REUNION #46, SAVANNAH GEORGIA

5th – 9th April 2020



Plans are well underway for our #46 reunion. The highlight of the week will be a tour of the National Museum of The Mighty Eighth Air Force (http://www.mightyeighth.org/).  I urge you all to read Masters of the Air by Donald Miller.  You will really appreciate The Mighty Eighth if you do.

 

Reunion will take place during April 5-April 9, 2020 in the Pooler area of Savannah, GA. This is about 4 miles from the airport and 6-7 miles from Bay Street along the Savannah River.

 

Hotel, right next to the museum, is the Best Western Plus (Suites.)  155 Bourn Ave., Pooler, GA. Ph 912-330-0330. Our rate is $105.57 per nite, includes all taxes. Just mention you’re with NWSA. Free parking, Free WIFI and Free Breakfast are includedThey also offer an Airport shuttle. You may cancel 72 hrs prior to reservation time. Every room comes with a sitting area, Fridge & Microwave. Venue is at exit 102 at Rt 95 & GA Rt 80.

 

Full scheduling of events and event pricing will appear in November Aerograph or on the website prior. There is plenty of great shopping, restaurants and a cinema within a 2-mile area from the hotel.

 

Along with the Mighty Eighth tour, we’ll tour lovely, historic Savannah by trolley, have lunch at Paula Dean’s and have plenty of free time to enjoy the area. We’ll arrange nine holes of golf at a nice local course.  Banquet will be held at our hotel or nearby Sam Sneads which has excellent food.

 

So, we’re off and running.  Weather should be decent.  All we need is the crowd!

2021 Reunion #47 Questionnaire
 

At Reunion #45 incoming President Jim Romano, after getting approval of Savannah, GA for next year’s reunion, suggested a 4-day cruise for Reunion #47 in 2021. The cruise would be to Atlantis the Bahamas, out of Port Canaveral, FL or Charleston, SC. Both easy in, easy out ports. Baltimore has good cruises to the Bahamas also.


The cost ($500-700) would be roughly what reunion attendees have been paying for lodging with the added benefit of free meals and entertainment being included.  Late Spring or early Fall 2021 was suggested as the time frame for the cruise reunion.


President Jim would like to get input on this from the membership. How do you feel about it?  Let him know by clicking the Cruise Survey link below and completing the form:
