Hi guys what a trip it has been. Too many stories for now but I just wanted to say Hi and I will post here when I can. I look at the picture on the home page and it brings back memories of friends, team mates/shipmates of some of the best time of my life (even though we may have bellyached a lot then). Good to see you guys and I am looking forward to the next reunion.
It’s been less than 24 hours since we launched our website. I’m very pleased with the response.

I have connections at Thunder Valley Casino and could see what kind of deal can be put together for a reunion.
This is a work in progress!
The look and feel will come together and improve over time.
