TAPS – The Adventure Palace and Stadium patch – c.1989?

The Adventure Palace and Stadium, known by it’s acronym TAPS, was an indoor field in Santa Clara, run in the 1980s. I would guess this patch dates to the late 1980s.

Woodstalk in Santa Cruz was well known in the mid 1980s after it was featured in the Wall Street Journal.
