I will let Nancy tell you all about it.

Aloha to all of you '58 Bucs!  

The five day party to celebrate our 50th is just two and a half months away!!!  And, WE NEED YOU THERE!!!
IT IS TIME TO START OILING UP THOSE KNEE JOINTS AND BIKE PEDALS!!!  BECAUSE ON OCTOBER 6TH WE HAVE THE HISTORIC "MBHS '58 BUCCANEER BIKE AND WALK ON MISSION BAY"  AND...  THE "BIG 5-0" LAST LUNCHEON AT THE MISSION BAY HILTON HOTEL'S ACQUA                   RESTAURANT.  These are the final events of our reunion, and, you guessed it, WE NEED YOU THERE!!! 
These will be very casual (bordering on organized chaos) events, with the emphasis on visiting with small groups of classmates on whose lives you still need to catch-up.  CHUCK MC GREGOR WILL LEAD THE WALK, AND I WILL LEAD THE BIKE RIDE, beginning at 9:30 AM, Monday, October 6, on the bay side of the Hilton Hotel, between their pool area and boat concession.  Actually, CHUCK & I will START the walk/ride...  Then you can walk or ride at your own pace, falling in with others with similar paces, and go for as short, or as long, a bike or walk as you wish!  
Some classmates have already told me that they intend to go a half block, or so, to the first available park bench or tree, and sit down for some serious visiting!  The avid walkers can continue with Chuck toward De Anza Cove & return back to the Hilton by 11:20.  
Gaylord "Duke" and I will probably bike for eight to ten miles north along the bay, then west by DeAnza Cove, the golf course & the high school; then south through Crown Point, on the bay and over the bridges, by Sea World, and back to the Hilton, where, hopefully, all reunion attendees will meet on the bay side boardwalk by the boat concession at 11:20.  Then, we will go in to the Acqua restaurant for lunch at 11:30 AM.  (Sandwiches, Salads with chicken, or shrimp, etc., and Burgers average $13.00 in price).

Remember, If you don't choose to bike or walk, just meet the gang on the Hilton's bay side boardwalk at 11:20. Then go in to lunch at the Hilton's Acqua restaurant!  The fun thing about this 50th reunion is the fact that there will be several very informal events, as well as the Saturday night dinner-dance.  So, it will be much easier to visit with many more people than at past reunions.

Please let me know that you will join us on the 6th for one or both of these events!!!  (We need to know the number of people for lunch!)  My email is nla@hawaii.rr.com.  Shoot me a newsy note with your RSVP.

With much aloha and warm regards,  Nancy Albright Albright,   Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii,  808-345-6487


P.S.  I hope that you are checking out our class' very own website, www.taroga.org  on a regular basis!!!  Bill Rice did such an awesome job of creating it, and maintaining it for several years.  Then Vicki Paul took it over until her passing.  Now,  Marie Gilmour Davila is doing a great job with it!  The home page has the 50th Reunion events, and their chairpersons' names and emails, listed.  Please reply to each of these with your RSVP's.
