    Friday OT #2 - High School Reunions

    This question was brought to us by CycloneRulzzz.

    Have you had a high school reunion? Did you go? Would you go again in the future?

    I haven't gone to mine, not sure if I'll go in the future. It seems like there's not a lot of activity at them.

    Had my 25 year last year. Yes, I'm ancient. But it was a good time. Not that I wanted to see everyone, but I caught up with 6 or 7 friends that I hadn't talked to in years.

    Re: Friday OT #2 - High School Reunions

    Yes and yes. Mostly because I have a few really good friends from college that live a ways away and they come back for them. So really it's more of a college reunion. I see all my regular friends from high school enough tthat I don't know I'd go if it weren't for college.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Thanks to Facebook, I already know who got fat. So with that out of the way, not really any need to go to them.

    Never been. Never will. No body I'm interested in seeing will be there.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Friday OT #2 - High School Reunions

    I brought this up because this weekend is our 15th. For the 5 year there was a family pot luck then a Saturday night event at a local bar. Didn't go to the pot luck and wasn't planning on the bar event because I was a nobody in high school for most part and figured people didn't change. I went to the bar event and found people who never talked in high school talking like best friends. So now I'm all in. Tonight our class is doing a bonfire on a classmates farm, family potluck tomorrow at noon afternoon is misc. activities, and a Saturday night we have a local bar reserved for us.


    CF SURVIVOR 4 WINNER!

    Re: Friday OT #2 - High School Reunions

    There were 22 kids in my graduating class. I've been to the 10, 20th, and am headed to the 25th this weekend. For the 20th I think we had 18 of the remaining 21 attend which is pretty impressive since 1/2 are out of the state now. I think it really helped that we were such a small/close class. It's great to see everyone and I wouldn't miss it.

    This. I didnt go to my 10 because honestly I still talk to the people I care most about. Some of them went to it and reported that everyone basically sat in their highschool lunchroom table groups. Pretty amusing. My wife and I went to her class's reunion. She graduated a couple of years before me. Her class had a ton of db's in it but most of them didnt show. I was friends with a lot of people in her class...probably more than I had in mine so it made the event more tolerable.

    25 yr reunion coming up next month. There is an informal get together in town at a bar on Friday that we will go to, but I won't attend the "formal, have to pay $35 a person dinner and booze event" on Saturday. I went to the 10 year, but that is all.


    Are you a member?

    Re: Friday OT #2 - High School Reunions

    I went to my 35th in 2011. It was the same weekend as the ISU/UCONN game so I decided to go to both because I wouldn't have gone for just the reunion.
    I really only knew about 10 people there and it was actually a pretty good time. There was about 430 in my class so there were people there that I had no clue who they were and they had no clue who I was.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
