The 2016 Laredo AFB Reunion is canceled.
“Hola, una vez más”. “Hello, Once again”. Laredo AFB, right? Mexico 4 miles away, right? (Yes, I took Spanish at the Junior College while I was a Student Pilot so I could talk to the local girls!)
Unfortunately I have bad news. I am going to cancel our reunion scheduled for this upcoming dates of 15-17 June. We have only 6 of us to sign up for the event at Wright Patterson AFB and the nearby Holiday Inn. That is not near enough participants to trigger the free amenities that the hotel is ready to offer. Thus, we would have to pay extra for the Hospitality Suite as well for the private dining hall.
I think we can still have the event there this year, but let’s shoot for sometime in the fall to possibly gather up more participants. Please email me your suggested dates for anytime this fall, remembering that mid-October is the unofficial end of summer in this area. I will be in Shanghai from 7 to 13 September and unavailable to be Chairman during that time.
For those who have submitted your $100 participant fee I will send refunds ASAP. So please send me your suggested date for a fall reunion at Wright Patterson AFB. I think the location is correct as there is so much to see there about military (and airline) aviation.
Hope to see everyone again this fall. - Bill Secrest
