Old Friends from Russia
Hi Roger.

Reading Ron Felix’s SEN on Russia #2573.   Here is a picture of Andrei Khrebtov (3rd from left) Allen Brush (4th from left) Andrei Burdov (5th from left).
I forget the names of the others; but I bet you know!

Wonderful people and wonderful memories for me!
Allen and I took both Andrei’s to Disneyland and they stayed at our home when here in USA.

Editor’s Comments on Russian Reports
I agree that Ron’s article was great because he gave interesting background information about the event, the people and how to get there. It could encourage more to go there and tells us what some our old friends are up to. I have looked that Russian events in the results tables and wondered what the are like. Ismet’s earlier article and Ron’s have us a good insight and are most welcome.

It’s good to hear from you Tina and it reminds us of taking part in World Champs (Allen and Tina helped in the 1993 World Champs at Lost Hills)  and World Cup events gives us long lasting friendships with interesting people that we would have never met otherwise.
