Since we last "spoke," you may have heard that besides being Editor for e-Train, I have been appointed TCA National Treasurer. As I am running unopposed in this latest election, unless someone mounts an incredible write-in vote, you are stuck with me until at least June 2014.
So, now, more than ever, I need the TCA membership to step up to the plate and help me out by writing articles. I will edit text and do my MintzMagic® on the photographs to help you display your collection or discuss your operating articles.
I would very much appreciate any and all submissions. TCA is so much more than any single event. Despite having many other interests and hobbies, the endearing friendships that I have made with fellow train collectors far outweigh those of the people that I meet playing tennis and racquetball, my fellow New York Ranger hockey fans or the various water sports that I also enjoy. I now have a database of friends that are not only neighborhood or regional, but national and in some cases, international. You may not think that an article is of interest to fellow "trainiacs," but believe me, they are read.
Although I do not frequently get direct responses to my own articles, people do read them and I when I introduce myself to people at York, I get compliMINTZ on my articles. You can too!
