6th Annual U.S. West Coast
NORTH POINT REUNION in SAN FRANCISCO Bay Area
Saturday, June 7, 2003

Report on and Pictures of the Reunion

Calling all North Pointers:

 
March 30, 2003
Soon it will be a year since our last Annual Western Region Reunion. So it is time to start planning.  And it is Northern California's turn to set the stage. We are thinking of a venue in Silicon Valley, somewhere between Sunnyvale, Cupertino and San Jose.  The date is Saturday June 7th.We are counting on a good showing from the alumni here in the North; but are confident that the South, as in the past, will more than carry its weight and journey up here by air, carpooling, or otherwise. We also look forward to seeing our brethren from the Pacific Northwest, and those areas that should rightly pass as Western rather than MidWestern!
 
At this time, we need to hear from you if you can come; and if you have any thoughts about the activities for the evening.  Feel free to correspond with me, Ashok Sadhwani at ashok@asmara.com or Monishi Sanyal at monishi@INTERSOFTUSA.COM.
 
With the world so much in turmoil, we need to live again the days of our boyhood, regale one another with the pranks we indulged in, and invigorate all with the optimism and energy that infected us as we passed through those sacred halls of "the old school on the hill".

Reunion Details

We meet again, this time in a novel format from noon till almost midnight. This daylong event shall be a test and provide a model for successive reunions. So let us wear those chips on our shoulders with pride and feathers in our caps with humility on this day as we roll, rollick and sway in the nostalgic winds of our past.
