Hi Michael,


I always appreciated receiving Woody's emails, we will all miss Woody as he
was a pillar of our local car community and a pleasure to hang out with.


Thank you for keeping the WoodyBay site and emails going in memory of Woody,


I thought your email was very well written and made some very good points


Thanks again.


Best Regards,

The "WoodyBay" is a Woody Downing idea to connect the greater San Diego Car
Community since the early 2000s which has expanded over the years to include
most of SOCAL in its reach with upwards of 1000 plus members on this list.
It has always been a one-way mailing list where items and messages to be
shared were all funneled to Woody who would then pass them to the list for
all to view read or trashcan.  With Woody Downing's passing on June 4, 2021,
WoodyBay will continue as a memorial to our friend Woody Downing but looked
after by Mike Brattland, GOB, OTHG and West Coast Willys Club Member and
Woody's old webmaster and friend for 30 plus years.

WoodyBay from today will become interactive which means I have adjusted the
mail list settings so that anyone on this list only may post to the list. If
an individual posts something to the list, all 970 members will see it just
as if I or Woody would have posted before, but it will come from any of you.
If anyone on the list responds to this post, only the person posting the
item will see a response. So, it should mean all of you will see everything
once, but you will not see responses from others on the list to individual

The "WoodyBay" offers the opportunity for list members to share using
woodybay at goodoleboyssandiego.com <mailto:woodybay at goodoleboyssandiego.com>
car related items for sale whether cars and parts, cars for sale, tools,
etc. going forward please stick to sharing historical type things in this
area which Woody would have shared. 

The Calendar will remain alive and well. If you have an event, you want
listed on the calendar, please post that information directly to me, Mike
Brattland mgbrattland at gerlecreek.com <mailto:mgbrattland at gerlecreek.com>   .
As was the case when Woody was with us, he would send an updated calendar
via this list plus give me the revised list which I would upload to his GOB
website. The only change is I will be doing it all now, but in the memory of
our friend Woody Downing. 

Woody Downing was quite conservative and made use of this list to share
politically related items in the news which he felt strongly about. Going
forward every member of this list will have the power via their keyboard to
share in these areas as well if desired so in regard please keep the
following in mind.  Political opinions and discussion from both sides of any
issue or topic will be welcomed here and should be temperate. Opinion or
discussion directed at a list member or members of this discussion group of
a personal nature are not welcomed or will be appreciated on WoodyBay. 

The "WoodyBay" is a closed and moderated discussion list. New members may
join Woodybay list may join the list via www.goodoleboyssandiego.com
<http://www.goodoleboyssandiego.com>  . Existing members can leave WoodyBay
at any time using normal list procedures laid out in individual list emails
and on www.goodoleboyssandiego.com <http://www.goodoleboyssandiego.com>  or
by sending a note to the moderators. 

The admin/moderator for the "WoodyBay" is CDR Michael G. Brattland, USN
(Ret.), mgbrattland at gerlecreek.com <mailto:mgbrattland at gerlecreek.com>
and I will be adding several other car community folks from the car club
community as well as moderators.

Overall recommendation for sharing on the WoodyBay list is to keep to it
Cars related items events, etc..leave some of the other things to other
social media!  


So go for it. If you have something for the WoodyBay list go ahead from this
point and post it directly..any of the 970 current menbers to
woodybay at goodoleboyssandiego.com <mailto:woodybay at goodoleboyssandiego.com>
