Thanks for the reminder Ron!

Please step up! It takes little more than chatting for an hour twice a
month to serve this great community.

Also, please encourage others! Send them a private email (or public too, I
guess) if you would like to see someone on the Oversight Board.

And lastly, I'd be honored to serve again this year.
