Proposed Reunion Schedule

  1. The reunion will be on September 13-15 2018
  2. The Naval Space Command has committed to have the marine veterinarian who cares for the dolphins that guard Bangor Base as a speaker for our reunion.
  3. We will go to bid next month for the Hotel where we will run our reunion at. The bid process will be broad based but we think that a hotel at the airport (SEATAC) may have the inside track. Cost and facilities will be the deciding factor.
  4. There is light rail that runs from SEATAC to downtown Seattle for those inclined.
  5. We anticipate that we will run a reception Thursday evening, visit Bremerton/Bangor on Friday and run a special program on Saturday.
  6. We have opened discussions with the Submariner Association of Canada headquartered in Victoria about joining us on Saturday. The association is small as Canada only has 4 submarines. That program could include:
    1. Memorial Service
    2. Six breakout sessions between us and the Canadians could include discussion on these or other topics of interest
  1. We are negotiating with Kitsap Base (Bremerton & Bangor) for a speaker on the operation of the “Reserve Fleet” (Mothball fleet that includes 4 aircraft carriers).
  2. If there is sufficient interest we are considering running a stand-alone tour on Thursday before the opening reception to the Boeing Assembly line in Everett Washington. The Everett facility builds the 747, 767,777, and 787 in what is the largest building in the world.

We will have additional activities and speakers to report on in our next update.
