For those of you haven’t heard, the USS WILLIAM H. BATES (SSN 680) reunion, the AMOEBA RACES 21, is happening shortly at the USSVI convention in Orlando Florida.
Here’s what you need to know:
WHERE: The Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, 9939 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL 32819.
WHEN: From Monday, 30 August 2021 at 10:00 until Wednesday, 01 September 2021 at 11:00. Some will be staying for the duration of the USSVI Convention which runs through Friday
WHAT: The reunion kicks off with an all-day outing and sea-story swap at Wekiva Island, just north of Orlando, in Longwood, FL, with seats, shade, beverages, and a bar-b-que. There will not be a hospitality suite at the Resort, as we will be using the common USSVI spaces during the convention.
HOW MUCH: $35 for singles, $45 for shipmate and spouse/significant other. Rooms are currently filled at the Rosen Shingle Creek, the the rate, $105/night, will be honored at other local Rosen resorts. I have two rooms reserved which I may not be able to us, so I may be able to re-assign those to late-comers. Let me know if you need a room.
