Spring Quarter, Sixth Year (2001) - PalmerFest Weekend
Early spring quarter, out at BW-3: Mike and Jill, one happy couple.

Sadly, this picture is of tomorrow's engineers: Wonsic, Kotheimer, Gamber,
Huss came down one weekend and we went out with Darren, who ended up crashing at
my place that night. Here he is waving at the camera, do you see a theme
One early evening at the Pigskin: Dan was getting auctioned-off as a
He wrote and sang (and played) a song to his buyer-to-be.
It was a performance that was classic Otis. I must admit it was funny as
Later that evening at BW-3. Around the table: Jill, Cory, Jen,
Kristen, and Jeff, with Emily and Sean in the next booth over. All were
members of our softball team, the Catfish, even though we only played one game.
Three more members of the catfish: Rich, Jeff, and Nate at BW-3.
Jeff and Megan at BW-3. Megan is another Zachary's survivor.
Friday night of PalmerFest weekend was Morton's bachelor party. After
going out to dinner in Columbus we went to Dave and Buster's. Here's Mort
riding a Harley, beer within reach.
And, of course, my personal favorite, Daytona USA, arguably the best video game
ever made. Tom, Morton, and Huss getting ready to drive.
Then it was back in Athens for PalmerFest. We headed up to the Pigskin
about 3 o'clock on Saturday, where we ran into some old friends that had made
the trip back: Julie (I think), Jason, Shannon, Ryan, and Jeff.
Shannon made the trip back all the way from Orlando, FL.
Leake, Brad, and Pieton up at the Pigskin. Notice the look on Jay's
face. And here I thought it was a tender moment.
Back to the basics: I just thought it was funny when I turned around and
Huss was playing Ms. Pac Man.
And the old crew from 10 S. High (minus Tom who was taking a nap!): Lil'
Guy, Otis, Sweetie Pietie, Weasel, Boom, and Hussle-T.
And then it was Otis's turn to play Ms. Pac Man.
Of course, it wouldn't be a reunion without playing CapCom Bowling at the
C.I.: Jay, Dan, Huss, Brad, and Shrout.
And, naturally, the golf ball was back for the weekend. Caruso was
drinking a mixed drink when he got nailed with it. Ouch! Jay, Brad,
and Huss look on.
Look at the intensity: Shrout, Huss, Brad, and Dan.
And some pool. Pieton and Brad shooting some stick.
Pieton and Bednar at the C.I.
Tom and Morton joined us out early that evening. The old 402A gang:
Leake, Hussle-T, T-Gunn, and Hortense.
We headed down to PalmerFest around 6 or 7 o'clock. Here's a shot of the
scene at that time. Pieton, Bauer, Brad, and Dan up ahead carrying the
necessary equipment: beer, ice, and a trash can to hold them. We
were pretty well set.
Another shot looking down Palmer St. as we head toward the lawn and stage up
ahead on the right.
It was a beautiful day and people didn't let it go to waste.
We found a spot and planted ourselves. Situated around our trash
can: Bauer, Brad, Pieton, and Oney. Derek made the trip down from
