I think Chris Woodall (flytyfish) set that up as he was a football coach at the school....off Roswell Road. The name will come to me eventually. It was a Sunday afternoon and we ordered pizza to be delivered in the cafeteria....I think that was it???

Dad gum, there's a bunch of old folks on this board! Doesn't seem that long but there has been a lot water go under the bridge and a lot of good information shared here over the years.

Maybe someone can remember his name...He used to be on the board a lot, but have not heard from him in many years.. I do remember an old post where he was the "poster child" for the NGTO..

There's a good chance his name was Gary. He went by Tentwing on NGTO and many of the other fishing boards at the time. Great dude.

Riverman, GrayGhost and Tentwing were some of my first friends from NGTO and if I'm not mistaken that fling on the Wass' was the first time I'd met many of them....and others for that matter.

Keep on Rocking it NGTO.

"Tentwing" does sound familiar...Thanks ! I often wonder what happened to many of those that used to post regularly on the board..

I guess they come and they go. Of the 74 people inducted into the Hall Of Fame over the last 15 years, I can count 30 (40%) that never post anymore. To my knowledge only one of those is deceased.

This has been a cool thread to read. I enjoyed reading about the history of NGTO and I already had a "hypothesis" on who has been around for a while! Congrats on building a fine forum
