I think this was the original team (1979/80?), before you're time. As I remember, you were still called "Pete the Pup" when this picture was taken. One third of these guys are no longer around. Picture by John Killdahl (sp?) I believe. Left to Right... Tom (T-Bone) Meyer, Gregg Johnson, Mike Hayden (kneeling), Stan Cronister, Jim Hancock, Gregg Pillon(sitting), Me , Gary Hoffman, Randy Iverson.
I think this pic was taken at Baldwin. Thinking they could fly a Beech 18 out of a 2800 foot grass strip. As it turns out, they had to empty the plane, and barely got it off the ground before the (raised) RR tracks. After that, we mainly flew out of Flying Cloud or South Saint Paul.
