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 900 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 has 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 posts.
The “WoodyBay” offers the opportunity for list members to share using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org , car related items for sale whether cars and parts, cars for sale, tools, etc. including car event announcements, car, hot rod, racing related items including media/videos going forward. If car related, that is what is to be shared here going forward. Leave all other topics to other forums please. Keep it simple and on topic.
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 email@example.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.
For now on, since there are as many on one side of the coin as the other side of the coin, no more anything not car related including political, jokes, etc. It is time for change and personally Claude Smith and I do not have the time to be referees of who said, she said, take me off the list, I am staying on the list anymore. Such topics are history as of 4th of July weekend. Going forward every member of this list will have the power via their keyboard to share in the car related areas. Political opinions and discussion from both sides of any issue or topic will not be welcomed here. Consistent off charter posts will see you removed. If car related stuff does not work for you, by all means remove yourself from the list. Opinion or discussion directed at a list member or members of this discussion group of a personal nature is not welcomed or will be tolerated on WoodyBay.
