THETA, TN – It’s oft repeated here, but you really can’t make this stuff up.
The TWHBEA Executive Committee is both PRO SORE and tone deaf.
In an ongoing “POLL” email discussion among TWHBEA Directors, Montana Rick Wies commenting on TWHBEA going from 17,000 members to about 7,000 over the past six years asks the following question, and TWHBEA Chief Justice Walt Chism responds:
From: rick wies
Poll the 10,000 members who have left over the past 6 years and ask them why?
From Walt Chism
Rick, that’s a good question and one I’m going to attempt to discover, since that is one of my responsibilities. I don’t know how many years you served on the EC but I can tell you the membership went down every year. My question, just so I don’t have to plow new ground, what did you do to fix it?
I’ll do the Joe Namath, we will have more members at the end of the year than at the beginning, we’ll show a surplus of income over expenses and we’ll provide more services , I guarantee it.
Chism is a SR VP of an organization which has seven of ten Executive Committee members with HPA Citation Histories, either themselves, immediate family member or employer. Soring primarily occurs when horses are ‘FIXED’.

The (BIG LICK) Performance Horse VP – Ford Gates last week posted about “Fixin” horses.
The train has left the station.
Steve Smith and Walt Chism are standing on the tracks down the line “FIXIN” to get run over.
With each passing day Walt Chism is showing that he belongs on the sidelines with Joe Willie Namath who last played a game of football 37 years ago.
