So far we only have nine rooms booked for the Savannah mini-reunion. We have blocked 30 rooms and need to fill at least 80 percent of that number (24 rooms) to avoid financial penalties. I know that the reunion materials say that the deadline for registrations is not until March 31, but that’s the deadline for getting the group rate; on March 31 the hotel will release any unbooked rooms back to inventory. However, we only have until March 2 to adjust the size of our block without penalty. (It’s already too late to cancel completely without a substantial financial penalty.) Unless our room bookings pick up sharply in the next 18 days we are going to have to make a large downward adjustment in the size of our block on March 2, and late registrants may not be able to get a room. If you plan to come please book your room now; there is no immediate payment for the room and you can always cancel if you need to do so. The registration materials are posted at hmm-265.org/reunions/Savannah Mini-reunion.
On another subject, the ‘Members’ section is open for business. It is easy to register and I encourage everyone to do so. Completing your member profile is not required for membership but it would be nice if you let us know what you’ve been up to in the years since we served together. Your profile is accessible only to members who are registered and logged in. The members section also has a Discussion Board where you can comment on posted topics and propose new ones. While you are on the website you might want to just browse through the menus a little. We have done a good bit of work on it lately and there likely is some stuff you haven’t seen.
