Not new but not up to date either.
« on: December 21, 2022, 03:00:39 PM »
Hello. I was a active member many years ago and faded away because many other life responsibilities and health obstacles.
There are many names I remember from the early times. I was surprised some of you guys are still here. You must be over100 years old now! Just kidding. I plan to do more muzzleloader shooting and just lurk around here and observe.
I’m very happy to see the TMA has weathered the years so well. A tribute to its leadership. Dave would be proud.
Im retired several years relocated to the far north of WI. Far from the maddening crowds.
That’s it for now.

Wow! I Didn't expect this! But it certainly is an unexpected pleasure!
Pull up a seat, coffee is always on.
About that age thingy, I strongly expect your right on that assumption, and that goes for you too. Some of us old-timers are still slinging lead downrange on occasion, but it's not like it used to be.
Welcome back, Brother! Glad ya found us again.

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