The Cal Alumni had Â a reunion banquet prior to the meet. Team members were celebrating an 89 Â winning streak over nine seasons. Parents and friends helped to celebrate the accomplishments of these teams.

Present for the evening was Art Shurlock, Â 1964 Olympic team, Champion of Â USA, Â winner of numerous national titles,, head coach of UCLA, Â won two NCAA team titles, Three of his gymnasts were on 1984 Gold medal winning team.. Â
Many fine gymnasts were present for the first time in many years and it was a grand reunion for many gymnasts that competed in the old Harmon Gymnasium. Also present was Jim Fairchild two time NCAA Champion on Pommel Horse and Paul Davis-two time NCAA Champion on Rope Climb and co-holder of 20 foot climb of 2.8 secs. Â
Also present were parents who I consider to be Â the life blood of Gymnastics. Â I thank them for their generous support of time and energy of their sons. Â The food was fine and everyone celebrated seeing teammates for the first time in many decades. Â Many individuals traveled long distances to attend the banquet. David Demany brought a fine slide display for the evening.
