Both the LI Geese and NE Geese claim the same thing. Its a topic that has been debated here before. Both started in the early 80s, and both still have teams today in one form or another.

Will not get into which Geese are the oldest now that I know both teams are from back in the day.
I know that NE Geese were around the NSG Tourney scene in the mid 80's.

Is it time to start a thread for year that teams were formed to stop any posers from inventing teams that they were on "back in the day".

This may sound bad but I don't consider the 89 photos of the Geese old ,I dropped out in 90.
RJ
I don't see any of the Geese anymore as they are up in New Hampshire. As far as TAC goes, we have been playing recreational stock class twice a year so, we have been playing for 25 years . For the ones that went to England:

Jim Flanagan moved to Jacksonville
Troy Palmer moved to Southern Florida
Leo Pon I see occasionally - he is an international tour guide
Dan Theis - disappeared

As for the others, there are 7 TAC players that still play together:

Rich Buck
Craig Oppenheimer (me)
Mark Hatfiled
Chris Keeling
Ron Poulin
Vernon Rhodes
Tom Ghee and Pyrate Jim (not TAC but they play with us)
Mike Buorngiorno

Bart's Stud Squad has a couple of notables.......I see Jacko Parsons of Planet Eclipse and Pete "Robbo" Robinson in that picture.

Both are 4th from the right.
