History

MASCDCS was founded in 1957 by Art Peck and King Moore who led the club until 1971. At the first meeting everyone invited and present were proclaimed, "Members of the Board." Everyone who joined after that date are titled, "Only a Vice President." In 1971, Austie Clark and Bruce Wennerstrom took over MASCDCS leadership until Austie's passing in 1991. Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom carried on the famed club until Genia left us in 2011. Bruce was the lone "Top Bastard" until his passing in 2015. In late 2015, the Wennerstrom children took over the leadership of the club.
