The mission statement was written in collaboration with the users along with other pages and parts, such as the menu on the left, the forum pages, the lake maps page, the best of the forums page... all written from member suggestions. We like to include our members into the actual development and direction in which this site might go. A suggestion is made and then users have the ability to vote on whether the change should be implemented or not. We like it this way and will continue to use the users in determining where this site ends up. Keeps everyone guessing, eh?
