The temperature on July 4, 1972, was a bit cool. Note the coat and long-sleeved shirt worn by my brothers-in-law (Virgil Tornio on left and Edward Malz on right) as they pause for a photo while grilling some burgers on the lawn at my folks' farm. It was cool enough to chase several of us into the cozy comfort of Mom's kitchen to wait for a call to dinner.
Randy Malz and Dick Mushitz were the winners.
