How about an update on NU’s first late Spring Alumni Weekend. One of your classmates stopped by to see me in Cooperstown and he shared a little with me but what was your first hand take and did you hear anything you can share?

I did not attend the reunion, but the class of 75 only had 14 attend. The Columbus Day weekend seems to be a more desirable time .

Alumni Weekend went well:
- Campus looked great
- Niagara admissions are hitting their mark
- New finished floor in Gallagher
- Hockey rink looked good. Lammers said he biggest challenge is the cost of recruiting. Playing a very good OOC schedule to include ND, Penn St, et al.
- Paulus upbeat on the program
- Pierce upbeat as well
- Exploring expansion of the Golisano Center for Integrated Sciences and a new dorm.

It’s the annual Ray Kist Memorial Golf Tournament. Ray was the sports trainer in the eighties who contacted ALS. I had planned to attend but had to cancel over the weekend. Eagle, BTW three of your classmates stopped by Cooperstown today. thanks for your promo. I think having it the day after Alumni Weekend is a great tie in which should increase participation.

I knew Ray well and have played in the Tourney in the past.

Rather than make it the day following Alumni Weekend might be wise to make it part of Alumni Weekend.

If I had know, I would have gone.

I think most golf tournaments at private clubs take place on Mondays when the course is available. I would think most of the older alums are retired and could and would stay another day if they were golf enthusiasts. I’m a food enthusiast so I usually just go for the brunch and dinner.
