Here's what others have said:

13 November 2012: May I add my congratulations and thanks to the organizing committee for everything leading up to the wknd. Several timely emails helped to keep the event on the horizon and to focus one's attention on accn, etc. Although I only attended the Fri ni event, I thought the venue was adequate for our numbers and provided a great view. Food was great and sitting down probably meant everyone had some food to go along with their booze. I can't comment on cruise, but would suggest that other than Fri ni, variety could be part of what keeps everyone coming back. I think some classes have used Fort Henry. We should soon decide on a class gift. I can't say there is a precedent but, if we are going to give one, I don't believe we should leave organizing or paying for it until our 50th. It was great to see everyone; looking forward to the next time. Thanks again. -- Brian Clements

7 November 2012: Thanks again to all involved in the organization of what was a great weekend. What follows is not a criticism of what was done this year - it is offered solely as a consideration for the next reunion. Lead-in organization was well done. I found it was timely and very informative - giving me everything that I needed to participate. Thanks! Friday night was excellent - I can't think of a single suggestion to improve it. The dinner cruise Saturday night was a creative idea, and an enjoyable activity. Unfortunately, the cruise includes entertainment, in addition to the tourist narrative. While it was entertaining, it made talking with table-mates very difficult while it was underway and effectively "shortened" that part of my reunion experience. Suggestions? All I can think of at the moment is that a Saturday event without entertainment might offer more opportunities for continuing the reunion experience. Then again, if the cruise was popular, repeat. We'll know what to expect and can cram more into Friday night.... Back to my original comment - it was a great weekend, and thanks to all involved for the organization! -- Mike Hache

25 October 2012: Cheryllynn and I had a great time and want to thank Tim, Doug, Stan and Dave for their efforts. The only way complaint is that time passes too quickly at each event -- Glenn Nordick

21 October 2012: Overall, it was great. Dinner on Fri was very noisy, so hard to converse, but it's probably hard to find a better venue with the convenience of being downtown. The boat cruise was also good, but due to the sit-down venue, it was hard to meet everybody. A stand-up and mingle event with finger food might be better. There was a lot of free time so it would be worthwhile to suggest venues for breakfast or lunch so that people could get together informally. -- Terry Curley

18 October 2012: I (and May) enjoyed the events. It was well organized and low key, which May and I appreciated. I guess with my aging ears my only complaint was the noise, especially on the boat. Not sure how Doug survived it, but the food and entertainment were good. I would have liked to see a more detailed breakdown of the funding and the intentions. Stan skipped through this too quickly but I appreciate not getting the welcoming dinner bogged down in debate. My congrats to all. See you in future. -- Bill Corcoran

15 October 2012: (feedback here) I offer my feedback somewhat belatedly: the weekend was outstanding. I truly cannot think of anything that needed improvement. Neil -- Neil Clegg

15 October 2012: This was my first reunion and while it would be foolish to say that it was the best, I must admit that it was very well organised and run. Bravo Zulu to Tim, Stan, Doug and Dave. -- 11529 Michael McFadden

14 October 2012: First and foremost I must extend my many thanks thanks to Stanko, Dave, TC and Shag for their excellent work in organizing the 35th reunion. Great job guys! What went well: The Friday Night meet and greet + meal was an excellent start to the weekend. Areas from improvement: Look into reservering a pub room , say at the Kingston Brewing Company. Suggestion is that we convince Ray to bring his guitar and we can have our own space for music and conversation (without the interference from the pub band/sound system. Second area for improvement is to get Sprout to actually March with us to the Arch. -- Fernando

13 October 2012: Just a quick note on the event from an "early grad" perspective. The way you shaped the invite was quite tactful, inclusive and made me feel as welcome as an actual grad. I think that was a big plus and I hope that some of those in my category actually did attend. Unfortunately I was unable to participate but, thanks to you, I actually considered attending for the first time. I hope that it was a success and look forward to seeing you all again some day.

