From time to time there will be surveys and  polls to get input on activities, dates, pricing etc.  Also if you have contact information on any of our "missing classmates" listed please let them know about the site and join the fun.  I'll be posting suggestions from other reunions, pics of possible venue locations, caters, reunion activities etc.

The email section of this site has been updated to include the newest members. 

I'm in contact with other classmates that are wanting to help and/or planning to come.  Frankie Grimmett has contacted Tommy Bullard, O.L. Cooper and Max Moreland with excellent responses.  I talked to Steve Moffett in Lubbock awhile back and he is on board.   Also Jan Raines said that Jerry Raines is planning on coming.  Vicki Bell and Regina Ellis also are helping. 

All in all, it looks like were are going to have I great response, sooner or later. 

I met with the owners of Blackwood BBQ ref. the Sat night dinner.  They are on board.   We will have the place to ourselves, served on-site BBQ - 2 meats, two veggies, bread and drink.  Fountain drinks and tea the remainder of the night included.  

Friday night it was decieded to have a mixer at the Butcher Block resturant.  We have two rooms reserved, cash bar, appetizers etc.  

Will be adding a survey requarding the golf outing to guage the interest. 

Other activities will be added to this site when they are finallized.  

Thanks for all the help.  Please keep in touch and give your input. 

 

 

Had an excellent first reunion planning meeting in Snyder this weekend.  Thanks to all that attended.  Special thanks to three members of the Class of '69 for attending and being part of our planning. 

Big item was setting the date for the reunion.  Based on the results of our online survey and the consensus of those in attendence the weekend of  October 5, 6th was selected.  We know that may not be optimal for everyone but no date is.  That week is early enough that the weather should be conducive to outside activites if scheduled. 

If available, the Blackwood B'B'Q location was tenatively selected for the Saturday dinner.  It's large, causal atmosphere, inexpensive and the carter service would be on-site. (see Venue Section of this page).  I will be contacting them today to check availbilty and try to negotiate us a "deal".  When complete I will update this information on the site. 

As far as activities Friday and Saturday go we tenatively shedulded the following events.  It still a long time until the reunion so these activities can be added to, changed or whatever as we go along. 

Golf Tournament - First thing we will do a survey on this site to determine if there is enough intrest to have a tournament.  If there is  Vic Chambers is helping with this event.  We discussed maybe having in on Friday to open up Sat for other activites for all.  Survey to follow.  

Saturday Morning -  Will have a bus tour of Snyder.  Start out at the High School with a guided tour of the old and the new.  See if you can find your locker (if they still have lockers).  From there to the Scurry Co. Museum for a tour.  Then a narrated drive though town highlighting icons from our school years (Travis, Lamar, Thrill Hill, Sweet Shop etc) and new additions to Snyder. Lots "I remeber when....." stories during this portion of the tour.  Next a stop at Triangle Sinclair for a "coke social" with 60's music, vintage '68 car for photos.  Last stop Historical Heritage Village by the coliseum for another tour.  Then we'll find a place for a light lunch.

Discussed perhaps for those so inclinded to meet in mid afternoon at the Tiger Bowl.  I'll go by and see if we can get "a deal" there as well. 

Saturday Night - Dinner and banquet at Blackwood B'B'Q (see Venue).  It was decied to limit decorations to old pictures, annuals and other memorabilia and not spend alot on banners, centerpieces, flowers  and the like.   Food to be provide by Blackwood (excellent BBQ) at a resonable price (more on that below).  Committee will be selected to provide the reunion program for the dinner.  I'm thinkin' Pam Cumbie would be a natural.  Norman Cannon has agreed to handle the music, so all complaints to be directed to him. Vicki Minor (Bell) is looking into photo booth.  

Friday Nigt Get-together -  Couple of options at this time. First is getting a room or two at the Butcher Block (restaruant in old train depot east of sq).  Cash bar and light appetizers.

Second option -  Hayride in country to bluff overlooking Deep Creek for outside social .  Veiw is exceptional for Scurry Co.  BYOB.  Christie Devers, a proffessional executive chef by the way, and her husband Rick have volunteered to prepare prime rib for this event.  I'll  put details of both options on this site. 

We re-emphsised the importance of getting as many classmates as possible to a least sign up on this site so we have contact info.  Please if you are in contact with any class member that has not signed up try to shame them into signing up.   Charles Armstead is a member on Classmates.com and stated that many of our class were member on that site.  Charles will try and direct them to this site.  shs68.com

Christie also agreed to be a co-administrator on this site.  As we get committees together later there will be other co-admins. 

I will be updating this site to reflect details on all the events etc that have been decieded.  Please check periodically for updates.  

Now I have some good news and some bad news.  First, the bad news - 

As with everything else in this old world, reunions cost money.   We are doing our best to keep the individual cost at a very minimum for everyone and still have a great experience.  But there is room rentals, food, drinks, security, banking charges, bus, and the like that are a reality.   I will be adding the Donation Section to the site soon.  At this site you can make donations to the reunion via PayPal or credit card.  Of course, nothing is required but we can all pitch in a little to off set the inevitable cost.  I w

Now the good, no great, news !!    We have a white knight riding in on a tiger.  Classmate Perry N. Henderson attended the planning meeting.  Perry very graciously offered to pay for the room rental ($500) and meals for everyone for the Saturday night dinner, a total of around $2,000 !  Don't know what to say but "thanks".   I will be setting up an account for us at a local bank to handle all donations.  I'll post all transactions on this site.   BUT, as great as this is, don't put it all on Perry or a few others.  Do your part, there are other expenses and we might even have enough left over for our next reunion.   Like any telethon any amount will help - $5, $10, $20 or whatever.  

We will have another meeting in a couple of months, until then lets use this site for back and forth communication about our 50th 

Thanks to everyone - Lynn
