THE 2007 ALL-CARDINAL

What is the All-Cardinal?
---Since 1994, members of Cardinal Classes have been meeting on the third weekend of July to enjoy the Fayette, Iowa area.  An Agenda has been developed that is flexible enough to meet everyone's needs.  We encourage you to join us. 
---The All-Cardinal Agenda is intended to be simple and self-perpetuating and thus can be a base for classes that would like to schedule individual or multi-class reunions, dinners, or activities.  Pass the word and invite any Cardinal or Little Peacock you communicate with.  The All-Cardinal will be a fun weekend.   About 100+ Cardinals attend every year.  If you cannot make it back this year perhaps another time, but stay in contact.   You will like the ALL-CARDINAL!! 
FRIDAY , JULY 20, 2007
---Enjoy Northeast Iowa, fish golf, shop, tour, visit.  Several early arrivals usually play golf informally and socialize at Big Rock. 
---Even if you do not play golf, come out and visit in the clubhouse, or walk the course with some of the golfers.
---The Big Rock Clubhouse tends to be a gathering point.
FRIDAY EVENING,  JULY 20, 2007
---Nothing is planned, a few people are always around Main Street, at the "Primetime"/"Downtown Lounge."
---The "Trailside Inn", old Smith's Grocery, serves meals.
---Blimpie's near the new AmeriInn on the corner of 150 and 93 serves food all day. 
---Any class or group is free to plan their own gathering around the village.   Everyone should feel free to socialize informally on Friday evening.  It is a good time to plan small group activities for the next day.
SATURDAY BREAKFAST, JULY 21, 2007
---No formal breakfast gathering is planned, however  there is usually someone at breakfast on Main Street at Trailside, or having coffee at Blimplie's or the Coffee Shop.

---An ALL-CARDINAL/LITTLE PEACOCK GATHERING will be going on anytime after 5pm on Main Street of Fayette at the Opera House and the  "PrimeTime"/"DownTown Lounge" and continue until closing.  The main time for socializing is generally from 5-10 pm. 
---NO RESERVATIONS are needed.  Dress is casual and socializing will also be casual.  NO FORMAL PROGRAM IS PLANNED.  Classes can still group up if they desire or plan other weekend activities, or have their own program in a more formal setting for dinner and then come down to the All-Cardinal gathering.
---Food and drink can be ordered on an individual basis. The "PrimeTime" is a no smoking section serving "from scratch" pizzas, a variety of sandwiches, appetizers, tacos,  plus soft drinks, pitchers of beer, Margaritas, Daiquiris. The adjoining "Downtown Lounge," right next door is a Sport's Bar with TV's, and  is also run by Tim ('78) and Nancy Wulfekulhe, and has a quick food menu plus serves mixed drinks and bottled beer.   Tim and Nancy do a great job hosting the All-Card.  The Opera House will be a gathering point for an evening meal and activities.
