New Design for Message Board!

BIN Board!

The Briles Information Network Message Board has a new look. Proboards, which host the board, recently upgraded to version 5! The new version has several features which caused us to revamp the board with the new look. Due to spamming and a recent hacking, we decided to remove all members from the board. You can view and post messages as a guest only. All posts will be strictly monitored on a daily basis.Click on the link below the image!
