P.A.R.C. Historical Facts

  Here is a picture taken in 1967 at the time of the Okanagan International Hamfest. This includes almost all the club members at that time. The Hamfest alternated between the U.S. and Canada and at that time was organized pretty much by Marg Frazier of Oroville and Bill Sharp (VE7DB) of Penticton. When the site at Okanagan Falls no longer became available we moved to Gallegar Lake and Illahie campground near Summerland. I will try and come up with the calls of Jack Riley and Bob McArthur. By the way the first club meeting I attended in 1961 was in the old Penticton jail on Van Horne Ave. Al Miller.
