I would just like to also welcome this evening a friend of many including myself, Mr Alan Rik.
Alan, to those who may not be aware, is an extremely knowledgeable and respected long term collector who I truly regard as a friend of mine.
He and I share much of the same opinions in this crazy world of Super 8mm, and I know that others will benefit extensively from Alan's knowledge and considerable experience in the hobby. He is also someone who has a passion for top quality films and has had and continues to own, some of the very finest equipment out there!
Alan, I know you will be a true asset to this forum my friend.
