SunDC Sunset Party at Clyde's in Tysons Corner, VA

On Thursday the 27th, 2009, we held a SunDC Sunset Party for former (and some current) Sun Microsystems employees. We were hoping to get 20 to 30 to show up since it was a Thursday, it was a prime vacation week and it was simply a get together. This was not Sun sponsored and Sun did not pay for anything. We were shocked and thrilled to have over 300 Sun employees (past and some current) show up.

Below was the invitation:

"It ain't over 'til its over"! And Sun's game is definitely not over! But as the ninth inning closes in, lets take the opportunity to celebrate 27 years of Sun! You are cordially invited to the SunDC Sunset party! Do you remember the days of Friday beer busts, June 30 New Year's Eve parties, $12M DISTRICT goals, the $1B company-wide celebration? Come on, dig out your oldest Sun Ts, dust off that Sun paraphanalia, and come join your fellow Sun and Sun Alumni for one last chance to Kick Butt and Have Fun!!!!

As you can see this invitation list is quite long! Special thanks to Kathleen Fox, Dave Edstrom, Donna Walker and Bob Ebling for helping to assemble it. Hard as we tried, though, there are names missing! So please pass the word!!

Finally, Dave Edstrom has created a DC Sun Alumni group on Yahoo. Please take a minute to join, whether you can attend the party or not:

Group Name: SunDC-Alumni

Look forward to seeing everyone there!

Crenshaw, Rebling, Kathleen, Dave and Donna

*Disclaimer: This is NOT a Sun sponsored event. Sun Microsystems is not liable for any expenses or other claims resulting from attendance.

It was the most fun I have had in a long time. I have never seen so many people smiling, laughing, hugging and kissing in my life!

Every person that showed up said that Sun Microsystems was the best company that they ever worked for. Sun was a very special place to work and it was great to see so many long time friends in one great night.

We plan on doing it again next year......
