Hard to believe it's been 15 years since the monumental event, Bloomington Gold, and their Special Collection XX.

Who remembers the show? Were you there? And what were your memories? :hi

Just came across the 50 page show program which had close to 30 pages of Callaway historical data inside. Great stuff!

Yes, Al Capone's Hideaway. Awesome dinner, and some great stories. That one trumpet though was so loud!! Put a sock in it!!

Years later, went back two more times to Capone's. Great times. The show is now in Indy at the Speedway, so restaurant choices are different, but many, still.

The fun we had with the group at that event was awesome. Luigi, Surf, Pete. All fun. Kevin, Francine, Eric, and Paul. And of course, Big John!!

There was nearly an engagement party that last night, I think. Nearly. :hi

Chris, the show program is a hidden gem. Your article on the C12 is fantastic and there’s great info throughout.
