Ciao LAHS Alumni and guests!
Your 2015 LAHS Reunion Committee cordially invites you to enjoy San Diego Oct. 8-11 2015 for the 26th Annual LAHS Reunion! Woo-Hoo! The time is drawing near for this annual 2015 Reunion -- it's just 5 weeks away -- so if you have not already made your reservations, please do so soon.
We are excited that we have booked a great hotel in a great city for our reunion, and now we need YOU! Our special rate of $95 a night is valid from Oct. 5 through Oct. 14, so you can come early and stay late. (The website reunion reservation link will say rates are just good Oct 8-11, but that's just boilerplate they apparently can't change and it's not true. Also Wi-Fi and parking are included for our group)
Just be sure to book your room before Sept 24 when the special rate will expire!!! . Use the special reunion reservation link or call the Hampton Inn Seaworld (3888 Greenwood St, San Diego 92110) at855-213-0582 and mention the LAHS Reunion when booking.
From the airport you take a free airport shuttle to the Hotel, and there are enough locals driving into town that you really won't need a car at all. It is walking distance from the hotel to the San Diego Old Town with its shops and restaurants and also to the Transit Center with Amtrak trains from all the way up the West Coast, and also local San Diego city trollies and busses. So, if you are coming down the coast, consider taking Amtrak. If you think that two way Amrtraking might be too much 'training' for you, then just go one way via train and fly the other way. (We did that on a trip to Santa Fe a few years ago and loved it)
Of course we all come to a reunion to spend time with each other, and there is lots to enjoy in the area and we will be organizing ride-sharing mini-tours that we can all do together to local attractions like the Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, The San Diego Zoo, Sea World, The Safari Park, and Balboa Park that you can enjoy together with your friends of old.
For planning purposes a tentative day-by-day plan might look like this, but of course everyone if free to do what they want when they want:
*Wed Oct 7: Arrive, socialize, try to remember everybody's names <g>
*Thurs Oct 8: San Diego Zoo Safari Park (about an hour away - we'll carpool)
*Fri Oct 9: Balboa Park (museums and people-watching and San Diego Zoo)
*Sat Oct 10: Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum (I have a friend who will arrange a special group tour for us} and then the traditional Sat. Alumni Night Dinner, probably in Little Italy if we can find a good deal there.
*Sun Oct 11: Picnic and Wine tasting at local or Temecula Vineyards
*Mon Oct 12: Depart, HappyHappyHappy, and planning for next year!
Your hosts will be Andrea Brennan Carney (LAHS 60), David Ellerman (LAHS 61), and Harry Heflin (LAHS 62), and we really want to see ALL of you there!
