Trying to get a general consensus on a reunion idea. What would everyone think of having a reunion in the white sands area scheduled around a Lance firing. I have talked to a couple people out there and it might be possible for us to attend a firing. I asked about the possibility of us putting togeter a firing section and was shot down immediately. Safety, regulations, blah blah.

Sounds interesting although I can't leave Michigan at this time. What happened at the last reunion. I got e-mailed about it. Is there any other group on the Web where this is talked about?

Sorry so long for a reply. I'll do some more checking and let y'all know what I can talk the White Sands people into. The last reunion went pretty good, about 40 people showed up and we all had a great dinner at Mikes Sports Grill here in Lawton. Then a small get together/pic nick rgw following day at ambrosia springs on Fort Sill. I never did get a list of who all attended but Im sure it is out there somewhere.

Who Went Last Time?
