All , (including myself) served as Watch Supervisors/Assistant Chiefs in Los Angeles ARTCC. Frank Reed, who is 93 was the driver from the Los Angeles area. Great great reunion of many who knew and worked with Denny Mayer.

Here are several photos taken at the gathering of FAA friends at Frank Jones’s place in Yelm WA on August 20 thru August 25. During the five days of the get together the gang baked pies, played golf, went sight seeing and mostly just enjoyed each others company. All together there was 55 people in attendance. Many were retired FAA employees and their wives along with Frank Jones' relatives. The majority of the FAA types were SOAP members and others said they would be joining up.

Howard Clement taken at Ralph McAndrew’s 80th Birthday Party. Howard looks like he just escaped from Alcatraz Prison. Actually, it was the shadow from the slatted patio roof. Howard has been of great help in keeping the Executive Director advised of San Diego activities as well as Last Flights. His help is appreciated.
