2016 will be the final year for the Blue Agave Forum. It's really be superseded by social media and Facebook pages. It's been a good run - I started this in 2003 (as I recall). But, sadly, membership and use have dropped the past few years. There are other ways to connect online. If anyone wants to take it over, and wants to pay the domain renewal and software fees, contact me. They're not a lot, but I'm retired now, and need to trim some costs. I will archive the database and make it available to members who might want to go back through it. Again, contact me for details. Thanks everyone for your participation. Ian

This is very sad news, I would hate to see this forum go away. Hopefully someone will step up and take over it. Possibly one of the moderators?

Hi Ian- I am willing to cover the costs and take over... Let me know what it would take to do this... AND thank you so much for doing this, you are my agave guru.

Thanks for your support, everyone. It seems we have some champions who are willing (and, I hope, eager) to take over the forum. I'll post more in the next few days about it...

Lots of good memories here and learned so much. Thank you Ian for what you accomplished here with the forum and promoting agave spirits through the years.
