Subject: 2017 Las Vegas Reunion
Sure hope everyone is doing well. Joe and I flew out to Las Vegas this past Tue. to “scope” out the city for our reunion. We just returned late Friday night.
While there we had the good fortune to meet up with Bill Simpson who met us at the airport and graciously drove us all around the city and surrounding area every day. Bills efforts really simplified our trip and we owe him a great amount of gratitude. Of course Joe and I treated him to some libations at the hotel every evening between 5&7 pm. Of course this was Happy Hour.
We have contracted with the Embassy Suites on Swenson Street in Las Vegas. The hotel is in close proximity of the strip and other attractions.
Also there is a Hofbrau Haus German restaurant just a block away of which we visited 3 times. We were told the beer is shipped over from Germany every week on a ship, as well as a lot of the food. I am in negotiations with them in the possibility that we may have our banquet at their facility. It would be an easy 1 block walk from the hotel. Stay tuned to our web-site for more info in the very near future.
I will be putting a tour together to the Hoover Dam complex which is only about 30 miles away. Also I’m thinking about the possibility of a Grand Canyon tour. This would be a full day and I haven’t made my mind up on this one.
Also Bill, myself and Joe drove out to Nellis AFB to see if the Thunderbirds might be there. They were there, at least their aircraft were. Unfortunately we weren’t able to speak with any of the pilots as we wanted to talk with them about the possibility of them putting on a show for our group while we are in Vegas. Bill Simpson is going to do some “follow up” on this issue for us.
As there is so much to do and see in the Las Vegas area, I have decided to add an extra day to this reunion. Instead of beginning on a Wed. and ending on a Friday, the reunion will begin on a Tue. (registration day) and end on Friday. Dates are Oct. 3rd thru 6th. 2017. Weather should be great during this time period.
For our “golfers” one of our other members who lives in the area, has graciously volunteered to “ramrod” a golf outing. More on this as we get closer to the reunion. His name is Robbie Robertson. More on the reunion as we move closer.
