Merry Holidays

Category: Miscellaneous — Chuck @ 10:04 pm

Merry Christmas and I hope you have a happy new year celebration. Not much to report right now. I’m just getting caught up after taking a few days off.

Anyone have any information they’d like to share?

Reunion Website Launched

Category: 30 Year Reunion — Chuck @ 10:12 pm

Spirit of 76Now I can let you in on the new website. Let’s call it the Spirit of ’76 to make it simple. You can use the link or type: into your browser.

Please visit even if you aren’t planning on attending the reunion and add your information to the Classmates section where there’s a link to a form to add your own information so we know what you’re up to. It’s painless. Trust me.

Let us know what you think.

New Website Being Prepared

Category: Miscellaneous — Chuck @ 8:52 pm

Spirit of 76Attention Rams Reunion fans. We’ve got another website for you. But I can’t give you the link yet until it’s ready. This is just a tease. Basically, this site will handle our registration and other duties of managing the reunion.

Our committee will be meeting again next week. Maybe I can post it then.

Planning Committee In Progress

Category: 30 Year Reunion,Miscellaneous — Chuck @ 6:44 pm

The planning committee is meeting as I’m writing. In fact, I’m dialed in on a conference call. Nancy says she’ll send me the actual meeting minutes and a picture of herself that I can share (don’t forget now).

Plans are firming up as I posted previously. I really don’t have much new to post right now. I think the main thing you can help with is to spread the word to any of our classmates that you are still in contact with and we’ll probably post lists of people we’re looking for too.

That’s all for now.

Reunion Update

Category: 30 Year Reunion — Chuck @ 9:47 am

Here’s the latest scoop from our fearless leader – Nancy Tatom.

We’ve been pricing out a very lovely cocktail cruise for Friday evening (Bennie’s found some larger vessels that originate in the Tampa Bay area and that will come down to Sarasota to dock at Marina Jack’s); for Saturday, we are looking into having a golf tournament, organizing a photo session at RHS, and hosting a dinner dance event at a great new place in the Lakewood Ranch area that will be catered by Morton’s (formerly Marabel’s Market); Sunday will involve some sort of casual get-together – hopefully near the water (this is the most vague event so far). The October timeframe will give us more time to plan and will also provide better pricing for some of the lodging and events we’ve looked into. Plus, the weather will be much more pleasant. We’re still working on the ticket prices per event, but should be able to lock this down by the first of the year.

The committee will be meeting again this coming Tuesday so please send us your input. Email me or Nancy or feel free to post a comment.

Help Make The Blog Better

Category: Miscellaneous — Chuck @ 9:43 am

Hello Rams Fans. This is a call for your assistance. I think we’ve been getting good feedback on the idea of our “Now & Thens.” In order for me to do them I need a current picture of you. Please don’t be shy. Inquiring minds want to see what you look like after 30 years. Be proud of your maturity.

Besides sending me pics another very useful thing would be to let other class members know about this website. Please pass it along and encourage them to visit.

Even if you don’t want to send me a photo (I promise I’ll make you look good) just tell me what you’re doing so I can let our other classmates know. And feel free to suggest things I can write about.
