The purpose of this forum is that of an online repository of the News Boquete email distributions. An online repository has been requested at various times since the inception of that email news service more than a decade ago. The roll-out of this website made an online repository possible. Note that News Boquete and Chiriqui.Life are not interconnected in any way; the postings are manually entered by the administrators of News Boquete.
News Boquete is neither the originator of these messages (postings), nor responsible for their content.
Posting of new topics in this forum is limited to those administering News Boquete. All emails disseminated by News Boquete are automatically archived (posted) here in this forum and become a new topic. Once a topic has been posted, CL members are then permitted to post replies; members just cannot start a new topic in this forum.
Boquete's Tuesday Morning Meetings (TMMs) are such a long-standing and ingrained part of life in Boquete that a dedicated sub-forum has been requested for its meeting announcements. The purpose of this sub-forum is to announce the speaker's discussion topic, which will typically be posted by the person scheduling those meetings.
BCP is the entity that schedules these meetings. Accordingly, only BCP may post a topic in this forum. Members are permitted to post replies, but just not a new topic.
Closely associated with the TMMs is the very popular Tuesday Market. Market activities generally will not be posted here as they are commercial in nature and belong elsewhere.
This forum is used principally by TV Chiriquí to post links to their audio/video clips.
