Reasons for this Unofficial Reunion:

This "Unofficial Reunion" was announced early in the summer that it would take place this Fall. Several people have questioned the timing and reason considering there is an "Official Reunion" in the planning stage. There is no political reasoning behind this event. Several people here in Texas have indicated they wanted to get together during the cooler season and camp out just for the fun of it. This is a casual, come-as-you-are event. Just throw your stuff in a car, truck, vehicle and come.

We understand people want to come for this event and some inevetibly will feel left out. If you aren't able to come because of the late notice, then mark it next year on your calender, you now have 13 months advanced notice. The next unofficial reunion will occur around the same part of November as this one approaching, the first or second weekend in November. October is still hot here in Texas and with the holidays approaching, there is little choice of weekends, unless we would like to have it in hot weather. We are just expecting a handful of people at this time but it is unfair for those anticipating this event through the summer to cancel for those unable to attend. We have a couple of people outside of Texas coming. We really do not know what to expect of this but should prove to be a blast.

We have had more energy in this alumni project than has been involved with the corps in several years. This event is important to keep the energy flowing. We cannot stagnate less the fire die down. If we have one Official and one Unofficial reunion each year everyone will eventually be able to participate quickly with each reunion building upon the last.

I personally would like to see a yearly Fall event, camping out and just enjoying some cooler weather for a change, casual event, little structure, good music, good food and good drinks. Each year we can build on the last year's success and it should become more fun and attract more people.
