ALL WEEKEND EVENTS

Pubs

On Friday night, there are two places where you can grab a drink and meet up with friends.  The cafeteria and the tennis courts will be turned into pubs starting at 8 PM.  The outdoor pub will be under a tent and will feature a DJ (Matt Evered who is an alumnus).  You are welcome to go to either location.  Both are sure to be a blast!

On Saturday, we’ll be right back under the tent starting at noon until 5 PM.  This day, we will feature open mic performances throughout the afternoon, hosted by radio DJ and alumnus Ryan Valdron from Classic Rock 98.1.  Catch some talented Bronco performances in between all the other Saturday activities, or simply hang out in the pub as long as you want.

If you are a talented Bronco who would love to perform during Saturday’s open mic pub, we would love to hear from you!  Please contact Melissa MacIntyre at M.MacIntyre@tvdsb.ca

Food Trucks

Bring your appetite and head to the back parking lot!  We are pleased to have partnered with some of London’s amazing food trucks -- Rosie’s Streetery, Bifana Boys, Goodah Gastrotruck, and The Donut Diva will be here.  They’ll be here Friday night from 5 PM- 1 AM and on Saturday from 12 – 5 PM. 

Decades Displays

You can’t go to a Reunion without visiting the Decade Rooms -- and we’ve made it very convenient for you.  All the decades displays will be in the Library from 5 – 10 PM on Friday and from 9 AM – 4:30 PM on Saturday.  Here you’ll find old yearbooks, photos, plaques, trophies, uniforms, and other really cool memorabilia.  Be sure to check it out!

SATURDAY SPORTS

 9- Hole Golf Tournament (8:00 AM – 12:00 PM)

Bring your clubs to the reunion and participate in a Golf tournament played at Hickory Ridge Golf Course. There will be limited registration as tee-off times will be from 8 – 10 AM only.
