      In 1990, several friends of Dean Perkins of Vandalia, OH, a UK fan who was suffering an illness, wanted to cheer up their friend. Arvel Fugate of Middletown, OH,  Jack McKay from Pennsylvania and Jim Porter of Franklin,  OH decided to have a picnic and invited other friends, who were also Kentucky fans, to discuss  the happenings of UK basketball.  Thus began the UK Convention.  Among those in the first group was Shelby Linville, member of the UK 1951 NCAA championship team.
