Friday's Faces From the Past: TAMU RPTS Stories - A&M-Tech Get-Together, October 1976

Twelve members of Texas Tech University's Recreation and Parks Club traveled from Lubbock to College Station for the football game with Texas A&M on October 9, 1976 (which, unfortunately, the Aggies lost, one of only two losses that season).  After the game, the Texas A&M Recreation and Parks Club hosted a get-together with spaghetti and beer at the Country Place Apartments party room.  It was attended by about 40 from A&M, club members as well as some faculty.  Members of the two clubs talked about summer jobs, curriculum, and courses at the two schools, and tentative plans were made for a weekend at Tech's facility in Junction the next month (which will be the topic of a future post).  Here are the pictures and pages that cover this event, from the scrapbook I kept in 1976-1977 as the Reporter-Historian of the Texas A&M University Recreation and Parks Club.

The photo above is from the morning after, when the Tech club (and a couple Aggies) got together at IHOP (International House of Pancakes) in College Station before the Tech folks drove back to Lubbock. Kneeling in front are Gary King (Tech club vice-president), Dianna Wines '79 (from A&M), Kim Irwin, Linda Daum, and John McCammon.  Standing behind them, left to right, are James Longworth, , Ed Janousek (Tech Club president), Amanda Pape '78 (A&M club reporter-historian), Chad Banks (Tech club vice-president), Susie Sharp (Tech club secretary), and Fred Johnson. In the very back are Mike Bratton (Tech club treasurer), Mike Christiansen, and Nancy Masoner.
