Hi all, its been a long time coming, but we are getting close and we have picked July 3rd & 4th of 2009 for the reunion date at the Holiday Inn where we held the Nationals in Decatur.  We have started a web site ( to get all of the information out.  It is still under construction, so we are still looking for old & new pictures to add to the page.  Send them to Lee ( and keep looking for more info.  If you have any names, please get them to me by using:
Ross Papke and family wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2009 from Lake Zurich, Illinois!
