You might want to add the name of Bobby Arnold (Little Rock & Denver) to the team picture. He is the partial head between Chris Carr and Tom Pregmore on the front row. These are great pictures ... you can tell the LR folks are the camera hogs. Thanks for creating this site and putting up these pictures.


Emails from the Boys:

Hello all you Gators:

A special thank you from both Connie and I for the great time we had in Aspen. This was our first trip out and meeting all of you made it extra special. A special thank you to Donna and especially the Louisana Cooks for the great hospitality.

Thanks again for letting me play on your side and despite a couple of senior moments when I forgot who was on my side, I hope that I helped the cause. We were just a few points from being 4 and 1. Sunday was disappointing in the loss, but again great for the teamwork ( hey when we add in the point system from Thursday's over 50 we won the total). A lot of true heart was shown on the pitch and I really liked the never give up attitude. I will always have the great memory of playing with the FOBs and hope to have the pleasure again before I get so old I can't walk.

Hope to see you all soon on one side or another of the pitch and best of luck to all of you.

PS. just remember that Flordia will eventually get Tennessee back and we will call it even again. I was sure glad to find Buck still breathing when we got back to the condo Sat. night. Buck and Linda, you all were great roomies.

Collin and Connie Crawford
