The Bill Black dedication was a great ceremony with abut 40 people attending. The “Daddy Bill” fan club from Missouri included Mary Dell Black, her husband Rick, Larry, Susan, and Anne Beauchamp, Jim Wombles, and Gage Gregory. Both speakers gave credits to both Al Workman and Bill Black as being the pioneers for the Kerr-McClellan Navigation system and setting up the operational procedures.
