    images/1x1.gif Well, the Society has certainly come a long way from the early days when I was a member. I was disappointed, tho, that you only start the history from 1967. I remember when I went to meetings while in high school at various members' houses (I was grauated in 1965). I can still see the thick eyeglasses of the short Jerry Katz, with his slicked back very black hair. who took me around - and remember playing Risk at many of the meets. In later years, after I returned from Vietnam in 1970, I found the Society holding meets at the streetcar museum; the first time I was there, we all went outside and lined up to do high kicks like a chorus line, to the puzzlement of passing motorists - this, of course, gave us something else to talk about when we adjourned to an all night diner to snack and talk til dawn. Jack Chalker used to take me to SF meets in Philadephia, and we would compare notes on both being shot while in the military (he, of course, was only shot with a .22). Running across your website brings back fond memories of what a SF club should be; I hope some of you are still maintaining the old ways.
