One of those folks was Phil Underwood and = it was one of his contacts that resulted in the closing of a sale for the organ today.   Mr. Bill Cassily of Bedford, TX is the proud new owner of the organ. = Bill's interest comes more from the mechanical musical instrument focus rather = than the theatre pipe organ. He is fortunate enough to have a home with space = and ceiling height enough that the organ can be installed easily. The folks of =   the North Texas Chapter are delighted that the organ will stay intact and additionally, be installed nearby. Bill has been offered any technical assistance he might need from the "Breakfast Club" <the worker-bees of the NTC> in the installation. We, of course, had to attach a string or two to this assistance. Bill assured me <with a wry smile> that he will be on the 2004 Roster of the = NTC and the ATOS.   Again, sincere and heartfelt thanks to those that extended the news about this organ's availability that led to this sale and the organ not having = to end up as parts.   Rick Mathews, Dallas, TX
