Las Vegas Reunion Was A "Knock-Out"!
by Bing Macavinta
May 7, 2009
- Just as Pacquiao knocked out Hatton on the same day, in the same town; similarly USTHS class of ’68 First USA Reunion was, by all accounts, a “knock-out!” Friday’s get-together was awesome too. Everyone bonded, no groupies, no clicks – simply batch mates and their spouses/partners wanting the same thing: the pleasure of each other’s company. Saturday, the highlight of the weekend- Everyone stayed until closing time. We all danced & drank the night away. The time, money and labor of love were well worth it. Without a doubt, 2009 First USA Reunion has gone down as a HUGE success! The next one will be in 2012, to be hosted by the Northeast group, possibly in New York City. So stay tuned and we hope to see many of you then!
Batch mates from all time zones headed to the city lights of Las Vegas as early as Thursday and the last bunch left Tuesday. Little gatherings continued before and after the Friday and Saturday happenings. Golfers had their days as well. Sunday brunch & dinner followed for those able to make it. The memory of the weekend left a big smile on everyone’s face and that in itself is telling.
Because of the many cameras capturing the many happy moments, those that wish to share theirs, uploaded them individually at the USTHS68 Webshots. This is the easiest way of making it available for immediate viewing. There were official photographer and videographers for the Saturday Grand event. They will be available at a later date.
