Reunion 2008 News

Reunion Dates are set: June 11 – 15, 2008

Reunion Committee: Charlie Monson, Jerry Perry, Willie Stokes, Bob Yee & a member from JCSE to be named soon.

We have a proposed contract with the Hyatt Regency Hotel (downtown Tampa) & your 2008 Reunion Committee will meet with the hotel staff in the near future to iron out the details. Agenda for the reunion should be as shown below if we can get our facilities reservations confirmed. One thing that we are considering adding is a “no host cocktail hour” at the hotel for our members that were assigned to the original CSE.

If anyone has additional agenda items for consideration, please email one of the committee members:

  • Charlie Monson – cmmonson@tampabay.rr.com
  • Jerry Perry – boomerrg@verizon.net
  • Willie Stokes – wstokes@ij.net
  • Bob Yee – bobyee@tampabay.rr.com
  • We plan to have online signup for reunion events that can be payed via “PayPal.” Reservations at the host hotel must be made directly with the hotel. Rates, phone numbers & additional hotel information will be posted here as soon as we get the contract signed.

    The Association is encouraging everyone to consider staying at the host hotel for as many nights as your budget will allow because we will have a contracted number of hotel nights that the association is obligated for.

    Here is the agenda you can expect:

    Day 1 – Wednesday – Registration – Hang out in Hospitality Room

    Day 2 – Thursday (morning) – Golf Outing @ the MacDill AFB Golf Course

    Day 2 – Thursday (late afternoon) “No Host” Cocktail for original CSE @ Host Hotel

    Day 3 – Friday Morning – Visit JCSE & receive briefings & view displays

    Day 3 – Friday Afternoon – Picnic @ Coon’s Creek Facility on MacDill AFB

    Day 4 – Saturday Morning – General Membership Meeting @ Host Hotel

    Day 4 – Saturday Evening – Dining Out with Greater JCSE

    Day 5 – Sunday Morning – Farewell Breakfast

    Note: email me @ bobyee@tampabay.rr.com & let me know if you are attending and what events you plan on participating in. I would also like to know the number & names of your guests. I will keep a “pre-registration” roster published here on our web site so others will know who will be at the reunion.
