CHS Class of ’98 Reunion Update...

Hey All,

The official reunion dates are August 16th & 17th!! We have reserved a site at Blue Lake Park on Sunday the 17th from 8am to sunset. This will be your opportunity to bring your kids and show them off to the rest of your classmates or just mingle in a more casual setting. There will be grills for BBQ’ing, so B.Y.O.E (bring your own EVERYTHING). There is a playground for the kids, a horseshoe pit and some other fun stuff. Just a few restrictions: no pets and no alcohol, beer or wine. Yes, I know this sucks, but if you really feel the need to catch a buzz keep a cooler in your car and make an occasional pit stop.

The location for Saturday night is still TBD. Remember, check out www.98chs.com for periodic updates. I am going to post a list of the people that we are still looking for so if any of you can help us track down the people we would REALLY appreciate it!!

Thanks!!


Is it just me, or does this sound like a little less than a rockin' good time? Here's an opportunity to brag about yourself and then go hide to get drunk! Whee!

We did the picnic thing during the day and a fancy dinner at a hotel for my 10 year. It was lame. Just like high school.

The nice thing about the whole internet phenomenon is how you can find people from high school on MySpace and that helps you decide if you'll have a good time at the reunion. All of the popular girls are exactly the same - drink a lot, talk the same, hang out with most of the same people - I like to think I've moved on from that. And some of the people from HS that I liked are on MySpace as well, so I can just reconnect with them individually and I don't have to worry about dealing with the annoying ones!

But they didn't say anything about mixed drinks!

That officially sounds like the LAMEST reunion ever. What's a reunion without drunks?

I was sort of interested in going (this is my reunion, too) until: This will be your opportunity to bring your kids and show them off to the rest of your classmates

Because if you don't have kids, you have nothing to talk about, obviously.

Well, since it says the 16th and 17th, I'm thinking they're trying to nail down something schmancy the night before for just grownups. That would be better - drink your anxiety about what you must look like to your classmates away, and once you've gotten comfortable you can hang at the park the next day.

Yeah, while your classmates are ooh-ing and ah-ing over your kids, sneak away for a shot or two! That's all the rage at the MOPS group!

I'm sad I moved. I won't be able to go to any of the ones from CHS, and that's where all the people I know went.. :/


That park thing does sound lame, though. I guess you could at least make an appearance.

I wouldn't be sad if I'd moved, because I'm not going to be able to see most of the people I want to see anyway. I had friends who were older and younger than me that I won't be able to see, and I have a feeling there will be a lot of popular kids there and not a lot of normal people. I'm looking forward to the choir reunion though - Mr. Russell is retiring so a lot of people from his past choirs will be singing for him and hanging out. I think that'll be fun - I haven't gone back to the school since I graduated, I don't think, and it'd be kind of fun to roam the halls and see if I can remember where my locker is. (I don't.)
