    @Codeguy Optimistically you know Tom Montvilla. I worked with Tom while he was an ASM and SM in Stratford's main venue. More than a Decade later in 1991 or '92 he was one of two Banff-ites touring across Canada interviewing folks hoping to work in Banff as assistants. The last I heard from Tom he was close to retiring and in charge of ordering and stocking bar supplies for all bars and lounges on Banff's campus. Back in Tom's Stratford days, approximately 1977 / 78, Tom used to pull essentially non-stop over-nighters to and fro' Montreal on his motorcycle returning the next morning worn and bleary eyed from his thousand mile plus journey through the darkness and served as one of the more reliable suppliers of recreational pharmaceuticals on Stratford's staff. Surely as a 'Codeguy' you understand what 'recreational pharmaceuticals' is code for? Tom must've mellowed some for management to have put him in charge of ordering and warehousing ALL of their alcoholic beverages. Tom would remember me as Stratford's IA head of sound in their main Festival Theatre where he was primarily employed.
    Toodleoo!

    Ron, hi
    I missed Tom Montvilla by what was probably days as I left Banff over Christmas time in 1983/84 and I think he arrived shortly afterwards.
    I certainly know of him ad have heard his name mentioned repeatedly.....
    I would not be surprised if he turns up at this Reunion thing in September....
