Save The Date -- Sometime In March -- 2017

The Texas contingent notes: public school spring break: Friday, 4:00 p.m. March 10, 2017, through Sunday night, March19, 2017 (third full week of March).

The West Coast contingent notes: public school spring break:  Friday, 4:00 p.m. March 24, 2017, through Sunday night, April 2, 2017 (fifth, or last, full week of March).

It's possible some reunionites will be out at Flathead Lake during the third week of March (2017) and some will be there during the fifth week of March (2017).

Bruce is looking at being in Flathead both weeks.

Bottom line: things are still in flux, but the last three weeks of March is still the general time frame. Various contingents may want to discuss among themselves when they might be out there.

The Red Pan

May has a "loaner" red pan from Wal-Mart. She won't get a genuine red copper pan until she visits Carl, assuming his inventory has not been exhausted. For now:

Save The Date: Last Week In March, 2017

Pencil this in; save the date.

The 63rd annual Memorial Paul and Christine Oksol family reunion will be held the last week in March, 2017. The reunion will kick off in Williston, ND, on Carl's birthday in February, where those who have not gotten their Red Copper frying pan might be able to get one, assuming a) they are eligible; and, b) there are still any pans left.

The reunion will be celebrated in various venues across the upper northwest from Portland, OR, to the Black Hills, SD, to Williston, ND.

Headquarters and culmination for the reunion will be Flathead, Montana.

Tee-shirts may or may not be available. That decision will be made once we have a hospitality committee.

Some initial thoughts, on committee assignments:
  • Temporary Event Coordinator: Bruce
  • West Coast Logistics and Planning Committee, Chair: Jan
  • Southwest USA Logistics and Planning Committee, Chair: Kathy
  • Minnesota Conference Logistics and Planning Committee, Chair: Yvonne
  • Williston Logistics and Planning Committee, Chair: open
  • Red Pan Committee: Carl
  • Bakken Area Logistics and Planning Committee, Chair: Bruce
