Reunion Planning Post #5

Thank you for the great response to our request for "Registration" for our May, 2010, Reunion. We've acknowledged responses from 90 of you......84 Yes......6 No. And you've told us to expect 140 people at the Friday "Hangar Social," and 146 at the Saturday Banquet. That's an awesome start!!

We don't plan to publish an "expected attendee's" list, but some of you are interested in who's planning to attend. If you have individual names of your colleagues that you'd like to know about, let me know, and I can tell you if we've heard from them.

Below is a letter to all of you from our Planning Committee Chair, Sandy Sandstrom. It's all about "group rate" accommodations at Dover Downs where we'll have the Banquet. If you want to stay there, you need to confirm reservations ASAP, as they're asking for room guarantees. Let me know if you have questions about accommodations. Separately, I'll also be publishing a list of other local accommodations, but we're not arranging other "group rates." Can't do them all.

Letter from Sandy Sandstrom, Planning Committee Chair:

Here is what we have come up with so far in regards to accommodations.

The hotel rates for Dover Downs are as follows:

Friday $159.00

Sat. $169.00

Sun. $ 125.00

For those that would prefer to stay at Dover Downs, they should call (800) 711-5882 and make their own reservations. Be sure to inform the reservationist that this is for the C-133 event. As an aside, we have 20 rooms already blocked off and we could have more if the crew wants them...but individuals need to make their own guarantee. For those that do stay at Dover Downs, they never have to leave the building. There is a plethora of activities to do, to include several restaurants and of course, the gambling (scan their website below).

Click on the red link for the Dover Downs website, and the guys could use e-mail to reserve the rooms.

That about covers it. I know you will have questions, so we're standing by to try and get those answered.
