T.S. Eliot Quote - Going too far Pirates Religion Churchhill Brotherhood Home Address

Three months, twenty-seven days, and roughly five hours, but who’s counting? Besides me, I mean.

There is precious little time left to get your planning for June in order, and get reservations made at the Best Western Silverdale Beach Hotel in Silverdale, WA, and make whatever travel arrangements must be made.

Registration will be opened shortly, as soon as we nail down the cost, but expect it to be in the $100-$150 range, plus another $25-$50 for spouses.

In the meantime, everyone keeps asking me, “Who’s going to be there?”

Well, me for one, and that should be enough to seal the deal, but it would be a great help if you would take a few minutes to log into the site and update your plans and arrangements status.

You can update your REGROUPEX 20 plans and arrangements here:

REUNIONS >> REGROUPEX 20 >>> ATTENDANCE PLANS

Simply search for your name, click on the field to update, and make your choice from the options that will pop up for you.

When you share your plans, your profile is updated, which lets other shipmates see whether you will be at the reunion or not.

Under ATTENDANCE PLANS you can also see lists of those that are attending REGROUPEX 20, those that can’t and those that are undecided.

Take a look while you are updating your status, and get in touch with those shipmates you’d like to see there and aren’t currently on the list.

Note that you must be registered on the website to access and update REGROUPEX 20 attendance plans.

Finally, get busy. Only 3 months, 27 days, and 5, no, now 4 hours left before we kick-off REGROUPEX 20 in Silverdale, WA.

There is not a moment to lose!
