There were 25 rigs.
In 1980, Grant & Irene Hazlett joined the chapter. In 1988 Vaun & Doris Junkin joined. At the 20th anniversary there were nine rigs in the chapter and at that meeting all the members were present. At this writing, Grant & Irene Hazlett, Doris Junkin, and Bernice Frauen are the oldest standing Honorary
