Gentlemen of the Great Class of 1965:

I am writing to spread the word about the launch of  '65's new Guys Golf program, which was announced as imminent in the recent Class  Newsletter, and to provide appropriate details for those who may be interested. We are kicking off the program in Scottsdale, AZ, April 1-5, 2007, and the details of this first event have been coordinated by Tucky Mays '65 and arranged by Punch Lochridge '65. This is the Inaugural Event, so be the first to signup!

Note: Due to timing and seasonal room rates/availability, we ask for your RSVP quickly, to Punch Lochridge with $200 deposit, by December 31. The deposit will hold your room; balance to be paid on checkout.  Golf will be paid directly; meals / libations / other group costs will be split and/or paid individually.

If you think you may be interested, or have questions/need more information, please contact Punch (info below) right away.  If you can't decide right away, but may be interested, tell Punch you may be a possible and give a time frame for a more definite answer.

If you are interested but cannot play this time, or would prefer to play when we get closer to your home base, let me know and we will contact you about future events.

This is a way for the Class of 65 to provide more opportunities for classmates to get together in various parts of the country. We hope that you can and will take advantage of this great trip!

Cheers, Happy Year, and Great Golfing!

 Bob Blake
Class Vice President
