Shipmates and friends,

The weather is starting to warm up to get us used to the warmer weather in Arizona at the reunion this year.  We are about 3 months away from the 2022 USS Goldsborough Association reunion.  We are getting reunion forms in and it seems like we should have a pretty nice sized group.   We have some new shipmates planning on attending and many of the regulars are sending in reservations as well. The host hotel will be the Ramada by Wyndham Tucson.  The hotel has free parking and free hot American breakfast buffet included in their price of $85. a night.  With taxes etc. it is $99.25 a night.  Room rates are good for 3 days before and after the reunion.  

If you are planning on attending you have until August 25th, 2022 to get your forms in and your rooms reserved, but the sooner we have a good idea of how many are coming we can make sure we can get transportation, meals, etc. finalized .    The planned itinerary is below.  There are all sorts of other activities in the area including bars, restaurants, and shops. The hotel is right on the trolley line and we will able to get around the area without any trouble.  Unfortunately, the hotel does not have an airport shuttle, so you will have to make your own arrangements to get to the hotel.  It is about 8 miles from the airport to the hotel.  There are companies that you can preplan and UBER is around $20.  The Frys have a great time planned and we hope to see you there.
