Well, here we have a picture of Lori and that kinda' looks like one of those illegal quarter barrels in the dorms. Now I've been told how some of the guys might have gotten a qb into the dorms, and I remember Lori being a tough cookie, but I gotta' believe she musta' had some help with this. Don't know whatever happened with Lori---remember she was always around in Oshkosh though. Anybody got any info?????

Like the Stroh's poster....classic....
This is an update on post football game "fifth quarter". This year it is at the Comfort Suites on Koeller St. This is the frontage road east of Hwy.41, south of Witzal, north of 9th. Looks like a nice place for accomadations if you are looking for lodging....

Okay gang, this is what you look for in Oshkosh---not the kids you salmons, the sign. You find it, you find us. This is no hidden treasure hunt---you've seen the itinerary, we'll be following it pretty closely. See you all soon!

I think these must be from Halloween--duh. Costumes are so good I don't even recognize the girls. Looks like Bruce is doing some judging in this picture. Wonder why lack of costume? Killer Bees? Didn't remember them being around that long ago--suppose so though....reminds me of Belussi.

All right we are now a mere 20 days away from the reunion. There are quite a few folks who read this blog (there are counters), so if your coming to the reunion please make sure you have your ducks in a row---hotel reservations if your staying, dinner reservations if your dining, etc. If your not going to be able to make it, sorry about that, you are going to miss one heck of a good time. We'll probably just talk about you. If you are undecided, hope you'll decide to come. If you heard directly from us, somebody who will be at the reunion wanted you found--if you were just directed here, hope you'll join us for a beer and some memories. If you have any pictures you might want to share, follow the information at the left. As always, please pass the information on to anyone we may have missed--or anyone you want to see at the reunion. Looking forward to seeing everyone in 20 days!

Still more pictures from the 5th floor---these appear to be from the Regatta, must be spring of '79. Pictures are a little bit faded, but that tends to happen over the years I guess. The caption for the first picture says Kim Marge and Nancy--don't know the deal with the tickets saying 1973 though. In the second picture I can make out Mose, Shoobie, and Russ among others. Please take note that North Scott was well ahead of the times by having an alternative beverage on hand for those who may have preferred a non-alcoholic beverage. Third picture here is of Jamie and a couple of friends--I wonder why the police "cruiser" is there......

On another note--had a wonderful time at Mel's Pig Roast yesterday. Would encourage everyone to make plans to attend this event next year hosted by Tom Stanton --Mel. Cold beer, great food, nice weather, nice people, and a great cause. What more could you ask for?

Lisa, hope to see you in a couple of weeks in Oshkosh.....

Picture here of some of the girls playing some sort of parlor game. They look pretty serious about it, must be some pretty high stakes. Starting to notice a pattern in these 5th floor pictures as well....

Off to Mel's Pig Roast today, hope to see some of you there!!

Not certain who this guy is, but he sure looks pleased with himself. Looks like some kind of afternoon picnic type action here. Probably a Wednesday. Not certain who everyone in the pictures are, so I will remain silent on that instead of making a fool of myself.

On another subject, I am hearing through the vine that people think they are too old, gray etc.---people, let it slide!!!! Just looking to get together to celebrate the ol' days....have a little fun, share a few memories, tell a few lies.....

Have some more 5th floor pictures here--These pictures from Vicki really brought back lots of memories. As I go through the pictures many of the faces are familiar, but it is sometimes hard to put a name with them. Don't be shy about adding any info you'd like. Also remember to get those pictures in to the address to the left, and we'll get them up here on the blog. Nice shot Amy.......

Don't forget Mel's Pig Roast in Cedarburg on Sunday. If you are going for fish dinner in Oshkosh on the 16th at Fratello's tell them you are with North Scott when you reservate. Molly Hatchete at the Wisconsin State Fair Park Sat at 9. Free show. Drive your motorcycle. TTFN.

Now this is what I'm talkin' about. Got a mother lode of pictures today of the 5th floor (which I have learned was not a quiet floor in our era). Vicki sent these in, and I'll get them on the blog asap. Looks like Faye, Michelle, Vicki and Lori here---next up looks like a couple of the boys doing a little burrowin' in. Next up looks like a bunch of the girls having a little hall party, and finally the '78-'79 floor picture. They must have had more discretionary funds to get the picture in color. Hope you can find yourself. Don't know if Vicki is planning to attend the reunion, but I hope so--need to thank her for the pictures. Keep the eyes peeled--plenty more to come!
We are now a mere three weeks away from Homecoming Weekend. Time to confirm reservations if you are dining or staying the night in Oshkosh. Also get a hold of any of the folks who still haven't decided if they will join us or not. As Kevin commented on one of the posts ( I paraphrase), its taken thirty years to get this together, you don't want to miss it.

