    Hey folks I'm pleased to be the one to make this announcement, So Here Goes!

    The NTA is pleased to announce that a new TERF committee has been selected and approved. Originally, the appointments were scheduled for October 1st, 2008; however, due to the impact of 2 hurricanes back to back this necessitated an earlier time frame. By making these appointments ahead of schedule this will allow the committee to begin working right away to assist taxidermists which have been affected by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. TERF guidelines will continue to be the guidelines posted on the NTA TERF website. These guidelines are currently the only approved guidelines and will be used to make decisions on all requests.



    TERF committee members are Mary Lou Crabtree of California, Eddie Johnson of North Carolina and Mel Kincheloe from Kansas.


    Yep!... I through my name in the hat along with Mary Lou and Mel because when the founders started TERF it was a Truly Awesome Fund and with this New Start I think it can be again. I know it's going to take time to build back the trust, but right now the committee isn't to concerned with that. What we need is help from you guy's reaching people...I'm in NC, Mary Lou is in Cali and Mel is in Kansas. We've got to have help from the ones at Ground 0!...We need names, phone numbers and especially address! Now I'm figuring I'll have a record cell phone bill next month, but we've got to get hold of these Dermist that are in need. So lets see if we can pull this fund back together and help the people it was meant to help!

    PS> Today is a new day and Yesterday is history!... I really ain't in the mood to study history today, so lets, let it go and try to help some people. OK?

    Thanks for the words if encouragement guy's!...It's kind of overwhelming I just received some pictures from Steve Germans place and I was like WOW! I setup until 3 or 4am Saturday morning watching news reports on CNN figuring I would see Micheal blow by a news camera... ;D...But its still hard to fathom just how much devastation there is! I asked if it would be OK if I posted some of the pics from Steve's place. I'm happy to say his claim has already been processed.

    $50, somebody should pay me for having to look at it every time I look at something taxidermy related.
