While Serb Fest Reunion 2005 may not quite have been the reunion we were expecting... it was no doubt another strong showing of the Serb regulars. The only real dissapointment was the cancelation of the attendance of Mr. & Mrs. Z at the 11th hour. And while Cika Bora may have been a bit more reserved than in years past, Cika Daca really stepped up and kept us all wildly entertained.

As for the rest of us, it was yet another year of strong growth and evolution. As we all know, we took an obvious step towards carrying on the all important tradition of TR being a true family affair. Being 12 strong, of course, yeilded another record number 850 cevapcici accompanied by 29 pounds of tomatos. Other incredible addtions to the legend of TR included the initiation of the Serbian Flag which will now fly proudly each year at TR, representing not only the heritage of the Serbs, but the great history of Serb Fest & TR. Also, we saw the initiation of the annual "Golden Cevapcici Award" which will no doubt become the most covetted of the awards given out each year at TR.

Of course, the greatest changes this year was the highly anticipated early arrival on Friday afternoon. The great success of this endeavor will no doubt make this the standard for future TR's. The only downfall to our early arrival was that it forced Chuckles & Rishi to arrive with the girls late Saturday afternoon and therefore missed the hike and the annual wife beater photo. Nonetheless though, despite the uncertainties by the time we all came together, TR 05 was destined to yet again live up to the anticipation.

A genuine tribute to OLAF. Still, nobody knows what in the h*ll OLAF was thinking when he posed for the photo that inspired this moment.
