HogLog MAJOR UPDATE!!!
We just migrated the old HogLog mail list to a new and improved Google Group, titled, appropriately, 480TFS HogLog. “Legacy” HogLog members have received their invite to the new Group. YOU SHOULD JOIN. Simply point your browser HERE. Follow the directions (a major task for some of us) and you’ll be ready to ridicule, abuse, and, yes, sometimes edify, Warhawks of all ages as the Reunion approaches. DO IT TODAY!
We’ve also conveniently embedded the HogLog in a page on this web site. No excuses for not joining in TODAY!
