Historic Amusement Foundation?

Does this group still exist? I have an Indianapolis address for them but I haven't heard anybody speak of them in quite some time. They reportedly acquired some old and rare rides.

I'm trying to track down information on the boomerang ride. Not the Roller Coaster but a primitive and evil little flat ride that existed at Bertrand Island Amusement Park (NJ) (and possibly other places?). I've heard that The Historic Amusement Foundation may have saved this ride. I've also heard that it was destroyed when the park was leveled in 1986 or so.

Yes it still exists. I have spoken with one of the founders recently. They have been refurbishing some of the rides (mostly carousels) and leasing them out to help pay for the storage on the bigger stuff, like the European Gondola ride that used to be a Opryland.
