True, I am not the Jim Akins you know from GA, but we do both play disc golf.
I met him back in the eighties when he was playing in a tourney at UCF in Orlando. I walked up to him and said " Are you Jim Akins " he said yes.... and I said " So am I ".... He seemed a little shocked and wondered what I meant I guess... Maybe I scared him a little.... Tell him Jim Akins from Florida says hey and tell him that I play golf quite often with somebody he might remember, Steve "Slaz" Slasor.

I didn`t notice your post until recently, sorry about that. I`ve researched it some and the only thing I know for sure is the Italian part of my family was from northern Italy. They emigrated here shortly after 1900 to Ellis Island.
