Greetings my fellow LAM-ers,
Last month marked both the 2 year anniversary of LAM and several worthy milestones in terms of growth and activity. Over 100 of you joined our community throughout October 2010, more than had joined in any other month since LAM's inception October 2008, and exceeding 10% in terms of total members, pushing us above 1000 members in all. We also experienced the highest number of total hits, exceeding the previous highest month by over 7,000 and topping 28,000. Since October 2008, we've been visited by folks in every major populated continent, and at least 85 countries. I sincerely thank all of you for your presence and contributions to LAM, making it the community it is today.
To celebrate and mark this 2nd anniversary, we will hold a drawing this Friday to give out 2 copies of the excellent documentary, "In the Shadow of the Temple". All you need to do to enter the drawing is reply to this thread to state your interest. The drawing will take place live, via Webcast here on LAM, during the Friday Night Chat Party on 11/12/2010 at 9:00 pm MST (11:00 pm EST). You do not need to be present to win.
For those of you in Utah, I am considering hosting a gathering at my house in Springville, Utah County but need to estimate how many would come before committing, since you all may overwhelm the space in my house. Local gathering is proposed to begin at 7:30pm and go until 11pm and include activities such as Rockband, hot tubing and of coarse, BYOB drinking. Please indicate in your reply if you are interested in such a gathering and if interest is reserved (10-20 people), we'll go forward with it. We may have to seek a venue for a larger gathering in the future, if interest is sufficient.
Again, thank you for being a member of our community,
