Reunion Planning Post #16

Booze & Attire

Two important topics we want to address with respect and good judgment!

We feel at our age, we all deserve flexibility and comfort, so there will be no specific Dress Code!

For the 7 May, Friday afternoon Hangar Social/Crew Meetings, "casual attire" is definitely in order. There will be an open bar (no charge) for light & regular beer, red and white wine, soft drinks, tea and water (no hard liquor) with hors d'oeuvres from 1600 to 1900. Remember the Museum is open for visits from 0900 to 1600, and access to our C-133 will be available throughout. And you're on your own for dinner.

For the 8 May, Saturday Banquet @ Dover Downs Hotel, suggested attire is "dressy casual" or "business casual." Coat and tie, if you like; but don't feel it's necessary if you're over that phase of your life!! For what it's worth, I'm bringing a blue blazer and no tie, and my wife's thinking of "nice slacks with a pretty blouse & evening jacket."

Our Planning Committee is trying to arrange for a "hospitality suite" @ the Dover Downs Hotel so you can start gathering as early as 1300 on Saturday, with any leftover beer, wine and soft drinks from the Friday Social. Then about 1730, a real Cash Bar (with hard liquor) will open for cocktails before the Sit-down Dinner @ 1830.

Any questions, suggestions, complaints so far????? Stay tuned! More information to follow...
