50th Anniversary Reunion

Sept 8-14, 2011 in Leysin, Switzerland

All Vagabonders are invited to join us in Leysin for this reunion to help create some more memories of the village and the place that changed so many lives and brought us so many lasting friendships.Carol Rankin and Dave and Johanne Smithwill be here to greet you.The first night, Sept 8th we plan to have a welcoming dinner at La Fromagerie in the lower village at 7 p.m. Come at 6.30 to chat with friends if you wish.Information as to accommodation possibilities are as follows:Leysin hotels and B&Bs listed for Leysin can be found here http://www.leysin.ch/en/accommodation/.

Please also check out 2 B&Bs in particular: see http://www.ermina.ch and http://www.lescabris.ch – the most reasonable at CHf 50.- per person, per night, very Vag like, but meant for groups so all beds are singles beds (no bunks) with 1,2,3,4,5, in a room and toilets and showers on three floors. Rooms can be rented as doubles but no double beds.

Au Bel Air hotel is totally adequate near the telecabines with doubles or group rooms and the larger hotels in town are definitely more expensive.

If you are able to join us click on the register now button on the right.

It is so important that you all pass the word on to those for whom we do not have any direct contact.

We are looking forward to seeing our old friends as well as making many new ones.

This is a huge undertaking but do know that you are all part of what is now known as “The Legend of Club Vagabond“.

I am so looking forward to this. There will be enough snow when I get back home.

Anyone looking for roomates for the reunion for the sake of economy. Filling a 5 bed room may be a cheap option.

We would have lived to be there but have booked 2 weeks in Port Douglas late Sept so will not be able to attend. We did go back to Leysin Jan 2009 for our 20th Wedding Anniversary & took our two teenage boys – it was awesome to be back there & will be again one day. Have a great time everyone.

Thanks so much to all the organizers and townspeople who put a great amount of effort into it.
It was wonderful to meet up with “old” faces from 1965/66 and to make new friends who were at The Vag during the 70’s and 80’s
