Friday began with an 08:00 a.m. breakfast at the famous Triple XXX in West Lafayette, followed by a 10:00 a.m. Tee-off for the Golf Outing at Edwood Glenn Country Club. Much fun was had by all with 18 holes played in sunshine and unusually hot temperatures, followed by prizes in several categories.

Golfers had a couple of hours to relax before heading to downtown Lafayette for the "Ice Breaker" at Sergeant Preston's of the North Guests began to arrive at 7:00 p.m. and were treated to a private outdoor patio with attached banquet room. Much reminiscing and fun was enjoyed by almost 100 classmates and their partners. The webmaster left at 12:30 and a large group were still having fun around a big table on the patio.
