This is late, but we had a great time in Seattle. We hadn't ever been in that part of the country before, so it was quite a treat. Thanks, Dennis for all of your work. We are already looking forward to St. Luis. James & Janett Brush

Hey Dennis

That is a great idea having the re-union in St. Louis. But what would be the chances of having it in the Midwest like Texas san Antonio to be exact see if all the other guys can chew on that for awhile Thanks.

At each reunion the attendees participate in a business meeting and decide via democratic process where to have the next reunion. For at least the last two reunions, San Antonio has made it onto the short list but lost out in the vote process.

So, basically the best way to get the reunion in the city you’d most like is to attend the reunion and get the group to vote for it!

I am sure San Antonio will make it on of these times soon.

Dear Shipmates, the USS England Reunion 2011 Planning is now ahead full! Now that I am not looking for a job, I have time to push on this for a bit! I had a long teleconference with the city travel people in St. Louis today, very helpful and should have some quotes from hotels in the next few days. Woo hoo!

Dennis,
Who was the person from St. Louis that was going to head up the planning for the 2011 reunion?

No one volunteered to head up the whole thing. I believe Mr. Keller volunteered to assist. I will be contacting him to ask about the quality of the hotels that are now bidding on us.

Please know that at this time the 2011 reunion will be postponed until at least 2012. The economy’s wows have hit too many of us (including for a time my own family), and the event is too far behind to catch up.

The decision was discussed with those who’d stepped up to assist.

An announcement will be going out shortly and the web site will be updated at that time.

I do apologize for this falling apart as it has. We did try to get it going but nothing worked out right. It will get restarted and figured out.

EVERYTHING happens for a reason, that I believe strongly! You, my shipmate O'brien, have done soooo much for keeping USS England alive that you need to apologize to none, Thank you for what you have and continue to do! I will be there in 2012 for sure! (What would you think of a impromptu San Diego 2011 on a small scale "mini" reunion..... even if it was just a day or a dinner with an ocean view somewhwere? Just a thought)

Thank you for you kind words. The support is wonderful.

You are the second to mention a Mini Reunion in the west. We have done these before and they are informal and fun. We’ll look into this for sure and get things reved up.

Sounds GREAT! Let me know, I'm already planning a trip to Oxnard Cali next summer but have not picked a date so I would love to match it up to a mini reunion! I know of a couple ol' BT's that live out there that I might be able to sway into making it!

Dennis, Thank you for all you do for this group. I am in total support of your decision. I notice some interest in a west coast mini. I just spent the weekend at the Camp Pendelton San Onofre Recreation Beach. They have mobile home style bungalos as well as RV spots with hook ups. That might be a more central location for every one to meet for a short weekend get together and Bar B Que. I can help organize that if you want.
