Jim Stender (JS) wins a bet that he can come down from the
library and take the corner in front of the Bookie at 50 mph in his 1962 MG
Midget. In 1970 we drove that same car to the Karnea in Toronto!
Drinking was not allowed in the House at 906 Thatuna, so we
utilized the fire escape. Can't tell who the highest people are. The dark jacket
is Randy Racicky, then Dick Skordal (Slippery When Wet) and Eric Fisher.
