There was a pre-re-union event on Friday that included other classes but I didn’t go. Coincidentally my dad flew in from Arizona to visit friends up here so I had dinner with my dad and company.
Saturday, went to my 35th Annual Moline Senior High School Re-Union in Moline, Illinois. Dawn Schwartz arranged for a pre-re-union get-together for the MHS band members, so about a dozen of us showed up for that. Dawn volunteered to picked me up at my hotel and chauffeured me to the pre-event event. The first batch of pictures are from that event.
After that was done, some of us dropped out, but most of us went to the official re-union at Stoney Creek Inn in Moline. About 200ish showed up. I knew about a fifteen people or so. HUng around and talked to a bunch and took half-a-ton of pictures. Hope I got almost everyone at least once. If not, sorry…

Ok, finally a con with a ton of pictures. My second time at AnachroCon, a Steampunk convention. The first time I was there they already outgrew that hotel. I hate to say it but they were bursting at the seams at this hotel. The con suite was removed from the activities, but was on the same floors as the party rooms that wasn’t too bad. The party rooms were great, in fact. I think this is the first Steam event I went to where there were half a dozen party rooms per night, so that was awesome! However, the dealers room was incredibly way too small. I’d say one of the features of a great Steampunk con is a great Steampunk dealers room – because people always want to upgrade what they have or start buying bits and pieces for the next costume. (A BIG dealers room is essential.) Nonetheless, it was great! And I seem to meet more people at Steam-cons than at any other con. Met “Biscuit” and her hubbby “Limey” (he’s from the UK, yes, he used it on himself so it’s not being rude or anything) this time. And a bunch more people. I do highly recommend AnachroCon, go next year! Here are the pics:
