The mid-winter seminar was held in November in Vancouver, Canada at the same time as the annual Queen's Ball. During the festivities at the Queens Ball, Canadian Examiner William Holmes lost his RCMP Dress Spurs. Les was appalled to think anyone would stoop so low as to steal from a Pony Soldier. Les commented in the newsletter that a search for his spurs centered around the Seattle area. It was rumored that a Queens Subpoena was going to be issued and that failure to respond would cause a Canadian warrant to be issued for the culprit. Years later, Dewey Gillespie told NPEA Historian John Clark that he seemed to recall that incident and in fact not only knew who the culprit was but reported that he knew where the hot spurs were at the time! At the spur of the moment Dewey then had a senior moment and forgot the culprits name. However, John Clark was left with the impression that the spurs may be located in a warmer climate these days.

The organization continued to grow, receiving a major boost in membership in 1968 after the 1968 presentation by Richard O. Arthur. He came to the summer seminar at the invitation of then president, John Jenkins. By 1969, the association had forty members from seven western states, Canada, and Alaska.

In the fall of 1967, facing dwindling membership, five remaining members, John Jenkins, Dewey Gillespie, George Harris, Art Roberts and Harold Stevenson, met in Yakima to discuss how to enlarge the organization. The organization was renamed the Northwest Polygraph Examiners Association and an invitation was sent to examiners in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Nevada, British Columbia, and Alberta, Canada to join the new organization.
