Hello to all, especially new folk who have joined since the summer! Runrig have had their profile raised in several different ways this year, starting with Beat the Drum at Loch Ness.

It would be interesting to know what led you to joining the forum!

I was on the 'Old Board' for about 2 years, but took a long time to actually get posting. I had never been on any other board and found the original link from the website. I 'lurked' around for a brave while, not really joining in until Willie H and a few others started to get really excited at the prospect of Borlum. And I got excited too. I dont think I would have went to Borlum had it not been for the MB and the wonderful people whose posts I enjoyed reading. :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose:

I do believe that I was one of the first 100 members to join the Fan Club and I have always liked to keep up with the Boys news. My parents actually admitted to seeing "The Skyvers" in action. I joined the boards to keep up with things and liked the idea of the "Lively Debates" section. Alas, I have been so disappointed with it so far.....it is not allowed to get lively enough in my opinion. Never mind,you cant have everything in life I suppose.

Long time frequenter of football message boards (Southampton if you must know) and a Runrig fan for nigh on 20 years. Never occured to me that such a message board would exist. After I saw the lads in Soton last month I was searching the Internet for Runrig stuff and there you were!!!

I visit two Runrig message boards regularly. This one and another popular one. Both are great.

I started visiting Runrig messageboards on a regular basis in 2003 having been a fan since 1988 (before the internet and sliced bread were invented)

Hi all!

I´m a listener to runrig music for some years, but went wild with it 2 years ago. This year, I´ve been to the first live acts ever (shame, I know) and it was absolutely great!
As I´m from germany, I joined one concert in autumn, but the absolutely best was going to Loch Ness this year! I´ll never forget this day.......

Greetz, Uwe

@ Uwe:
Herzlich Willkommen und viel Spass hier! :D
***********************************************

I joined the old MB some time in autumn 2006, was sad when it closed (most of you know why), then registered with Crunchie's board, and then with Stamping Ground as soon as it was "born". Try to pop in every now and then to mainly keep me updated on the British side of things. Am using the German scoteire.de forum on a much more frequent basis, though. Loads of fun, I can assure you :D, great fellow fans to share the RR virus with, because where I live I normally hear comments like "Runrig who?" :( Am incredibly thankful I've found such great places to spend my time in! :rose:

Never used a forum before this one. Got interested after using link from official site when keeping up to date with Borlum. Finally took the plunge and registered after a good soaking and a great laugh with fellow riggies.

Joined the old one to see what was going on just before it closed down, and just got redirected to this one! Great to read what fellow fans are up to, on this board and ....the other one!

Been a fan of the music for years but decided to go to Loch Ness to see the band for the first time because I couldn't think of a better place to hear them than in the Highlands. Absolutely loved it but afterwards,as seems usual for a first concert, I couldn't believe how fast it all went, so decided to see them again (indoors!!!) and opted for Barrowlands as it seemed fitting to do the first and last shows for the atmosphere! Came onto the site to get information about Barrowlands as a bit apprehensive about the area etc. Joined with a view of trying to get to know some other fans and will try to get to the meet if time allows.

I'm an old fan (well, I'm younger than the band... :arrow:) and I've never seen them.

As I'm french, I've never tried to join an english spoken forum, this is the first one... I have to admit that the french runrig's fan community isn't very... eeeeeeer... important. (we have a lot of celtics festivals you know, WHYYYYYY didn't they play in france ? We are a very tolerant audience. I'm sure they won't throw them tomatoes... much).

Been a big fan of the Band for many years (since Heartland) but I'm very much of a luddite when it comes to technology being of a venerable age. Why, until recently, I still use a slate and chalk to communicate.
However, once Mrs Hibeemanc pointed out the forum and more importantly, pointed out how easy it was for even the simplest of simpletons to subscribe, here I am.

Been mad about RR music for many years but never expected to get the chance to see them live, so was really excited when I did. Joined the Forum to find out more about live gigs even though I had spied on it and been greatly entertained and informed by you all for some time previously. Great place to be with a real fun friendly lot!
