Bay Area
A bowling evening at the Albany Bowl is set for Sunday, May 6: call or write to Sarah Scott Davis '96 at sarahsd@ pacbell.net, 510/559-2963. Explore the wild side of the Bay Area at the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve at a hike on June 17; respond to Drew McCormick '82, drew@tcmg .com. If anyone is interested in starting a writing group, please email Michelle Gallinger '99 at michelle.gallinger@gartner.com. Join the Bay Area online alumni club, a place to partake of discussions, chat, post files and photographs, and more. For more information, go to http://members.aol.com/ BarcaNet or email Drew McCormick '82, drew@tcmg .com. Alumni and their friends enjoyed an April outing to the DiRosa Art Preserve, and William Abernathy '88 had a successful party in January at his place in south San Francisco.

Boston
Members of the Boston alumni chapter went skiing in Maine, had a dessert-laden potluck, and celebrated the Chinese New Year with firecrackers, mah jongg, and food. We are now looking for events to hold in the summer; send suggestions to slam@berkshire.net.

Chicago
Chicago area Reed alumni gathered in February at a bowling party at Waveland Lanes. Fifteen Reedies and a few significant others attended. The bowling was, for the most part, not very good (Gil was the best), but everyone had fun and all are looking forward to the next event. If you are in the Chicago area and want to be on our email list for future gatherings, email David Perry at bonzodman@ aol.com or Juliet Kim at kim_juliet@hotmail.com.

Portland
Spring events included a show by folk dance group Balkanarama and a garden club seminar by Lucy Hardiman, a national horticultural consultant. The chapter spearheaded alumni involvement in Renn Fayre in April and will be coordinating a weekend at Camp Westwind for the fall. The chapter head is Robin Tovey '97, robin_tovey@kvo.com.

Rainier
The Rainier chapter was pleased to welcome President Koblik to the Experience Music Project in Seattle on April 25, when alumni and friends enjoyed a reception and a chance to say farewell to the outgoing president. Earlier in April alumni served meals to about 100 homeless people at a Seattle church, coordinated by Marta Smith Franzen '77. The Reeding Group continues to meet monthly and enjoyed a particularly lively discussion of Vikram Seth's The Golden Gate in February. Also popular are the monthly brew pub outings sponsored by the Reed College Urban Brewing Experience (RCUBE), led by Erik Spekman '91 and Jim McGill '70. Newcomers are always welcome at both groups, and schedules are available at http://eephus.com/rainierchapter. The steering committee is working on plans for a theatre outing, as well as the annual summer picnic. Check the web site or call Barb Carter Radin '75 at 206/ 523-2484 for more information.

 

Southern California
The chapter book group meets monthly, usually in the afternoon on the second Sunday. Alumni visiting from out of the area are invited to call ahead for particulars, read the book, and join the discussion. The annual chapter picnic is planned for September, probably the 16th, though final arrangements had not yet been made at press time. For information, call Robert Hadley '53 at 310/391-1427 or send email to BobPatHadley @aol.com.
