- The reunion is still on and the agreement in place with the hotel for the previously announced rates
- Regrettably we are going to have to curtail some of our plans for the reunion. We only have 33 people who paid for the festivities, instead of the 100+ we usually have.
The Hyatt is good. The Alamo is not. They could not cut their offer to make it worthwhile. We can tour individually on Saturday or Sunday. The caterer had to be fired too, so I have made arrangements with Shilos Deli for dinner at 6:00 pm on Saturday. We will order off the menu. http://schilos.com/
I have not heard back from das Biergarten guy, so I am presuming all is well there for Friday night.
Money. I would like to send your $65/ea back to you and you can order and pay for what you want at Shilo's and your entrance into the Alamo.
Please let me know your street address so I can get the checks in the mail asap....Jeff Gammon, email firstname.lastname@example.org
