To everyone who wish to attend.

I'd like to follow-up with our summer (first week in August, I'm thinking about August 4th) reunion in Southern California.

I would love to meet you guys.

I did receive a good response from.. let's see.. Esther, Andi, Chrisy, (forgive me the ones I do not remember) when I initially posted, this time I need the following:

I need the names of the ladies who want to come up to Carlsbad for the day.

My husband and I are timeshare owners at the Carlsbad Inn- we have "day time" use privileges and for those who may want to spend the night, I may be able to book a room for a fraction of the actual cost.

I need as soon as possible the names so I can make arrangements and set up a time and date for the reunion.

I do not need money at this point, however I do need a # so that I can begin planning. We have time but I would like to take care of it as soon as possible.

During the day time, we can go for a walk on the beach, which is only a few steps behind the Inn. There are bikes, surfboards, etc. for rent.There is also a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. Sounds fun!!! UH? For lunch or dinner we can go to "Fidel's" (rt next to the resort) or any other place. I do not want to impose. I just know this place like the palm of my hand, and the food is delicious. This is a wonderful place. You guys will love it.

I do not live in Carlsbad, our Founder Christine does. I live in Poway; about 45 minutes drive. I'm willing to take responsibility for this to happen, all am asking is the commitment from you ladies.

Please respond.

P.S. I will be off next week as I have to attend a family reunion in Incline Village. I will return on the 20th of June. I will be checking this site while on vacation.
