From there we will head to Charlotte High for the Homecoming football game. While at the game we will gather in a designated area around the new Wallace Keller Field House. After the game we will hit the town- maybe even a Punta Gorda pub crawl! Saturday morning we will meet at Charlotte High at 10:00 am for a guided tour of the new, spectacular campus. Coach George Sansone we lead us on the tour. Details still coming about Saturday afternoon as we are planning a family gathering. We also have a trolley option Saturday night from the Wyvern to Portofino's and back to Punta Gorda to avoid drinking and driving, but this is an added cost and we will only do this if are numbers increase. Finally, Paul and I are working out the payment plans. We are thinking of charging $50 per person to offset any additional costs we incur. So please plan on joining us for a weekend of fun!!!
