Meet & Greet, Friday, August 13, 2010 7 pm to whenever This event is in anticipation of several out-of-towners arriving on Friday and wanting to get started with partying rather than sitting in their hotel room waiting for the picnic on Saturday. Itâ€™s also a chance for locals to start partying early, and welcome the out-of-towners. We expect that a few folks from the Lake George cruise will stop by as well. You donâ€™t need a ticket for this event, just show up. We will gather at the bar at the Indigo Hotel, A Google map for the location of the meet & greet is here. Saturday morning, August 14 Fill this time in however you want. Suggestions? Swing by the old school, drive around Latham. Locals might want to open their home for coffee and donuts. Out-of-towners can bring the donuts. Saturday, August 14, 12 noon to 7 pm This is the main event. Krauseâ€™s Grove is our host. The place is located on the Mohawk River directly across from the old Colonie Town Park. Your ticket purchased from the reunion committee buys you all day picnic food, and at around 4 pm your choice of BBQ chicken, or regular chicken. Google map to Krauseâ€™s Grove is here. Scott MacPherson is arranging to have all four members of the original Utmost Four (Scott and Gary MacPherson, Mark Belair and Leo Buchakjian) perform for us. They will be recording the entire performance, and a DVD of the performance will be available for a nominal charge. Utmost Four t-shirts will be available. A dance floor, along with recorded music will be provided for a good part of the day. Sunday, August 15 This is a second opportunity for you to arrange your own time.
