KC and Cat

I had a few old photos of our two club members, Chris 'K.C' Allen (otherwise known as 'Big Chris') and Cathy 'Cat' Guenther, who have passed away - thought I would post these to share...

Lee and Cathy playing net at Waterworks in the early to mid 80's. Notice the full extension Cat achieved on her back kick!

KC setting Tommy Carls ('TC') in a match against Gary Edge and Chuck Simmers. If you like to spike - KC was the partner to have - he was a setting machine...

RB doing a flying clipper while Leebo and Cat watch.

KC standing at the bank of the Descutes River in central Oregon near Maupin. It was an annual tradition to head to Oregon a few days early before the US Nationals in Portland to do some trout fishing with our buddies Dave Robinson, Henry Kenworthy, Bill Langbehn - with sometimes a special appearance at GateKeepers by Mr. Kenny Shults (yes, he can casts a fly rod as well (maybe even better if possible) as he kicks).

Cathy and Lee doing a little one pass out at Waterworks.

KC on Mud Island - same tournament. You did not want to be on the receiving end of Chris' serve - it was known and respected by all!

I would have more photos of K.C. from all the tournaments he traveled to, but he was always the guy behind the camera taking the photos! Both Cathy and K.C. are missed by all of us!
