Parking: It will be limited. Please carpool when possible. There maybe some parking available at neighbor's cabins. Remember, do not block the road, driveways or other vehicles, unless you have their permission.

Swimming: Lou says 120 ft. of beach, sand and water will be provided. (Isn't that nice.) Bring your suits, beach towels, beach chairs, and life jackets it needed. Changing rooms are available. Life jackets are required for anyone under six, or who can't swim. Each family will be responsible for their own kids.

Boating: There will not be any water skiing from our house because of the holiday lake traffic and the large crowd that will be at our beach. We will have booze cruises as time allows.

Pictures: Bring your cameras! This only happens every ten years. A group picture will be taken around 4:30. Please help by having everyone available around that time. Show your Riedmann pride and wear your reunion t-shirt!

Games: Still need volunteers...

Fireworks: For safety reasons, daytime and nighttime fireworks will be allowed up on the dike only. Each family will be responsible for their own. It is recommended that one pyromaniac, er, I meant member of each family be in charge and they work with the other families to prevent accidents. When buying fireworks, think size, not quantity for viewing pleasure. Night fireworks will start at dark...after 9:00?

Babies: Air conditioned spare rooms are available for naps. Bring a sign for posting on the door.

Reunion shirts, goody bags, etc.:They will be distributed as you arrive. Watch for Renie and Sharon.
