Saying Goodbye to Xircom

Laughlin River Run 4-Wheeling Paintball Xircom

May 29, 2003 - the Gathering
. . . a celebration with the Clan

Well . . . it looks like the 2300 building will become a distant memory.  Rumor has it that the lights will go out in about a week.  I have to say that it gives me pause as I reflect on the memories and a 12 year association with some of the best, the brightest and most energetic group of individuals that I have had the pleasure to work with . . . the heart and soul of Xircom was it's employees.

It did not always go right, we made our share of mistakes and we had more than a few disagreements, but through it all . . . the bonds and the friendships remain.  So, who gets the credit for this very unique environment and it's culture . . . you have to admit that it  starts with the founders.  They attracted and recruited like minded employees and together slowly developed the culture that we all came to enjoy and sometimes took for granted.  It was a great run . . .

Estimates put the attendance at between 100 and 125.  Arrivals began at about 4:00pm and it wound down around 10:30pm.  We had the patio, the parking lot, back dining room and the bar occupied.  It was a good turn out.  For those that could not make it . . . or did not want to make it, you can scan the pictures.

Hope to see you all at the next Gathering . . . enjoy the pictures.  If I omitted a name or you see an error, my apologies.  Just let me know and I will fix it . . .
