On Wednesday, November 6, Jay Seiden rounded up some Bay Area Titans to welcome an alumnus who was travelling to San Francisco for business. This intergenerational group of Titans was connected by their experiences on the Futako campus and the similarity in class composition and personalities that permeated each graduating year. Reunions at Ozumo in SF have become an annual tradition; looking forward to future bi-annual meet-ups!
A great group gathering to catch up, staying in touch and to compete, as Titans always love to do. The Cup was won by Chris Iki, Class of 1985.
Reunion, school visit, and lots of catching up.
The European chapter of SMAA held a reunion dinner in London on Sept. 3. The first dinner since former co-leader Jun Otake returned to Tokyo was hosted by the three co-leaders: Sarwar Bhuiyan (Class of 1999), Josef Budde (Class of 2012) and Carsten ten Brink (Class of 1982).
