OK… I’ll just put it out there… I can’t believe it’s our 50th high school reunion! Isn’t that for really old people ;>) It seems like just a few years ago I was playing frisbee football with Bobby Wynn ’72 or rec skiing on Shack Hill with Chuck Hostnik ’72 or getting suspended for attending “All Quiet on the Western Front” in a less than “quiet” state of mind or putting on Fiddler on the Roof with Steve Glovsky ’72 and the rest of our class. I have to confess I am very excited about seeing everyone at our 50th and reminiscing about our time together 50 years ago and seeing what everyone has been up to since then. Thanks Lodi and all for putting together a great reunion for us!
In a nutshell, I came close to going to the Olympic Games in Sailing in 1984, then was an athletic director for 21 years at a small private K-12 school in Westport, CT while my wife Betsy and I raised two great kids (now 34 and 30…yikes), and now I’m self-employed coaching sailors of all levels, including several America’s Cup and US Olympic Teams. Betsy and I still live in Southport, CT where I grew up.
