BAR43 Note from Kerry

April 6, 2013

By popular demand, 2013 BALTA reunion cost will not exceed $300. Open dates for 23 properties reviewed are good for October 15-21, but I will ask for thoughts on that—maybe a Sunday to Sunday venue, which will eliminate several properties from consideration though. I am meeting agents and looking at 3-5 homes on Tuesday morning. I’m trying to make sure that accommodations are somewhat equal in quality as has not always been the case.

Much has been said about the late date, but back last year when I volunteered, The Heid said that I could just sit for nine months and then get busy—of course that was on the bus on the way back from beer and wine at wherever it was that we did the Octoberfest thing so she might not remember—or my ears heard something different–whatever…

I reviewed several reunion year announcements on the blog and did note on one that reservations/sites were not finalized until June, so I think I might be OK here.Additionally, for this particular reunion, deposits were due and were paid by 40 or so people well before the accommodations were selected and there didn’t seem to be any criticism. Soooooo–stop the ragging on not paying up before site selection!! Besides, the NJ shore is empty in October, and as Dee has said, we’re the only people on the planet that want do vacation in October……..

I’ve received 22 comments on here from people who it sees will attend and I’d like to hear from you now-officially—that you will attend—–reunion central will be as before, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There will be leeway several days and after for people to stay longer if they wish, as a week will be paid up.

More later.

Shea’s cross-country trip update

October 6, 2007

Hi Dee

Just thought I’d let the group of pessimists in our midst know that the old tub made it to SF through cloudless desert days to a blizzard at Donner pass… And Dan and I are still friends!

The return trip is coming up next week.
