Subject: [CR]Proposal to the CR membership; CR vs Wool Jersey

I'm reading the many responses to Kim's initial letter and offer the following proposal to the CR, and members can put together an offer if one can be put together, that is if Dale is agreeable and the CR Members would be willing to provide sufficient compensation for my time.

As most CR Members know I've relocated to the Midwest and busy with Real Estate studies. In the time being I'm unemployed and getting itchy to get back to work. I would be willing to help Dale out updating his site in any way I can, assembling information, updating photos, some research if needed, linking to other sites etc, and inputting it all to the site & essentially whatever it takes to get the site updated.
