The sixth reunion location voted on by the VO-67 squadron and family members is San Diego, California. This special reunion will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, formally the Red Lion Hanalei. We will be in the same location as the famous and often talked about fourth reunion in San Diego 2005. If you were at that one you will remember the great hospitality room set up with great snacks and very pleasant tropical setting of the hotel grounds. Plenty of room for everything including the VO-67 archives. The banquet facilities are outstanding. The reunion schedule is still in the planning stages by the reunion committee. I do know that the famous "Chocolate Volcano "will be served again with lots of chocolate cascading down a chocolate fountain served with fresh pineapple ,honeydew, cantaloupe, strawberries, brownies, waffles and marshmallows for dipping. Be serenaded by sixty's music while you gobble up the chocolate. On Friday a special bus tour and lunch to several places, secret for now, in San Diego will highlight the day. The tour and lunch will be included with your registration fee.
Complete reunion details will be posted on the VO-67 web site soon. In the meantime, I have posted a special Hotel weblink to make your hotel reservations now. Normally we must wait until six months before the event but since June is one of the most popular times they are giving us extra time. Room rates are somewhat higher than last time $ 129 per night up from $109 four years ago. The $129 room rate applies three days before and three days after the reunion for folks who want to spend extra days sightseeing in the San Diego area.
Remember, plan on being at the hotel if possible on Wednesday. The Hospitality will be open on Wednesday for early arrivers. Ron Velho and his fine crew will host the hospitality room once again.
