Welcome Wildcats!


Well that’s just great. You found us.

Now we’ll have to start working again. That work part never entered into our thoughts when we started the BWC. Originally we were just gonna send out a few invitations, count on word-of-mouth to let people know and kick back until Homecoming and then drink some beer and BS with everyone. Somewhere along the way things got out of hand.

So we host this crazy, two-day Homecoming extravaganza that includes a golf tournament, tailgate party and casino party. There’s close to 200 showing up from our era (1964-1974) alone. Then the college got wind of all of this (I think that’s Hayden’s fault), asked us to join forces with them and the numbers doubled (at least for the tailgater).

We even have a planning committee. Who would have believed that? Most of us don’t remember planning for anything when we were at Linfield other than a few keggers and figuring out how to get Jans to buy us a pizza. Not sure we even planned to graduate, although I’m pretty sure we all did at some point in time.

And here we have this brand new web presence. Reminder: That’s where you are now. This new site gives us more flexibility and immediate control so we can say nasty things about people in a more much timely manner.

We would like to acknowledge the efforts of Wildcat Rusty Rae, Class of 1970 or thereabouts, who has been a great help in getting this set up. Also thanks to Kasia Stahancyk (Class of 1974), who managed our old site from afar for so many years. Despite having to communicate with us long distance (which I’m sure she preferred) she did a great job.

The plan (that word again) is that you will be able to find 99 percent of the information you need to attend our now famous (perhaps infamous) weekend of events. Check the menus (sorry Miyasaka you can’t order food) and see what’s going on. By the way, when you find out please let us know because we really don’t have a clue; we just make it up as we go.

Anywho, welcome to the site. Browse around, check out the pictures old and new, see who’s invited and who regularly shows up, peruse the events and how you can get involved, find out that some of the guys who put this together really do put their hearts into it – for which the rest of us are eternally grateful – and find out what we’re all about. And when you do let us know.

Enjoy and hope to see you at this year’s events, Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
