Very interesting thread. I originally joined for York. I look forward to all publications and totally enjoy the museum which I go to at least once a year. TCA Headquarters are 90 minutes to 2 hours, depending on traffic, away. The interesting thing is, I just got invoiced for renewal. I thought about the TCA and is it worth it. I am now a HERITAGE Member, so I guess that answers it! Worth every penny. Publications, Library (which I have not used), Museum, Hobby promotion, News, Web Page, Ads (which I have used and searched for things I need or want) and most of all the COMPANIONSHIP of fellow FRIENDS (hobbyist) is worth it all. I do not attend my Atlantic division meets. I went to a show once and it was okay, but the only person who really seemed to care about talking or helping was the President at the time and the fellow who I gave my name to purchase the WAWA car they were coming out with. I do enjoy reading their newsletter. And YES I also donated a little extra. I did the math and if I live 10 more years it was worth going the HERITAGE route! If not it was worth promoting the hobby. Nephew and his son and my grandson are members due to me so YEP WORTH IT!
