Several people arrived by 5:00 to get the band set up as much as possible before the doors opened to the public at 5:30. (However, the public started arriving around 5:10.) The Wingwalkers USO Troupe (directed by Fran Boehlke, accompanied by Mary Kopet) brought their own equipment. They were done rehearsing by 5:10. Dinner ran from around 5:30 to 7:00. The Wingwalkers USO show scheduled for 6:15-6:45 started and ended about 5 minutes late.We were supposed to play 7:00-10:00, but it took until 7:10 to get the stage disassembled and the other sound equipment out of the way. The raffle and costume contest started a few minutes after 8:00 and only lasted until about 8:15, shorter than planned, so we began our second set early.
