DA ’77 Park City Ski Trip

“So, on our way down from hiking to the Rock during our 45th Reunion, Jim Wade mentioned to me, “boy, these are really a bunch of fun guys. Why do we wait five years to get together?” to which I replied, “Jim, I’ve been saying that every Reunion.” I mentioned that the one thing we all have in common is skiing. Jim readily grabbed the horns and said, “I’ve got this…” And, sure enough, he did. Jim got two houses within a few yards from each other and we flew from both coasts to meet in Park City where we experienced EPIC powder every day for a week. I think we did one groomed run the entire time. Thank god I trained for it because these guys can ski! Skiing Park City and Deer Valley, we pooled our collective buddy passes and everyone was able to enjoy, complete with home cooking and wine I was able to bring in from Sonoma wine country. It was non-stop laughing, joking, telling stories of Deerfield days. True camaraderie and our mutual love and appreciation to Be Worthy of Your Heritage.

And, John Curtis flew in from London! Our mischievous cohorts included Stewart Day, Jim Wade, Jamie MacPherson, Andy Ling, Tom Mallory, Townley Paton, Wayne Wall, Jim Gilmore, John Curtis, Dave Martin, Hamilton Davison, Bob Dewey, and Tucker Smith.” -Andy Ling ’77

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement.
