You know the printer could have mixed pictures up. I think you guys are beating this up too much. The guys are volunteers doing a great job for us cut them some slack.

Not trying to beat anyone up, just looking for clarification for my own knowledge. Magazine is always great.

Agreed, I wish I would have kept my big mouth shut as I absolutely loved this issue of TPC...my very favorite pro-car is high-top ambulances! With low-top ambulances a close second. Moderators feel free to remove my last post if you'd like as I didn't mean any ill will whatsoever, and I apologize.

No need to keep quite about things. No need to get excited about things either . One has to remember the staff has taken a couple big hits here. Brady's stroke now Tom's. it effects them more them we really know.

Arrived up here today. Excellent, as always! Thanks to all involved, particularly Walt McCall.

My "Letter to the Editor" was a private email ( or so I thought ) with Walt McCall. It was never intended for publication. My point was I wish they had a better system of proof reading or proof readers so some of these mistakes could be corrected before it goes to print. In my case, the text was "retyped" and errors were made. Not the end of the world but a simple proof read would of caught these mistakes. I was in no way looking for a apology from Walt. Mr. McCall has given more to this club than anyone could ever begin to repay him for and I appreciate his dedication all these years. I'd be more than happy to volunteer my time as a proof reader ( as I'm sure others would ) all they have to do is ask. Nobody is perfect, mistakes happen. With team effort a simple mistake will be less likely to fall through the cracks. With this being said I appreciated seeing the article and pictures in print. For the past 25 years I have always looked forward to my next issue of TPC.

I see your points tim, you make lots of sense. My comment was in no way intended to be a criticism, rather praise for Walt McCall's response, as the true gentleman he is. And yes, Mr McCall has given plenty to our club, as I have said many times, we are very fortunate to have him.

One of the things we need to visit. At he next board Meeting is adding some help to the committe. The key word being help. What they need should be up to them. But a little more depth might be in order to keep things going smoothly.
