Welcome to East Tennessee!

You are seeing the best Spring I've ever seen for January.

Kingston is a great town; the riverfront is excellent.

That might actually make a good spot for a meet sometime; I'm sure it will be covered with people for the Eclipse this summer.

Send me a PM and I'll send you my number and email.

Hmmm... almost forgot about the Eclipse. Good excuse to fly down.

Monroe County, McMinn County or even Mark Anton field? Hmm...
