FRIDAY EVENING 10/08/2021

Memorial Surf Paddle Out and Reunion Bonfire

We begin our Friday night just before sundown with a moving memorial surf paddle out and ceremony. The Paddle Out, surfing's most hallowed and beautiful ritual, will honor the classmates that have gone before us.
 

Paddle Out and Pier

Guests who would like to attend will gather together on the San Clemente pier above. Wildcat classmate Pastor Elias Flores will preside over the event while fellow classmates; Daniel Vasquez, Dave Vasquez and Mike Eggleston will wear wetsuits and carry rose petals out to the ocean to help us pay our respects.

* If you are a surfer and would like to participate in the water, be sure to comment BELOW to inform us. We will contact you with further details.

Reunion Bonfire

At the conclusion of the paddle out we will move our event to the Parque Del Mar, adjacent to the pier. With mesmerizing views, a cool ocean breeze and plenty of benches, we will warm you with both conversation and our Reunion Bonfire. Of course you may want to bring your own chairs to be sure you have a comfy place to sit and enjoy the night. The temps will be near 65° so be sure to dress for it.

Food and Drink

There will be food and limited drinks at the event but we need your help. Please RSVP BELOW if you will attend this special Friday night event because we need to know how tacos to order. Ice chests are welcome if you'd like to bring your own food and drinks. 

The Reunion Bonfire will be a wonderful, relaxed place to catch up with classmates and friends that you haven't seen in a while, maybe even 41 years! We are excited to see you all the night before the big reunion event on Saturday.
