The tenth OC2-70 reunion on September 18-22 put us in the center of the restored colonial capital of Virginia, a living monument both to the English colony and the birth of a nation.

The Stanfields and Shipps hosted a great weekend of events.  On Thursday afternoon we toured Jamestown, where the first English permanent settlement in North America was established in 1607.  That evening we gathered at the Stanfields' home for Virginia barbecue, self-made music and a refreshing beverage or two. 

Friday was a day for close encounters with the 18th century, beginning with a short walk from our hotel to Colonial Williamsburg.  Guides took us through the restored streets, shops where craftsmen and merchants demonstrated how things were made and sold, and the capitol building that was the seat of the new world's first elected legislature.  That evening we dined in true Tidewater colonial fashion at the Kings Arms Tevern, escorted by a redcoat fife-and-drum trio

Saturday was a multiple-choice day, touring more historic sites, golfing a the Golden Horseshoe, or just taking it easy and enjoying a fine first day of autumn.  We ended our tenth reunion with dinner at the Williamsburg Lodge, sang another chorus of the Benning's School for Boys Alma Mater, and agreed we'll reunite in St. Louis in 18 months.

Photos finally!
