“A capacity crowd converged on Tropico as hot air balloons went up and the Condor Squadron bombed the outhouse, while sky divers drifted down to the aroma of championship chili. KLAC celebrity disc jockey Dick Haynes helped Jim House and Tommy Farrell on stage. Other celebrities such as Jim and Chris Mitchum, Jack Kelly and Billy Barty entertained the crowd. Joe and Shirley Stewart, the Sierra Nevada Regional winners, took home the first-place trophy as the 1979 World's Champions.”
