Class of '90
20-Year Reunion ― September 25, 2010
Hey, Class of 1990, the 20-year reunion is less than 3 months away!
Q: Are you kidding? 20 years? Has it been that long?
Q: OK, I’m interested. Where? When?
A: The reunion will be on campus. Homecoming, Saturday, September 25, 2010.
Q: Sounds great – I want details!
A: Absolutely. Class brunch, 10:30 – 12:30 in The Dive. If you close your eyes you might be able to picture “Days of Our Lives” on the TV. Cost is $10 (that’s cheap). We’ll move to the Hospitality Tent from 12:30 -1:30. The tent is located just north of the new football field. Beverages (soda, water, beer, wine) are available for purchase. The game starts at 1:30 -- Gustavus vs. St. Olaf.
Q: Is there anything exciting happening during halftime?
A: Funny you should ask! Doug Dittbenner will be kicking field goals as halftime entertainment. Serious, though. Entertainment.
Q: Can I bring my family?
A: Of course! Spouses, SO’s and kids are welcome.
Q: What about after the game? What happens then?
A: After the game the “5th Quarter” will be held in the tent across from the football field, 3:30 – 6:30. Admission is free and there will be a band (Rockin’ Hollywoods) and complimentary chips and salsa from Chipotle. Also Buffalo Wild Wings, pizza, beer, and root beer will be available for purchase. All ages welcome!
Q: And after that?
A: The bar? Just a guess.
