20 years ago -  June 1996

10 years ago - June 2006

The program was Field Day, of course.


Why, thanks to Bob, N8OB, we get a look into the past with none other than Gary and Sandy Mackey! On the E-mail reflector, Sandy said, “OMG! Gary was 17 and I was 15, he just had his wisdom teeth out.  Haha! 1977.” Flash forward to more recent times, and see where she sends Gary to sit in the corner.
