I've started putting pictures online and a lot of the group will be ASAers. Not being of that persuasion, I'm going to need everyone's help to make sure I have the correct identification for all those who attended. If you see a picture with question marks or a name that is incorrect, please email me right away with the corrections. I apologize for not remembering everyone's name. Hopefully after doing all these pictures I should. If anyone can help me out I'd be grateful. Thanks.
Standing: Chuck Moulton, Jerry Pry, Bob Reece, Harry O'Steen, George Zasadil, Mick McCombs, Chuck Johnson, Gary Field, Rob Robinson, Billy Ray Lowery.
