For me, - When I found the TMA,I was a "newbe". I joined the "    open FORUM"  a couple of things occurred =
1. I found a group of individuals that "REALLY cared that I was here & were willing to help me out any way they could, without being condescending or PC. . ( unlike another forum, I was on.)
2. Individuals that not only enjoyed the "sport", but were determined to keep it TRADITIONAL.
3. The TMA was OWNED/RUN by the MEMBERS !! (not an individual/or select group, who did things their way,& to H^*L with the members)

It wasn't the "thingies" ( weren't many then)
I liked what I saw & being "old fashioned", I decided to "support" the TMA. ( after all I was "taking up a stump & sharing a few "cups" & in my "world" you support Your "camp".
( Like most org.s, only a very few support the org. The majority are "pew warmers etc.  simply Enjoying the org. That is NOT ME. )

I paid the "paltry" $15.00, got a couple of GRMMers to join ( also got a "bumper sticker & a "paper Mem. cd. ) & went from there, growing, learning,making some life time Friends & NEVER regretted it.

We have come a LONG WAY &  are still growing, but the Main reasons, I spent $15,00 ( & renew ), Have NOT changed.

BTW, I am a NRA TC. I paid $$$$ for my membership, but I  also have to pay each year to teach ( $10.00 per discipline, for me about $80.00)

I also get to belong to an association that is providing our youth with an opportunity that they would probably never get the chance to have, and that opportunity is shooting traditional style  muzzleloaders on a regular basis.

We, the TMA, have provided 8 traditional muzzleloading rifles and shooting accesories to 2 different youth organization's. Nothing feels better to me than getting our youth involved into the traditional side of living, giving them some skills that they would never have a chance to learn. This is what the TMA is all about.

That right there will make me send in my $15 every year, without a question as to what the TMA is doing for me!

TMA IS THE BEST DEAL IN THE WORLD
THE CERTIFICATE OF MEMBERSHIP ON DISPLAY IN THE OFFICE IS A GREAT CONVERSTION STARTER EACH ONE HAS A MEMBERSHIP NUMBER.
THE SAVINGS FROM RETAILERS LIKE SHEAS MOUNTAIN MORE THAN MAKE UP THE FIFTEEN BUCKS, NOT TO MENTION THE MEDAL, MEMBERSHIP CARD AND DECAL.
YOU SHOULD REALLY ASK WHAT CAN I DO?

Thanks there pony...  Since 2005, I think I have made well over a hundred new friends for life
and many time that in acquaintances.  This is such a big country with so little time - wish I could spend time
around the campfire with all of you, but this does fill a big spot in my heart.

TMA will be with me always till I go under.   :toast

This topic is about seven years old, but I would like to bring it to the top again, because it reflects so clearly who we really are and what we really do.

It also brings to light our successful Raffle that was just recently held....along with another year of absolutely great donations from a caring  Membership.
That, along with a very nice Flint lock from the TMA, made for yet one more successful year in our TMA Grant Program.

The key to every successful Membership Organization is to be found in the members themselves!

Recommend us to your buddy, to other family members, and the neighbor down the street.

Have them visit the TMA forum, and help them become a TMA Supporting Member.

We are always in need of supporting members, without those that really care about our future in this wonderful sport we become "just another Internet Forum", and that is simply NOT us.

It does not define us, because we do care, and because we are concerned about the future of the sport, and in the future of our youth who will someday follow in our foot steps.
We can have everything else in the world, but without a membership that cares enough to support us, we have very little.

So step-up, bring the year 2019 in with a Membership to the TMA!
Show your support while promoting this interesting Hobby, plus helping the kids.

Become a Supporting Member!

Uncle Russ...

It's the many things we don't do that totally sets us apart.

Talk about serendipity , yesterday  I  was thinking about posting a thread  about everything I like about our forum . Today Uncle Russ gives me this wonderful segue. What do you get for the  price 2 Starbucks coffees?
      You get to keep our sport/passion alive for future generations. You get the comradrie of like-minded enthusiasts. You get knowledge  and to share knowledge  with experts and novices alike. You get a non-judgmental forum to  ask question and share ideas.

We all know there are other muzzleloading  forums out there but ours is different. We don't get tongue lashed for sharing different opinions, we don't get walked over in our posts. We get respectful answers to our questions and constructive feedback on our ideas.

I was reading a post about patch knives in another forum, the original question  was answered in 4 posts. A few of the "Experts" dogged each others answers for an additional  70 odd posts. I have neither time or inclination  for that nonsense.

Our board members, and moderators and membership  are the best. AND we don't have to put up with intrusive off-subject advertising .

Thank you all.
Nessmuk.

P.S. I was just guessing  about the price of Starbucks Coffee , I  can't  stand their stuff.
I'm  not  H/C or P/C or even a particularly  good shot but I have a hell of a good time!

This forum for 15$! Which is a far cry friendlier than a few others and sure better than Facebook trolls any day. :toast

No wonder I don't buy Starbucks coffee!   :laffing :applaud :lol sign  I plumb can't afford that!  But yes, this has to be one of the friendliest, best run sites on the Internet.
