at least 100 people werethere! People stayed until well after dark and
the staff was cleaning up around us! Great seeing everyone again! Many
thanks to Ray Pulsifer for being our great MC! Thank you to everyone who

of fun! Check the Photo Gallery for pictures from the Saturday

(Porter) Gravitt and Denise (Zolotoff) McGinty. We haven't had time to
post bios yet, but will after the Sunday picnic.
Sunday starts at 1 PM at Bryant ark. Please note that the Sunday picnic
is NOT potluck. Bring what you need for yourself and to feed the people
you are bringing to the picnic. That means provide your own food, drinks,
dishes and eating utensils. Our reunion budget isn't enough to cover food
or place service, sorry! Your food should be prepared and ready-to-eat.
There are BBQ grills at the park, but we won't be manning them. Anyone
who is willing to tend a grill, and clean-up afterwards, is welcome to
use it on their own!

are people bringing for Door Prizes so far? Dale Ballou May is bringing
a panda t-shirt from the San Diego zoo. Lance Leonard is bringing something
called 'Real Networks', from a company in Seattle. He says it "allows
one to download and burn a CD. It's a sampler, so it gives you access
for 30 days and I believe the cost per song to download is 50 cents each....
It's pretty cool!" We're asking everyone who comes to Ciddici's Saturday
night to bring a Door Prize, something nice under $10, (not a gag gift).
keep spreading the word that the reunion is Saturday AND Sunday to as
many classmates as you know. There is golf on Saturday, the evening social
at Ciddici's pizza place on Saturday, and the Sunday picnic at Bryant
Park. All events are "No Host" - pay your own way. Bring
your own blanket, food, drinks and beer to the Sunday picnic. We will
have Door Prizes at Ciddici's-maybe something for Sunday picnic too if
we get enough sponsorships to help fund more. Spouses, former teachers
& staff, and students from behind or ahead of us in years are welcome
to these reunion functions! Also, students we went to school with, but
for some reason or another didn't make it all the way to graduation are
very welcome! We want to see as many classmates as possible! West

to catch up with any of those students too! More information on the West

a developer writing software used in the development of hardware. We all
enjoy the outdoors (hiking, skiing, biking, swimming, playing in the ocean,

a listener...). The dogs are more into frisbees, but are perfectly willing
to chase a stick or a tennis ball if its all that is available. Saturday
is pretty unlikely, but I'm going to try and make it (i.e., with one of
the girls -- my wife and our other daughter have a previous engagement)
