Message: Some advise and a question; I saw the information on the Santa Monica event and my advise is to hit Chez Jay's Bar and Cafe across the street from the Hotel. This place is amazing and named best neighborhood bar every year by LA Magazine. The question is what happened at the event in Long Beach? Whatever happens in Long Beach stays in Long Beach, or are you all still recovering?

Message: Hi all....as Sloey mentioned, the baseball team lost the playoff game friday against Culver City. We were holding our own till the last couple of innings. I must say, the umpiring was absolutely horrible, against both teams!! They kicked our pitcher out in the 7th inning for hitting a batter (said it was intentional)...now, why would one purposely hit a batter with the bases loaded??? Oh well, they should be proud of themselves, they played well this year. Keith: my daughter took alot of pics this season, I'll get her to send some to John for posting.

Message: To all reunion goers. I had planned to be with you tonight, but my attention is currently being diverted to the Gulf and Middle-East.

Message: Hats off to the Catalina reunion staff for turning this one around. I'm sure it was a night mare. Like your wedding dress not being delivered in time for your wedding. We are so sorry we can't make it to the reunion. We spent our time in Calif. during the winter being snow birds but had to return home the first of April for the winter clean up. YUCK Don't know how winter can make such a mess but it sure is beautiful now. I love the spring time when everything starts budding. No place like Minnesota. Well you all have a great time tonight. It sure would have been great to see all of you again. Get lots of pictures. Donnie Burns keeps us posted on a lot of things that are going on out there. Thanks Donnie and thanks to John for this great sight. Looking forward to hearing about how the Reunion went.

Message: We are doing GREAT on the Escrip, Albertsons and Target signups, but PLEASE don't stop now- the only way these programs work is to get bunches of people signed up on the program, because the margins are very slim. If you need ANY HELP signing up for any of these let me know. Albertsons in particular is confusing so I've written a step-by-step instruction on how to sign up. Let's have a contest, see which class can get the most number of signups by the end of May. Maybe we can come up with a prize of some sort- maybe a special "brag box" on the feedback page honoring that class? Maybe overstepping myself here, that's really JB's department. The important thing is that WE NEED YOUR HELP! Fella's, if you leave this stuff to your wife, have her email me and I'll set you up myself. It really is FREE money, folks, and the more of us who participate, the more we help HHS!

Message: Hey John, Barney here, I saw your posting that the reunion will now be at the Hyatt in Long Beach and we have called CTC to see about our refunds for the Catalina Hotel and Boat ride over there. Do have any idea how many people were supposed to be there? My wife and I came from San Antonio, Texas and this is a big disappointment for everyone I'm sure. We spent the night with Jim and Karen Essner and found out about the fire this morning. By the way, Jim and Karen will now be going with us, since it is now at the Hyatt, will they be able to get tickets at the door? Please let me know. I am using their computer and the email address is: email@example.com Barney McArdleClass of 1958

Message: Great job to the reunion organizers for getting something together so quickly! I'm impressed. Good work. Speaking of reunions, first I want to say Hi to Louise St. George and thank her for lighting a fire under the class of 77. The deadline for tickets at the $85 per person is approaching quickly (May 19th). I can be persuaded, bribed, sweet talked into extending that deadline if I get enough emails asking me to. We want as many people to come. Again, I will work with you to make it happen, but you need to ask me for help. To the 50 year reunion folks, have a great time! If your reunion was held in a paper bag, I know you would have a blast. After all it's not where you have it that's important, it's the people you reconnect with and share memories with. As for Escript, I am asking that the class of 1977 do their part, last I saw we had 3 people signed up for this, surely we can do better! One more thing; the golf tournament is next Saturday, please golfers, send in your fee's and if you haven't signed up yet, and want to play, please email me. We are also getting together next Friday night at Gaetano's and that will start at 6:00. A lot of Cougar happenings going on. Have fun.

Message: Thanks for the good wishes on Sunday, I assume that was for me. You can all come to Sloeys' in Solvang but Ernie is the only one home. I don't know if he'll let you into the house or not. But you're welcome to try. We use to have a hidden spare key but someone had to use it and I don't think we have put it back. I think the 3:00 Cougar baseball game at HHS would be a great start for your weekend. Go Cougs!
