Well, we did it! What a great tribute to Allan Bard's memory. Over 100 people showed up and they came from everywhere across the country - from New York, Wisconsin, and even Hawaii.

Festivities began around 4:30 PM and went on beyond 10:30 PM. Great food, keg beer, wine, and a variety of personal preferences.

Photos to follow.

Good to know the torch still burns brightly.
Yes, hoping to see lots of pictures of all the old guard, who once were young!

Everyone that I spoke with had a really great time! It was fairly mellow and low-key with good conversations, GREAT FOOD AND DRINKS, renewals of friendships, and the making of new friends.

A few snapshots follow. Sorry if I get any names wrong...

Ah well, I've only known Jim for 40 years so why would you expect me to spell his name right?!

And Boo Dawg you are so right! It was a wonderful, mellow event. Listening to the stories was like living the campfire.

"No, they didn't even have gold line then, they just used the white, hardware store rope."

"Gear? If you needed something you made it."

Gotta treasure the pioneers from each generation that were there last Saturday along with spouses and friends.

Much thanks to Roger Derryberry, Mary Lou Long and Don Lauria for putting on this great event. Roger said it might be a good idea not to wait 10 years to get together again. I think everyone said a silent "right on". Let's do it in 2018!!! I'll help. Cheers, lynnie
