COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – On April 25th and 26th, 2014 at the historic Broadmoor in Colorado Springs several hundred Law Club members from many generations gathered to celebrate the Law Club Centennial, with a former-chair’s dinner and sing-along, three separate complete Law Club shows from different Law Club eras, and an extra special 100th annual dinner meeting.
On the evening of Friday, April 25th the former Law Club Presidents and families and other members met for dinner and songs.

The Club subsidized rooms at the Broadmoor for 80 members and their families. On Saturday, April 26th, Law Club memorabilia were available for perusal upstairs in the original Broadmoor building in the morning and members met informally for breakfast, lunch, and much golf.
And then, at 1:30 pm, in the Broadmoor private movie theater Bob Kapelke and Cliff Eley directed the Oldtimers Show, songs and skits from the glory years of the Law Club, prior to 1988.
The audience was the chorus. At 3:30 pm began the Middle Ages Show, directed by Diana Terry, highlighting productions from 1988 to 2000.
We took a break at 5 pm and then met in the Golf Club at 6 for our 100th annual dinner meeting; as usual a raucous event with jokes, speeches, stories, the transfer of what little power the officers have, and dinner roll flinging. We went long enough that the 8 pm final show started pretty late.
The final Centennial show, directed by David Lichtenstein and Melissa McClure, began back in the movie theater at about 8:30 pm, and reprised dancing, singing, and what passes for Law Club acting from the modern period, 2000 to 2014. The Law Club stalwarts stayed right there till about 10:30 when we wrapped it all up.
