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?

A:        YES!   

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.
