You've probably been wondering why I decided to open a Rochester Falcons Story section.  I wanted to show how easy and fun it is to look up information within the rfalconcam site.  Please consider helping out with this very important project.   logo

Time to Get the Rochester Falcon History Project Under Way!

Now that winter is almost here, it's the perfect time to start gathering information for the Rochester Falcon History Project.

Below is a list of volunteers.  Please verify by Monday, December 12th if you are still able to help with the project.  If you are not listed and you would like to help out, please respond here by Monday, May 12th.  All help is welcomed. 

After we have our volunteers, each of you will be assigned a "section" to work on.  We will start by assigning a year to each volunteer.  It will be your job to gather information about that year in a central area that all of you will be able to access.

We have set up a Wiki page on PBworks where each volunteer can add information.  Each of you will be sent log in information.  If using the page directly turns out to be a problem for anyone we’ll figure something out.  We’ve set up a sample assignment page, but none of this is written in stone…all suggestions are welcome-giving most volunteers a year to work on.

We think what we need to focus on first is just gathering the information that’s out there into one place.  This is all open for discussion.  For "your year" you would start by going into the postings made in that year on either Kfalconcam (KFC) or Rfalconcam (RFC).  Go through the postings looking for stories, historical tidbits, other interesting factoids and just copy & paste them onto your page.

Examples:
-I just went to July, 2004 on KFC & found a note from Paul Hamilton about Maryann from 2000 with mentions of 2001 & 2002. Rather than figure out where each piece should go, I copied & pasted it in 2004.
-Carol’s Mariah & the school children story just posted on RFC has been copied & pasted in 2011.  There’s no year listed, but it will most likely show up in an old KFC post too from when it happened.

Once everything is gathered, we can figure out when it all happened and put it all where it belongs.  There are other places to hunt for info, but we think a good starting point is our own boards.  Then we can write an actual history.

Thanks so much to all that are able to help out with this project.

I can probably still help out, but not until after the first of the year -- the holidays have me overwhelmed!

I can send a complete copy of my falcon raps from those couple of years when I was writing them. There are a bunch of them and some of them go into quite a bit of detail about some recent M-K-offspring event. I need to compile it into one file, with dates. Where do I send it when it's done? dale

Thanks to Patty from KY, Kris G, Jeanne, Paul and Dale for their offers to volunteer to help with the Rochester Falcons Project.  We realize that the holidays are coming and time is limited for most of us.

Thanks so much Karen!  I'll add you to the list.  Sometime in January, Ei and I will start sending out assignments and the sign-on info for the wiki we'll be collecting all the information.  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
