  1. Barry Duncan, I was a Dell Rat too. I started to go up there when I was 14 years old. I love dancing with all the nice girls there. If you wanted to pick up a girl, there was the place to go. I love the Dell. It a shame that I left the Dell when I had to go into the service. Good things never last forever. In life everything I did,had or enjoy that was great always came to a end. I'll miss John and Helen always.In 2009, I went pass the Dell and it was up for sale. I got out of my car and walk on the Dell property and stood ther for 15 minute and tried to remember all the great times I had here.When I left, I almost started to cry. How can something so good end this way. Barry Duncan
