The Reunion Project – An Eerie Silence (3/13)

By Scott Ryan

Talk about a lull in activity. With early bird tickets sales over and the flurry of calls to find people mostly done–we wait. I guess we’ll release another block of tickets in a couple of weeks.

I’ve been hearing from a lot of people that they haven’t planned that far in advance, but these last 3+ months will go quickly. I’m hoping that the 130+ people who’ve either bought tickets or who’ve said they’ll be there go ahead and make plans. That will take a lot of pressure of those of us who are putting this together.

Sponsors and fundraisers are needed, too. A handful of classmates have agreed to contribute. Once their donations/sponsorships are received we can start getting the word out about them ahead of the reunion.

I did claim a small victory this week, getting in touch with a pair of classmates–or at least their relatives. I’ve scaled back my initial goal of finding every single one. The effort required is probably better spent on getting the ones we know about to show up.
