Georgia Militia Meeting

From 2007

In April, 2007, there was a small get together at George Hardeman's lake place in Georgia. Here is Vic Bandini's report on the event:

Back late Sunday night from our weekend at George Hardeman's lake place in Georgia. Had a great time, the weather was beautiful, lots of good food, Firebird Fuel (booze), war stories and laughs. The Georgia militia meeting was attended by Jim Alsop, Vic Bandini, Stan Esckilsen, George Hardeman, Terry Igoe, Lynn (KAZ) Kazmierowski, Kelly McHugh, Dave Nottingham, Randy Thomas and John Wiklanski. The weekend was really great although I can't do the marathon drinking anymore. I hit the bed relatively early every night - food, war stories, and laughs were all great.

We talked about doing some 'boards' from the '68 - '69 time frame to display at the Reunions. KAZ has the lead on the project - we'd like to add to the collection for posterity. We also talked about organizing something for our kids and grandkids to continue on with. Want to keep the light burning for the Rattlers & Firebirds into the future.
