These are some photos from the only Auto Haus Picnic that I can remember having as a company.  Ed Craig and I have talked about this and we are both trying to remember where and when it took place.  Maybe once Ed sees the photos again he may be able to contribute.

I'm going from memory here on some of the people who most of you will not know, but many were instrumental in creating the industry you've all come to know.

The first shot going left to right is Barbara Olcott who was a in a long time relationship with Jere Aldahf.  Next to here is Ricky Rosevear, Ron's youngest and Linda Roseverar, Lynn's wife has her back to you.  In the foreground is Cheryl Rosevear who was Ron's only daughter.   The fellow in the white T shirt and tan pants is Al Locke who worked in the warehouse.  Larry Rosevear, Ron's second son is wearing the AH shirt pointing towards us.  The others I can't remember, but as stated before maybe Ed can.

I can only identify a couple in this shot.  Far left is Barbara Olcott and just to her right is Sue Cooley the wife of Bruce Cooley.  I've written the story of Bruce prior so you can search for it.  Ed and I have tried over the years to locate Sue but have never had any luck.  She and Barb were both really sweet hearts.

The "game".  Can't identify people in this one or tell you where it was, but that was probably the majority of the company.  Note the girls in the "rooting section" and the Bus parked at the top of the photo.

Here we have Les White dancing with Christie Lazenby.  Les was English and a real card.  We became close friends and we still exchange Christmas cards.  He later became very big in E-Jags.

Ed Craig always lusted for those "Plad" pants that Les is sporting.   Wink Wink Wink Wink

I think Barbara is in the foreground with her back to us.  On the far left is Barbara Moon and if she is the one I remember the MOON shirt was more than appropriate as she was well blessed.  Ed, can you chime in on this one??

That is me with my back to the camera.  Note the DKP burgundy cords.  Les White to the right and the lady sitting in the center is Verona (Ronnie) Rosevear, Ron & Lynn's mom.

On the left I think is Ed Craig sitting in the chair.  Les White standing with the Auto Haus wife beather shirt on.  Far right standing is the lovely Linda Rosevear.  She was also a real sweet gal and quite the looker.  That is me sitting on the ground with the hat.

Les White on the left, myself in the center.  I think the lady with her back to us is Verona Rosevear and Barbara Olcott almost out of the right frame.

Ed, I thought for sure you would have something to say about Barbara Moon and what was under the shirt.....
