Good morning everyone.  Who what have "thunk" it.  The Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.  I'll bet that didn't go over well at the "network" because I'm sure they wanted a Yankees-Phillies match-up.  Hee hee!!   I'm beginning to sound like a broken record when I say the transportation industry volume is growing at a snail's pace, but that's the truth folks.  Some is better that others, but the bottom line average is.....well average.  All indications are looking that 2011 will be a better year.  Of course we heard that in 2009 about 2010.    Make sure you utilize your privilege and get out to vote.  Your vote can make a difference.  Early voting has been hot and heavy here in Texas.  I don't want to hear you grumbling if elections in your state don't go well and you did not exercise your right to vote.   Headquarters has mailed out dues and insurance premium payment.  First one in get's a 15% rebate.  So let's "getter done".   If you have special venues coming up, please forward them to me so I can share with our travelers.  I don't have any new ones to share this week.  The Transportation Club of Houston will host their fall golf classic this Wednesday, October 27th at Tour 18 in Humble, Texas.  The same day the Houston Transportation Professional's Association will be doing a "wall build" at the Habitat for Humanity facility.  As I understand they are still seeking volunteers.  The Transportation Club of Detroit will host their Annual Dinner at the Hyatt Hotel in Dearborn, Michigan on Wednesday, November 3rd.  The Houston Air Cargo Association is hosting their fall golf classic on Monday, November 8th at Walden on Lake Houston.  The Traffic Club of Philadelphia is hosting their Annual Industry Night at the Subaru headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey on Wednesday, November 10th if you are traveling to Philly.   Regards, Dennis Tam President, TCI
