This has been quite an exciting year. It's been alot of fun watching Donkhard grow up from 0. I remember back in the old days when I used to be able to come on every day and actually be able to read every new post... both of them. lol. Now I constantly find myself stumbling across new posts that I didn't even know were here.

The very best part of it all for me has been the friends I've met here. Getting together for our regular games and chatting it up here on the forum has always been a blast for me. Every day I look forward to getting caught up on all that is going on with you guys. I find myself wondering at random times throughout the day how Jim is doing on the blackjack tables ( Very Happy ) or how many final tables Philly has made today.

As for the next year, Donkhard will be closing it's doors soon. Ha ha. Just kidding! We plan to be around for as long as the internet keeps running! We've got some new ideas in the works that should hopefully unfold over the next year. I'm hoping to learn enough about programming to automate a leaderboard system and bring that back into play. I'd also like to add a "staking" section to our forum. And maybe I'll actually get around to awarded NOT a crown sometimes this year. Embarassed

What I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for is the possibility of awarding some donkhard members with some WSOP tickets for 2010, but that's going to depend on how well I can do at the poker tables this year. I've divided up my bankroll in my BR management sheet to now include 3 categories: Poker Money, Spending Money, and Donkhard WSOP Money. Of course I'd like to be able to do Main Event seats, but if not I'd like to at least be able to do some smaller buy-in games with travel and accommodations. I think it would be alot of fun if we can get at least a few of us together in person. Fingers crossed for a kick-donkey year at the tables!

Thank you so much to everyone for being a part of this community and an extra big thanks to the regulars for your priceless friendships. Cheers to another great year on Donkhard.

good investigation work nick, hope i don't ever get on your bad side. i have only been playing online the last 5 months, assumed the forum was older than that. congratulations tbd on the success and continuing success of building this great forum. like you i have also met some great people here and enjoy seeing them succeed and grow as players. there are a few here that if they continue the paths that they are on will be able to supplement their income by playing poker, something i would like to do also. can't wait to be there everytime one of you takes down a big score to help celebrate, thanks for making the forum feel like home.

Sounds really exciting TBD! Looks as though your dream is growing! I hope Donkhard becomes all you want it to be. You are a class act! That being said... I think it's an understatement. Thanks for all you do. Smile Cool
