August 13 Report from the Reunion Committee

Quick status report on the Class of 1969 Reunion coming up in two weeks, and answers to some questions we’ve been receiving: we estimate our reunion mailings reached 95% of the class.

Turnout looks excellent, we expect attendance of around 150 for the Saturday night dinner dance. About half of the attendees are bringing a guest and half are coming solo. The Ports O’ Call Restaurant ballroom will accommodate 200, so if you haven’t yet registered there’s still room to join the party. The price is $89.

So far, we have classmates coming from Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and all over California.

As of today, at the Crowne Plaza LA Harbor Hotel you can still reserve a double for the discounted price of $109 if you ask for the “Rolling Hills High” group rate for August 28 and 29. Phone 310-521-8021. The two blocks of rooms we reserved at discounted prices at the Doubletree Hotel are sold out, but regular price rooms are still available there.

Drop James Allen an e-mail if you plan to join the Friday night pub crawl,
