Random picture of "Johnny Rebs" here....almost looks like a quarter barrel, but that can't be because those are not allowed in the dorms, are they....besides, I have no idea how you could get one up to seventh floor, do I????? Looks like Mose to the right with the silo, too.....

I sit here in August with the apparent onset of winter here. Reminds me of UW-O Winter Carnival from 1979. Carol (hall director) told me that we had twice as many people as any other residence hall, so we should go for it. Don't think Scott Hall had done anything in the campus activities before that, but we gave it a good run. I remember there was a snow or ice sculpting contest, a trivia contest, and of course the broom ball tournament (amongst other activities). I know some of the guys on the broom ball team were Dan, Ricky, Tom, Russ, Shoobie, and even Wenz I think (have no idea why I didn't play---seems like something I would have done). My favorite part is when I told Carol we needed more/better brooms. After much discussion she agreed, saying we could always use them for cleanup after the tournament. Of course, she wasn't very happy after we got a case of new brooms to see us sawing off the bristles so they would be more suitable for broomball. Sadly, North Scott was only able to take second place for the winter carnival. All that survives of the magnificent trophy is the face plate......guess we shouldn't have kept it on that shelf.........

Okay people, only 50 days to will come and go, firm up the plans, invite the friends, get ready for a good time.........Now, anybody know who the folks in these pictures are?????????

Here's a picture of the guys from Thirsty's, JoeL and Dugan. I'm sure many of you ran across them when you had to go pick up supplies. I'll bet I spent 40 or 50 dollars there myself. Don't have any idea what the deal is with the Joan Jett--they probably don't either.

This is a picture of Thirsty's today, right there next to Hungri's. Alas, apparently out of business......

If you are planning to attend the reunion (or even think you might) drop us a quick line if you get a chance---got something brewing and am trying to get an accurate count. Thanks. email

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Got a couple of questions concerning photos. Frankly, I don't know how to send them(or receive them, for that matter), so here is how we are going to do this. Take your photos and make copies (copy machine, printer, etc). Take the COPIES send them to us. We will then post them on the blog--our standards may not be very high, but we do have them, so please use some discretion with the pics. Send them to "Chuck"
324 E. Wisconsin Ave--Suite 405
Milwaukee, Wi 53202

Also, a couple of 5th floor girls are planning on joining us for the reunion. Faye and Jamie, look forward to seeing you!!

Hey we're getting some support for our reunion from Miller Brewing Co. They support us, hope you support them!

A couple of girls don't recall being in Scott Hall pictures. Perhaps these shots from the 1980 Christmas party will help with the ol' memory. Happy Holidays!

By the way, who is that Santa?

Here we have some pictures of people who have said they are planning to attend the reunion. We've got Rebs, Russell, Mary, Chuck, Shoobie, Thad and Doug. Am hoping for some pictures to arrive from some other folks this coming week. Don't forget to contact everyone you know from the Oshkosh days and encourage them to join us in October....

Friday, August 21, 2009

Couple of pictures here of folks we have contacted who haven't gotten back to us yet. There is still plenty of time for people to join us in Oshkosh in October, so spread the word. Looking forward to seeing you all this fall!!

We are now basically 8 weeks from the reunion. THIS WILL GO VERY FAST!!!!!! Hope you are all finalizing your plans! Do not DIT it, do it today......

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Judging from the background and the drinking vessels in these pictures, it would appear to me that these are pictures of a progressive party. I'm sure you all remember these events. Three or four rooms would get together and mix up a concoction for the rest to share. Once it was gone, move on to the next room. I always thought it was so nice that we would start on the guys end of the dorm so that we could make sure everything was going okay.

Here we are, just a little less than 9 weeks until the reunion weekend. Just checked one of our counters and I find 158 unique visitors to the blog for the past week. Don't know who you all are, but I hope you all plan on attending the reunion.

Mary has gotten ahold of Fratello's, the brew pub on the Fox River a little north of campus. They are holing some tables for us, so if you are interested in dinner on Friday the 16th call 920-232-2337 for a resevation. Tell them your with Mary for the North Scott reunion. Hope to see a bunch of you there. Keep checking back in for more information and great pictures (speaking of pictures, we are always looking for more!!).

