    You and several others think the NTA is taking in millions of dollars every year, and blowing it all in. Get a life!!!
    I reallly don't understand where you are coming from. I know you have been a State Board member, and know how much trouble it is to put on a show. Isn't it much easier to have one person handle all the details, rather than 8 or 9 board members that only do half of what is required?

    For your information, AMD, the website was a joint effort.... with ME. Kay and I worked together on the website, and are still working on it. Now, where is the insult to her?

    You do not and should not speak for all the members or board members for that matter. So stop making everyone else out to be the Crains scape goat. But since you mentioned it, does that mean Ms. Kay now gets free rooms, registration, and banquet tickets at the next show like you always get?

    Show me where I spoke for all the board, and I will retract it right now.
    Now you are asking to to speak for the Board. They decide who gets the perks.

    Well Bill, since you opened up a second account I will answer you...... only a lazy ass would ask 'who's gonna do it?'. You Moron, Pennsylvania runs a much larger and profitable show than you could currently dream of giving the circumstances you and the Fabulous Five have put the NTA in and they do not have an ED. Ohio, Michigan & Texas have probably surpassed you and they don't have an ED.

    Hell, the last time you were in Texas he stood around looking stupid while Texas board members did yall's work!

    You know why you can't do it Bill? No cohesion. You have board members that can't stand each other and the members can't stand the ED and board. The suppliers have to be there to try and promote products, and a few competitors want ribbons..... other than that, there is no BOND.

    Congrats Bill, I sit with other associations and they do have a plan...... never let our association become the NTA. They use you as a blueprint of what not to do.

    Pat yourself on the back old buddy, between the World Show and bigger State shows, yours is the least attractive..... who ya gonna blame for that one? I know, the members and a few others..... it's you, Thompson, Crain, Phillips, Johnson & Wolk..... [expletive deleted]ing jokes of Taxidemy.

    Why don't you contact Mr. Larry or Hutch and ask how to put on a real show instead of a sideshow. Laughable bastards :)

    You're right Bill, I have served on a state board. And when I stood up to the 1 who wanted to have complete control of that state association, I got kicked out and treated just like some of ones on here have been kicked out and treated. That is why I have a special interest in this because I know exactly how it feels. And NO it's not easier to have 1 person in charge because that's exactly how it always turns out--that person soon starts to feel that they are in charge. And as far as the board is concerned, well, here is a prime example of where you need people who are committed to carry out to duty of being a board member. It's not real hard to find "yes men". If the NTA had any real board members then this crap would have ended long ago and the Crains would be history along with whoever else has been raiding the cookie jar. You know me Bill, put me on your board and watch the fireworks.
