Done by brute force with 3,000 Qs!

We won more than once.  Here is a list "Leg" compiled for us a while back:

1966 Sierra Pelona WB6OLD/6 -- Matt and I
1967 Rancho San Julian WB6SST/6 and W6CXW/6 for the Bodids
1968 WA6LXN/6 callsign debuts and we operate 5A above Valley Circle
1969 4A winner from the new house lots south of Ventura
1970 Contractors Point

Notice we won 4A in 1969 also according to Leigh - anybody got a QST 
from then to confirm?

I also think he has the locations for 1967 and 1968 backwards.  I think 
Valley Circle was my first FD and I definitely remember using the 
phonetics "Super Sloppy Toiletrymanship" there.  (Probably the first 
time you ever heard or will hear that word unless you were there.)