13 October 2012: The only thing that I'd say could be done better would be convincing the hotel to sort out their payment system so that they wouldn't expect to retain your credit card behind the bar for the evening! (You've gotta be kidding!) [[[feedback received by email]]] -- Tim Green

10 October 2012: The whole weekend was great! I have to say I enjoyed it better than all the previous ones I have attended. That was partly because I took in just about everything right from the obstacle course through to the march to the Arch, but more importantly it was because of how well the class events were organized and setup to accommodate re-connecting with everyone. There was a nice change of pace from Friday to Saturday night and it was so convenient to be able to walk to everything. One suggest for next year: it would be nice to have a schedule of college events available so everyone could check time and locations for things like the march to the Arch (probably just a print-out from the RMC website). Thanks to the committee for a great job. -- Brian and Judy -- Brian Neal

10 October 2012: I am reminded of a story about class reunions. WHY PEOPLE HATE CLASS REUNIONS Cathy, Sue and Jane haven't seen each other since High School. They rediscover each other via a reunion website and arrange to meet for lunch in a wine bar. Cathy arrives first, wearing a beige Versace. She orders a bottle of Pinot Grigio. Sue arrives shortly afterward, in gray Chanel. After the required ritualized kisses she joins Cathy in a glass of wine. Then Jane walks in, wearing a faded old tee-shirt, blue jeans and boots. She too shares the wine. Cathy explains that after leaving high school and graduating from Princeton in Classics, she met and married Bill, with whom she has a beautiful daughter. Bill is a partner in one of New York 's leading law firms. They live in a 4000 sq. ft. co-op on Fifth Avenue , where Susanna, the daughter, attends drama school. They have a second home in Phoenix. Sue relates that she graduated from Harvard Med School and became a surgeon. Her husband, Clint, is a leading Wall Street investment banker. They live in Southampton on Long Island and have a second home in Naples , Florida. Jane explains that she left school at 17 and ran off with her boyfriend, Ted. They run a tropical bird park in Memphis and grow their own vegetables. Ted can stand five parrots, side by side, on his penis. Halfway down the third bottle of wine and several hours later, Cathy blurts out that her husband is really a cashier at Wal-Mart. They live in a small apartment in Brooklyn and have a travel trailer parked at a nearby storage facility. Sue, chastened and encouraged by her old friend's honesty, explains that she and Clint are both nurses' aides in a retirement home. They live in Jersey City and take vacation camping trips to Alabama . Jane admits that the fifth parrot has to stand on one leg. -- Shag

9 October 2012: Gents, I just want to congratulate T.C., Shag, Dave and Stan for doing an outstanding job organizing the reunion and coordinating all of the activities. Although I was only able to attend the Meet n Greet, I felt that it was the best one that I've attended to date. The food was great, the venue was quite nice and the company was superb. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends who had come in from all over the world! Bob & Vivian Testa -- Bob Testa

8 October 2012: Thoroughly enjoyed the entire weekend. Right from checking out the obstacle course, the Friday night Meet & Greet (food was excellent, drinks a little pricey) to Saturday evenings dinner cruise (amazingly well served dinner and affordable drinks) and taking over the outside bar for more visiting. Great opportunity to catch up with old friends and to make new friends. Looking forward to our 40th! Special thanks to those that make this a priority! Thanks also to those investing time and energy to organize! We'll be back! Wayne & Maxine Russell -- Wayne Russell

8 October 2012: Thanks to all those involved in the organisation (Tim Green, Dave Hall, others) It was good to see all, some for the first time in 35 years. - Pierre & Catherine -- Pierre Rivard

3 October 2012: Great Weekend and very good to see everyone. Two organized events were a great fun. Thanks to organizers - Ship Shape work. Ray and Anne -- Ray Richardson

29 September 2012: We look forward to receiving your feedback. Thanks! -- Tim Green
