Cancellation of 2015 Bonneville NW Reunion.
« on: December 22, 2014, 08:11:19 PM »
The 2015 Bonneville NW Reunion has been cancelled.

Watch for an announcement later in 2015 regarding 2016.

I so appreciate the support that has existed over the years.

That's too bad to hear, Freud.  I hope it was cancelled for a "good" reason, not something unhappy.  Maybe the '16 Reunion will be twice the fun of the usual Reunion - making up for missing it this year.

Merry Christmas from Nancy and me.

It isn't cancelled for any bad reason.  There is no big bad deal related to the decision.

I know that I had the offer from Tony Thacker to host it if I didn't want to.

He followed thru shaortly after last year event and even made staff assignments

to assist me. I appreciate that support. One reason for that offer not being used is

the distance from Shilo Inn at the airport.  I think it will continue to be held at the Shilo

because it's about 30 miles to the new World of Speed facility and I don't want the guests

on the road with the possibility of DUI citations.

I really appreciate the fun that we have enjoyed during and after the banquet.

It will happen again.

That figures I had hoped to make it this year or 2015. So I will shoot for 2016. You need some guys from Texas there! :roll:

The freeway goes right by the World of Speed building.  It is in Wilsonville.  Progress is being made based on drive-by inspections at 70mph.

Well shoot.... That was my Birthday present from Colleen every year. Sure had a good time!
 Glenn you sure put on a great dinner, and I thank you for all you have done. It's great to rub elbows with hero's and get to hear from everyone.
 Maybe 2016 will be the year.
Thanks again Glenn.  :cheers:

Doc:

I was hoping to attend this year. I know it is for good reason. Please let me know if I can assist you.

Fellows         Thanks for the grief counseling.

If it means that Smitty gets out of the house for one

evening each year I will start planing the next one

real soon.
