Bob Gajda's Chicagoland Reunion

Bob Gajda's Second Annual Chicagoland Iron Reunion is scheduled for November 5 - 6 with seminars the first day and a banquet on the second day.

Last year's inaugural gathering included Bob Gajda, Sergio Oliva, Bill Pearl, Ed Coan, Ernie Frantz, Russ Knipp, Joe Puleo, Fred Lowe and Bill Seno, said reunion chairman Terry Strand, and this year's event, which will help raise money for a gym for the Salvation Army that now occupies what was once the Duncan YMCA, will build on last year's success.

In the late 1960s the Duncan YMCA, under Gajda's leadership, became a powerhouse in the world of heavy metal, with some of the world's top bodybuilders and weightlifters calling it home.

For ticket information to this year's reunion, please call Bruce Hart at (847) 425-3505.
