These 2 guys have been birddogging for 30 years, plus.

Tuesday night was BBQ from "Pig in and Pig Out" of Wichita. The Kansas Air National Guard made their Party Hangar available.

That's Allan Johnson heading for the chow line in the fore ground.

Tom and Sharon Busse still on duty. These people worked tirelessly to make the reunion a success. The money that they generated made the difference to the convention.

Thanks you Tom and Sharon.
