We are looking forward to welcoming everyone from the Okanogan to beautiful Colorado Springs. We have re-scheduled everything that was being planned for last year and are  monitoring and re-confirming all the venues and tours.

Start with a trip to the Air Force Academy for a drive through of this state of the art campus with a stop at the Visitor’s Center and other opportune spots. Unfortunately the Chapel is closed for a complete renovation but you will be able to see this unique architectural landmark from the outside. The on to the Garden of the Gods – one of the top rated parks in the country. Your will have lunch at the historic Trading Post with time to visit the gift shop – filled with not only the usual “touristy” items but beautiful jewelry and art. Don’t leave without some of the best fudge anywhere. Then back to the hotel for time in the hospitality room and the Ship’s Auction.

The next afternoon visit either the National Museum of WWII Aviation with many restored plans and pieces of memorabilia or the United State Olympic & Paralympic Museum/ This museum opened last November and is rated as the #1 new museum in the country. The architecture is unique and beautiful and the museum itself is highly interactive.

The reunion will conclude with group pictures and the banquet.

The brochure will be here within the next few days so you can download, print and send in your registration for this great event! See you in Colorado Springs.
