21 --23 OCT
I've talked to the Travelodge Motel in Kissimmee and have confirmed the dates for our reunion; it will be from 21-23 Oct. Jim and I will be signing a contract shortly with them; once we do that anyone who will need a room will be able to contact the motel for reservations. Room prices should be approx $50 + tax/night.
We plan to have golf shirts with the squadron/Gold Digger patches, ball caps and commemorative coins available. Once we know what the costs will be, we'll let you know.
FYI, Larry Nace says he'll put together a golf "tournament" if enough people are interested.
Jim and I need help with publicity. Jim will place reunion notices in the AF Times, American Legion & VFW magazines. I'll place reunion notices in the Air Force Association magazine and the Military Officer
(MOAA) magazine. This is where we need your assistance; could you put reunion notices in your local newspaper, on community bulletin boards, in golf courses, church bullentins, etc.
FYI, here's the link for pictures of the EC-121 at the Peterson Air & Space Museum in Colorado Springs. If anyone has any Connie items they'd like to donate, contact Dave Austin (Austincspg@aol.com)
There are many squadron mates who aren't on this email. If you know someone who isn't on this email, could you please pass reunion info to them?
Thanks and looking forward to seeing all of you in October.
Phil and Jim
ALL EC-121 /WV-2 PEOPLE ARE INVITED
