    Thanks, Becca.

    That's a cheap shot. Ken did a great job of explaining in his blog why he posted what he did.

    He also made many major contributions to the sport in the Metropolitan area before retiring to Florida. You always knew where you stood with Bob who was outspoken but also had a sense of humor. We will all miss him. R.I.P.

    Masters Indoor Track and Field Meets

    In the 1970s and the early 1980s before he moved to Florida he tirelessly organized Masters competition for the many people interested in our fine sport. Without his efforts many of us would not have had the opportunity to begin competing again. He always had time to talk to you. He was a wonderful man.

    My Lasting Bob Fine image

    Aug 1975 Westchester NY just prior to the First World Vet Champs in Toronto
    Bob put on a Masters meet with top international and USA guys at White Plains H S- It was HOT and Bob lugged water to the officials runners and fans ...hot like 178 degrees or somethin and Bob pouring sweat from every pore going back for basket after basket of water all day long.
