The ride from the Peacock Inn to the Taylorsville was a little longer then we had expected. At the we met with Sonny Cook, President of the Grounds. Mr. Cook opened up the gates and restrooms for us. He chatted with us for awhile and we learned that there was going to be a wresting match that evening. The sky was clear and it was getting warm, so Brenda and I setup the canopy that Coleman had gave us, which was the first time in quite a while.
Hal Bond and Nathan Smart, Taylorsville Lions Club Fair GroundsIn the afternoon we had some locals that came by to visit. Hal Bond and Nathan Smart were the first to stop. They petted Blackie and talked to Bill and Brenda about the planed route. We also had the honer to meet J.C Elliott and Bill Ramllett; both men Vietnam Vets. Mr. Elliott is a Navy man, and Mr. Ramllett was in the Army. Bill told them about our trip across the country and showed them he newspaper clipping book.
Milestone Championship Wrestling invited us to watch their event. I filmed some of the matches. Later that night a heavy downpour hit, what Brenda called a "gully-washer". The roof of the trailer leaked and some of Brenda cloths got wet.
