After 9 months of preparation, our 60th  birthday celebration is finally in our final count down!!  

Please check the weather forecast at weather.com.  It will be pretty warm in Denver next Friday to Sunday.  The day time temperature is low 90s with 30% chance of scattered shower.  But the night time temperature is still around 60s.  The day time and night time temperature difference is huge, so make sure you pack your suit case accordingly.

Here are some suggestions:

- dress in layers 
- comfortable walking shoes
- a light jacket
- sunglasses, sun screen lotion, hat
- umbrella

We will provide two bottles of water per person on Saturday's tour,  and one for Sunday tour.  You may consider bringing your own water bottle if that is not enough for you. 

Please check this website for the latest information (https://sites.google.com/site/beinu1972class/family-profiles/2014---60-in-the-making).  We have some useful information about how to prevent high altitude sickness under "Health Care",  about airport transportation under "Transportation" and hotel information under "Hotel Info".  

So far I have 18 people signed up for the Brown Palace on Sunday 6/29 3PM.  Here is the list:

H04江  琇1
H18徐  萊1
H21張玉治1
H22張秀鈺1
H23張熒珠1
H24張鳳吟1
H52蔡佩芬1
K04任遵訓1
O27宋素英1
O34陳仲蘅1
Q01王文娟1
Q14李佩芸1
B47葉惠慈2
O21林瓊鶯2
S25高妙玲2
 
If you told Peggy that you would like to join the tour but your name is not listed, please email Peggy ppeggyli@gmail.com.  The maximal capacity for a private tour is 20, so we can still take two more.

If you have any last minute questions, please don't hesitate to ask.   

Have a safe trip, and see you all in Denver on 6/27/14!!!

Last minutes reminders  

1.  The latest attendant list with the flight information and contact information was emailed to you.  If you need to find some one to share a taxi ride or a limo ride from the airport to the hotel or vice versa,   it is time to pick up your phone and make arrangement!

2.  If you already sent us the emergency contact names/phones, thank you very much.  If you haven't done so,  please email them to Peggy Li ppeggyli@gmail.com ASAP.  We certainly hope that we don't need to use any of these information, but it is better be safe and prepared.

 

2.  The reunion agenda from 6/27 to 6/29 can be found at  https://sites.google.com/site/beinu1972class/family-profiles/2014---60-in-the-making/program. The registration desk at the hotel will be open from 2 PM to 6 PM, Friday 6/27.  Please get your name tag and gift bag at the registration desk.  The attendant list and the agenda will be included in the registration package, so you don't need to bring a copy.  If you arrive after 6 PM,  please get your name tag and package at the Hotel Check-in desk.  Lucy's cell phone and my cell phone number are listed at the bottom of the agenda.  If you have any question,  you know who to call.

3.  The Friday dinner starts at 6 PM.  The appetizer will be served at 6 and the dinner starts at 7 PM.  We will assemble at the lobby around 5:50 PM and walk to the restaurant together.  If you arrive late, please go to the restaurant directly. 

4.  The Saturday breakfast voucher is in the back of your name tag pocket.  The breakfast time is 7 AM to 10 AM at the PI restaurant, first floor.  The bus leaves at 9 AM sharp, so please finish your breakfast early and gather at lobby around 8:45 AM.  It is a whole day tour, make sure you bring a wind-proof light jacket, hat, sunglasses, sun screen, and wear a pair of comfortable walking shoes.  We will prepare one bottle of drinking water for everybody on the bus, feel free to bring some snack or candy.

5.  Our Sunday tour starts at 8:30 AM, the Sunday breakfast is not included, but you should have received the $10 coupon for the buffet breakfast at the PI restaurant when you check in. It means that you pay $10 all-inclusive breakfast, instead of the regular $17.   If you are leaving on Sunday, make sure you check out in the morning.  Yon can store your luggage at a reserved room on the 5th floor near the banquet buffet serving area. The room number will be announced on Saturday.

6.  The Sunday tour will adjourn at the hotel around 1:30 PM.  It takes about 40 minutes to ride from the hotel back to the airport.  If you have an early afternoon departure, make sure you make transportation arrangement in advance.  Again a fixed rate taxi for four people (it will be $51+ tip from the hotel) is still the best deal and the easiest solution for most of us.

7.  For people who leave on Sunday evening or Monday,  Lucy suggested several good restaurants in Downtown Denver:

 

  a. Casa Bonita - a fun and very unique Mexican restaurant with indoor diving shows. http://casabonitadenver.com/. The dinner cost is about $16-$17 per person and it is about 13 minutes ride from Hilton.  It is best to take a taxi to get there.

  b. Cheesecake Factory - http://locations.thecheesecakefactory.com/co/denver-19.html, about 0.6 miles from the hotel, 12 minute walking distance

  c.  There are several restaurants along the Larimer Street as well as in Larimer Square : http://restaurants.larimersquare.com/.  The Square is about 0.5 miles from the hotel or 10 minute walking distance.

As always, if you have any questions about the reunion, don't hesitate to contact us.  Wish you all a safe trip to Denver and see you soon!

Our registration is now complete and we have 133 attendants to the Denver reunion.  It is time to think about the trip and the reunion activities.  


There are a few actions for you to take in the preparation for the reunion:


1)           As a precaution step, we would like to collect  two emergency contacts from each attendant.  Please fill out the following form and send it to ppeggyli@gmail.com.

 

First and Last name

Phone#

Relationship

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2)           Please bring along your health insurance card.

 

3)           The elevation of the destinations you will visit including the city and county of Denver (5,280 ft. = 1,609 meters), Garden of Gods (6,280 ft. = 1,884 meters Colorado Springs), Lake Dillon (9,000 ft. =2,743 meters) and Echo Lake (10,600 ft. = 3,230 meters, this is a side trip, see #6).  If you have a history of heart problem, please consult with your doctor for advisement.

 

4)           Please review a short summary to cope with high altitude symptoms via the link -   http://guide.denverpost.com/lists/8-tips-avoid-mile-high-altitude-sickness/

                In essence, high carb such as candies and orange juice usually alleviate potential symptoms.

 

5)          We will have karaoke and dance after Saturday's dinner.  If you would like to sing,  please send us the name of the song by 5/31.  

6)          For before and after reunion activities, here are a few website for your reference:  www.grayline.com/denver,  www.millercoors.com , www.denver.com etc.  There are a few classmates who will participate in a bus tour to Echo Lake on 6/26 (http://www.grayline.com/tours/denver/whistles-bells-and-mountain-peaks-5908_16/).  The discount price is $90 per person.  If you arrive early and would also like to join,  please email me and let me know.  Denver and Rocking Mountain are one of the most beautiful regions of the country.  If you want to arrive early or stay longer after the reunion, there are plenty to do and lots to see. 

We will have more information regarding the reunion when the time is getting closer.  For latest attendance list please click https://sites.google.com/site/beinu1972class/family-profiles/2014---60-in-the-making/attendance, if I missed your update again,  sorry about that and don't give up on me,  send it again and I promise I will eventually get it :)
