Bob: Thought I'd sent you reunion info.

Halford Reunion held May 3 / 6 this year. Site was Cocoa Beach Holiday Inn at Cocoa Beach, FL. Total attendance was 87 with 39 shipmates.

Hi-lites were Casino Cruise in which ship took a substantial roll to starboard due to sudden turn plus wind and wave surge. Things went sailing.

Tour at NASA On Sat, Banquet Sat night and departure Breakfast Sunday AM.

Advise not to select that hotel. The staff is great but the facility is falling apart.

The buoyant nature of our crew made it a successful reunion despite hotel's short comings.

Next reunion: May 6 / 9, 2002.
Menger Hotel,
San Antonio, TX.
