    Reunion Week Activities Suggestions

    King's Island
    Good News! I have discount tickets that bring the price down to $27.25 per adult.

    Those going to K. I. for sure:
      Edi and family (6 or 7 people)

    Kings Island opens at 10 am. The best place to meet for coupon exchange and to connect with everyone else is outside the main entrance at the group sales booth. If we meet there at opening time, then we'll all save money. If there is any reason that you won't be there at 10 am, then call me on my cell phone from a phone booth and we can arrange to meet you at the gate. (513) 505-6545

    Disk (Frisbee) Golf
    I played the Woodland Mound golf course and it is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
