Most of the 109 relatives were Californians, but some came from as far as Georgia and Missouri. The family, which has gath- ered every five years, chooses Quincy because it is attractive to all of its members. According to Tom King of Fresno, who stayed in a local hotel, they like it because, "Not only is Quincy beautiful, but there are hookups for the RV people, a,place for tents for the campers, a central gathering place and a stage for our family's talent show." His nephew, Tim Motta of Castro Valley, stayed beyond the weekend because he had a flat tire and needed to have his fifth-wheel welded, "If we stayed too far from a town I'd be worried that I would not get the emergency services we might need," Motta said, "It was convenient to have the welding shop right next to Les Schwab, where I bought two new tires. And, the price was right for both jobs so I'm going home happy." The family chooses a president who creates a reunion committee to plan for the next gathering; volunteer Dolores King White of Sacramento plans to arrange the next reunion in only two years.

During the immediate transition period, while an agreement is being worked out, FRC's Chief Student Ser- vices Officer Lisa Kelly, Di- rector of Facilities Nick Boyd and current residence halls manager Mark Vollmer will manage the dorms operation. They will take all steps necessary to see that rooms are refurbished, grounds are maintained and students are able to sign residence con- tracts for the coming year. During the coming weeks the groups will meet to nego- tiate terms to have a long- term agreement by Septem- ber. In the meantime, the transition team is in place, and improvement projects have been initiated.
