Uh... Idk... 100 a year seems like too many. Yearly reunions, however, are normal in a lot of families....

once a year sounds reasonable to me

we have one every year-but the odd years is pop's family even years is Mom (my grandmother's)'s family.

I love it because then i get to see my great aunts and uncles I wouldnt normally get to see.

Depends on the family.  I have some family members I've not seen for over 20 years, and I'm still good with it.  I have other family members that I haven't seen since last month, and I really miss them. ;) 

I have friends who go to the annual family reunion every year, and have since they were young and their parents took them, the size of the family and reunion just keeps growing, and the family comes from 'all over' as some even live outside the US now. 

Are these reunions somehow 'required attendance' reunions?  What happens if someone doesn't attend?

We get together at least once a year everybody on my moms side but a lot of us that live close to our camp will see each other every couple of weeks... I love my family I like spending time with them. Why?

We have one with just our local family every year around Easter and then we have a huge one where family travel from all over every 2 years. We just had one a few weeks ago with a couple hundred people.
