Azusa Alumni
Weekend in Las Vegas
2011

Details to follow soon...

This is an informal adults only yearly event. It has proved to be a blast each year, click the photo albums for photos and stories. (there are many references to previous trips on this page) Never been to one of our Vegas trips? All are welcome, check out the photo albums of past trips.


EACH SPRING, the tulips blossom, the birds, bees and butterflies soar in the fresh air, and a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love...

HOWEVER, if you graduated from Azusa High School your thoughts turn to tumblin' dice on the craps tables, the loud music of one armed bandits, winning hands of 21, tall drinks in souvenir goblets, all you can eat buffets, And the men become eager to bet a bundle at the tables and take home their willing women dressed to the nines..

OH, SORRY, THOSE MEN AND WOMEN ARE US.....THE AZUSA ALUMNI!!
We aren't sure if this bizarre form of migration occurs because so many of us live in areas where the WINTERS are harsh and cruel or if it's some weird bonding ritual passed down in our genes from residency in Azusa...

But the Azusa Alumni who have met and bonded on this web site just feel compelled to meet and mingle in Las Vegas in the Spring.

Define weird We all have the same common background and some of us even knew each other as kids but driving or flying hundreds of miles to spend a weekend in sin city with people you met on the internet may seem weird to some. But after getting there it has proven to be a blast 2 years in a row and it seems as if we have known each other all of our lives. If you are thinking of joining us next year please do, you will not regret it.


20 Clues We Should Call It A Night
1. We have absolutely no idea where our Crown Royal bag is.
2. We believe that dancing with our arms overhead and wiggling our butt while yelling WOO-HOO is truly the sexiest dance move around.
<Rox, Dixie, & Caryn, I think this joke is implying that this move is not very attractive. What's up with that???.~ Julie>
3. We spend more time driving in circles around the casinos than in the casinos.

<Note to self: next time buy a squirrel>

4. We start taking photographs of our cocktails.
<I can't taste the rum, can you?>
5. We drop our 10:00 p.m. Porterhouse on the floor (which we are eating even though we are not the least bit hungry), pick it up and carry on eating it because we are afraid the waitress will kick our ass.
6. We start crying and telling everyone we see that we love them sooooo much.
7. There are less than three hours before we're due to hit the road for home.
8. We spot a herd of migrating furniture on I-15. COUCH!
9. We talk the security guard into letting us swim with the sharks.
10 . The men's urge to wiggle or pick their butts in front of hordes of total strangers becomes strangely overwhelming.
<However no one is stranger than us>
11. Our eyes just don't seem to want to stay open on their own so we keep them half closed and think it looks exotically sexy.
12. We've taken up second hand smoking and become really good at it.
13. We yell at the bartender, who (we think) cheated us by giving us just lemonade, but that's just because we can no longer taste the rum.
14. We think we are in bed, but our pillow feels strangely like the elevator floor.
<fumble!> 
15. The husbands take pictures of their wives boobs to post on the internet.
16. We fail to notice that the toilet lid's down when we sit on it.
17. Our hugs begin to resemble wrestling take-down moves.
18. We are tired so we just sit on the floor (wherever we happen to be standing) and take a quick nap.
19. We give up at spending our dimes and drop them in a homeless man's cup so he can deal with it.
20. We take our shoes off because we believe it's their fault that we are having problems walking straight.
