r.a.t.u.c.s. July 1997 (Granada Studios)

International "CONTRESS"

This site was made possible thanks to the generosity and hard work of

Darlene Wakely, (Canada) and Maggie Worsfold, (England) for their tireless efforts in snapping

and providing countless pictures of fellow r.a.t.u.c.s. members while attending the July 1997 Contress

in Manchester . . .

A big. THANK-YOU .Darlene & Maggie!!!

(Note the lovely rose bushes and flower boxes)


Rita Sullivan certainly caters to kids at the Kabin !


Mike Baldwin and Angie Freeman's new place of business, "Underworld."

(. . . it's hard to believe from looking at this building,

that it used to Steve McD's "printshop" ??)


A few r.a.t.u.c.s.'ers at the Granada main gate.

a great time we were having.
