Re: Charter Members!


Jack, great list!

Note: Sadly, Dusty Rogers died last year, and his collection was sold on the DFO by his nephew.

Re: Charter Members!


I am proud to be a member here.

We have broken new ground in quite a few areas, increased the knowledge of Rogers Drums, busted a few myths and solved many mysteries.

Jack, I thank you for what you have given.

This is a good place.

Re: Charter Members!


As long as we're waxing nostalgic, flash to a couple of months later: in June, here I am wandering around the old Rogers website, minding my own business, trying to sort the porn spam from the drum posts, and Jack found me and rescued me!!

I came to this site, and Ploughman said, "Welcome to Rogers heaven, Tommy."

I've never forgotten that series of events. On that day I was initiated into a league of deeply kindred spirits who appreciate the lost era of proud American craftsmanship, as embodied by a couple of decades of unsurpassed, quality drums.

I know it sounds somewhat "heavy," but the ROF truly--TRULY--changed the course of my life. Someday, you'll know the whole story. Just please understand that, for me, this is a very, very special and important place.

Re: Charter Members!


I have always been proud of my Rogers drums but since I've been on the ROF I learned to appreciate them so much more. AND the wonderful people I've gotten to know.

I give a tip of my hat to the efforts put in by Jack.

Dan, you first joined on June 25th 2008 and did a name change on may 18 2009.

We're glad you climbed into the river with us too!
