Sorry to hear you won't be making it this year. I was going to bring the USMC uniform again this year and actually put it on. Guess I'll have to wait until next year. Good luck on your move. See you in '04.

I have some very bad news , after sending in all the needed paperwork and moneys for this years shoot and being accepted in to the club this year by Mr. Hill , I will not be able to attend this years shoot with you guys.
A family matter has come up that I have to take care of this coming weekend.
I'll call Mr. Hill tomorrow and let him know and "Hawksnet", thanks for making up a name tag for me . If you could hold on to it until next year, I be sure and make it to that one.
You guys dump a few drums for me and have fun. I'll be looking for a full report on the board.

You can bet I'll be attending next year . (My 1928A1 & M1A1 that I had planned on bringing aren't very happy with me right now!!!! They were all ready to go out and play!!!! )
All kidding aside, I talked to Mr. Hill today and filled him in on why I couldn't make it this year. He was sorry to hear that I wouldn't be attending this year, but said "we'll put you down for next year."
We were talking and the name tags that you are making up for board members came up. He thought that was a great idea and couldn't wait to see them, so I ask what name would he like on his and he said "Oh, don't worry about getting me one" !!!!......
What you say we suprise him with one , I think he'd love it. He said he doesn't have a board name, so lets make one up for him --- say like "TommyHill" or something like that?
What-d-a-think guys? (Sounds like he does a lot to put this on for the TCA Members.)

P. S. You are right about Tracie doing a lot to put this show and shoot on for the Thompson Collectors Association. Unless you are a TCA officer or a volunteer behind the scenes you have no idea. Trancie and the TCA really go out of their way to make this a class event.

I didn't know that!!!! (ya, go figure) Ya, I guess that would be ok. I thought Tracie would get a kick out of his own fictitious name tag from "The Board Guys".
It's no big deal, just a thought.... (I can't make it to the shoot anyway. )
