We have been plotting and planning changes, with the first being released in our April Cybercrop and what a success that was, the inner competitor came out in you all. We were blown away with the participation, and the comments. Just thought I would share some Comments from the Forum regarding the new format…

“I certainly enjoyed scrapping under this new format, found it far more fun
& less stressful - so thank you Sonia & the DT for the change.

“the competitive side of me is here too and loving that points
system! I haven't been here to FA before, I just found it on Friday looking for
a cyber crop, but I must say it is very friendly and very organised so I will be
hanging around (If no one objects of course!?!) ”

Next big event for us is the May Retreat just 2 short weeks away – we still have spaces…why not come and play.

We hope that you enjoy May’s cybercrop, we are running it in conjunction with our RETREAT, with lot’s more fun and frivolity with games galore and an extra day of playing too. We can’t have our stay at home scrapper’s missing out!!!
