Its so good to hear the voice of that great American John Judge of COPA he was a friend and I enjoyed all the conferences I attended in Dallas at the Lawrence hotel sometimes with as little as 15 people all Americans,I would travel 9000 miles just to hear him speak john and Penn Jones were indeed leaders in there field

what a wonderful piece this was Randy and yes I was one of these people who thought of himself as independent and went to both Lancer and COPA as I did not want to be a political, boy was I a chump,in 2011 I tried to make a kind of piece hoping that both groups could come together for the 50th in 2013 and John Judge got to hear about it through a COPA friend boy did he rip into me calling me a Hobyist which got my blood up which I replyed if you think I come all this way to here to you speak in front of 15 people you are crazy things were never the same after that and in 2013 when I came to Dallas I attended Lancer but I had promised to give out leaflets out side the Plaza and attend the Friday night conference at the aloft Hotel this I owed my friend and did ,I went to market Street where COPA had been pushed because of mayor Rawlings to hear my friend speak and even got into Dealey plaza at 14-30pm to stand with him and old the COPA banner to hear his wonderful words,little was I too know that this was the last time I was to see john again,since then I have learnt a lt about Lancer and there true function and the mary Farrell foundation RIP my friend
