We are planning a joint Crewmembers Reunion/Work Party during the week of 1 through 5 April 2019. It will be held at the boat in North Little Rock, AR with the Riverside Wyndham acting as the host hotel. Their direct number is 501-371-9000. Please reference the USS Razorback Birthday to receive the special rate of $94. per night.
Our Co-VP Bob Opple has made a great effort to continue the Lobo for communicating with our members; it is now called Lobo, Jr. Call Bob directly to receive a copy through email or snailmail.
The next page has a day by day itinerary, but here are notes to help you get motivated to set the date on your calender - April 1 through 5, 2019.
There is also a Registration form that you can print out and send to our Treasurer, Wayne Hildebrand at P O Box 125, Vida, OR 97488.
Note 1. Crewmembers and their spouses are required to pay a registration fee of $25 each. Grandchildren and their spouses do not pay this fee.
Note 2. Work Party participants can sleep on the boat as always. Huey is cooking for you and you only. He is not cooking for the Reunion folks who are staying at the Wyndham. Don't even ask! He is an old Master Chief and he bites!
Note 3. The Ladies Luncheon is on Tuesday from Noon to 2pm on the Barge. Make sure your wife or girlfriend is signed up. There is no charge this year as the Assoc is picking up the tab on their luncheon. You can thank Kathrin Sagaert and Penny Hertzberg for that! There is a small gift exchange (keep it at $10 or under) and a raffle so bring a little cash with you. Keep it classy and don't mess this up. Dress code is casual/dressy. The ladies are planning a white table cloth affair with real china and silverware. Your special lady will still need to be in the count for food and table setup. Put their name on the Registration form or your name is going to be spelled MUD!
Note 4. The Hospitality Room will be at the Wyndham Hotel for Monday and Tuesday ONLY!!!!! The rest of the week will be on the Razorback Barge or out near the boat itself! What could be better than that?
Note 5. Our USS Redfish brothers have been invited as they are every year. We value their friendship and look forward to seeing them at our Reunions.
