HamVention 1986

The Gathering Of The Faithful

Part 2

 

January of 2014

WA8ZWJ has been working on a project to convert old slide photos into digital images.  He recently found these photos from the 1986 Gathering Of The Faithful at Chuck - N8ADN's.

This really is a collection of long lost photos from that Gathering.

1986 was the year that the IOOK shirts were introduced.

 

Charlie - WB8NSL

 

Bob - N0BIX

 

Jim - KA8SFL

 

KBob says "Where's my shirt?"

 

Hmm...

 

I'm getting closer...

 

Looky what I've got!

 

Is that the smile of a President or what?

 

The guys are watching a video I believe...

 

Bottoms up Chuck!

 

It's dinner time!

 

Yep!  The IOOK travels on it's stomach!  Here's proof!
