    Did you hear about the nerd who became rich, went to his reunion to rub everybody's nose in it and ended up getting his ass kicked?

    I guess we tgp’ers aren’t the type.

    The deal is in Texas, this girl living in North Carolina wants to book an 80’s band in her town for it. Fly them out, the whole deal.

    Huh?

    The 50th was so much fun, we're doing a 55th next year.

    They've never had one. So, I defaulted into a no.

    I guess my 15th would be this year, if people even get together for the 15th, never even considered that the 10th came and went until right now

    @27sauce - I don't really see a huge down side to attending a reunion, assuming you're not avoiding someone. Worst case, you have a boring evening.

    I've gone to most of mine and generally enjoyed them to varying degrees. But I knew a lot of people in HS because I moved in a lot of different circles and I always end up glad to see someone I haven't seen since HS or shortly thereafter. And I rather like that.

    At my ten year, I spent a lot of the evening talking to good friend who moved to Tennessee right after he graduated. He's not on social media so that night and a weekend I spent in Nashville are the only times I've seen him. Good guy and good conversation. At my 15 or 20, I reconnected with a friend I knew since kindergarten but lost touch with. We've since become great friends and he shows up at a lot of my gigs. I was stunned to find out that he plays guitar and records some music, but all at home. I've been able to coax him on stage where he has since performed some songs with me and done some originals at open mics.

    But that's me. I have friends who never go to them and that's fine.

    I went to a small DOD school in Japan. My graduating class had like 68 people in it. As a group, we are a lot tighter than most schools mainly because we were all military dependents. We've been having all year reunions every 2 years in Las Vegas and my wife and I have been going since 2005. This year will be our 50th anniversary so there are quite a few of my classmates going. We have people from all over the country and from Japan fly in. It's a great time and there are a lot of my fellow classmates that we enjoy seeing. So I guess that's a yes.....

    Never have, never will. It wasn't a happy time in my life and I've kept touch with those who mean something to me. No interest in the others.

    Gotcha. I think I traveled in from Wisconsin for my ten year, but our families were still in the area so I'm sure we did other things on that visit. Plus I was working at a university and had summers off, so it wasn't a big deal to head to Detroit for a week at a stretch. Since then I've been living locally (about ten miles from where I grew up).

    Wondering if you might be pleasantly surprised by how some people have changed (I have been)? Not suggesting you should go, but I spent one reunion talking with a guy I really disliked in HS to find out he grew up to be a pretty nice guy who completely acknowledged he was a jerk in HS.

    I've been to all four of mine (5th, 10th, 20th, 30th) and had a great time every time. And the 40th will be in November. It's a reminder of why these people were your friends in the first place.

    1) Who got fat?
    2) Who got arrested?
    3) Who's dead?

    I went to 10th, 20th and 30th... but have realized that I still dislike going back to that podunk little town. Reunions just remind me I'm glad I don't live there anymore.

    Most of the people I liked from high school are still my friends, and we get together on our own without a reunion.
