UPDATE 9/01/2018

This will be the final update of attendees before the reunion.

We have a few people have to cancel due to health issues. We will be thinking and missing them. 

The latest to drop is Hal and Joan Peper. I hope to see them all at the next reunion.

The 2018 Reunion Roster 9-01-18

I am departing for Music City Tues AM  9/4/18. My expected ETA is 1500 hrs. (3:00 PM)

I have tried to arrange some roms to be available if you get there early Tues, check at the desk. Our Ready Rom will be open Weds @ 0800

or thereabouts. We are going downtown Honky Tonking Tues night, so it might open later on Weds. If anyone is there and wants to help set it up ,

please come to the Ready Room and pitch in, there is a lot to set up before we open officially at 1500 for the Welcome Reception.

I still have NOT received official notification of VP30 flying a P8A for us on Friday, but I will keep trying.

I look forward to seeing all of you and lets make this reunion the best ever. I do not know how long we can continue this but 

let’s give er Hell while we can!!!

The Roster of attendees that have returned their registration forms to me. This will be updated until reunion date.

2018 Reunion Roster 8-19-18

UPDATE 8/19/2018

The final attendee list is shown above. Any changes from this list will result in additional charges. I am sorry to announce that Dave & Isis Fulcher will not be able to attend this reunion.

Dave is undergoing Radiation treatment and you can’t interrupt the daily treatments (as I well know).

UPDATE 8/05/2018

You MUST have your hotel reservations completed by 8/8/18 to ensure to get the special rate. We have 90 attendees for our Reunion.

It is down from 102 attendees from the 2016 Reunion and I expect it will continue to decrease UNLESS

WE make an effort to attract new members to our group. I am asking for your help in accomplishing this.

I have hired a music trio (Rattlesnakes and Eggs) to perform at our Sat night dinner and also for Thurs night in the Ready Room. Bring your dancing shoes ya’ll

I will continue to provide info until 9/3 when I will depart for the reunion. See ya all there

Guy

UPDATE 7/09/2018

I am waiting to verify if VP30 will be able to bring a P8A, which is the P3 replacement to our reunion for a tour for us.

I am asking for it on Friday 9/7/18, It will be at the airport BNA and sometime around noon. I will post it here if it is a go.

We still have some people who have NOT made their hotel reservations, and or NOT returned their registration forms back to me..

IT is time to “shit or get off the pot” as my grandpa used to say.

If you do not get this done by July 30 you will probably not get to go to the events planned and will have to pay more for rooms if even available.

I also have a good friend that is making us wine from his winery in Houston with our VP40 logo labels on them. A great keepsake….

see ya there

UPDATE 12/6/2017

Howdy shipmates
Believe it or not I have contracted with a hotel for the 2018 Reunion
Our reunion will be Sept 5-8,2018, in Music City USA, better known as Nashville, TN.
I moved the dates from Oct to Sept as it was very cost effective to do it.
I am awaiting for the itinerary  to be sent to me, but there will be numerous day/night trips
including the Grand Old Opry. 
We will lodge at The Inn at Opryland. room rates will be $139 per night plus tax. We will have a web site so you can sign up direct. More info to follow soon, check our web site and also I will send another email to you.
Please spread the word and I hope to see y’all there for a little picking and grinning..
Guy Fisk

BTW 
A LOT of you have not paid your 2017/2018 dues yet. We voted at the last reunion to raise the dues to $20 per year. Effective 1/1/2017.
Please settle it up, as that is the only way to keep this thing going in the future.
thanks
