I have been receiving dues since the newsletter went out last week. THANK YOU for the responses.

We have a few new members in the pipeline and I will post them on our web site soon. Some new faces at the reunion for you to meet and greet.

As of today 8/29 I have 66 people that have made hotel reservations for the reunion. I know some of you have NOT done it yet,

but remember you can reserve your room and cancel it if need be and they will not charge you with at least 1 day notice.

I show 75 people who have sent their forms and paid for the reunion, and I know of some who have NOT done it yet.

I only need a few days notice for the dinners but if you can please confirm with me and the hotel it will make planning a litle bit easier for us

thanks and hope to see you all there in San Diego. We will have FUN and you do not want to miss it !!!!!!!!!!!

We will have a computer and 8 ft projector that will be showing pictures and videos of  VP40  and related  subjects. This will be for at least 1 hour a day in the ready room.

times to be announced at the reunion.

Also an “open Mike” each day for those who would like to tell a sea story or two.

The web site is doing quite nice, we are averaging around 40 hits a day now,with an average of 320 pages viewed a day.

I will continue to add content to make it interesting and informative for you to visit it often.

I have been receiving some dues for the 2010-2012 cycle. THANKS

I have also been receiving some questions about the 2012 reunion. If you scroll down in this post

you will find info about the reunion, hotel  etc.

ALSO I have received the reunion forms from  22 people with their $$ and dinner selections so far THANKS

remember you MUST make your own hotel reservations. Here is their web site.

It looks like we should have a great turnout for the reunion this year. I would like for each member to try and contact

at least 1 other former VP40 member not currently in our group and tell them about us and this web site

and have them join our group. I thank you in advance for this effort.

If you are planning to attend the reunion do not wait to let me know. (the good seats might be taken).

I am planning on sending out a small newsletter in June for those people who do not visit this web site.

Have a great summer and I will see you all in October
