It's ALMOST the same photo, John –  Undoubtedly taken within a few seconds of this one from Ernie Robart's camera:

– which IIRC is the one used for your plaque, although I'm not positive which version Ernie sent you.

Which is a major reason that so much effort was put into honoring the Summer of '70 Volunteers back in 2010, Bill -

Weren't none of us a-gettin' any younger.  We had already lost three or four of the key players, and now Ernie too has left us.  With all that's happening currently, it's unlikely that there will be a gathering at the C&TS, so we'll have to celebrate remotely.  I'm sure the NGDF will be busy this coming summer . . .
