The time has come

Well friends the time has come for me to step down from the Board of Directors. I'm not leaving the club by any means, but after almost 10 years on the Board it's time for me to step aside and let someone with new ideas step up. It's been a lot of fun. Many of our members that have moved on will always be with spirit and pictures anyway. Spending time with current friends is always a blast. I (we) have made so many friends here that it really is more like a family than many folks have with real relatives...and we get to choose. Some of the younger members have refereed to me as Pop's or Dad which has always put a smile on my face. I wish there was room to post pictures of many of our friends that we have shared good times with over the years.

With the additions of Bill, Keith and Kima to the Board last year I know it's in great hands and will grow even better. It may have started with the trucks for all of us, but has grown into so much more for many of us.

Best of luck to HTC and the die-hard members that wont let it die through the friendships we have formed.

Maybe a few pictures anyway..

Thank you for the time you've put into this family. Without your hard work and diligence, there might not have been a place for all of us newer members to go. Thank you again.

Do we need to talk??
Not everyone can be queen.....there has to be someone standing on the curb to wave as I go by.

Thanks for everything...., you have helped make this forum a place to call home. You have always been there for me and helped with just about any question or problem I have had since joining. Its going to be hard for me when I get an idea or have an issue not to have you on the Board to talk to about it. Once friends, always friends.......actually more like family.

Doug have no worries we have this handled. HTC is in goods hands make sure to stick around don't run off but watch out for Tennessee trees our trucks don't like them lol! The current BOD will handle where you are leaving off. This family has grown a lot in the little time I have been a member and you will be missed on the BOD.
