Tandem Reunion, Texas Style

By Diane Funkhouser

NonStop Insider


To honor the 50-year legacy of Tandem Computers, Jimmy Treybig has been involved in planning a Texas-sized Reunion Celebration at the Dallas/Plano Marriott Legacy Town Center.  Anyone with a history working with or for Tandem is invited to attend.  The event kicks-off on Friday, September 6th at 4PM with a traditional Beer Bust, augmented by nachos, churros and margaritas.  In addition to socializing, eating and drinking, guests can visit the Tandem Museum to browse artifacts from the company’s rich history.

The evening’s activities will include a variety of entertainment including a special feature by Paul Seaburn.  Some of you were lucky enough to work with Paul in the Houston or Cleveland office during his 10-year tenure with Tandem before he left to launch his career in comedy.  Paul’s impressive resume includes a mind-boggling array of varied publications, including a decade as a contributing monolog writer for Jay Leno on The Tonight Show.  His unique blend of Tandem knowledge and humor will surely be insightful and entertaining.

Guests may consider spending the night or weekend at the host hotel.  Located in The Shops of Legacy, there will be plenty of dining and entertainment options within walking distance.  Since “the more the merrier” certainly applies, gather your friends and plan to meet for a one-of-a-kind, Texas-themed 50-year Tandem celebration.