Don't know how this happened, but.....just got an email from Spid Pieper. Spid was the singer at Scott Hall Regatta, must have been spring of '79. Remember it was a wonderful afternoon of beer and music, water sking and a trip to New Holstein. Great memories. Also saw Spid one weekend in the New Cow area, remember doing the gator in the middle of the state highway. Don't know if Spid is still out and about, but I'll let you know.....

Got a shot here...don't know the background on this one, but I can imagine---looks like typical good time on the seventh floor. Know that Mare and Mose will be at the reunion, hoping Laurie and Cindy make it as well...

Got to thinking about some of the inventions and innovations of the last thirty years or so. Obviously the PC has to be one if not the biggest change we've had. First PC in '81 (remember MS DOS?), the Web in '90. Then you've got the cell phone--not as big as big as a shoebox anymore. You have the IPod---amazes me, you're video gaming systems (quite different than PONG, which was pretty cool way back then). You've got cd's(already on the way out?), replacing the album--no more stacking the wax. Then of course there's all the medical stuff---and cloning! Interesting times we've been in---so what have I forgot?????

We are now a mere 4 weeks away from the reunion, and I hope everyone has their plans in place. i've had a few people tell me they have something has come up, or maybe they'll be at the next one. To them I say many things only happen once, so.....Hope to see you all in a month!

I've completed sending out informational invites to the reunion this past week. I think I've sent the info to everyone I've ever heard of on the list I have of the folks who lived in North Scott in the late 70's early 80's. There are a few I've been unable to locate, so feel free to help! Take a couple of minutes to print out the letter from the April 2 blog, and drop it in the mail to anyone you can remember from Oshkosh. We're only 30 days out now, looking for a megaload of people on the 16-17th weekend. Hoping to see you all there!!!

Top 100 Songs of 1979

Ok, here is another music playlist to get you in the mood for the reunion.  This is the Top 100 Songs of 1979.  Once again some rockin' gems, some disco hits, some sappy and some crappy.  Hearing the songs definitely gives you some flashbacks to where you were and what you were doin'.  Have fun listening!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Going through a few pictures.....anyone else remember Phil feeding the piranahs, or being the electrician when things got a little bit out of hand, or how about when he called the Vatican to talk to the Pope? Ah, great memories....

Monday, September 14, 2009

Another interesting picture from the Wichmann files.....must be those liberal college kids. Only 34 short days until the reunion, hope all your plans are going well. Be sure to check here as we get closer to October 16 for updated information.......

Received an email week or 10 days ago from Ray Cyrus. He spent 4 years as a resident in North Scott (record?). The thing that got me about this was that he was on 9th floor, which was the International floor. I had completely forgotten about this. I think Marcus and Scaboo lived up there, but I don't recall ever heading up or really having much contact with those residents. Another missed opportunity. Don't know if it is still an International Floor or not. Unfortunately, Ray will not be able to join us for the reunion.

Need to know by Sept. 2o if people are interested in a North Scott tour. If there is interest we have to set it up with the Alumni Association. Let us know at

Don't forget about Mel's Pig Roast in Cedarburg on the 27th.

New feature there on the left. if you have any good questions let us know and we'll get them up....

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Here is a picture of the North Scott power structure, circa 1979 or so. I recognize Deb and Deb, the Bads, tall girl on the left, but don't know her name. What is the deal with the Quaker Oats? Thought that didn't happen until you moved off campus....

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Hope you all have a safe an relaxing Labor Day weekend with friends and family. Remember, only six weeks until North Scott Hall reunion....

Friday, September 4, 2009

Today's quick quiz.....Who are these camera shy North Scott residents? As always, some nominal prize will be awarded.

How anyone remembered the first 4 VJs I'll never know, but somehow Mary knew them all. Good for you(?), Mare......

Thursday, September 3, 2009

Difficult to believe it is only seven weeks until the reunion.....plan on wrapping up my search for people soon (depending on my clerical help), so if there is anyone you may want us to try and find, let us know soon. Need to take a moment here to address some concerns people seem to have about the reunion and why they may not be able to attend......your fish will be fine, you don't really need to change the oil, the cat does not need a bath, the boat can be winterized now!!!! I will guarantee every one of you except one that you will not be the oldest, youngest, tallest, shortest, heaviest, lightest, most successful, least successful, grayest, baldest, etc. etc. I don't think anybody really cares. Time to stop making excuses and start making plans to be in Oshkosh in October! Hope to see you there....

More Music - 1978

So we got a request to add more music lists by categories - such as by year, by type (disco, country, etc.) and so on. So here is the first list - more to come. This is the top 100 songs of 1978. Everything from disco, to sappy, to Grease.....quite the mix. Check it out.

Sittin' around listing to some tunes from 1978-1983, what I have taken to calling the "Scott Hall Era", and for some reason I got to thinking about MTV, not the bogus trash of today, but the original 1981 MTV. Got to thinking about the VJs. Okay, who were they. First correct answer should merit some sort of prize. No cheating--that means don't go looking it up. Anyone have a good memory?
