"The gathering was all about the people. It was a joyous 'time warp.' There were several people I had not seen in 15-plus years. And, I was so amazed how quickly we could enter into banter with the same ol' feel and energy. It was as if the time gap between encounters had only been a week."
—Gary Coffrin, commenting on last Friday's Specialized ex-employees reunion held at San Jose's Dive Bar. Coffrin served as Specialized's director of purchasing & logistics from early 1985 until the end of 1990.
