From Andy Andrus Squadron Coordinator
Short status report regarding 361 activities at Popasmoke reunion.
There are always changes in something of this magnitude. Doing my best to sort out our stuff from Popasmoke.
We will attend morning practice of the Friday Sunset Parade at Marine Barracks 8th & I. Popasmoke stubbed their toes on this one. There is not space enough for 2500 Popasmokers. Arrangements have been made to accommodate about 250.
We had already planned our luncheon at the Mess Hall, National Marine Heritage Museum. That 'mess hall" ain't your Daddy's mess hall. Initial plans were to leave the Hotel at 0900 Friday and motor out to the museum, Spend the day, including our Squadron luncheon and then return to the hotel motor out to. see the evening parade. The best deal I have been able to arrange is Popasmoke will take us out to 8th & I for the morning parade practice. Our transportation will pick us up at 8th & I at 10:30 for the trip to Quantico. Ron will arrange lunch for us at 12:00. Tour the Museum. (Please note Ron. Hope this does not upset your applecart. I noted you thought you could change the time. Might as well also to charge an even $15 for the lunch. Cost of motoring out to Quantico will be $30 a head. Pricey, but it's the same good deal Popasmoke is offering.)
The next item is the "goodies". Popasmoke builds a little excess in their fees and has moneys from memberships. We don't have that. Scott has located a place in Florida that makes really good hats. They will a 34 on one side and a 53 on the other. These hats cost $13.25 with tax included for an order of 50. The price diminishes some with a larger order. 50 hats will cost $662.50. Obviously I need to know how many hats you folks want. We are starting at a zero base so you can see I have to collect information from you early this summer.
And finally. Our Hooch comes with ice. Ice is no good if you don't have something that needs cooling as in hi-ball, beer and soft drinks. Will start with a small stock of each of those things that need cooling. Then we will have a bowl which hopefully you will contribute to keep the drinks flowing.
It's a plan. Will cost a bit here and there but we are amusing ourselves on our bucks. I have seen some of you guys in action so I know this plan will pretty much cover everything we need.
Please get signed up so this very old coordinator can relax some. I will stay in touch. Remember I can be reached at 208-378-4533
One more note. Al will pass this message so that all of you will get the information simultaneously. Come on Tigers. Lets roar and terrify the natives.
Our Luncheon for the Popasmoke reunion is set up at the Marine Corp Museum and a Squadron Luncheon is set for Friday, 15 August, 2008. . Our Luncheon will be from 1200 till 1400 in the Mess Hall of the Museum. Please click here for the Menu. The cost for the Day is $15.00 plus VA, state tax.
