I got a job in a deli but
I just couldn't cut the mustard.
Then I became a historian,
but there was no future in that.
This edition of the 300 "e" news features another "How I Do It" article from Jamie Hyde. Thanks to Jamie for his work and while we're at it, thanks to Carl Bilter for his detailed proof reading of these newsletters.
As you will see in the Events section, the location for our spring meet has changed from Uncasville, Ct to Mystic, Ct. The new host hotel is the The Quality Inn on Whitehall Avenue.
Thanks to Keith Boonstra the Club Store now has arm rest bases for the C and D.

Gil Cunningham: I didn't remember ever writing that 300C article (1972). Not too bad. It was nice to read it again. Didn't see any mistakes. Whew!
Write us with whatever might be on your mind.
If you like picture puzzles, here are new ones. Take your pick of the 300 club swim team, the cars at Blacksburg, and a B on the beach.
