Hey Joel,
I just sent you an email that explains things a bit. Both my folks passed while I was making KLUNKERZ, but I dedicated the film to Professor John Finely Scott's memory. That may give you an idea of his impact. Thanks for all the support along the way.
Ride on,
Billy

Professor John Finely Scott seems like quite a character!

I love the film! It is a fantastic telling of the story of the birth of the sport that means so much to me and my world
