its been suggested behind the scenes that there's just too many sections on this forum, and I kind of concur.
some time in the next few days, I'm likely to start folding stuff into fewer categories. Don't worry, I'll move all the posts from the deleted categories into the consolidated section.
In particular, the whole 'Rest of California' section will probably go away entirely as noone is using it. The 'Lounge' will be mostly deleted. Beginners will be folded into a single Beginners section. Imaging Gallery will be folded into TAC Imaging. Annual Star Parties will become a single forum, merged with Calendar/Clubs.
