Please visit and add your comments. There is still not
enough action occurring even though the President of the
Portsmouth Association has responded himself through it. Big
Mac remains convinced that nobody wants to speak to him as
he always seems to speaking to himself. So if for nothing
else, visit the site and say hello to Big Mac.
If you have something that you would like included on the
site, email it to our Webmaster (Ray Lester). Ray has done
a brilliant job of amending the website as soon as I request