Well, we have a gem .....looks like a little toga party action. I'm guessing late '78 early '79 here. We've got Laurie Keller, Julie McCabe and Sherri Nettisheim in the front row, Mark Wenzel in the back row, and in the middle looks like we've got Mark Bell, Andrew Gingrasso, probably Jane Beno, and the other two girls I can't make out. Sorry ladies, but if its you (or you know who they are), let us know and we'll fill 'em in.

Mary says the girl on the right is Betsy Lamb and I believe her. One mystery girl left........

CLICK HERE to go to the tunes. Send an e-mail to e-mail if you have other songs that you wan to add to the list.

Well, here we have a few pictures from the Mary Wichmann files. Looks to be one our famous 12 pack hall parties....Let's see, Dan (nice beard) and Brett in some kind of business transaction, Mose firing up a little Animal House action, Chuck wearing Oscar's hat (Don't ask), Shoobie in the Farrah T-shirt (think it was vintage then already), and Harold wisely having a Miller Lite (good for career plans, eh?). I would imagine about 6:45 the next morning Stalin was cleaning up the cans......

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Well, we might just as well finish this off while we are at it.....this is 80/81, 54 people in the picture. I don't recall where these steps are (help!), and there are plenty of people here I don't recall. Perhaps Roy, Mel and Tom G. and help us out here. Let's start with....

We have 44 people in the picture, so I numbered them starting at the lower left. If you know someone (or if I screwed up) drop an email or hit the comment box. This shouldn't take too long, should it?

26 down, only 18 to go......


Alright, here we have 7th floor from '78/'79. We'll be trying to track down as many of these folks as we can, now that we have more names. I know there were a heck of a lot more people living on the floor back then....must have all been in class or at the library.

Got a couple of notes saying the pictures were too small to see. Click on the picture, people. Hope this helps.....

Okay, just got some pictures in from Mary, a virtual treasure trove. As much as I'd like to post all of the pictures now, I can't, because they are just too good. I'm going to start here with a picture from the way, WAY back machine, something taken a little earlier than when most of us lived in North Scott---though there are those we know. How bout the foresight of Mary to record everyone's name. Now I can't believe that 7th floor was the only floor to have floor pictures taken, so if they're out there (and I know they are!) drop me a line so we can get them on the blog. And play close attention here because there are many more photos to come....

Hey State Fair is in full swing, have had a wonderful time there over the years. Some of us are planning on meeting Friday the 14th, so if you're out on the grounds on Friday stop by Robert's on Grandstand Ave around 6 (maybe a little earlier?) and say hi. Hope to see ya'.

After deep thought (not so much) have been able to remember a couple of other profs. Davey Jones of the Poli Sci dept may have been my last instructor (watch the borders, if you were there you'll understand). And I believe one of my first professors was good ol' Rassmuesson (sp?) for Accounting I back in the fall of '78. Think I was 4-3. I know where 4-1 and 4-2 are, but have no clue as to whatever happened to 4-4. She seemed like a nice girl, probably thought we were nuts....

So I've been visiting colleges with my son, looking for a good fit. I'm sure many of you have done the same. One of their selling points always seems to be how easy it is to sit down and have a cup of coffee to discuss things with the professors. This gets me to thinking, they don't need coffee, they need MINGLE TINGLE!!! There was a place you could talk to some professors! As I personally think back though, I can only remember five or six profs. There was Watson Parker (favorite), Dr Okhs (scared me), Werner Brattz, the speech guy who reminded me of Bob Newhart, and of course Dr. Keen, all dressed up like Roy Orbison. I can't even think of another--I need to look this up. Any recollections of professors out there? Either post a comment or head over to the bulletin board and share some memories.....

Alright, here's one for the "this can't be true" column. Was looking at some stuff online about UW-O and found this site--- There really is no reason to go there, I only list it for proof in case anyone doubts what I say here. On this site it says that North Scott Hall 5th floor is designated as a quite floor. This baffles me. Was it always so designated? I know a few people who lived on this floor, they were not quiet! I remember some trolling---not quiet! Somebody please fill me in, I need to know!!!
