The 7th annual KMPR Holiday Shindig took center stage at KMPR's headquarters deep in the Kettle Moraine region yesterday.
Friends new-and-old celebrated the season, Spotted Cow and a wide spread of food was had, recollections of times-gone-by were shared, and we also took time to remember those who we lost since the last Shindig in 2019.
Bill Wiswedel presented us with a 1972 AAR Eagle nose used in 1976 by Tassi Vatis' squad, which ran Eagles #7224 and #7228 that season, and Eve Pribel reunited her late father's Martin T-2 H-Modified with the trophies it won from 1960-1967 as well as an amazing knit sweater her mother wore when she was cheering him on. Finally, Bryce Dunn presented us with a 1977 Jorgensen Steel Eagle poster that he found when he stepped into a vintage shop in Door County. Thank you everyone who brought things to the event, its one of best days of the year for us.
I left at 2:30 this morning, it was a great time.
