35 Years Ago Today! White Rose Hillclimb Program...

 Check out the date of the meet... 1/23/1977...35 years ago today!

 The Markey's

What are the chances that I'm paging through a pile of the Franz family Hillclimb programs just now (literally) and happen to glance at the caption of the Annual Gold Hunt picture on page 41 of the White Rose MC Program and it turns out to be 35 years to the day???? January 23, 1977...had to post it...not to mention it was the 25th Anniversary of the White Rose Motorcycle Club! Let's see 25+35 = 60 years this year.

Anyway I have a pile of White Rose MC Hillclimb programs from the 60's, 70's, 80's. The cool thing is that the Markey family was (and still is) heavily into Indian Motorcycles and antique bikes in general. They would put on antique motorcycle meets at the White Rose Club House grounds and add the pictures to the Hillclimb programs.
The antique meets continue on today in the form of the AMCA Jefferson PA National meet.
Enjoy the pictures...more to come.
