Part I: Began in 1968


The MWS began in 1968. 

The only person to have attended every MWS is Bill Whelan.

Frans Huijing  has attended each one  since 1969.

The first MWS was held at the Coral Gables campus.

Every other MWS has been held in a Miami, Miami Beach, Ft Lauderdale  or Weston hotel, or resort.

The photo shows how Bill Whelan might  not have attended any MWS.

This is  his Volvo on SW 12th Avenue, on the day  before the first MWS.

It had been sideswiped and turned over  two and a half times.
