Official date for DustBowl 1998 was July 9-12, 1998 in the mighty metropolis of Galveston, TX (no, they didn't enact the restraint legislation after our last visit!).
The memorial for Steve McDonald was a
stirring experience. As one of the former Chiefs, I can assure you it was one of the
hardest thing I've ever done; I feel certain I can speak for Dave as well. Dave
Phillips gave a brief biography of Steve, and then recollections and memories were
discussed by several people, including Dave, me, Bonnie, Lesley, Jeff, Allen, and Matt.

May 26, 1998
We are on the brink of the Largest Dustbowl ever in it's 8 year history! Total Confirmed now at 46: 28 adults, 14 kids, and 4 infants. Still hoping to hear from Bob Emmick and a few others.
for final payment of accomidations. As the Elliott'shave joined us, there will be a small decrease in the per family price ($23). This money will be thrown into the food category so Joan and Kristi don't break the bank buying food for us. Thus please send the total of $275: 1807B Monta, Liberty, Texas 77575. Please be prompt with your payment so it doesn't get lost in the move shuffle. The dungeon is small, moldy, and cramped.
Date of arrival needed from the following: Ellerbe, Jenkins, Martin, Foster
Confirming arrival dates
Tuesday: Frey, Menger, Hilt
Thursday: Phillips, Jarvis, McNeill
The Frey's will be coordinating the Aggie Olympics. I am still seeking a volunteer to organize the Misc catgory( TP, Detergent, Charcoal etc.) Those flying in or managing children less than 13 months are exempt from being pressed into service. I got a list, just bring the stuff and receipt.
I have the Frey's, Hilt, and Moi listing for tickets to Grease for Tuesday or Wednesday night. Any other takers?
A motion for Bunko has been placed. Any Seconds?
May 6, 1998:
(3) Joan M. and Kristi J. have graciously volunteered to coordinate the food plan. More details will be posted later re: plan.
April 23, 1997: The Pogues, Bonnie Scott Olney and family, David & Shelli Pogue, and possibly Dudley Waite (EMS, wait....................................) and wife will be there but day-tripping. Also a possibility to see Obi Wan (VLR) and family. We're probably going to set up a "day-trip donation" amount so we can cover food et al, as our numbers continue to grow. If you're planning on day-tripping in, it's critical that you let Lesley know.By the way, that's 26 adults, 13 kids, 3 infants!
TWO beach houses: one beachfront (1st row) house with great porch and waving distance to kids in the water; one beach house (2nd row) about 1/2 mile away (the closer one sold out from under us!). Not as deluxe as previous Beach house but they are in the "comfortable" range and a step above "functional". 7 private rooms some, 3 open beds in loft, total of 4 bathrooms, 2 outdoor rinse off showers with H/C. Bed space for adult, kiddos on the floor. We are on Terramar Beach (map) -> no driving, no (overt) alcohol on the beach. Details on food and what to bring later. Strangely enough Linens (e.g., Sheets, Blankets, Bath and Beach towels) are not provided. Each House has a washer/ dryer.
Presently have 11 confirmed families. Estimated cost for Lodging Thurs-Sunday is $375.00 per family ($25 cost associated w/ recent house change). However, as we could only rent for a week (Monday to Monday), all are welcome to come early and leave the following Monday by noon. However, arrival and departure time does not affect family cost.
Deposit $1500 already placed.
Reservations by Ellerbe, Foster, Frey, Hilt, Jarvis, Jenkins, Martin, McNeill, Menger, O'Hara, and Phillips families.
No word from Villareal. Elliott finally found, but non-committal.
