From the Winter 2013 issue of Kings Pointer Magazine,
Greetings fellow classmates, this is my inaugural column for the Kings Pointer magazine it is a relatively brief one, but I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the work we have done over the past year in trying to bring the class back together. For the last 10 years we’ve scattered to the four corners of the earth, and it’s been quite a challenge trying to catch up with everyone. I look forward to working with Alison Buckler to provide the column for each issue of the magazine, as well as continuing the project of tracking the whole class down.
Many thanks to Jeff Greco, for his work as Class Agent over the past decade, he’s been working to get these columns into the magazine
Stephen Madgwick reported in to let everyone know his wife gave birth to their third child a boy named Ittai Scott. Steve and family recently moved back to Kansas, and Ittai, (pronounced Ee-tie), was born at home.
Things got a little crazy in the Northeast during the recent Hurricane. The salvage company Tim Williamson works for was hired to pump out the subways and tunnels connecting Manhattan to New Jersey and the outer boroughs. As I write this column he’s been working round the clock with Mike Gillespie who they hired as a subcontractor to get the area’s transportation systems back up and running.
As for me, my wife Alison and I are eagerly anticipating the birth of our second child this coming spring. After 4 and a half years commuting into Manhattan, I accepted a position with a smaller engineering firm so I could work closer to home. My commute went from close to 2 hours each way, to about 8 minutes each way.
It was a great pleasure to catch up with everyone at homecoming, I hope you all had a terrific day. We definitely learned some lessons putting a production like this together for the first time. I think we’ll be able to streamlines some things and make improvements for the 15 year reunion. For those that weren’t able to make it this time around we hope to see you next time.
Finally, please let us know your whereabouts and help contribute to this columns. For the past decade, my favorite part of getting Kings Pointer in the mail is checking in what everyone has been up to in the past few months, but we can’t share the information without updates from the class. By the time this issue goes to press we’ll have a “lost at sea” page on the class website http://www.usmma2002.com . If you weren’t getting homecoming updates, or emails from Jeff you might be lost at sea. Please log in and check it out, leave a comment on the page, or send an email to JTrynosky@usmma2002.com we’ll update the master list and take your name down.
Until next time
