There was a brief ceremony at the tent's birthday
celebrations and time for a historic photograph
During a period of reflection on the early days,
Willie McIntyre recalled the tent receiving a
prestigious award in 1978 from Sons of the Desert
founders John McCabe and Al Kilgore. Willie decided
that the certificate deserved resurrecting and a
dusting. He resolved that it should be passed on to
Janice Hawton (the tent's current and longstanding
Grand Sheik) for Janice to guard for the next forty
of all the tent's four Grand Sheiks (past and present)...
