Branson 2017 Reunion Dates Firm

(this just received from Gary White):  I got the hotel contract yesterday from the Raddison. The dates are Wednesday October 4th through Saturday, October 7th. Still negotiating some elements of the contract but right now the pricing is $99.95/day plus taxes with a three day front and back overlap. I'll have the rest of the hotel details sometime this week or next. Venues are still in review. I'm waiting for some locations to send me their 2017 calendars.

Jim Rodenkirch, Ailing Seriously


Sam Chirco shared this post:

Our shipmate and friend, Jim Rodenkirch, is having serious health issues. Jim is not one for attention, but prayers and thoughts for him and his family are surely appreciated.
