Written May 29 2003
I've been attending TRHPS since ("cough, sputter, gag...") and have been on nearly every local Tampa Bay cast since (see below).

I've hosted visits by Sal Piro to our weekly shows 3 times, in '92, '98, and '00, and the Tampa Theatre annual show 3 times, from '00 to present -

The '92 visit is mentioned in Sal's book, _Creatures of the Night II_ (page 66). I invited the Gainesville cast to join us, stay over as our guests, and perform dinner scene, so they'd have a chance to meet him.

I've been on WTVT-13 news twice, and have been in the papers at least half-a-dozen times -

I've guest performed with the NYC cast, thanks to Bill Brennan and Ron Maxwell, the Teaneck, NJ, cast, thanks to Larry Viezel, the Gainesville cast, Vertical Staging in Brandon, FL, and Near Death Experience in Tampa, FL, and was invited to perform in a special show on Fire Island by Perre Polley and Jessica Feldman.
I have been involved with or traveled to see Rocky in 7 states and over 20 theaters.

I have been the Tampa Fan Club Rep, number 431, since 1990, having recruited hundreds of fan club members over the years.

I ran the fanzine, _Extreme Lifestyles_, from 1990-2, which, while short-lived, did have readers in both the USA and overseas.

I've also performed as Judge Oliver Wright for Shock Treatment at two conventions.

I think that's enough for now (and this IS the Reader's Digest version!). Now some cast lists for your reading pleasure...
