Reunion information (past and future) will be found here.

NEXT REUNION

Too many things were going on in my life to plan the 2017 reunion, so I will now focus on the summer of 2018. Possible location would be Washington, D.C. or San Diego. When a questionnaire was posted on Facebook, the majority of people voted for San Diego. Please look below for things to consider and email me with feedback. Updates will be posted here.

Schedule:

  • Friday - TBD
  • Saturday Morning - TBD
  • Saturday Afternoon - TBD
  • Saturday Evening - Main Reunion Event
  • Sunday Morning - TBD

There are several things to be considered when planning future reunions.

  • Should it be held on the West Coast, East Coast, or in the Midwest?
  • What time of year and what weather can we expect at the selected location?
  • How much money will the crew pay for travel, hotel, and food?
  • Will the crew pre-pay to cover deposits required?
  • How many will show?

Your feedback is very important, please EMail your answers to the following questions: Will you travel to the West Coast, East Coast and/or Midwest? What is the maximum you would pay for hotel, main event and two additional meals? Are you willing to pay money upfront to cover event deposits? Will you attend a possible reunion in 2016? Would you like to help with planning?
