The Prez Sez 22 Oct 2022

Well, some kind of Association president I am. It is with the deepest of regret that I inform you that my Linda and I will not be attending the upcoming reunion two weeks from now. I have an emergent medical condition which requires treatment 3 days per week for the next 5 weeks and getting out to Las Vegas is no longer an option. I would have postponed treatment but the nature of the affliction and the associated pathogen can grow into a major problem quickly and its been a good 3 months since I first had symptoms. Its only been a few weeks since the diagnosis and treatment started a week and a half ago so the smart thing to do is get started ASAP. Enough of this.

I spoke with Bucky Huber, our reunion host, a couple of days ago. There are about 35 shipmates signed up to attend and a total of about 78 total attendees. If you would still like to attend, Bucky says you can print off a registration form and send it in to “A Complete Reunion.” The address is on the form. They only take checks. No credit cards. You need to hurry!!! If you get to Vegas and still haven’t signed up you can do it there. About the only consequence is that you won’t have a name tag.

That’s about it. Again, I am so disappointed that I will not be able to be there. It has been a pleasure and honor to serve the Association (you) for the last 4 years as the Vice President and President. Hoist two or six for me (each day) since I am forced into temporary abstinence. AND HAVE FUN IN VEGAS, BABY!!!!!!
