Class of '89
Hello everyone I hope you are all eagerly anticipating our up and coming reunion!!  It is hard to believe that 20 years have already gone by but time flies..... whether you are having fun or not I think!  In the hopes of keeping the costs as low as we can, we are going to do most if not all contact by email.   So please keep up with your email messages. You are getting three emails from me right now -- one with the info and two Paypal invoices.

The weekend of the reunion is Oct 16-17th, 2009.

The details are as follows: 

Friday the 16th: We will have a family tailgate party prior to the home football game at the new Enka High Stadium. (The stadium is located at the high school now for those who may not know.)  Each family can bring their own tailgate supplies. We plan to meet and park at the Hominy Valley Pool parking area at 6:00pm (located on Twin Lakes Drive near rear entrance to the school.)  From there we will go to the game and have a designated area for us all to sit together. 

Saturday the 17th: We will have a dinner / dance at the Land of the Sky Shrine Club. 

The address is:
39 Spring Cove Rd
Swannanoa, NC 28778-3615
(828) 299-1766

You can easily pull up a map and directions here by using google maps or mapquest if you do not already know where it is. 

The event will start at 6:00pm as well.   We have opted to go with heavy Hors O'deuvres instead of a formal sit down meal.  That way everyone can relax and eat and snack at their own pace.  There will also be a BYOB alcohol policy.  There will NOT be a cash bar.  We do ask that you please plan ahead and make safe transportation arrangements as well.  Designate a driver! 

The cost for the event will be $35.00 / per person if you pay before August 15th.  After August 31st the price will go up to $40.00 / per person.   At this time we have some financial obligations to meet so the earlier the payment we would appreciate it. 

We are really excited about our band.  We have scheduled our own and accomplished classmates Scott McCracken, Bobby Benson, and Jim DeVore.  They have been working hard to choreograph music in sets related to our days at EHS.  This will be a treat in and of itself!  They are calling their band "1989". 

This is also estimated to be peak weekend for leaf season.  So anyone who may be coming from out of town and needing a reservation may want to keep this in mind and reserve your stay ASAP.  I have blocked rooms at the Days Inn East and Holiday Inn for Saturday night.  These two hotels are within 1.5 - 2 miles from the Shriner's Club where the dinner / dance portion of the reunion will take place.  These blocks will be lifted by Sept 1 due to the high demand for this time of year.    The contact information for the hotels: 

Days Inn East, 1435 Tunnel Road,    ( 828)298-4000.  $125.99 + tax ( Sat 17th)  {20 rooms reserved}
Holiday Inn Hotels 1450 Tunnel Road, (828) 298-5611  $ 139.00 + tax (Sat 17th)  {10 rooms reserved}

Other hotels nearby ( we do not have a block on any rooms at these) : 

Super 8 (828) 298-7952,
Motel 6 (828)299-3040,  Quality Inn and Suites (828)298-5519. 

We are even set up with Paypal to invoice each of you for secure payment by email.
--- If you already have a paypal account set up, once you sing in it will automatically connect you with your existing account.

---If you do not, you have the option to set up an account but will not be obligated to do so in order to pay. 

Because of the uncertainty in knowing how many will be attending and the way the invoice process needs to work,  I will be sending 2 invoices to each email address that I have.  Each will be for $35.00.  The first invoice will be designated for classmembers and the 2nd for guest.  If you don't need the second invoice you can ignore it.  If you and your spouse were both graduates and we only have one email, the invoice will be one for classmate and one for guest (even though you are no t technically the "guest.) I hope that is not confusing. 

In addition to the band, we hope to have some games and specials treats that include prizes as well.  Any classmate that would like to donate to the prize fund financially or by donating a service or product please contact me and let me know.
