Preserving history for tomorrow- time well spent 

Last night (30/03/19) I received an E Mail from someone calling herself Katy Baldwin asking for information about retired BTP and members of NARBTPO. I have checked and as far as I can find out there is no one with that name with any connection to BTP past or present. I am treating this as a very crude attempt to get into the website. If this name crops up on any other members E mail I would recommend deleting it immediately.

Update:- Further digging suggests her true name is Katy Shatz and her IP address is in Germany.
