Update on the 2013 Vegas Bash:

Our KHS Reunion reps continue to meet with Roosevelt and McKinley 69 classmates to finalize plans for our 2013 Las Vegas Bash.  We could say that we are celebrating our 62nd birthdays or our 44th class reunion, but following our 2011 trip, it would be safe to assume that we are heading up to LV just to have fun.  At our last meeting we found that Kaimuki Class of 69 has also joined the planning group.  Looks like it might be another four-school event.
If you are interested, the tentative dates are:  Leaving November 13 and returning on November 18th.

In 2011 the group participated and enjoyed activities that started from the plane ride and lasted till the last night we were there.  It was a very busy schedule but everyone enjoyed.  For next year, the committee has agreed to keep the concept of joint events but will tweak them a bit.  
Here is a list of what happened in 2011:
      "Ice Breaker" Breakfast 
      Slot Tournament
     "Getting Acquainted" banquet
     Hospitality Suites (every night)
     "Fun" Bowling Tournament
     "Hawaii Six-0" Scavenger Hunt
     Shopping Spree
     Go cart racing
     Two Vegas Shows
Again, if you are interested contact the KHS Reunion committee and watch for more.

A joint effort is always great to see.  Imagine ... seeing Bulldogs and Tigers running next to the thunderous mass of Rough Riders, as the Falcons soar majestically high above ... away from all that dust.

 Some pics from 2011's 60th birthday bash with McKinley and Roosevelt

Something to ponder

Yes, in 2013 we will all be reaching our 62nd year.  For most of us, maturity has replaced the brashness of our youth and we treasure each year that passes.  By 2016 we will be 69.  Now that's a birthday that we should consider doing some seriously celebrating!

Along with some of our '69 classmates from Roosevelt and McKinley, a handful of us Falcons enjoyed a unique 60th birthday celebration in Las Vegas.  Through specially planned group activities and a willingness to mix, we all enjoyed ourselves and made some great new friends. 

Reunion representatives from all three schools have continued meeting since the trip and are planning one for 2013, our 62nd birthday bash.  The group is looking a Vegas again, so check out the tentative dates and ponder on it ...

     November 13 through 18, 2013
     Kalani, McKinley, and Roosevelt HS Class of '69

More details to follow.  Okay, start pondering.
