I understand the political contentions with TAC, but I don't understand the
judgement of Tom Hall himself by members of this group. One day I expect
to be judged, hopefully by God, for what I have done or what I believe

I have seen volumes of productive discussion pass across my screen. If
after reading this and you wish to judge me, I encourage you to meet me
first. For all any of you know I might be a 5' 6", 140 lb, pencil necked
geek or I might be a 6' 2", 250 lb, barbell eater... or something in
Let's keep this in an open forum and maybe we can make more improvements to
the Marque and our respective clubs.
