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.  http://www.hotspringsvillagehomepage.com/nightyRental.php 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 is VillageVilas.com phone number of 1-(800)-738-7368 talk to Kurt.   For more on the 2009 Reunion click on the Info link below this box.
