I attended the C Club lunch Saturday June 22, a place for honoring more the mainstream of intercollegiate sports at a lunch at the new Weitz Center of the Arts. Then, after buying books written by Carl's including Lance Craighead, I wondered over beyond Lyman Lakes to the big Rec Center.
It had been refreshing to re connect with Lance Craighead, '69 at the Rube n Stein for dinner the night before, with Bob and Ann Aby '67 now of Northfield and then we opted to walk to the Contented Cow, the local watering hole along with Cannon River, where I reconnected with other guys who co created the first Rugby Teams. Al Wells '71 and Todd Carlson of '70 and others were there to share in the evening story telling over a brew, that tend to be part of the Rugby tradition I have learned. I had a local cider complements of Lance and then I met a woman who works at Macalester College in the Chem Dept who went to Frost Valley YMCA in the 1970's the same era I worked with Halbe Brown there. Neat to connect and share stories. Thanks Karen from Macalester Collage.
