Sara Ely Hulse, sse@ cbsnews.com ■ It has been a busy winter for the Class of 1992. Lukas Kolff writes: “Greetings from London! The current situation in the UK with Brexit remains rather uncertain, but that is just politics and nobody knows what will happen. Charlie, 11, is going to senior school in September. He has been accepted at King’s Wimbledon College, one of the best London day schools, so we are very happy. Rose, 9, is in Year 4 at Thomas's Fulham and Louis, 4, is going to Reception in September.” Lukas’ corporate finance boutique, Bowline Capital Partners, just celebrated its 10th anniversary and is doing well. The firm remains focused on small-to-medium size private equity and private debt transactions, mainly in Europe, the UK and the Middle East. Jo joined a boutique executive search firm as a partner and focuses on the consumer & luxury retail market. “There is never a dull moment in the Kolff household, but we love the fun chaos,” he wrote. ■ Will Forbes checked in to say that he recently attended the Tartan Day Celebration in Philadelphia with his kids, Sarah, now 11, and Tyler, now 9. It was run by the St. Andrew's Society of Philadelphia. Also present were two First City Troopers, formally known as the First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry. Forbes is currently on the nonactive roll having been on the active roll from 1996-2000. FTPCC is the oldest active military unit (founded in 1774) and the most decorated unit in the United States Military ■ Drayton Virkler wrote to report that all is going well for the Virkler family in Durham, North Carolina. Laura and Drayton's oldest child, Ella, is a junior in high school, which means that the family is in the throes of finding her the right college. It seems after growing up in North Carolina and living in Singapore for two years, Ella has decided she wants to be cold; so, her current list of schools is heavily weighted towards the Northeast. As a result, Drayton is looking forward to spending more time in

New England and hopefully catching up with classmates! ■ Christian Whiton has been keeping up with SG alums as I am sure people have seen him appear on Fox News alongside fellow SG alum Tucker Carlson ’87 for his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” But, in exciting personal news, Christian got married to Marco McClees in March. The two, who had been dating for 15 years, tied the knot on the Big Island of Hawaii. Some of you already know Marco from our last reunion. They both moved from Washington to Denver in January, although Christian still works for the same lobbying and public relations firm and is frequently back in D.C. ■ Sarah Terry has been seeing some SG alums. She was in Nantucket racing in the Opera House Regatta with her brother, Jesse, and two others. It was a crazy race with waves and 40-knot wind — the very weather making sailing fun — but they won. SG alum Winkie Mleczko van Ogtrop ’91 was also there. ■ Last August also marked an amazing feat for Bret Barasch, who swam across the Long Island Sound in 10 hours and 37 minutes – 15.5 miles from Port Jefferson, New York, to Bridgeport, Connecticut. He dedicated his swim to his good friend Rob Lichtenstein and so he could raise money for St Vincent’s Medical Center in their quest to support cancer patients. ■ My amazing accomplishment – well Sara Ely Hulse is just happy to report
that she survived her first trip to Disney World with her husband and 5-year-old twins, Kathryn and Avery. Much to Alex’s chagrin there was much more princess action then rides, but we all had a great time. It certainly was nice to get out of the cold New York weather and enjoy some Florida sunshine. Work has been exciting, as Sara’s boss at “48 Hours,” Susan Zirinsky, became the first female president of CBS News. It will be interesting to see how the changes evolve and what the future looks like.
