------Saturday the 27th--- WE will have a welcome table set up in the common area of the lobby from about 1300 on. We are planning an informal get together in the early evening.
------Sunday the 28th ---- Bus trip to Gettysburg with a personal tour guide who is a friend of John R's. It will be a whole day trip with dinner at the restaurant that John R's son works at near in Gettysburg.
---- Not yet scheduled:
------Memorial Ceremony at The Wall.
------Trip to USMC Museum with Lunch/Dinner (depending on the time we go) at the Globe and Laurel Restaurant a short distance from the museum. This is a "must go" for all Marines passing through Quantico. It has tons of USMC memorabilia and is owned by a retired WW2 Marine.
-------River Cruise on the Potomac. It is being organized by Stan (who else could set this up except the Cruise Master himself) Don't worry Stan we have your back! Outstanding!!!
------A day on your own in DC with the cruise possibly that evening.
------The Second Annual Yellow Ball Tournament hosted by Austin Johnson. Don't worry Austin. you do not have to pay for it (unless you forget the Yellow Ball).
------Dinner out one night at our favorite Italian restaurant that John R., Stan and I take our wives to once a year for dinner. We may be able to order their special appetizer if it is available.
Again, the dates for the reunion are set.. Saturday and Sunday events are set.. but the other stuff is till in the works. I hope to have the hotel info later this week. Some of the events will need to be paid up front if you want to attend.. (river cruise and bus to Gettysburg) but we will let you know about that later. We are using a bus for transportation to Gettysburg because our tour guide will ride with us on the bus and explain different features of the battlefield as we travel around the area. We are always up for suggestions (except Saturday and Sunday)
