Mini-Reunions are whenever two or more Class of '69 classmates get together to talk about old times.
This page is devoted to telling their stories. PLEASE send in more stories and pictures to share the memories.
Some would say that there have been NO REUNIONS since 2004 for the 35th Annual.
Technically, that might be true if you only the count official big events that are carefully organized.
We think there have been many more gatherings that have been held on smaller scales and that might go unrecognized.
This page will attempt to bring those smaller gatherings to light, so please help by sending more details.
This was back in NOVEMBER 2011 in the Florida Keys
While it may appear that attendees were only interested in fishing, scuba diving and drinking beer, the truth is that important, high level
discussions took place regarding old classmates and speculation about how they are doing today. Generous amounts of time were devoted to organizing
other, future events which might become reality if there is enough interest.
ANY type of Reunion costs money. In the case of the Mini-Reunion listed above, we have all the records of costs.
We mostly just got in our vehicles and drove down to the Keys. It is about 1200 miles from WashDC to Big Pine Key, FL. Gas was $3.00 / gallon. ($180.)
Ed took a plane and flew into Ft, Lauderdale where we picked him up. Round trip was about $450. You can check flights at Kayak.com We stayed at the Old Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp. and we might add - Rates are pretty good in the Off-Season. On another, earlier occasion, we stayed at the Continental Inn which was Ocean Front, with a heated pool, more luxurious and at higher cost.
For those desiring nicer accommodations than at the Old Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp, then we highly recommend the Continental Inn. Maybe some classmates want to drive their RV down that way and there are places to park those, too. (Marinas are available for your boat, as well)
Meals or activities like a boating, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking or drinking beer obviously cost more. There is NO financial record of what we spent on that. All participants had a good time, so we decided to continue the same activities on an annual basis.
The whole point of this web site is to determine what kind of interest there might be for similar events.
There have probably been many other occasions where old Class of '69 Wildcats have gotten together an talked Old times.
How about sharing some of those experiences with the rest of the Class? Maybe something will result in more Mini-Reunions.
