Informal gatherings in the Hospitality Room were held on Thursday and Friday evenings. Thursday, when most arrived, was the "Meet and Greet" function. Friday was a "do your own thing" night but with all the free food and drink, many just stayed in or near the Hospitality Room where "sea stories" abounded.
Various tours were scheduled and our members took advantage of those throughout the four day reunion. Below are random shots of members waiting in the lobby to board buses and some shots taken during the Patriot's Point/Fort Sumter tour.
Of course Saturday evening's banquet was the highlight of the reunion. Photos of that event follow.
