I have recievied from the Alumni Association names and addresses (some email) of a little over 300 people who graduated from Oshkosh and lived in North Scott between fall l978 and spring l981. Some of you have relocated to all corners of the country, others still remain in Oshkosh. I have decided that I am going to contact people in the following way. If I have an email address for you, I will get around to sending out an email. If I only have a street address I will handle these in the following manner. If I know you, you will hear from me. If I think I know you or your name looks kind of familiar, you will probably hear from me. If I only know your nickname, I may need some help, and you may or may not hear from me. If you have moved far far away, you probably won't hear from me. No offense, just playing the odds. If somebody else knows you and I have any information, you will hear from them. And then there's the old luck of the draw--I've been dropping the pencil and taking my chances. If somebody else directed you here and you didn't get a personal invite, don't be bitter at me, just be happy you've gotten the info and plan on joining us in Oshkosh in October. Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Spent the day in Oshkosh yesterday, went to Kelly's, had a Magnet Dog--Great memories, food, not so much. Beer was good and cold though. Those of you who were there 12 or 13 years ago when we decorated the ceiling tile will be disappointed to learn that it is gone (roof leaks). However, we are invited back in October to make a new one. Not much more than that left on the Strip, things sure have changed.....

Upon review of the settings of this blog we are allowed up to 100 authors, so if you are interested drop me an email at Let me know the email address you would like to use (I guess they need it to enable you). I have to limit this to the next 98 people who are interested, so let me know asap. Thanks.

Just a couple of pictures of the finest athletes Oshkosh has produced......

Just received some pictures from Dan that I just had to get on here....I'm sure you all still look the same, too. If anyone has some good pictures for the blog you can send them to and I will get them put on here.

Spent the morning in Oshkosh today--a wonderful spring day....Met with Christine Gantner, head of the Alumni Association. She was very helpful. There is an entire day of events planned for the day, basically all we have to do is show up and have a good time. There is no parade this year, but a bike race instead. All are invited to participate. The homecoming breakfast is not at Pollack this year, but at the new Student Rec Center (quite the facility). They have a pre and post game tailgate party at what is called Tent City, set up right next to Titan Stadium. The football game against Point is at 1:30, the 5th Quarter is at The Hilton Garden Inn. There will also be campus and Scott Hall tours if one is so inclined.

Also received word Phil Lamers will be joining us at the reunion. Yeah!

Good evening to all....Spirits have been buoyed some by the fact that people are checking out the blog (although not dropping an email to lets us know if they are planning to join us or not). I have had some success tracking down some more names and plan on dropping another mailing soon. Also if you click on the pictures they will enlarge, making them easier to see. I have an appointment in Oshkosh with Christine Gantner (head of the Alumni Assoc) next Thursday, and I hope to have more to report then. Less than 200 days to go now.....

This is the flier I've come up with for the reunion (thanks Aleah). I'm going to use it as I contact more people. Anybody want changes made let me know asap before I get copies made. I'm also working on an "agenda", so if you have any ideas you want included--let me know. Sent out a bunch of letters last week, got zero response--disappointed, yes, deterred, never--will spend my time on others. Also if there may be somebody you'd like for me to try and track down, let me know! Have been pretty successful so far. I'm trying to set aside some time to visit Oshkosh to check in with the Alumni people---maybe in the middle of the month.....Less than 200 days to go now, won't be long.....
