GOLDSBOROUGH 2019 REUNION registration     


Ahoy Shipmates,

We are now into August and summer is in full swing.  Hopefully everyone is enjoying the summer even with some of the areas weird weather this year. The reunion is coming up fast and it is time to get your reservations and registration turned in.  This will be the Goldsborough Association’s 20th reunion.  It will be held September 29th thru October 4, 2019 in Oklahoma City. 

Our host hotel will be the Best Western Saddleback at a rate of $84.99 per night for a king room and $89.99 per night for a double queen room.  This rate will be good September 26 – October 6, 2019.  You must call the hotel at 405-947-7000 or 800-228-3903 and mention the Goldsborough Reunion to get these rates.  Best Western national reservations cannot access the discounted room block.  Please use the Goldsborough reunion price to make sure we get our number of rooms we guarantee to get our hospitality room.  The hotel has free parking, a complimentary full hot breakfast buffet, and a free airport shuttle. Reunion and hotel reservations are due by Friday, September 1, 2019. Hotel Reservations after September 2nd will be space and rate availability basis. Early reunion registration fee is $200 per person by September 1st. Registration fee after September 2nd is $225 per person and due by September 16 , 2019.  Late registrations might not get clothing in the correct size due to timing.

Please fill out the registration form and send with payment to William Biller.  Guests must take care of hotel rooms themselves.  Again, remember to call the hotel direct at the phone numbers above and mention the USS Goldsborough Association to get the Goldsborough rate.  

The tentative schedule is:
Sunday, September 29th – Meet and greet at hotel
Monday, September 30th – Tour Oklahoma Bombing Memorial followed by lunch cruise.  Goldsborough Memorial service possibly at Bombing Memorial
Tuesday, October 1st – 45th Infantry Division tour followed by lunch and visit at the Western Heritage Museum
Wednesday, October 2nd – Free Day
Thursday, October 3rd – Morning Association Meeting.  Evening banquet and auction.
Friday, October 4th – Farewell

Please remember to bring an item for the auction Thursday night.  The auction helps fund the scholarship fund and pay for the cost of the snacks etc. in the hospitality room.  This helps keep our reunion fees down.  

Many of us have changed a little since serving on the “Goldy”.  This year we are asking  you send along with your registration, a picture of when you were on board the “Goldy” to help jog our memory a little.

Can’t wait to see Oklahoma City.  Another area of the country my wife and I have never seen much of.  We thoroughly enjoy seeing the different sights of this country that attending the reunions affords us the opportunity to do.  Looking forward to seeing old friends and shipmates and meeting some more new ones.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  Hope to see you in Oklahoma City.
