The Class chose to move its Fall Mini-Reunion weekend from Homecoming weekend at the end of October to the weekend of October 8-10, which included the Yale football game, to take advantage of better weather, better foliage, a later sunset, and the holiday weekend.  We started the weekend with the Class dinner at Elixir restaurant in downtown White River Junction on Friday evening at 8:00 PM.  The restaurant gave us our own room.  There were 15 Classmates and spouses who came for dinner and drinks earlier: Ron and Janet Weiss, Joe Nathan and Lola Wright, Bill and Faith Rich, Peter and Helen Fahey, Jim and Bev Lawrie, Ed Heald, Sue Heald was under the weather, John Engelman, John Everett,and David Walden, in from Atlanta, but scouting the Upper Valley for retirement.  Dinner was delicious, we were able to order from the regular restaurant menu and wine list.  A good and enjoyable time was had by all.

After a Class Executive Committee meeting on Saturday morning, we repaired to the front lawn of Alpha Delta, thanks to John Engelman, for a pre-game tailgate, thanks to Ed Heald and John Engelman, to which the same cast of characters from dinner reappeared, plus a few additions, such as Dave Peck.  We headed off to the Yale game across the street, and once again having let our opponents jump ahead on their first possession, the Big Green rallied back to tie the game in the fourth quarter.  After a turnover, the Yale placekicker, who had had a really bad day up to that point, kicked the winning field goal as time ran out.

Football was followed later in the afternoon and evening by the Women's and then Men's soccer matches against Yale at Burnham Field and by the 50th Anniversary dinner of the Dartmouth Rugby Football Club.

Sunday included a brunch get together of some Classmates, some of whom then went up to Haverhill, NH, to hear Classmate Greg Marshall preach at his church further up there in Grafton County, NH.  A late Sunday dinner then included David Walden, Joe Nathan and Lola Wright, and John Everett at Molly's in Hanover.
