And, celebrate we did!! The Clearwater High School Class of 1968's 50th Birthday Blast was held at the Adam's Mark Hotel on Beautiful Clearwater Beach. Although Hurricane Gordon affected the activities somewhat, it was still a fabulous weekend with the best hospitality suite EVER.
And, we had fun with the news crews that were in the parking lot reporting on the hurricane. They picked that area because the waves were "crashing" on the rock jetty and made the storm look much worse than it was. However, the storm did take it's toll by making some people stay home and we didn't make our bar minimum. It was the only reunion where we "lost" money.
