GSN Purchased by New Owner

    It's not easy to walk away from something...
    that you've put so much time and effort into. A lot of you understood that and offered your support for GSN in emails last night which is very much appreciated.

    And so it came as a huge surprise shortly after our announcement last night to receive an email from Paul Gentile, owner of 3DX Hobbies and President of the very flying club that I belong to asking if I'd sell GSN to him! YES! I didn't even know he's a member at the site as he never posts and I don't bring up the site at club meetings!

    Paul's been flying RC planes since the 80's and he's also the former owner ofCNCzone.com so he knows the forums business very well. Best of all, he's close by and welcomes my assistance so I've asked to stay on as a moderator.

    Paul is taking ownership of everything associated with the site effectively immediately. We'll be working on the transition over the next couple of weeks but it's a done deal;


    AND I'M VERY HAPPY TO SAY THANK YOU TO PAUL FOR STEPPING UP. As he put it last night, "I'd hate to see it go away."

    I'm very sorry for the 24 hours of drama I've put you through, I hope you can forgive me and carry on with us at GSN, it's going to be great!

    I can't tell you guys what a relief it is to see a buyer step up so quickly and again I'm very sorry for the drama.

    NO ONE can blame you for putting your "real job" and family first. I am not terribly active on this forum but enjoy it when I come by. You don't know what you got till its gone. It will encourage me to spend more time here. Thanks for the effort and money spent on putting this together for all of us.
