Dear Golden Eagles,

This is the second in a series of notices regarding the upcoming 2017 reunion in San Diego. 

This is not an event registration package. That package will be sent by regular mail the first week in February. 

The dates for the reunion will be Thursday April 27th through Sunday April 30th. Early arrivals are also welcome on the 26th.

We have had a very good response to our request to make early hotel reservations. At last count we have over 120 rooms already booked. 

If you have not already done so, we strongly encourage you to make hotel reservations soon. You can do this by going to our Golden EagleWebsite . Click on the link Westgate Hotel Reservations. The link is set up to automatically default to a 27-30 April reservation. If you desire to come early or stay later than these dates, please complete the following steps:

1. Change the dates in modify search
2. Click on Check Availability
3. Select Room

If you have any problems with the link or have questions, please contact Mary Buonaguidi at (760)-942-7104.

For your planning purposes, the schedule of events is posted on the GE website. The actual registration package will provide details on the events and the opportunity to sign up for Golf, the Leatherneck Museum Tour, the Ladies High Tea, and the VIP visit to the USS MIDWAY. 

The hotel is located in downtown San Diego within walking distance of the Gaslamp District, Horton Plaza, and Seaport Village which have numerous restaurants and shops to choose from. 

Since parking is limited to valet only, and transportation will be provided for events away from the hotel, we recommend taking a taxi from the airport. It will cost about $12-$15 and is less than a 15 minute ride. 

The next SITREP will announce that the registration package is in the mail. 

Warmest regards and V/r ... Gil 'Duster' Rud
