    Why is banquet on Sunday night? Has always been on Sat.nights,and leaving on Sun. Those still working May not be able to stay Sunday night for the banquet if they have to be at work Mon. Morning.

      Thanks for the question, I am sure some of the other members have the same thoughts.

      The reason is money. We are having the reunion on the east coast next year near Washington D.C., and it is an expensive place to visit. Through our committee we visited several hotels that could support a reunion and were a good quality hotel with reasonable rates.

      By shifting our banquet to Sunday night we got a break on the meal and the ballroom. plus the room rate is very reasonable.

      So to provide the best venue at an affordable price, shifting the banquet to Sunday was the best bang for the buck.

      We talked to several members (not all by any means) and they supported the move to Sunday.

      We also are starting a day later so instead of arriving on Wednesday you can arrive on Thursday and not miss the Wednesday for work.

      Thanks for the question,

        Thanks Jim, now will try to look the site over. By the way how do we post pictures to the gallery? I will look around to see if I can figure it out, but an answer might help out others and me if I don’t figure it out.

      We wil send out the reunion registration by snail mail , and it will be on this site which will be a much easier way to sign up. I believe you can contact the hotel and make reservations now. Tell them you are with SBSA. If you are unable contact me again and We will recheck with the hotel.

    Will a reunion tee shirt be designed this time? If so do we have a vendor lined up yet? I have a nephew who owns a co. that does screening & embroidering. Just a through.
