*Shows off special decorations* Welcome to a very special Founder's Day Friday Fiesta! Can't Post

Greetings, everyone!

If you've noticed that the bar is especially well decked-out today, it's because this is a very special day! It's the beginning of our weekend-long founder's day celebration! Yep, TORn was founded 16 very fun years ago by four very special people:

Heart Corvar, Xoanon, Calisuri and TehanuHeart



As if that wasn't enough to celebrate, the new message boards turned eight years old on April 17th! So, help us wish Happy Birthday to the boards!



We're also hoping to have some friends join us this weekend who have been all too scarce around here lately. To all of you: a very warm welcome back! We reserved very VERY comfy chairs by the fire or the pool just for you - whichever you prefer. SmileHeart

Be sure to check out the various boards for special Founder's Day features and activities all weekend long, particularly Main, Off-topic and Feedback (partial list below). Look for the threads with **FD in the subject lines. In particular, check out the Thank You to the Founders poem by Brethil which will be on Feedback, and the Get to Know You thread by Kel which will be here on Off-topic. Most of all, here at Fiesta, don't forget to toast to 16 years of TORn, to 8 years of the new boards, to old returning friends and to those that are absent for whatever reason.

*kicks juke box* Celebration by Kool and the Gang starts to play

Happy Founder's Day weekend, everyone!! CoolLaugh

A partial list of Founder's Day features and activities:

MadLibs on Main (Grey Elf/Jayne) and Off Topic (Bracegirdle/Geoff)
Picture Quiz (dormouse/Charlotte), Main (?)
