We want to hear all about it when next we meet! Actually, let us know before that as we all are curious about the details!
I'd like to be the first to offer up a Toast.....and an "L" drum salute!!
To Murray Willis and John Thompson....Two all-American heroes!!!
BTW, you'll have to come back to the US to get your drink...and bring Jan with, Spouses have to be present for Official Toasts!!!
Happy New Year!!

Ohio Phil actually brought a tear to my eye.
You were so kind in what you said Phil,
For those of you who may not know the background have a look at :
For me, the greatest rewards have been getting to know all of you. The many real friends that I have met and made through General John Thompson and this forum.
The prize was finding that Colt "C" drum at the last SAR show.
God bless you all.
Happy New Thompson Year.

You never cease to amaze me!!!
First, you tell me a few years ago about the IRD incident and how you took them to task; you take them court and win ( virtually unheard of in the this country regarding the I.R.S ).
Second, I see you walking on cloud nine at the 2004 S.A.R. Show after having just made the purchase of the century. You ask if both drums are originals ( which they were ) and you tell me what you paid for them; you really should spend some time in Las Vegas, you''d make a bundle with the kind of luck you have!
Third, you get this fantastic award ????? Murray, just please remember us little ol' folk when you get knighted and are granted a country all your own. Congratulations my friend, it is well deserved and couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Looking forward to seeing you and Jan at the 2005 S.A.R. Show.
Good on ya' Mate!

Congratulations on your QSM! I also admire your stamina and sense of justice in your year-long fight with the authorities - good job! You've set an example for all of us to follow; if everybody stood up for themselves like this the authorities would be kept in line. Thank you for doing just that.
