    Ok. I have already broken out in a sweat just thinking about it.

    Any CF got some words of advice?

    Hope you don't have any overdue library fines. I can't even figure the amount with the juice still running.

    My Dad had his this year too....

    He said the last 3 or so 5 years marker reunions have been enjoyable, especially his 50th. People really have moved past how much they can drink phase and the look how successful I am phase to remembering and sharing.

    Everybody got older, so don't worry about appearance.

    Have fun.. I am sure their are many good stories from your high school years you can talk about.

    I have had pretty good luck with Old Spice. Right Guard also makes a pretty good spray

    True story- A buddy of mine and I used to golf a lot early Sunday mornings in Lowden. We were almost always first ones on the course.

    Once there had been a Clarence-Lowden class reunion the night before at the country club. Before we had gotten to the 4th hole we had found a bra, a matching bra and panty set, and a used you-know-what next to two fresh cigarette butts (3 separate locations).

    There could not have been more than 40 people in that class and 3 sets of then hooked up?? wow

    Just be glad you're still on the right side of the dirt and have a good time. I went to my fifteen year reunion last summer and out of a 36 person class we've already lost two.

    Class reunions befuddle me. I still keep in contact with the ones I want to maintain a relationship with. Everyone else, meh, don't really care if I see them again.

    Make sure that hiring the official photographer is your duty, and yours alone. Don't want some no-talent hack mucking it up.

    40 (last summer) was better than 30 re alcohol consumption...but the organizers must be independently wealthy. The "discount" rooms in the block at the reunion hotel were $210 per night. Needless to say, we didn't stay there. :)
