The 2017 April Gulfport official reunion information has been confirmed by Sec Norm.

This is an IDEA of what will happen, based on past reunions: 

The  reunion kick-off cocktail hour starts late afternoon Thursday 27 April 2017 at the Ramada hotel
which is located on Highway 49 South, about 1/4 mile on the right after you go under the I-10
overpass.   The Ramada phone # is 228-868-8200 - you can make reservations now!
The guided tours start from the hotel Friday and Saturday during the day. 

Island X-1, our hosts, will have a luau Friday night and the banquet on Saturday night, both
at the hotel.   The banquet and other events are NOT formal dress. 
Our Minuteman  WILL hold a short  Battalion meeting about 10:30 am, SUNDAY,
30 April 2017 morning in the Mississippi Room (right across from the registration room).  
Our meeting agenda:  At our Sunday meeting Secretary Norm will give a VERY short financial
and membership report. 

Then each member will have the chance to stand up, introduce themself and their spouse and say
a few words about their time in NMCB 62 and the Seabees.  You do NOT have to be a current
alumni group member to attend this meeting.  However, you will  be ineligible to win any of
our door prizes.  We will also take individual, couples and group photos before,
during and after our meeting.
After our  meeting we all go to the picnic and have another wonderful meal and refreshments.  At the
2016 Sunday picnic there were almost as many folks as attended the Saturday night banquet.  Very cool!    
The food is outstanding.

After the picnic is over, we have been gathering around the pool
- inner courtyard area for more great conversation and group photos.   Bring a
lawn chair and a camera.    A great time! 

Make plans to depart Gulfport on Monday morning, 1 May 2017.
