At this point, we would like not to distribute any tickets “at the door” at OCC. That is likely to be pandemonium. If you want them mailed to you, I believe that could be arranged. You just have to have faith in the US postal system that something mailed on Tuesday will make it to you in time on Friday.
WHAT TO WEAR: There have been some questions and discussions on what to wear to the reunion. The general guideline is "Cocktail Attire". This is defined in several articles on-line and provides for a lot of variation. The key is to feel comfortable and expect that there will be people at our reunion in a variety of styles. Another suggestion is "California Classy". Below are some links which you might find useful, or at least entertaining.

Finally, we have classmates coming to our reunion from many regions of the country. This comment from the last article may be relevant:
"Note that these categories differ somewhat from region to region. My husband and I were invited to dinner at my major professor's house when I was in graduate school. When I asked him about dress, he replied, "Casual, of course." To me, that's jeans and a top, or maybe a denim or cotton skirt instead of jeans. As we were getting ready, at the last minute we upgraded to "business casual" - and good thing, too. When we arrived, his wife was wearing white velvet pants and a very dressy black top, and he was wearing a gray suit and tie. The table was set with their good china and silver! This was in a university town on the West Coast - but this couple was originally from the East Coast. There's a difference! Likewise, my cousin (who lives and works in Washington DC) defines "casual" as a sports jacket and slacks instead a suit!"
Please, please, don't stress about what to wear. We want you to come and wear whatever is comfortable. Regional costumes are most welcome. Come and enjoy. Believe it or not, most people are way less concerned about what you are wearing than what they are wearing!
