Gremlin 49ers Back to Reunions!!
2003 to be Big Time!!
From Ed H. 9/2/2002:
Dean Funk wants to prove he is alive and well with a party. Rumors circulated by Ed Houston are grossly in error and he wants to show everyone that he can take on the world. It is suggested that the '49ers get together within the next year to celibrate Deans reserrection. All those in favor vote yes.
Now when? FEB., MAR., APR., 2003 Place: San Antonio, Tx; Alburqueque NM.; San Diego CA. ; Denver CO.
PLEASE RESPOND one way or the other so I can check that I have your correct Email.
From Ed H. 10/2/2002:
Mark your callendars for the end of April 2003 say 4/29-5/1 as the vote appears to be for San Antonio at that time.
West of the Rockie Mts. voted for San Diego and
East of the Rockies voted for S.A.
so S.A. won by one vote!
Of course Mickie and Lolly said just tell them where as their bags were already packed. We will do approximately the same as was planned and cancelled Oct 2001.
If some one would like to sponsor the outting please yell also if you have additional ideas for us please let us know. Most responses said they were anxious to see everyone so we should have a good turnout of the usual travelers.
Please let me know if you would like to plan and sponsor the outting right away as I would like to get a letter out by Novenber as some of our classmates plan their callendar well in advance.
Dean - I am sorry but you will just have to continue on formaldhyde (gin) until April for your WAKE

FROM ERRONEOUS INFORMATlON IT WAS REPORTED THAT DEAN FUNK HAD EXPIRED. UNTRUE -UNTRUE!!! AS A RESULT THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE HAS BEEN RECEIVED:
"It was a bright starry night in Las Avania as Igor slowly moved toward the crap table. He came nearer and nearer, he noticed a change in the color of Dr. Funkenstein's face. A chill came over him. Could it be possible he thought? As he came nearer still, a smile came across his face, then laughter. He jumped up and down shouting, "He lives, He lives!'
Yes, Dr. Funkenstein slowly sat up and with a hearty laugh he shouted, "LET'S DO IT AGAIN
SAN ANTONIO Here We Come"signed-Dean Funk
