Delta Birddog Reunion 2013 Houston (League City), Tx.
Time has come to begin the preparations for our fourth Reunion folks. There are a lot of details yet to be worked out but initial planning has been done, dates and location have been set and we are working on the programs to keep you running for a weekend with your Comrades in Arms and their families.
First, by popular demand, the dates have been moved from our traditional mid-October time frame to the last weekend of September 2013 with a start date of Thursday, 26 September and ending with our Memorial Service on Sunday, 29 September 2013.
Next, the location chosen as our Reunion hotel is the lovely South Shore Harbor Resort that is located in League City, Texas.
This hotel is located approximately seven miles from the NASA Johnson Space Center and just about the same distance from the well known Kemah Boardwalk entertainment and dining area.
There are several attractions in the area to include Greyhound Racing, the Moody Gardens with a tropical rainforest, and numerous other places to visit on Galveston Island, about a 35 minute drive from the hotel.
Two major airports serve the area, the closest being Houston Hobby Airport and a bit further away George Bush International Airport.
We are looking into a number of activities to keep all of the members and their guests happy and occupied but would like to have some input from all of you out there in Cyberspace. The activities that require the most planning are:
· Charter fishing trip in the Gulf, Visit to NASA (escorted), Moody Gardens (Galveston), Military briefing on the Predator, Army Aviation Unit visit and briefing
Bir Bird Dog fly in canceled due to wind.
