2009 Reunion Date Set!!
As we have not had any great input from the
mailing (both US Postal and Emails) it has been decided to set a
date for the 2009 reunion and go from there. Paul Kulba set the
following date of
10/16/2009 at Hot Springs AR.
Have booked the upstairs room at the following place " Last
Chance Lakeside Cafe". Have use of the room from noon to 9:00
pm. Our small Cookie Jar will allow us to keep those W/O
Internet Connections to be kept abreast of planning. Also
entering the picture is the Anchorage 09 event open to all
former Nike Guys that served in Alaska and supporters of the
Save Site Summit Group. Travel to Anchorage will be costly
for those wishing to attend and doing 2 events in the same year
may put a strain on some budgets. Hot Spring's Village is
a "Gated Community" the largest in the USA there are quite a few
rental houses, condos that are available for short term rental.
Here is a link for rentals in that area as Ed Hansen's wife has
a Realtor connection in the area. Two or Three couples could
share the House rental making this fairly inexpensive rentals.
You should have Ed's E-Mail and phone which is included in the
newsletter will not post here on the web site. This is a link a
Realtor in the area.
or contact Helen Seekatz at Triple D Realty. You all should have
Paul's E-Mail address also I don't want to post it on the web if
you don't have it E-Mail your comments to the web site and I
will forward that info to either Ed or Paul Also a
secondary contact for rentals in the area if you want to rent a
house or condo for the time there and "double up" to split costs

General Store". Harry Bohlam acted as MC for the event tickets

arms length "Total Reach" for $ 10.00 we ended up with a
cash reserve of about $140.00 which will fund postage for the
next reunion. On the left is Howard Mowell and right is
