The San Diego (3 Sisters's) reunion next May (7th-10th) will be the annual FDR Reunion but will be so much more!
What makes this one special is that veterans from all three Midway Class ships will be gathering together in what we believe will be the first ever ship-class reunion!
Host hotel will be the Wyndham Bayside. It is right on the harbor just 5-6 blocks from Midway. If you have not made your room reservation, I'd recommend you do so - you can always cancel if your plans change. CLICK HERE to book a room online or phone 619-232-3861, select"Zero" to talk to a guest service agent. Tell the agent you're with the Midway Class Carrier reunion group.
Regarding the Three Sisters Reunion in San Diego next May:
We've had more response than we anticipated at the hotel!
The block of rooms we reserved are filling very fast. Once the block is filled, the rate guarantee for the reunion will probably not be available!
The rate will probably jump quite a bit!
If you already have your room reserved, you are good to go and no action is needed.
But if you've been waiting, better get on the ball and make your reservation - NOW!
Suggest you act TODAY, not tomorrow!
We're still working out costs and details, but this is our latest working document:
Your comments are welcome.
Please refer to the 2018 Fall Newsletter HERE
for the latest schedule of tentative daily events (refer to pages 12 & 13).
Costs and exact times for tours and banquet are still being worked out.
SECNAV has been invited to be our speaker - stay tuned!
During the entire week, your reunion badge will be your pass to Midway Museum! You will be welcome to visit Midway as often as you like.
Spread the news about this reunion to all those who served on the USS Midway, the USS Coral Sea, or the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt. You don't have to be a member of the reunion associations of these three aircraft carriers to attend – but you do need to have served on one or more of them during your time in the Navy. Family members and guests are welcome to attend, of course. This reunion will be a truly unique event, something never tried before in the annals of retired naval history. Do Not miss it!
