final score: students—a lot; faculty-alumni—a little
2009 reunion classes
it’s your year, 4s and 9s! Make plans to celebrate during the Buffalo Niagara Dental Meeting, Oct 21-23. this year’s reunion dinner dance will be held at the Hyatt regency Ballroom on Friday, Oct. 23. Join us for cocktails at 6:30 p.m., dinner at 7:30 p.m., and dancing into the small hours of the night.
On April 4, dental school faculty, alumni and students took to the ice to contest the hallowed Hanau Cup. When the pregame skate revealed that there were as many students on the ice as faculty and alumni, somebody had an inspiration: let’s have the faculty and alumni play the students. Bad idea. “the old gray mare just ain’t what she used to be.” the students toyed with their elder colleagues. Final score: students—a lot; faculty-alumni—a little. the only good idea was to rotate goalies, ian Walker (’00) and Ken lee’s (’89) son, Andy, so they could rest while they goaltended for the stu- dents. the faculty/alumni survived and had enough strength to join the students at a post-game party at the Steer for chicken wings, beer and pop. the UB Dental Alumni Association and Peter Atkinson of Dental Dynamics, a dental equipment repair company, sponsored the event. this year’s heroes were ted Jenkins, ’75; Jim Matteliano, ’80; Fred rodems, ’80; Bob Warner, ’81; John lucchese, ’84; ray Miller, ’85; Ken lee, ’89; Will Boyczuk, ’98; ian Walker, ’00; Brian Kritzman, ’05; Andy lee; Peter Atkinson; students travis ludy, ’12; Erin topley, ’09; Mike Nagai, ’10; Bryan May, ’09; ryan O’Malley, ’09; Carly topley, ’11; Eric vieth, ’10; and Kameron Schaberg, ’10; and visitors Brad Phillips and Duncan topley.
