Event 2: Class Of 68 Reunion
Venue: Bali Hai
Date: September 15th, 2018 6:00pm - 10:00pm
RSVP By: August 30th, 2018

Things are starting to come together:
We have secured the Bali Hai Restaurant Hawaiian Village, the same spot that we had for the 40th reunion! If you missed that event you missed a great time.
The early count of people attending is 83, well on our way to the 125-150 fellow Foothillers that we hope for. The more the merrier.

To recap the date is September 15, 2018 from 6-10 PM. There may be other activities the days before which may include a golf tournament and a happy hour to get in the mood for the next evening.
The cost will be $150.00 per person which includes 2 call brand drink tickets.
There will be food and entertainment as well as the chance to catch up with classmates, some of whom you haven’t seen in many years.

If you send your check in before 1-31-2018 the price will be reduced to $125 per person. That way Fabienne and I do not need to come out of pocket too much to cover the advance costs of the reunion. We are committed to making this a great event for all.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served throughout the night. Your first two drinks are free, with drinks of all kinds available for purchase after those are gone! Take advantage of the photo booth to snap some shots to commemorate the night and head out to the dance floor where you can rock to the beats of DJ Shammy!

Reuinions are a great way to reconnect, and something many people end up regretting not going to, so put on your best dressy casual outfit, grab your favorite guest, and head on down for a night filled with fun, laughter, and memories—old and new!

Class of 1979
Title: Class of 1979 - 35th Year Reunion!
Venue: Kona Kai
Date: August 2nd, 2014 6:30pm
(ending August 2nd, 2014)
Details: A 35th year meet-up has been planned for us to casually get together. Down payments and reservations are NOT required. There are not any contracts with hotels and we have not booked picnic space reservations.....just show up! Yup! If you ask the staff about GHS....they will know zippo!

So that means it is cheaper and on you to navigate the instructions here and in the future to get your shenanigans on!

Saturday-August 2nd
Kona Kai Vessel lounge/Beach area 6:30-till face plant! Listen to live music and relax under the stars at this newly renovated gem. Gather your friends in advance for a pre-dinner (Make your OWN reservations/Plans for dinner) or come anytime and just seek out the laughter! We will keep you posted as we get closer to the event of a specific location and time where we can all be found. There are bars for food and appetizers located at the venue.

Humphrey's Famous Sunday Brunch.($44++) Make your own reservations requesting the lounge area if you can get it. (Please, NO mention of a GHS group) beginning at 11:45 through 1pm preferably. It's their Back Stage Lounge with public seating so this is not a private event. Afterwards we'll either walk across the street to the grassy area or head back to the Kona Kai and convene on their terrace (To Be Determined).
And for you retro party animals:
Tom Petty and Steve Winwood are playing together out at SDSU Viejas Arena at 7!!!

Fine Print:
-Watch for Face Book updates
- Do not bring coolers of beer and tons of food on Saturday night. Be discrete and keep them in your room or car. A big bonfire of cut-loose 50+ year olds reliving Cheap Trick and Tom Petty may cause the paddy wagon to come reclaim the restricted and alcohol free beaches!
-No monies required in advance. Guests will pay individually for all events
-No group reservations made in advance for either of the above mentioned gatherings
-Preferably adults only
-There are dozens of Hotels/Motels located along Rosecrans St, Shelter/Harbor Island to accommodate every budget. Otherwise, please connect with Uber and get yourself home safely :-) (I am a former ER nurse, so I am seen my fair share of bad s__t).
-No reason to call or ask questions as this is all the info we know!! But I will keep you posted on this site.
- Please share this with others. I am not sending out mass emails or invitations. I will post something on the GHS alumni site, but that is it. Keeping it manageable this go-around.
- BTW....I hope you all will come...we had an amazing class... so many cool people! I will figure out some fun way to get us all to identify ourselves in a crowd, so stay tuned. (I may may be wearing New Orleans Blue and gold beads!)
Simply come and enjoy/...
