ANNUAL VP-93 Golf Outing and Picnic August 5, 2017
Skipper, I was at the Concorde Inn yesterday (and NO...........I wasn't getting a room :)), I am a member of the fitness club there. I spoke with the Assistant Manager, Donna Vamvas, to find out the "scoop" on the rates for our Executioner's and friends. She told me that, while the "Military Rates" apply to Active Duty, she worked with me on rates for us in August and November. She assured me that she would keep with previous rates of $85/night and gave me a "group code number" to use when calling to make the reservation. I went ahead and blocked 10 rooms, 6 Queens and 4 Kings (they can work with that issue too), but here is the catch............they require a 2 week in advance room reservation, so they will hold them until 7/24, after which time they will be dumped back into the main bank. Also, she told me that people who book through Trivago, Hotwire, Expedia, etc, will be paying more than the $85 rate. The regular rate is $139 on weekends, so this is quite an advantage. Caryl, if you could post this info on the web site, that would be helpful. Concorde Inn of Clinton Township 44315 Gratiot Avenue Clinton Township, MI 48036 phone: 586-493-7300 fax: 586-493-7330 ***Reservations must be made by 07/24/2017*** Room rate: $85 + tax when booking directly through Concorde Inn When calling to make reservations, use code 0804VP, under the group name "VP-93" I hope this information is helpful. If we find out how many people intend on booking here, I can block more rooms if needed.
LH02 Work Detail Saturday June 10th
Of special note is t he 2017 LH02 Work Party has been established. It will be an exterior wash on Saturday June 10. Muster 1000 hours SHARP. Obviously we need ‘hard ground' for the bucket truck and we need as many hands as possible. We can get 4 hose's working so I will form up 4 teams to wash/rinse sections of the aircraft.
Again, it would be great if the folks that will participate contact me IN ADVANCE so I know who/how many folks we'll have.
Note; LH02 washes have resulted in wet clothes. A Change of clothes might be a good idea.
