Another old timer has taken the final lap, Mac Pinches.

Very sad news, sorry to hear that, EM. 
 
I met Mac at the first Early Birds and at a few later events, and he was quite a guy, very skilled and very dedicated.

I had the pleasure of staying at his house while attending one of the Early Birds. A really fine fellow with a dry sense of humor. Was both a rail racer and an early slot racer.

Sad news indeed.
