OK, Ronan was banned 6 days ago. I'm assuming it's one of the regular 7-day bans and he'll be back in action soon enough. That's why he hasn't been in here hitting on the new girl yet. lol Figures!
And yeah, I'm a newcomer to this sport too. Started out just as an air gun collector, but my interests have expanded. Going to my first game in just over 3 weeks and really looking forward to it. So for the next few weeks, I still hold the rank of "chairsofter".
