Flexibility is the Philosophy

Below is the e-mail that was sent to everyone who responded to our RSVP for the BBQ. We hope it clarifies things, in case they were confusing or misunderstood:

Hi Everyone,

The CCFAF Board wanted to make a clarification in order to prevent any confusion that could arise as a result of the packed schedule we have on Memorial Day weekend.  Hopefully, by sharing a bit of our philosophy, you’ll have a better understanding of what’s happening.

First of all, as your fellow alumni, we all work 40+ hours per week, and then have to go home to take care of our loved ones (spouses, kids, etc.), so we know that weekends are precious.  Three day weekends are even more precious.  With that in mind, we wanted to make sure that the events of our Reunion respected that sanctity, and allowed you to have downtime should you choose to do so.  At the same time, we felt it would be a shame to have people travel for hours only to come to a BBQ lunch, eat, play games, and turn around to head home.

Consequently, we planned two main events: the BBQ, and the Evening Program.  If nothing else, we’d encourage you to attend these two events. Then we added a number of peripherally related, fun events to fill in the time.  Please feel free to attend any or all of the events.  If you just want to come to the BBQ, and spend the rest of your weekend in SLO relaxing and enjoying the beauty that is SLO, you are more than welcome to do that.  On the other hand, if you’re totally gung-ho about attending every single event that we’ve planned and will be racing around taking photos of everything, you’re welcome to do that as well.  We’re giving you the liberty and flexibility of doing nothing, anything, or everything. Again, this was driven by our knowledge that weekends are precious commodities, especially in the working world, and our friendships and relationships with others are also important.

We hope that clarifies things.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  We’re counting down the days until we can see all of you again.

In Christ,
The CCFAF Board of Directors
