An updated reunion schedule has been posted under the SCHEDULE tab. For all of

you who are coming, see you in ten days... and for those of you who are not, we

promise a full report for your pleasure afterwards!

Take a look! We've been steadily adding photos of life at Apeiron to the PICTURES

section of this website and remind all of you, whether you're going to attend the

reunion in September or not, to dig into your archives and send in your photographs

too. Please email your images as .jpg files of no more than 2 megs each to Jim Koch

at jim@jimkochstudio.com and include captions for each image. If there are people

in the photos, please identify as many of them as you can.

We also invite you to check out the new website of Austrian artist-in-residence

Branko Lenart: www.brankolenart.com (along with lots of other interesting work)

is a segment on Millerton, New York that will give you new insight into how someone

from abroad saw our part of rural America (and our obsession with guns} in 1980.

It's not too late. Seven weeks to go, and we're just rolling on towards Labor Day now.

If you've been on the fence about coming for one reason or another, there are a

half-dozen rooms left in our reservation block at the reunion site, so there's still time

to sign on.

Travel tips for getting to the Reunion

By Air: Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is Western North Carolina's largest airport

and is serviced by AirTran, American Airlines, Continental, United, US Airways and

Delta. AVL has non–stop service to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth,

Detroit, Houston, Orlando, Tampa, Philadelphia, New York City and Newark.

Trip Advisor is a good site to monitor available prices; enter your itinerary and they

will provide weekly updates on fares: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Flights

AVL is 25 minutes south of Asheville proper, and about 45 minutes from the reunion

site (401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757). Instead of flying into AVL, it may be

worth considering flying into various alternate airports, and renting a car. The benefits:

1) It is often much cheaper to fly into other airports;

2) You will avoid any connection delays if you are not flying direct*;

3) You will not have to find transportation from AVL to the reunion site;

4) You will have a car for local exploring.

*Many flights to AVL go through Charlotte, and can involve long waits for


Other destination airports to check out for cheaper fares (if you are willing to rent

a car) include Charlotte NC, Knoxville TN and Greenville/Spartanburg SC.

The drive to the reunion site should take about:

45 minutes.................

from the Asheville airport (AVL)

1 hour 44 minutes......

from the Greenville/Spartanburg airport (GSP)

1 hour 55 minutes......

from the Charlotte airport (CLT)

2 hours 15 minutes....

from the Knoxville airport (TYS)

We will do our best to connect people who wish to share car rentals.

By car: Asheville is accessible via interstate highways I-26, I-40 and I-240; and

U.S. 19/23, 25, 25A, 70, & 74. You can get current road and weather conditions

information for the Asheville area from the North Carolina D.O.T. by calling 511

Communications:  Now that the web site is up, it will be the source of all news about

the reunion, including how to get there, who’s coming, etc. But you won’t have to keep

checking the site -- Whenever a new update is posted, we will send everyone in our

database a notice via e-mail.

Our next update will include travel tips, alternative airports, and ways to get to

Montreat from local transportation hubs. It may also include some images from a

roll of film of the first summer Peter just found...

We have signed the contract with Montreat Conference Center, and would appreciate

receiving 50% deposits by May 30th from those now planning to attend. Balances will

be due by July 15th. Although reunion registrations may be possible after that date, we

do have a “threshold” to cross in terms of number of attendees, so early payment will

be appreciated.

Remember that we are doing the room registration, so please do not call Montreat
