To the Crew:

Here it is, August, reunion time. Chip has everything squared away and I am finishing up the details for the Top Gun tour at NAS Fallon on 25 Aug 2015.. For those going on the tour you will need a picture ID and SS number and I will need a final count by August 7th.

(Please send Bob your SS number(s) if you want go to Fallon August 7th)

I am excited and looking forward to our annual get together. I always enjoy the camaraderie, the activities, the food, the auction and the spontaneous thing.   It’s not too late and we would greatly enjoy seeing you.

See you in Reno

PS – I heard a “journalist ” report the water level in Lake Tahoe on the California side was different than on the Nevada side.  So I thought I should warn people.

California is experiencing very dry conditions. The state line runs through Lake Tahoe and the water level on the California side is reported to be 30 feet below normal while the water level on the Nevada side is normal. People are cautioned not to jump or dive from the higher Nevada water to the lower California water as there are no ladders to climb back up to Nevada.

From Bill,

“Saltoriya”, a theatrical cirque sensation, is the show at the Eldorado Resort Casino during our reunion. The Group Price for Show Tickets only is $27.23 p/p and w/Buffet they are $40.00 per person.  Only dark night is Monday, August 24th.  Show time is at 7:00p. We are looking at Sunday night or Tuesday night for anyone in the group interested. Please let Chip scchapin6607@msn.com know if you want to attend the show.
