Reunion 2006...San Antonio, Texas
Mark your calendars now and plan to attend our 2006 Hadite Reunion in San Antonio the weekend of July 20-23, 2006! Bill Gunkel of Reunions Unlimited is in the "saddle" once again and ready to "rope" in you Hadites for a low-down hoe-down along the fabulous River Walk of San Antonio.

El Tropicano River Walk Hotel, located at the start of the famed River Walk, will be the host venue for our reunion weekend. The property is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation but management advises us that the renovations will be complete before the reunion. Local boy Steve Garcia is going to give us regular progress reports. We have secured a block of rooms at the group rate of $99.00 per night plus tax/gratuity for single, double, triple, or quad occupancy. You can't beat that rate partners! You can visit the hotel website at The toll-free number for reservations is (800) 288-3927. Make sure you mention the name an dates of the reunion so you get the group rate.

This year's reunion will follow our traditional format with a Welcome Reception Friday night, Dinner Dance on Saturday night, and a Farewell Brunch on Sunday morning. We are also looking into the possibility of one or two small group tour options on Friday or Saturday for those of you that want to make it a mini-vacation. Bill plans to have registration materials in the mail to everyone around February 15th so keep watching your mail. We plan to post the agenda and registration forms on Reunions Unlimited's website, as well as any available website for Hadites.

Where's the beef? Prices for the event will be included with the registration materials; you may register for individual activities or the whole weekend, which of course affords the best deal. We still have a few last minute details to hammer out so we appreciate your patience over the next few weeks as we work with Bill to "bring in the herd." Please be assured that we want to get all the details out to you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, help us out and spread the word to fellow classmates. Keep checking Reunions Unlimited's website for updates...

On behalf of the whole reunion committee, best wishes for 2006! We hope to see you all in July.

P.S. Sorry for the corny cowboy analogies. I've always had a thing for cowboys, except for when they mix it up with Steelers of course!

*Several Hadites have reported that when they tried to book a room through the El Tropicano website they received a message saying that no rooms were available. Lyn Pool '75 contacted Bill Gunkel of Reunions Unlimited, he checked it out and says the website is apparently not working properly, rooms are available but you have to use the toll free number to make your reservations (800-288-3927). If you have a problem with the 800 number, call (210) 277- 4141, which is the hotel itself.
