Panther Pride turns 1 year old today and how far have we come.

It's amazing how far things have come in the last 12 months. I remember many who are here today just moment from learning the old site was closing and left wondering if anything would fill the void.

Despite the short notice, we banded together and started the Panther Pride, it was short on funds, and to be totally honest, I wasn't sure how long it would remain viable. I was dreading the day would come that the plug would have to be pulled only a few months in. But through generous contributions from supporters and the wonderful support from our inaugural year through Dave Snowden at Dirty Pig Clothing and Nadim Joukhadar at Nadim and Co tax Consulting has kept this place moving forward.

I want to extend my thanks to you all, the discussions this year have been brilliant, and the atmosphere has been welcoming. We had taken this year to work out where things stand, where to go forward and what opportunities are present. We have some things ready to roll out during the off season and have ready for the 2014 season, but are open to suggestions on things you would like to see.

We have some competitions next year, possibly a tipping competition, depending on how the feedback goes with our limited trial of the #playingtowine competition, it may be a permanent fixture for next season. We should have some merchandise to announce for the summer, as well as a big competition for the off season with a pretty substantial prize.

We also have some irons in the fire with some potential sponsors to help giving back to you all who give so much here.

Thanks for being with us this season and celebrating our first year. Here's to a great second year and a awesome 2014 season.

Cheers,
Steve

Diddo SAP....Oops that damn blouse won't stay on :P

Steve, in a world where being selfish and arrogant appear the norm these days, I must say your generosity and time to allow us nuffies a place to jibber on is greatly appreciated.

Cheers Champ

Steve, your passion and dedication to the Panthers and the fans has been a marvel. If they had an award for supporter of the year You would be the winner hands down.

You could have easily walked away after the savaging that was dished out but you stayed strong, thank you.

And without the regular diehard tragics this site would not have survived so you all own some of the credit for this milestone so give yourselves a pat on the back you all deserve it.

Your efforts are greatly appreciated, Steve. As are the others who are involved. Good times ahead, it's good to know there's still a place to converse while it happens.

Poor old Jagman still can't get anyone to have a beer with him, eh?
People must think you are a bit of a wrong'n after that mention of sharing a mattress with whoever that was going to have a beer with you that time. Come to think of it, it has got me wondering a bit now... :unsure:
;)

Humble, dedicated and purposeful are 3 words that I think describe Steve and this site.

Everybody plays their part, from regular visitors to the mod team.

Well done on achieving one year. Thank you to Nads and Dave for their kind donations... It does cost money to keep this going.

Unlike previous years, I don't believe we are fully closing down the site, although Steve may jump in and correct me, if I'm wrong.
