For people who attended Crawford High School or would have attended if they hadn't
moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

September 6, 2019

Butch Higgins '65 puts together seasonal golf tournaments and this one, a “Back to the Future” gathering, was played at Colina Del Sol, a pitch and putt that most of us played as kids.  Alums from the ‘50s to the ‘70s competed,  including my son Matt (Santana ’93).  Steve Kapchinske '65 won the seasonal trophy on a points basis.  The field included a who’s who of notable San Diegans.  It might be fun to see if your readers can identify them. We're all a little long in the tooth, so it will be tough sledding -- Dan Burton '66 

(Click HERE to check out a whole lot of photos taken by Dale Olson '65.  He posted them via Google photo, which may allow you to make comments -- or name names.  I'm pretty sure Bob Boone is left of center, in a red shirt with a horizontal blue stripe)  

I shoulda posted this last week.  It's the football program from the San Diego-Los Angeles high school game played at Aztec Bowl on August 26, 1959.  Click HERE to check it out.

Turns out, before there was Cinnamon Cinder at 7578 El Cajon Blvd, there was Comanche Bowl.  This is the best I could do for a photo.

Turns out The Contrasts, who followed the coasters on this particular weekend, was a band largely made up of Colts.  That's them below playing a benefit at the Scottish Rite Temple:  Bill Keller on sax, James “Skinny” Bolan on guitar and lead singer, Donny Arnold on drums, Jan Tonnesen on lead guitar, and Kenny Jiampa on bass. I've put all of the Cinnamon Cinder stuff on a web page.  Click HERE to peruse.
