    Default Early 1973

    It appears as though there may be a couple pages of this newsletter missing.

    Thanks for this post with picture of my dad, Uncle Ed, and Vernon Ashley. I had seen the newspaper clipping, because Dad sent it to me (I was in Keflavik, Iceland, at the time with the USAF), but didn't know it was in the AOF Newsletter. The boats in the background were stored for the winter at the main aircraft hangar on Memorial Field in Hot Springs where he always stored them (free of charge).

    Default Spring 73

    No dates or numbers on these 73 newsletters so I will try to get them in order.

    Default June 1973

    Best guess is this would be the June 1973 edition.

    This appears to be the July 1973 issue. There were two more pages but they were the application and racing apparel ad so I left them off this post.

    You know what Steve....I was looking at all those names and was surprised to see how many PRO guys ran SS. Some of the old PRO racers that I first met in the mid sixties were still racing, and I thought they had retired. A couple to mention were Jimmie Nichols and Jim Wilkins. There were some I knew of by reputation, and I figure I came across them at races, but never met, and I regret that. I got to know Dudley Malone, but I figure somewhere close by must have been Clyde and Ken Bayer. I don't know that I was ever at a race where Kid Smith was, but these are a few guys I wish I would have met. And although I knew who you were Steve, I wish that we could have actually met and hung out. Maybe some day.
