Saturday night we’ll meet at The Flame in the upstairs party room starting at 7:00 for appetizers and drinks. We plan to get some kegs and food from The Flame and will be counting Facebook RSVPs to get a rough headcount.  There will be a small cover charge to cover the costs of the Saturday night event and any miscellaneous expenses. 

For anyone who is interested, there will be an informal golf group 9 am at Rolling Hills Golf Course on Saturday morning. Please respond on Facebook if you’re interested in attending--there is a separate survey for this event.  It will be a shotgun start, and we need to send in a rough headcount by July 20. 

If the weather cooperates, please join us Saturday afternoon at the Aberdeen Aquatic Center for an informal family-friendly day of swimming.  

Action Items: 
We are looking for some small PA/stereo equipment for both nights to play music in lieu of renting a DJ.

November 1-2 Class of 1974
2019 is the 45th anniversary of our graduation, and rather than do a big event in the summer, many of us have elected to pick some dates to gather, hunt, renew old acquaintances and get updated on the present.  We are planning a casual, relaxing time to be held November 1st and 2nd, Friday and Saturday.  During the day, anyone who would like to join us for the pheasant hunts are welcome.  Both days will be a paid hunt in order to ensure that those coming from a greater distance have birds to shoot.  Both evenings will include a casual get together at the Dakota Event Center (DEC), for the hunters, and the rest who choose not to hunt during the day.  The cost for the two nights is approximately $75.00 per person.  Rooms are available at the Holiday Inn Express (605-725-4000) or the Hampton Inn (605-262-2600) for $125.00 per night if you reference our gathering, and both are attached to the DEC.   Other rooms are available at other locations throughout the city.

We are very much looking forward to hearing from all classmates interested in attending this wonderful time for fun, food and fellowship.   Included is contact information for some of your classmates should you have questions, or better yet, want to include your name on the list.  If you plan to attend, please notify one of the individuals below with your commitment to participate.  Spouses are certainly welcome, and if there are siblings who want to hunt bring them along.

This has truly been an outstanding time for the last 14 years, and I encourage your consideration to attend.  If there are classmates you still have communication with, please let them know.  Hope to see you all on November 1st and 2nd.
