CUPP Marine Reunion 2015

Thursday Oct 22 - Sunday Oct 25

 Reunion Info from Stan. We hope you guys and significant others can come. We are a close knit group who are always looking for brother CUPP Marines.. Some of us get there a couple of days early or stay a few extra days to make a vacation out of it.. We also have a Yellow Ball Golf Tournament during the reunion. It is open to anyone who attends.


Gentlemen: below are the codes to book lodging for the reunion. Again, the dates are Thursday, 10/22 thru Sunday, 10/25. Some of us are planning to add on a few days either before or after the dates referenced so please feel free to share your plans with the group.

The rate is $103.56. I am also looking into tax waiver possibilities so if applicable that would save some of us around $10 bucks a night.

Please shoot me a note if you are attending & I will keep the group updated with our attendee list, etc.


SpringHill is a Marriott property and has received excellent reviews. The dates are 10/22 (Thursday) thru 10/25 (Sunday) & I have them down to  $104 per night INCLUSIVE of tax.


In general, weather is awesome late October. Hotel is near NASA, Galveston Bay & Kemah Bay / boardwalk. Lots of restaurants, bars, etc.

Tentative schedule:

10/22 Thursday - check in - working on a near by restaurant and or the hotel bar for our meet & greet. 

10/23 Friday - NASA / evening group chow or dinner cruise on Galveston Bay ?

10/24 Saturday - AM golf / Kemah boardwalk / group catered picnic

10/24 Saturday evening - dinner cruise on Galveston Bay ?

10/25 Sunday - breakfast / check out

Again, this schedule is TENTATIVE but wanted to give an overview. There are many other points of interest in the area & I am working with a buddy to flesh out what fits best for our group. We can also add an additional day for those who would like to do so.

If I am still missing names please let me know so I can update my group contact list. Once the lodging deal is finalized I will also be adding all particulars to the CUPP Marine Facebook page. This is a terrific property for the money!

Thx for your patience!


P.S. please shoot me an e-mail with any questions but don't forget that a lot is still a "work in process"


Thanks to all.

Semper Fidelis

Stan Lawrence
