OK, so here is a bit more about the reunion event:
First: register if you haven't yet!
This really helps us out by being able to give real numbers to the food suppliers (and pay them)! Send a check to Sue, her address is on the post card, or call me!Thurs
: the hike is shaping up. I walked it the other day and it was beautiful and fun - took about 1 hour plus a little more if we stroll, explore, rest a bit, swim (maybe?!). Funny story, at second dam, picture this, a fire ring scar at the waters edge, a few empty beer cans, beer caps, part of somebody's shoe, and a used package of ZigZag papers! I thought to myself, "hey, I haven't been here in a decade, but it looks like I was here last night! So far it looks like we might get a dozen or so for the hike. Parking is tricky near Giles St, so, if you want to meet a little early (say 3:30) at the Vinyard parking lot, you can park there and I will shuttle folks to the start (easier to get your car at the end, too).
Oh, a reminder, the little hike back out to Rt 79, we'll technically be trespassing, but I am confident that we'll manage just fine!! (it is good to test (ok, break
) the rules - remember!!)Friday
: 6:30 to start collecting at Boatyard. BEFORE THAT
, if so inclined, GoGone is playing at Castaways for a happy hour sort of thing. it is free and they are a fun and great band to listen and dance to (Scott Wiggins is the drummer). I'll be there!Sat
: BBQ at Meyers Point. Bring stuff to swim if it is a nice day, sun screen, etc. Sat PM
: 8PM - late, fun at Castaways. We'll have a DJ (Jim Avery), and the plan is to have music that is: oldies night at the North Forty, meets The Nines, meets The Haunt. Rocking fun, good dancing, and great listening. It gets hot in there, so be prepared to strip )a little or a lot) and sweat! (oh yeah, it is also an "open class and friends" event, so if you have pals from other class years or who you know are going to be in town, let them know and have them come along!Sunday
: Still working on that, but am hopeful that we'll at least get a partial look around the HS. There is evidently a lot of construction, so they are a little wary about having folks hanging about. I say either way we storm the place and we'll see what we can!
All weekend I plan to have a book available with address and contact information available to check, confirm, update, etc. This cycle of contacting folks was more challenging than last time!
Can't wait to see you all!
