We are very close to having a reunion and securing a hotel in Virginia 
Beach, VA. The main events would occur on November 3rd, 4th and 5th, 
with a banquet on the night of the 5th. I need a head count to conclude 
negotiations with the hotel and to line up events. Please respond with:

Whether you plan to attend?

How many people?

Number of nights you would use the hotel?

Whether you can walk 150 yards [for one tour]?

This is only a showing of interest, not a commitment.
However we need
the numbers to be as accurate as possible. The Reunion is for all 
members of the Squadron, their friends and families. The airport serving 
the area is Norfolk International [ORF]. You will be happy to know that 
the event is planned to be one of the least expensive which we have 
enjoyed. Please respond to this email, while you remember receiving it.  
Like ASAP!  Thanks.

Would you please ask everyone to check to see if all their contact 
information is current on the squadron roster. You could also give step 
by step instructions on how to access it and how to have the corrections 
made. In addition it would also be good to have your readers check on 
listings other than their own and help make corrections for their mates 
who cannot follow instructions, don't read the newsletter or other 
reasons. I will be using the rooster to make contact with people for the 
reunion. At our age, many need help. Thanks,

Roster: for corrections, contact Ed Copher, 
1. Go to Saints Website 
2. Click on Roster,
3. Enter password: Saints4ever  (capital S)
    sometimes you must enter the pw twice
4. OK



Looking for LOST Saints
