We now have 501 people registered on the CCI Alumni pages. That's absolutely fantastic. It's been just over a month since we announced the website and the response has been incredible.
There's been a lull in the creation of new content on the site but we have more in store after the holiday season. In the new year the Photo Albums and the CCI History Page(s) will be expanded and there may be a few surprises in the works!
A big "thank you" to everyone for making this such a fun site!
To All of You CCI Grads, Rider Nation, Grey Cup Champs!!!

THE CHAB MORNING SHOW: L-R: LORI DEAN, DEB COWAN, CRAIG HEMINGWAY, DEIGN SALIDO
Well, it was another busy morning meeting with the media. First thing in the morning Deb Cowan ('71) and Deign Salido ('87) met with CHAB's morning hosts, Craig Hemingway and Lori Dean for a radio interview. Later in the morning, both Deb and Deign went back to CCI to meet with Moose Jaw Times Herald for a photo op and interview regarding the CCI 100 Reunion.

It was quite a hit Launching the CCI100 website at Central's parent teacher interview. It's amazing how many people have stayed in Moose Jaw. We were trying to capture the parents who attended Central (roughly those from grads '67 - '90). Another generation has passed on CCI's traditions and it shows from the parent-teacher interview. Some of the present students were even amazed that their parents were once "cool" teenagers!!!
We are doing an official launch over a two day period. Tomorro...
After writing yesterday that people were spreading the website address by word of mouth I should have twigged to the fact that many of these new people did not receive the November 1st information email. I should have also realized that many of those November 1st emails would have disappeared into the internet ether or may have been eaten by spam filters. Having said this I'd like to correct this oversight by giving some directions/instructions for the site.
Every night I sit down at the computer to update the pdf linked to the CCI Alumni home page and every night I am amazed at the number of new names that appear each day. News of the Reunion hasn't been in the paper or on the television. There haven't been any new announcements sent via email. It seems that people are being reached by word of mouth and the evidence can be found on this website. At the time of this entry there are 314 people registered on the CCI Alumni pages and the website has ha...
Some of you may have noticed that the CCI Alumni list does not sort properly when using "sort by Maiden Name". A fix for this problem is in the works and should yield results quite soon.
Speaking of sorting the list... we hope that everyone has found the link for the "sort by graduating year pdf"in the description area of the CCI Alumni home page. We've now made it easier to find your grad year by colour coding alternate years.
