Hi Everyone,

My name is Frank and I'm the new GM of the Kalamazoo Badgers. A warm welcome to all the other new GM's in the league. I have been involved with OOTP in one way or another since OOTP4, but have spent most of the past year away from it entirely, and it's been a few years since I've been in any online league. So, I'm essentially a noob. O:-)

On a personal level, my midlife crisis involves spending too much on Lego and board games. I live in Portland, OR with my wife and three kids.

Welcome, Frank!

K-Zoo has a great system to work with and after last season the only way to go is up!

And if Lego and board games are the signs of a midlife crisis, then I must be an early bloomer.

Welcome, Frank!

I'm with you on the Lego front. I just keep buying it, even though I haven't built anything significant in a while...

Welcome Back Frank. I think Frank is being modest. It's great to have some experience behind the K-zoo franchise!!

Thanks, all, for the warm welcome. There's a lot of work to be done in the Zoo.

Welcome back Frank! I don't want to out anyone, but I know of at least one other pacific northwest lego enthusiast in the league! :lol:

Looking forward to seeing K-Zoo back in the mix!
