Quite a few years ago I went on a motorcycle ride looking for the range at Vernon Vermont. Got lucky and met someone in the general store that was in the local historical society. I guess I didn't look too scary and was shown where the range was. The property is still there as it always was. It is privately owned but you can view the property from the street.  If you squint real hard you can see the butts.

A mystery solved! This is a cabinet card that showed up on a San Francisco history site, the owner didn't know who it was, or what the uniform was, but after I explained about the old schuetzen clubs, she found the other pieces that went with it. It turned out that he was her husband's great-grandfather, Charles Wiese of the San Francisco Schuetzen Verein;  Smiley

Neat Bob, really neat!
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

Coors meant the beer on the table, of course, but we of the ASSRA know the alternate, truer interpretation.

Who is in the picture?  They look familiar, but I don't recognize them by name.

There are indeed two Americas. Simply put, it is not the haves and have nots. The two Americans are in reality divided into those who do and those who don't.

Well, I think this was taken in '83, interestingly, many of the folks who were there, are still here; Randy, Russ Hooks, me, Dave Luth, Tom Rowe, Connie Grims, Tom Trevor, Bob Carrow, Tom Duffy, Chuck Brockway, Jim Westergaard, many more.... Clockwise from the top; Barry Darr, Dave Luth, Rick Van Meter.  Wink
