We raced in Saskatoon Saskatchewan and spent an evening tasting a few "Pops" . I remember Huston for a couple of reasons. He impressed me as a good guy and I was taken with the name Huston, so much so that I named my Son after him. I blew the spelling as his name is Houston, but no doubt the Name came from Huston Platt.
