We're the equivalent of an American Legion post of Track and Field but without cheap beer. You may contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or write a comment at the end of a given posting.

V 5 N. 9 Gathering of Oldtimers in San Diego
The San Diego Times recently reported on a gathering of track old timers at Spaghettini restaurant. Lots of good pictures of these guys though many in the photo gallery leave the persons unidentified. Easily found and listed are Bob Seagren, Billy Mills, Lazlo Tabori, Bob Covey, Bill Dotson, Martha Watson, Ernie Shelby, Ron Morris, Jim Bush, Ron Allice, Doug Nordquist, and many others If you go about half way down through the article there is a note you can click on to open a bigger picture gallery. None of those individuals in these photos are identified, but if you enlarge the pictures, sometimes you can read the name tags people are wearing. Thanks to Mike Solomon for sending this our way.
