Please help spread the word ...

We are reaching out to businesses and individuals for financial help with our 2020 reunion. These funds would be used to defray some or all of our reunion expenses. We also need sponsors who can donate gift cards or underwrite the cost of cash giveaway door prizes. If there is enough support, we can print t-shirts, caps, and other fun and commemorative items. Click the FundRazr logo for details and to donate. If anyone needs an official letter requesting donations, I had one done professionally, I just need a name and address. See you in San Diego?

FUTURE REUNIONS

There are several things to be considered when planning our reunions: Should it be held on the West Coast, East Coast, or in the Midwest? What time of year and what weather can we expect at the selected location? How much money will the crew pay for travel, hotel, and food? Will the crew pre-pay to cover deposits required? How many will show?

The reunion information found here is only for reunions organized by me; there may be other reunions I'm not aware of. Are you planning a ship reunion? Want that information listed here? Please EMail me the details.
