History The tradition began in the 1960's with the "Beer for Lunch Bunch", a group of technicians from Research in Plaza 3 just keeping their creative juices going.

Special Events

What events Picnics, backyard barbecues, wine tasting parties, golf tournaments, welcome back to the USA, whatever.  Any excuse will do.  On 21 April 2002, a small group of us got together at the Lagoon to say "Hi" to Esther Trauner (her last name was Kraus when she was at Scott).  She lived in Vienna at the time and was in the area for only a few days.  On 23 November 2002, several people went to a (free) wine tasting party at the Stargazers Vineyard in Coatesville PA (owned and operated by Scott Alumni John Weygandt and his wife Alice).  If any of these events become popular enough to do on a regular basis, then that event will have its own section on this website. 
Who picks the events You do.  If you are willing to sponsor an event, just let us know and we will announce it to everyone.  Sponsoring means making all necessary arrangements and reservations, and giving us all of the details:  what, where, when, how to get there, who pays for what.
