New for this week 03.29.2010

We’ve got a great new yearbook page from Johnny Hunt, and hopefully more on the way (have you sent your yet to get started on your yearbook page? Or, if you have the questions, please fill them out and send 'em back! Thanks!) The BIG NEWS is that online ticket purchase is now live! Please visit the ticket page to get yours today! Thanks, and have another great week!

New this week 03.22.2010

We’ve got new yearbook pages from: Scott Lasher, Rob Wheeler, and hopefully more on the way (have you sent your yet to get started on your yearbook page? Please do.) Also, we should have the online ticket purchase available sometime this week as well. If we have your email, we'll be letting you know when it's up and running. Thanks, and have a great week! Update: Online ticket purchase is going to wait until next week. It's ready to go now, but a certain volunteer webmaster is going on a family vacation for the next few days, and would rather be on hand when this goes "live" just in case there are any issues. Thank you for your patience...

Survey Says…

Thanks to all of you for taking our reunion survey!  We received 75 responses in all. We received some great feedback and will be making adjustments to the weekend’s activities.  We are working hard to accommodate everyone’s requests, but please recognize that we have a large class with varying opinions on what we should and shouldn’t do.

Some of these changes include lowering the ticket price to $65 per person.  While most of you (84%), felt that the previous ticket cost was appropriate, we are conscious of the fact that many of you have high travel costs to get here and that $150 for a couple to attend may be too much.

We are also cancelling the golf tournament.  With only a small number planning to play (less than 12%), it doesn’t make sense to host an entire tournament. Therefore, Christina will be making tee times for any of you who wish to play Saturday afternoon.  The golf registration form will be updated to reflect these changes.

We will not be having a lake cruise Friday night, but we are looking into reserving some reduced rate tickets for those of you who wish to take a cruise Saturday afternoon. Stay tuned for more information.

Survey Summary (75 responses total):

  • About 73% of respondents are planning to attend the reunion.  About 23% are still undecided.
  • Of those attending, almost 60% are bringing a guest, 12% are coming solo, and about 28% aren’t sure yet.
  • A small number, less than 12%, would participate in the golf tournament with another 30% undecided.
  • The cruise: Less than 30% want to have a cruise and nearly 65% said it wasn’t worth the additional cost.
  • 84% felt that the overall reunion cost of $75 for the weekend was” just about right”.
  • Almost 82% plan to participate in the entire weekend of activities. 12% plan to participate in Saturday night only and less than 7% will attend only Friday night.
  • 93% of those attending the reunion plan to stay with friends/family or already live here.
