We're racing through history!
One of my cousins was Rex Manchester; his mother and my mother were sisters. In March of 1966 I was asked to take motion pictures of the pre race season test runs of the Notre Dame. The Dame was launched from the old Jett's Marina at Rainier Beach. I filmed with an 8mm Bolex P1 zoom reflex camera and the movie encompassed two days of testing which also included scenes at the Notre Dame shop on Aurora Avenue. Three weeks after I gave the 15+ minute film to the crew I went to Air Force basic training and I lost track of the film. For the past few years I have been tryinh to find the film so I can transfer the imagery to dvd format. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it very much. As a side note; also taking pictures of the runs was Bob Carver. He was taking stills with a 6x6 Roleiflex. On of his shots had an artists rendering done of it and that rendering became the cover art for the 1967 and 68 Seafair Programs.
