    Thanks for finding this pictures and posting them. How many of the people in the pictures do you suppose we can name? How many are still busy at Rollag?

    Is the third picture taken south of where the TMB now stands, west of the Assumption Food Stand? If so, I am guessing the grass beyond the fence is now Expo hill.

    Thanks again for the pictures!

    Those are awesome pictures Brian! NOTHING west of the tracks! Who can remember that? It was 4 years after my first show!

    I spotted Jim Briden, Warren Oday and Merlyn Meyer...

    I remember that! I saw Lynette and one of the girls, pretty sure. Bill Dey, Neil Hemminger, and Danny Roen, I think.

    I remember that day. I had a hard time recognizing myself in the pictures!! I didn't see Teri in the picture, but she was there. She was our Queen that year and she helped drive the first spike.
