    Tom - I just heard a rumor that you have resigned from your State Assoc. post.

    If true, thanks for your years of service to your state and the ATA. Will always remember you at the last Grand in Vandalia!!........Herb

    If he did resign, which would be a loss, was it to become a professional singer??

    Noticed he was absent form all the PA shoots and the Grand. Heard he had plane problems during the EZ shoot in NY. Heard a rumor it was in protest to an ATA issue, but don't know for sure. Hopefuuly he'll fill us in, he was missed I'm sure.
    Ed, his singing wasn't that bad! I did consider having a moment of silence in honor of him not singing the nite I announced the shoot offs, while he attended the Delegate meeting. Thought better of it, as some might not have appreciated the humor in it.

    I meet Tom many moons ago he flew into Murray KY and I guess you have heard the saying Have gun will travel well he had the gun along with some of them purfumed paper federals.

    He would call another member to see if the club was open to shoot at and if the other member was tied up then the member called me I don't know if he was a delegate back then or not I doubt it if he was he never said.

    All I have to say is Tom is at the top on my list that I would bend over backwards for.

    I went to the grand maybe a year later and he told me how to find him in the camp grounds and he stood out like a sore thumb with his markings.

    I think he must have been a half Redneck but I liked it.

    Im sure someone will find faults with anyone but from my personal experiences with MR Ford they have always been Great.

    Tom if you was to read this then email me I was wondering if you still fly into my area now days.

    I had been away for awhile but moved back about 4 years ago.

    Gents - while killing time on the road, I happened to notice this thread. Although it won't be official until the CTA organizational meeting (10-30), I have decided to resign as delegate and State Secretary. Ron Fine will take over as Connecticut delegate - a new secretary will be elected at our meeting.

    Although my decision is a personal one, it had nothing to do with any ATA or Connecticut issues. When I looked back over my shoulder at what I tried to accomplish in my 15 years as delegate and measured the results, suffice to say I was thoroughly disappointed.

    Renee & I will leave the guns well oiled probably for quite some time. The only real loss will be the absence of a long, long line of friends,

    RO-HO - trips into CEY were curtailed for some time do to the stike at our plant and should soon return to normal. I'll e-mail you from home when I return from my current trip.

    Best to all,

    TK

    I got to know T.K. Ford because of "Magic Rocks" and being as I read people pretty fair from my lifes experiences, I would have to say the people from the CTA and the ATA are the biggest losers in this one ... Best of luck in anything and all you do Mr.T.K.Ford ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Mr. Ford,

    Thanks for your service to our sport.

    Would that be the big tall Ron Fine that used to be a Winchester rep. in the Midwest back in the early seventies, when I was young?
