Wakefield Class of 1960
Sarasota Spring Break 2011

Spring 2011's mini-Reunion in Florida; bigger/better than ever

Another spring of great weather, beautiful surroundings, and hangin' out with lots of '60 Warriors

The 2011 spring Sarasota gathering - a.k.a. Ken's Party in Paradise - chalked up a record attendance.  Over 60 people participated this year, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Headquarters was the same as last year, the Tropical Breeze Resort on Siesta Key in Sarasota.  Festivities spanned May 5th - 8th, beginning just after noon on Thursday with a welcome BBQ, and concluding with a Sunday morning good-bye breakfast.

Our headquarters and hospitality area was again the Pool House, centrally located on the Tropical Breeze compound.  (It's in the triangular area just right of center on the Property Map above.)  And Warriors occupied the majority of the units in the area.

We will be going back in 2012, and Tropical Breeze is taking reservations now!  So don't put this on your calendar and forget about it until a few weeks before the event.  Make that reservation as soon as you've decided to go.  DO NOT BOOK ON-LINE.  Talk with Jessica, the contact for group reservations, at 800-300-2492 and mention Wakefield High School or Ken Scruggs to get our special rates.

Thursday afternoon

Opening Ceremonies

The official start of Sarasota 2011 was around noon on Thursday, although some had arrived a day or more earlier to cram in a little more R&R.  Thursday was just an afternoon of relaxing after travel, and enjoying the company of other '60 Warriors (and spouses, partners, etc) not seen for a while (decades in some cases).

Thursday evening

Dinner out at a landmark once again

For the first night's dinner, we again went to Captain Brian's.  It's not flashy, and it's not expensive, but it's tasty - and it's the way eating out on a getaway with friends should be.
