West Coast Reunion
UPDATE: We have 21 Classmates in
Northern California that we've got valid contact information for.
Of those 21 Classmates, 19 of us are coming... and the other two have prior commitments to be out of state on that date. Plus 6 more from Seattle, Oregon, Los Angeles, and Arizona. What a tremendous response !

That's right -- we're doing it again. Only, this time it will be different. Of course !
Saturday afternoon, May 31, 2003
1 p.m. to around 6
Place: Bonnie G's home, Stanford, California (Palo Alto - SF Bay)

The Scene: Early afternoon drifting into the evening. A GREAT Lunch -- plus hors d'oeuvres, wine, and the like. Later, we'll go out to eat dinner at a restaurant near-by. On Sunday, there will be a spot picked for brunch (maybe Marcy's house) or a park setting for an outside gathering. And if people are coming in on Friday evening, we can do something then, too. We're loose.
Okay, so why May 31 ? Well, every date has its advantages and its less-than-advantages. By June, we run into graduations, vacations, and a marked dispersion in attention. From what we've heard so far, May 31st looks good. So let us know !
For those flying here, we've got some good hotels and can tell you about the possibilities. Similarly, if you need rides or shuttle service from your hotel, let us know. Or perhaps van-pooling from the City or from the East Bay, whatever. Several classmates have offered their homes for travelling Classmates. And many of the airlines have low-cost fares into San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland. (See: Horizon, Southwest). San Jose is the closest airport.
How many, and how much ? Our guess is perhaps 40 people, although you all may surprise us. Cost will be reasonable -- perhaps $31 per person for the afternoon portion; we'll see as we get closer.
Can we count you in ?
The sooner you can let us know that you are positively up for the enjoyment of this fun-and-friend-filled afternoon, the better it will be. Who can we believe will be there ? Bonnie, Fred, Jan, Billy, Howard, Wendy, Joel, Jeff, Ed, Cathy, Addie, Ken, Joe, Randy, Laurie, Neil, Betsy, Melissa, Harry, Lee, Melissa, Marcy, Peter, Eric, Tom, Paul ? Hmmm ?? More names = more momentum. Tell us soon, and it will be good for everybody.
