A blast from the past. 10+years ago
« on: November 01, 2013, 07:52:31 AM »
I was just working on the new update and found old pictures from the 2003 Charter Meeting of WAGS.  This was the very first convention of WAGS and only the Charter Members were invited, as we put together the final touches of WAGS during that meeting, including the bylaws.

Somebody please help me out here. The timeline evades me. The WAGS founding convention was in 2003 at Sidney, Ohio, and the WAGS Charter meeting was also in 2003. Have I got that right?  :-/

Thanks

And who are these  charter members pictured here if I may ask, as I came to the party much later?

Across the table is Paul and Bunny Baker, next is Bill Champion, I don't know the next few people, but at the end in the white shirt is John Knapp.

And in the top picture is Larry Fox in the middle, Dave Smith at the end on the right and John Knapp on the left.

And I may be mistaken about Bill Champion.  :-/

  Also, the last picture, the people at the table, with their backs turned, from left to right are: Dave Smith, Judy Kuhn, Bill Kuhn, and Sue Foxx.

I thought the cake was the best picture, LOL.  It captures the creativity of WAGS.
