"Comet Pride: 50 Years Strong"


Just wanted to let you know we are having our next meeting on Monday, August 6, 6:30 at Ferguson Brewing Co. We’ll talk about location for the 40th and hopefully confirm where we want to have it (St. Charles Convention Center or Old Hickory Country Club), and also talk about the night before the reunion, possibly having a “pub crawl” in downtown Ferguson.

Also, we will have our casual “get together” the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend at Wente’s place. I will be getting out an email blast in the next few weeks.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!



Hi all,

Just a reminder that we have a meeting on Monday, July 9 at Wente’s, 6:30 pm. If you can’t make it let me know please, just want to make sure there’s enough of us. Hopefully we can come up with a decision on where to have the 40th, and also talk to Terry about the casual get together on Thanksgiving weekend.

Stay cool and see you Monday!




Just wanted to pass along information about Spazio’s.

We are suppose to meet next Monday, July 9 at Spazio’s but they are under renovation – they got hit bad by the storm back at the end of April so they are closed for a few more months. Let’s plan on meeting at Wente’s if everyone is okay with that. If you have another suggestion for a place to meet please let us know and we can switch if it works out better for folks. Otherwise, Wente’s on Monday, July 9 at 6:30 pm.

Thanks all,



Monday, June 4, 2012 Finally have been home long enough to put some notes together from the last meeting at Sports Cafe…the fact that my memory is HORRIBLE I hope I have things right!

Present: Tom Dew, Bob Haddenhorst, Connie Leonard, Joe Mooney, Bruce Rudroff, Cheri Schuler-Faust, Beth Schweitzer, Betsy Stevens, Andy Thurmond

Fall “Get Together”

We discussed that, after a few suggestions from the committee and several comments from alumni, that we hold the casual Fall “Get Together” at Wente’s during the Thanksgiving Holiday. It was decided to have it on the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 23rd. Joe will call Terry to confirm this date. When Connie hears from Joe that Terry is okay with the date she will send out an email blast to all ’72-’74 alumni with the flyer. We are hoping that this will bring in more out of town alumni that are in for the holidays.

40th Reunion

Still looking at the dates of Sept. 28 or Oct. 5 2013 for the reunion…

We made the decision to not have the reunion at Sports Café. Previously we had talked about someplace nicer than the Machinists Hall and we felt that Sports was really not any nicer. It was good that we met there and the committee members that were there could make the decision.

Andy brought information on the St. Charles Convention Center where he has attended annual seminars. He brought prices and Joe will review to compare them to previous reunion site costs. Also, the center is connected to an Embassy Suites which would be great for those not wanting to drive after the event.

Spazio’s Westport was another venue suggested. Connie will call and get information/prices for this location.

I’m not sure if we are still interested in information on Sybergs? (Okay, I’ve waited too long to type up these notes and I just can’t remember…not so good at writing everything down at the meetings!) I think Joe was going to check into Sybergs?

Cheri mentioned Oliva on the Hill and another place in the city. The committee seemed to agree that we should have it somewhere more centrally located for our alumni. We are still considering places, so Cheri if you want to bring cost information with you to the next meeting please do. I think there was discussion of the high costs of the two places in the city?

I encourage the committee to continue thinking about venues for the reunion, nothing has been decided yet, but we do need to make a decision in the next couple of months so we can secure a place. Weddings seem to be very popular these days in Sept. and Oct.

We discussed the idea of having a band at the reunion and Bob was going to look into Mark Klose’s band and get back to us. Update: Bob has checked with Mark Klose and is going to look into Charles Glenn and Kevin Raucher. He is sending emails out so please see his emails regarding this.

Beth has volunteered to do the nametags for the reunion.

If there is anything I left out or is not correct, please just send a follow up to all. Thanks!

The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 9 at Spazio’s Westport at 6:30 pm. (I will try and remember to reserve a spot for us this time!)

Have a great weekend all!



Hi All,

Fall 2011 Get Together!

This Saturday, November 5, 2011
Wente’s Open Wheel Restaurant & Saloon
18000 Chesterfield Airport Road
Chesterfield, Missouri

Have fun this Saturday! Drive safely!

Hi all,

We had a good meeting Tuesday night (April 25, 2011) at Wente’s. There were only 7 of us there but we made some executive decisions J. We are going to have a fall alumni get together (’72, ’73, ’74 alumni) on Saturday, November 5th. Terry was there and he said that was a good date for him. We’re hoping it’s cooler having it at this time of the year (last year it was really hot in and outside of the bar!).

Our next meeting will be Monday, May 23, 7:00 at Wente’s so mark your calendars. We don’t have a lot to do, but we need to talk about ways to contact alumni of our class and the other classes. Plus, we always have a good time when we get together for these meetings, so it’s a good excuse.

I will be sending out a Save the Date email with the November date to all those that I have email addresses. If you have email addresses for people that don’t show up “found” on our website, PLEASE get their information to me.

Big thanks to Terry Wente who gave us a VERY generous donation to the ’73 Alumni Committee to help with our 40th class reunion!!! This check was a portion of the proceeds from last July’s get together. Thanks also to Jeff Trindle (’73 alumni) who added a generous donation to Terry’s total! If you are ever in Chesterfield Valley make sure to stop in Terry’s place for some food and drink.

So, mark your calendar for Saturday, November 5 – see you then!

March 22, 2010 meeting - notes

Hi All,

Well, we met at Wente’s last night and had a great meeting.  There were 10 of us (including Terry) to talk about what we want to do this summer. 

The get together date is Saturday, July 24, 5:30pm - ?., at Wente’s Open Wheel Restaurant & Saloon, 18000 Chesterfield Airport Road, Chesterfield, MO.  Terry will be ready for us…he’s going to call Joe to let him know what kind of deal he can give us (happy hour prices?).   Everyone will be on their own, paying for their own food/drinks (like last year).

We also decided to invite alumni from the class of ’72 and ’74 to the reunion.  Just by word of mouth, and on the website.  I don’t think there will be very many that come from the other classes (we don’t think they even have reunions anymore), but we hear from people of other classes so thought it would be nice.  Obviously, we want to get as many folks as we can from our class, so we will put it on the website, and I will send out a broadcast email (in the next few weeks) to all the email addresses I have on our “master” list, and follow up with a reminder when it gets close to the event.  Terry said his place could handle everyone.  He has an area outside that is covered by a tent, if we would need to use that for overflow, or if it is just a nice evening and people want to be outside.

So…now that we have a date let’s get the word out.  Any ideas on other ways to reach our alumni, let us all know.

NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING:  We scheduled another meeting for Monday evening, May 17 at Wente’s…we really don’t have much to plan, but we always have a good time when we get together so we might as well go over everything at that point, and enjoy the evening!



PS – To those who were there last night – I didn’t write a lot of notes, so if I missed something just “reply to all” and let everyone know about it.  Thanks!

McCluer Class of 1973.
