It occurred to us that we have never had an official Minnesota reunion. When we looked at the alumni list we discovered the following alumni residing in the Gopher state:

Tony Edmonds (1979-1980)
Jim Feinstein (1979-1984)
Errol Grisard (1972)
Pete Jocketty
Wes Jung
Dave Kirkeby (1971)
Bonnie Kranzusch-Dahlke
Mike Lurie (1970-1981)
Sandy Mahr-Matzke
Rick Prizant
Jeff Rissman (1975-1981)
John Rosenberg (1963-1967)
Ricky Shamberg (1978-1980)
Steve Stoltz (1979-1983)
Jeff Upin
Paul Warshauer (1966-1988, give or take)
Cathy Weasner-Babler (1983-1985)

A letter was sent, and an email has gone out, and now we are counting down to the event! Here are the details:

When: Saturday November 11, 2017
Time: 1:11 PM
Where: Pub 42 in New Hopw (click the blue link for venue website)

So listen up you Chicago (and Wisconsin) people: you can join us if you want! Take a train (Amtrak Empire Builder), plane (Spirit, just $80 round trip), or automobile (about a 6-7 hour drive) and crash the party! Did you know there is no tax on clothing purchases in Minnesota? You can save a bundle on sales taxes by shopping here! Or do you live in Wisconsin? Even shorter commute times for you folks, so come on up! Ya, you betcha!

Thinking of visiting camp any time soon? Remember: Please do NOT go onto Camp Young Judaea (our old Camp Waupaca) property. We will have another on site reunion when the younger former campers get off their butts and organize one!

Board of Directors News

On Saturday August 13, at the horseshoe around a campfire, your Board of Directors met to conduct the annual meeting of the Camp Waupaca Reunion Group. Of note: 1) The Board agreed to add a business network page to our most power equipped website. Send us a business card and we will add it to this new page. 2) The Board unanimously agreed to name Dick Garb as an honorary board member. Dick is very active behind the scenes of our group, putting us in contact with many alumni not already on our list, or alerting us to a passing. Along with his complete support for our efforts, we felt it was finally time to name Dick to our board in an honorary position. Congratulations, Dick Garb, and thank you for your endless contributions to our cause! 3) Discussions about future reunions were held. It was suggested that a handful of financially able alumni underwrite the next reunion, and we invite members to attend for free and just contribute what they felt the weekend was worth. This will require further board consideration.

Coming Soon . . .

Watch for some reunion pictures, the official time capsule, an updated Board of Directors page, reunion hats, t-shirts, and sweatshirts for sale, and the new business networking page!

Forever and forever, Waupaca!
