Perhaps this is the true root of the problem.   That's how AGO lost *me* as a member/contributor.   Their corporate actions over the last several years (in matters/means of fundraising, and others) have insulted my intelligence one too many times. They can spend somebody *else's* hard-earned money from now on -- I'll keep mine, or contribute it to another more worthy organ-related organization. (OHS comes to mind immediately, but there are others too!)   For the record, I do not argue with the stated purposes of the AGO in 'attempting to foster greater professional development amongst organists'. =   (BTW, what exactly does that mean?) I wish they would concentrate more on =   that goal, and less on keeping their bank accounts full.   >As a more affordable alternative to full AGO members >hip, one can subscribe to The American Organist for $48 annually   I do agree that TAO is usually a worthwhile publication. For me personally, (being an organbuilder and not an organist per se) it was the only real "benefit" of AGO membership. But I can read the magazine at = work (or at the library if need be) for free.   Apologies to the List for the sour overtones of this posting. I'm sure = all the people directly involved sincerely *think* they're being good = stewards of those funds entrusted to their care.   Tim Bovard Little Rock AR

(back) Subject: new pipes From: "Gary Black" <gblack@ocslink.com> Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2003 23:23:14 -0600   Dear list: I have just purchased an 8' gemshorn and an 16' fagotto for $200.00. The pipework is from a 1968 Casavant organ that is housed in Peoria, Il at one of the Lutheran churches there. They have done a recent upgrade on the organ and didn't have use for these two ranks. Do you = think I did well as far as my recent purchase? What I would like to do with the gemshorn is to use it along with a dulciana and tune one so that I could have a celeste. Is this a good idea or what? Would love to hear from = folks here about that. Happy playing. Gary
