box discounters and specialty stores. Publications
like MR and RMC are kind of the equivalent of dept stores, while RPCYC
and the Speedwitch pubs are the equivalent of specialty stores. Most
STMFC'ers probably want to get straight to the RPM stuff and don't want
to have to walk past aisles of baby clothes, shoes and household goods
to reach the resin kits and superdetail parts!

One chapter ends, and another begins.

Colleagues,

It has been a great run and it is lights out at Carstens Pub by 5:00
p.m. I will close out my term here of nearly 38 years with the
following from Doug Adams, who wrote it around the time I came to RMC:

"So Long, and Thanks for all the fish."
