2015 Black Knights Reunion

Brothers:

It is my pleasure to inform you that I have signed a contract with Fredericksburg Hospitality House Hotel & Conference Center. I have added a link to their website at the bottom of this page. Mark your calendars 9/23/2015 to 9/27/2015. We did add a day because there is so much to see and do in that area, keeping in mind that one day will be spent in Washington DC. for our Memorial Service and sight seeing tour. Here is a brief review of what we have so far:

ROOM RATES ...........$105 A NIGHT, SINGLE OR DOUBLE OCCUPANCY

RATE INCLUDES ... TWO TICKETS FOR A FULL HOT BREAKFAST

ROOM RATES ARE GOOD FOR 5 DAYS BEFORE AND 5 DAYS AFTER THE EVENT

1 COMP NIGHT FOR EVERY 50 NIGHTS ACTUALLY PAID FOR AND COMSUMED

TAX RATE IS 11% OR THE PREVAILING RATE AT THE TIME OF THE EVENT

2 HOSPITALITY SUITES FOR THE DURATION OF THE EVENT.

***************************************************************************

We need Volunteers

We need your help and input in some areas to make this Reunion a success. I would like to set up a committee to work on a couple of projects to take charge of them and see them through.

(1) Quartermasters: I'm not asking you to spend your money on items, I'm asking for ideas for what we should sell, and some people to see that that the booth is manned. Items like T-shirts, bumper stickers, patches, stickers, etc. We will determine the funding later.

(2) Hospitality Rooms: We need responsible people to man and maintain the Hospitality Rooms and keep them stocked. We could use some suggestions on what to have for snacks, and so on.

(3) Buses and Tours: We will have the buses for the day when we go to DC. My thought is after we visit the Wall as a Squadron, and have a Service there, we board the buses again and then start our Tour of DC. The bus Company will take us but we need to give them a schedule of stops. This will take some detailed planning to allow a reasonable amount of time per stop, including time to have a lunch. They do have people to act as Guides, but we need to provide the plans.

The Volunteers can be from anyone that would like to be part of the Reunion, so Ladies here is your chance to be involved. If we don't get enough Volunteers we will continue using Troops to fill in where needed  

If you would like to help and want to Volunteers please contact me:
