Hi Neil, Please note that this is basically half of the attendees. Most are bringing dates. Do NOT wait too long as ticket sales have picked up drastically since June 1st and the people who've signed up but haven't sent payment yet aren't listed. Hope to see you there.

Only after you and Janet left did we do all the above.:) Alas, I found those so called trophy's that were in plain view on your credenza or some other funny name for a trophy cabinet. Which is'"Jeez I'M Good"! I found them by accident because I would have never believed that anybody who can't remember 1964, could be that good. I really thought they were for "pole vaulting". Then I got an image of JB doing a vault and...NO!!!!!! It won't fly Mr Kingy!:) I also noticed that you had these great "learning tapes", you know the one's that show you how to hold a "puu cuee". And remember the diamonds! Beside's, you never gave us a minute alone at your place until ZERO hour, when you and that good lookin girl left. JB...it's time you folks come north and find out what people do up here in the winter or summer, beside's the other thing. You have been challenged!! Come up or shut up!!! P.S. You never asked me if "I PLAY POOL"? I thought it was your job to take us to The Stick and Stein. John and the rest of you COUGS lives that we touched, all we had was fffuuunnn!!! Open invitation!!!! Anyone who would like to come up and challenge the EL, has an ivitation to do so :). Also a place to stay! Wee love ya man! MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU! But, I have to warn you, "I'm GOOD!

Message: Last night, unable to sleep because of the gut wrenching Laker loss, I was watching a VH1 special on Aerosmith. They were talking about an Aerosmith special that aired on ABC last year. Aerosmith wanted to use a portion of the "Livin' on the Edge" video in which Steven Tyler is wearing nothing but skin tone makeup and has his hands over his "package." ABC insisted that Aeromsith "cover up" this part of the video. Aerosmith had the last laugh because they went down to PINK'S, bought a hot dog, shot Tyler taking a bite out of the dog and then superimposed that shot over the location of the "package" I thought this information might add a little flavor to the Pink's run on Saturday -- which I have a 20% chance of attending depending on what happens with the Dodger/Angel game and the Kirk Gibson bobbing head dolls. [Speaking of Pink's, Which One's is playing another free HOB show on 7/28 -- e-mail me for details]

Message: Ah Dearest Yamma Lamma... Sorry to hear you & your sister can’t make another CT event (whew). I’m sure the Jensen boys will be heart broken again. BTW are you hanging around with the Felderbuster’s? Your accent is getting really twangy. Yes I am really excited about PROM NIGHT 2001. But alas, in regards to saving you a dance, I am afraid I will have to reserve that for another. Being that to dance with you would leave me dancing around alone out there on the dance floor. Since I am afraid you are truly a figment of our imaginations, and in light of that, our generation gave up dancing alone to our imaginations when chemical inducements went out of style some time ago. Sharon I will be looking forward to getting my invitation to our class reunion. It will save me from donning my protest, picketing outfit. Hey John should I bring my CDs & CD player to PINKS???? Long live all Cougars!
Probably not Walter, as it might be tough to set up. Thanks anyway......

Message: Another PROM NIGHT memo.. I see that Sloey and Sharon Moore are having the same prob. I am.. It's a small one and easily corrected. Here's the run down for the " 3 SEPARATE EVENTS" taking place in the month of August at the Marriott Manhattan Beach.
AUG. 11 - '69-'72 class reunion
AUG. 17 - '66 class reunion
AUG. 18 - PROM NIGHT (open to all alumni)
You can find links to all of them in the reunion section of Cougartown.. or just arrow up to the banner in feedback to find the Prom Night banner. We didn't mind them all being so close together as we knew that some alumni would be traveling from long distances and would want to get in on 2 events while they were in town.. So look at it as, PROM NIGHT as "The Grande Finale" if you're attending your reunion. And now, I'm back to the mailbox to stand watch for the mailman..
Judy Wudy.. On a mission
p.s. Larry Harris, I grew up on 118th St & Sundale, but I don't remember you. I remember David & Karen Winkley, Gene & Mary Gutierrez. You'd better show us at Prom Night so I can see who you were--or are--or wannabe.

Message: For Lanny Harris, yes, I remember the whole Gutierezz family. Mary was a year behind me but we had business classes together. Vickie was the switchboard operator when I first attended HHS. My sister probably knew Shelby as she also graduated from Leuzinger in '53. Gene Gutierezz and my brother have remained good friends and are still in touch. Also, I think Gene still has the '63 Lincoln mentioned earlier. It's really neat to see all of us reconnecting with our old neighbors and friends and remembering the old neighborhoods. I know 133rd Street was very special but my street, 137th was pretty neat too. We had David, Donald, and Larry Cole, Hal and Jaye Lyn Stonbraker, Newell and I, Mike, Jerry, and Monica Bollin, Patti Rice, and the Jepsens. Probably others I didn't get acquainted with. There is now a park where my house stood and the neighborhood has really changed with the addition of several 4-plexes! But the memories are still great. Look forward to seeing everyone at Prom Night.

Message: It's 1966 and if you don't own a car you better have a bike. There was your usual collection in the parking lot. Hondas, Yamahas and Suzukis. Then there were us no names a Ducatti, Bultaco, a Hodaka, and me on the Bridgestone (see the parking lot page in the 67 Elmo).
I bought the bike for the outrageous list price or $399. It was fast (at that time for 90cc) 68mph just like it said in the brochure. My dad worked in the aerospace industry for a company that made instruments and cameras for satellites. They were experimenting with more earthy applications for lubricants they were using and I volunteered my bike.
After reassembly and break in I was anxious to prove its worth. I jumped on the SD Freeway and ran it for all it was worth. The speedometer which read to 80 mph was pegged, as I exited at Rosecrans I was stopped by the CHP, who also had a Honda Scrambler pulled over and was citing him. When I asked why I was stopped the Officer stated they were looking for a kid with no helmet and shorts doing 84 in the fast lane. Being 17 and full of (being 17), I had the nerve to ask why he had stopped me. He replied because you have to have at least 15 horsepower to ride on the freeway. 17 year old me had to ask why again. The officer replied, "that's pretty obvious you're not fast enough to keep up with traffic."
I think that is when I learned the difference between being 17 and being stupid. I pushed my bike down the ramp. The lubricaton called Microseal was used in a record setting Suzuki Hustler at Ascot and in Andy Granetelli's Novis at Indy. I wasn't quite so embarrassed about the B/S Emblem on the gas tank after that.

Walking distance to great dining, surfing, beautiful beaches, etc. The hottest tip though is to make dinner reservations at Chez Pauls just south of Lahaina.

Message: No trip to the Islands is complete without a side trip over to Kauai. While Lahaina is nowhere near as spoiled as Oahu, it's getting more and more commercialized every year. If you want to see the REAL Maui, rent a jeep and take the Hana Highway to the end. But also make sure you budget a couple of days for Kauai. My recommendation for lodging there is the Coco Palms in Kapaa. You get to stay in a real thatch hut (very plush), with conch shell sinks, and a private outdoor spa.(Leave the kids at home) there's a swim up bar in the pool, and you can fish right from the porch of your "room". (although the "trophy" fish is only about 5 inches). A drive up to Kawaikini is a must, (bring a jacket, the temp drops about 40 degrees) along with a roll on the beach at Hanalai, ala "The Thornbirds". Aloha!

Message: Maui - Since I was there exactly one year ago today, let me share "my favorite place to stay" with all of you. Get a group of friends together and rent Randy Travis' estate on the outskirts of Lahaina. Beautiful grounds, koi pond, pool, jaccuzi, pool house, bbq, polynesian architecture, you can rent the whole place for about $1000 a night (but if you have a group of 10 friends sharing the expense, it's really affordable. Walking distance from all the shops, restaurants and tourist traps of Lahaina, and across the street from a beautiful quiet beach that's perfect for watching the sun go down. Exceptional. I highly recommend it.
Sounds like I smell a Cougartown party brewing in Lahaina.

I hung out at the Pool Hall with the Berry and Dunn brothers (and other drop-outs). Most of you probably remember my brother Henry (Rick). I'm the good-looking one. I use to hang with Doug Gonzalez, Mike Clark, and deaf-mute Charlie. Here's a memory: we had a party at our place on 118th street. The police came, Mini started a riot, and we all went to jail. When it was time to make my phone call, there was no one to call. Everyone I knew was either in jail or out in the lobby! Good times..good times...HaHaHa...

Message: ATTENTION CLASS OF 1966. THE PROM IS NOT THE REUNION! Many of us received a mailer about the "66-67 HHS Prom nite" It is NOT the 66-67 Prom it is for ALL classes. The 1966 reunion is the night before August 17, 2001, at the Manhattan Beach Marriot. If you have mistakenly thought you were going to the reunion but signed up for the prom contact John or me and we can get this rectified. The reason they are back to back was to allow out of towners the opportunity to attend both events. 1966 reunion is August 17, 2001, Friday.
That's how Jan keeps track of which Alumni List has been sent the Prom Message.
Cougartown Prom Night and the Class of 1966 Reunion are 2 different events that are held one day apart at the same venue.
