Dedicated To All Navy CT's Stationed at NSGA Shu Linkou Air Station, Taipei, Taiwn

San Francisco Club

This took place about the first month I was on Taiwan, so the date had to be late May – July.  My first room mate was a guy by the name of Joe Prisk from Alpha section.  He took me downtown about the 1st day I was there.  He brought me up to the San Francisco Club and introduced me to Peanuts.  It seems this was quite a tradition when I got there.  And as most of us did, I fell in love at first site.

Peanuts was quite a gal, that really liked us Linkou Navy guys a lot.  In latter months this was not available for us to do, since Delta section was kicked out of the San Francisco club for good around the end of 1971. 

Earl Axe has updated us with that story.  The San Francisco Club was located on the second floor of No. 1 Min Chuan West Road.

The story behind the reason for Delta section being banned from the club is that someone from Delta Section, possibly ‘Skinny’ Dan Norvell pushed the ABC Club’s juke box down the stairs.  Those that knew Dan would find that out of character for Dan, a normally quiet and reserved young man (totally out of character with the rest of Delta Section).  Is it possible that the juke box pushed Dan down?
