6. Next reunion.

TASers seem to want a central location and like the idea of every three years.
That would mean the next reunion would happen in 2013. Still need to listen more.

7. TASer to be co-host on July 21 and July 28 BRATCON radio shows.

TAS's (& TASA's) Joe Condrill will be BRATCON ("Brat Connection)
radio's co-host for the above two shows.

The July 21 show will feature the Department of Defense Dependents Schools
(DoDDS) teachers' reunion happening live at that time (TAS Faculty member Denny
Hilgar usually attends these) and the July 28 show will talk about reunions.

Listen to both one hour programs at 4 p.m. Pacific/7 p.m.
at: www.voiceamerica/channel/246 . Call in and say hello on the July 28 show
at: 866-472-5788

8. OVERSEAS BRATS silver anniversary gathering.

It's happening October 20-23, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel & Suites in
Bloomington, MN, a suburb of the Minneapolis area. These annual national
happenings are fun and meaningful. Presently TASers Joe Condrill'73 and
Gail Porter Firman'77 are registered. Darlene Hines (TAS Faculty 76-78) and
Janet Gustke'79 are planning on coming. How about you? Email Joe
