Event description

Description

"I just hope that future seniors will be as cool as us seniors were."
- Corey Skarperud, June 1989.

REGISTRATION FOR WELCOME RECEPTION AND BBQ ENDS MAY 31

REGISTRATION FOR DINNER BANQUET ENDS JUNE 20

There's nothing we can do about those who came after us, but we can certainly break away from our busy lives of adulting, forget about the stresses of the present, and get together for the first time in ten years--thirty years after graduation. This year, we're hoping our cohorts from the classes of 1988 and 1990 will triple the fun and join us, since we have so many friends that spanned more than just the class of '89.

We also have some new ideas for the dinner banquet. For starters, we've invited the Amazing John Amidon to be a guest speaker and astonish you with his highly acclaimed magic show. Alas, no dessert will be provided. If you love the good stuff, then bring cash (or check), as we'll be doing a delicious dessert auction instead of including it in the meal. Dessert will be served by your favorite classmate to the highest bidding tables and we'll donate the proceeds to Raise for Rowyn, a local Olympia Charity that helps families financial and emotionally after suffering the loss of a child.

Finally, we're always looking for new ways to connect and, since this will be happening over Lakefair weekend, we're inviting everyone to consider running as a group in the 8k fun run. Don't worry about speed; we'll break into grooups based on ability after meeting up at the start line.

Everyone is looking forward to seeing you. Sign up for as many or as few events as you'd like. Make your reservations before Halloween, as prices go up on November 1 and again on May 1. If you're from out of town, please stay at the Hotel RL (Red Lion on the west side) and take advange of the group rate. See tickets for details.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: TELL YOUR FRIENDS!


FAQ:

When is the reunion?

We're currently booked from July 19, 2019 to Sunday, July 21. Events are scheduled on Friday and Saturday, with an impromptu brunch expected on Sunday for those staying at the Red Lion. You can participate in as many or as few as you like.

How much does it cost?

Some of the events are charged per person (you + optional spouse) and other events are free. Special activities, such as the Lakefair run and hotel accommodations, will require additional registration (see ticket's for details). The activities are open to everyone from all the classes. Public events, like the fun run, are open to anyone that wants to associate with us, so tell anyone you like--even rival high schools.

IMPORTANT: In order to reserve the event space more than 90 days in advance, we need at least 40 people to book at least one hotel night, so please consider a short stay-cation with your classmates. Classmates from all classes (88, 89, and 90) are invited to book hotel rooms on either Friday or Saturday nights (or both).

Why did we invite 88 and 90?

Many of us have friends in either or both classes that we'd like to see again, Traditional reunions are focused on a single class instead of a group of cohorts. It'll be interesting to see turnout. 88 might be burned out, having just had theirs, but we did a small get-together in December 2017 with all three classes and feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

What's up with the fun run?

We're looking for new ways to connect with each other. Some people have asked for activities where they can connect with a smaller group, as well as activities not centered around drinking and eating. Lakefair is already happening, so why not piggyback on the festivities.

What's up with the dessert auction? Can't we just have Petit Fours like everyone else?

We're not like everyone else. :) We like intrigue, competition, and overly-delicious food. The primary purpose behind this idea is to raise some dough for a charity in the community we grew up in and in which many of us still call home. It's a chance for us to collectively give back.

We're looking for 8-9 classmates to show off and prepare a fancy dessert that they will serve to the highest bidding table. Remember: this isn't bargain shopping. We're hoping to have a little fun and raise a big chunk of change for our community. If you'd like to make a dessert, let the committee know (ohs-89@outlook.com).

What if I don't like anyone from High School?

Come anyway. You may be suprised how many people really would love to see you. If you don't believe that, then I guess you probably should consider doing something else that weekend. But you wouldn't have read this far if you were really thinking that, right?
