In his recent comment, Scott Clayton rightfully observed that "we need to take some 'baby steps' and do some mini-reunions." Well, it seems that an impromptu opportunity has popped up!
On Sunday evening, May 3, 7:30, at Gold Bar Espresso, 3141 S McClintock Dr, Tempe, AZ (480) 839-3082, three (3) of our esteemed classmates will be jammin' on some jazz tunes! Sal Cafiero and Rusty Falk perform together regularly, as part of the band, "Jazzola," and they've persuaded Jeff Cole to make the trip from Tucson to join them for this very special performance. Folks, that's what I'd call a critical mass!
I hope lots of other 71 buffs can take this in. I know of a few who have already declared their intent!
UPDATE! Photos from the performance and evening:

The most 71 Buffs in one place in some time! From back, left, Rusty Falk, Tom Ditsworth, Stephen Cole (leaning over), Tom Hascall Cole, Mike Hudnall, Sal Cafiero, Don Hull and Jeff Cole.
WAIT, There's more!
Word has it that there will be another performance this coming Sunday, May 10, same time and same place! What class and what a Class!
A nicely produced video file made by our own Duane Ernst, of the Jazzola performance on May 10, 2015:
From The Class of 1971 here is Sal Cafiero, Jeff Cole, Rusty Falk and more..... "Jazzola"
Outstanding! We'll have to watch for announcements of future performances!
