February 23, 2018:  BGSU Homecoming is Oct 13, 2018, NOT on our reunion weekend. Falcons are on the road for an away game so that's even better! That will really help with hotels and restaurants for us.
Ron is looking into group rates for BG hotels; they will be posted online when available: check under "Travel & Hotel Info" tab.
Group rates are already posted for Perrysburg hotels.

In?  If you want to play, please let me know as soon as you can do – it would really help in the planning to know our count.
