This is to let the class know that Libby Gale Macklin won a gold medal at the national finals of the Indian Wells pickleball tournament this past weekend. She and her playing partner won the mixed doubles championship in the 70-74 age group. I would argue that this is the crowning athletic achievement of our class male or female. Pickleball is easy to learn, but very difficult to play at such a high level. Congratulations to Libby!

Thank you for posting about Libby Gale. I am trying my best to learn this sport. It's not easy. Glad you had a good experience at CHS Claremont ia a good place to be from and most of us came to California from somewhere else.

Really, a shocker to me; I see I felt that Weldon was forever!  Sweet smile, great laugh and sense of humor, he was a huge slice of our Wolfpack pie!  So glad he was with daughter and family.  RIP Weldon, I still love that song you recommended years ago, "Urgent."  I'm sure you are still laughing ....Susan Trear

We have qualified for the 2019 Tennessee Senior Olympics in Men's doubles 75-79. Don't ask how.
Opponents still alive.

I am ready to make a pickleball challenge. Anywhere outside or inside. Two games single or double with sudden death if necessary. You know who! Titanium knees great except airport security.

I'm afraid Libby would whip me worse than those youngsters twenty years younger. Pickleball!

First pickleball tournament results were not good but I learned much. I wish I could find my own age group to compete with. No fun to get whipped by someone twenty years younger.

Howard and I drove to Yosemite shortly after our graduation in 1961, as I was trying to get a summer job up there.  I was told to "come back next year" so we drove all night back to SoCal.  Howard was great company and, along the way, taught me how to accelerate more smoothly (yes, stick shift) and, with kindness, how to come to a stop correctly without jerking ("just release the brake a little bit as you gently come to a stop"). We remained friends and occasionally in touch over the years. Good to hear his voice and talk a bit on the phone at the most recent '61 lunch at Eureka in Claremont. RIP Howie.

Mia was also an author! Her 1983 book entitled "Sushi", published by Headlands Press, was well-received over the decades. One reviewer: "A great, compact book that covers history, etiquette and traditions of sushi eating and is recommended to any enthusiast wanting a quick, entertaining lesson on sushi".  Another review: "First book in English on sushi. Excellent photos." A woman of many talents.
