Well... I was at WCCF 1 thru 8, and probably have much of the materials
buried in the archives (somewhere). I've got images of the program from
WCCF #1 and my badges from 6, 7, & 8 in the 'Historical Items' section of
my web site.

Right now it is just the front cover of the WCCF #1 program, but with all
of the recent interest I should probably scan the whole thing and add it
to the site.

Hmmm... Sounds like someone needs to start producing 'official' programs
for the VCF! How knows what those could be worth in a few years!
