Sadly, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2022 Reunion in Branson. We had less than 20 registrations and reservations. Not only is that far too few to break even but too few of our fellow Seabees to gather around and tell Seabee stories.

Please note that your room reservation will be cancelled for you automatically. You do not need to call the hotel to cancel.  If you would  still like to go to Branson in September, and utilize your reservation at our group rate, please let me know by Friday, August 26th, by 9 a.m.
CT, and the hotel will honor your reservation.

The hotel will cancel all of our reservations on Friday morning except for those of you who let me know you still plan to travel to Branson separate from the Reunion.

Ken Gordon is working on returning you deposits.

Although Branson, MO is a great destination and the Radisson Hotel has been wonderful to work with; COVID and three cancellations has brought a negative connotations with this location. So, we are moving on for next year. We are in the process of planning for Nashville in 2023, and look forward to seeing you next year.

Please advise me when you read this email. I need to know that everyone knows the reunion is cancelled that has made reservations.
