    Tennessee Tow Show

    I wonder what the person that signed a 30 year contract was smoking. The President at that time must not of had the TTTA's benefit at heart. Must have been Lazy and working with a Lawyer that might have a conflict of interest at that time. I told everyone when I was voted out that Tow Times would be running things. Tow Times could care less about the TTTA and only lining there own pockets. I see the Tennessee show as a way to give back to the towers and both TTTA and Tow Times make money from it. But when you have a Greedy partner then one gets pooped on. If I was the President at that time I might have signed for 5 years but not 30, that is NUTS and who ever signed it was/is NUTS, I think at times I could use some of what he was smoking. I think I would be trying to find the loop hole to get out of the contract.

    Tennessee Tow Show

    Member 4 1,003 posts Report post I think they are making a big mistake changing the 2019 dates, they are getting away from the Hall of Fame, and the Tennessee Towing Week. I think the TTTA needs to step up and be a bigger part of putting on the show, not sitting back and let Tow Times run all of it. Do the show sponsors want people to look at the changing leaves or buy equipment. This show was started as a way to give back to the towers. Friday night band and drinks in the parking lot for the ones that could/would not do the Hall of Fame meet and greet. It also ws a way to help the Museum by drawing more folks into town. I think the TTTA might need to talk with American Towmen about taking over the show. Tow Times has pretty much taken over things it seems to me. Jerry Riggs

    I am back

    I am retired now, not by choice. February 2017 I was at home, haveing breathing problems and hurting in my chest. Wife took me to the ER, they kept me, ran a stint in me, transferred me to Chattanooga for a heart bypass, they came back and said I had cancer in the wind pipe, 12 months of Chemo and Radiation. I had a CatScan on September 12th this year, Doctor came back and said the Cancer was just a scar now, Thank God. Drawing SS and VA now and doing great. Yes we have seen many changes in 17 years some good some bad. One cannot say I did not try to do my part for the Industry. Formed the TTTA along with Mike McGovern, formed the Tennessee show along with TTTA Members and help from the Museum. Helped set up the Museum, help with the Wall and the Fund. Think I helped get a lot done in 17 years.
