This column comes from Hong Kong, where I relocated in January with my husband, Tom, and our boys. Jed, 11, Ty, 9, and Luke, 6, are enjoying the city lights and mild weather almost as much as I am. * Despite limited snow in Vermont, John Cully hosted a ski weekend with David Beatus, Mark Burns, and David Higgins. John says, “Hard to believe we’re all fitter and better looking than ever!” John, I know what you mean—it just gets better after 40, doesn’t it? John is still building custom bike frames and working as a marketing consultant focused on marketing communications and branding. His daughter turns 11 this year and, though he is selling her hard on Colby, she wants to know how the Quidditch team is doing before making any decisions. * Anne Griffin has enjoyed a snowy winter in Bulgaria, skiing every chance she got at Bansko Ski Resort. Her pottery export business, Bulgarian Pottery and Gifts, just fulfilled its first orders for Home Goods, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls. * Tyler Rohrer is still running a successful software company—Liquidware Labs—with offices in Atlanta and Chicago, but he chose to remain in York, Maine, after selling the last venture to Vmware in Palo Alto, Calif. Tyler’s wife and three kids, Emma, Jack, and Molly, recently welcomed a German shorthaired pointer puppy named Cooper. If you’re in Maine this July, you can watch Tyler compete in the New England Forest Rally (www.rally-america.com). Tyler promises it’s “always fun to watch grown men play with cars in the Maine woods!” * Menlo Park, Calif., is where you’ll find Charles Beeler, wife Jenny, and kids Jane, 8, Mary, 6, and Charlie, almost 2. For the past 12 years Charles was a general partner at El Dorado Ventures, a venture capital firm focused on early-stage investments in technology companies. He’s now spinning off with a couple of partners to start a new firm. Charles says he has enjoyed living in California for 13 years, but as a Midwesterner finds it strange to think that his kids are from California. “It still makes me think back to being a little kid, when everyone in California seemed a bit strange (remember the Valley Girls phenomenon?)” Charles keeps in touch with Chris Gieszl, Matt Scott-Hansen, and Mike Dreeben, and he recently bumped into Don Bindler crossing the street in Manhattan. * Lael Stanczak hails from Singapore, where she and her family are in their sixth school year and loving it. She stays busy with freelance writing, numerous volunteer opportunities, and kids Teaguen, 15, Ainsley, 13, and Keely, 11. Lael keeps in touch with Sarah Burditt McDougal, who loves life in Oregon, and via Facebook with Isabelle Gagnon Johnson, Mark Radcliffe, Joe McKenna, and Dave O’Shea and Carolyn Hart ’94, where topics range from Trader Joe’s to Dave’s Grizzly Adams beard. Lael says, “I am really looking forward to finally attending a reunion next year (I will make it happen somehow) and seeing everybody. Maybe after losing 30 pounds first.” * Hilary Gehman and husband Matt Smith welcomed Luke Dylan Smith Sept. 3. Hilary writes that she and Matt are both rowing coaches at Cornell and love living in Ithaca, N.Y. She is getting excited for our reunion … and you should, too! * If you received the e-mail with the slightly creepy picture of a white mule and a birthday cake, you know Colby turns 199 this year—which means Colby’s bicentennial coincides with a much more notable event: our 20th reunion! Start clearing your calendars now, and shoot an e-mail to Emiko Boezeman ’11 at the Colby Fund (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re willing to help out.
