P.O.D.

There is a hint of reunion in the air. A good idea, long overdue, is coming together. Enough of you have expressed interest to motivate me to push this forward.

We really haven't established anything more than the possibility at this point, but it's looking like Labor Day weekend of 2017 in Orlando, FL, with the USSVI Annual Convention might be a real possibility.

Check the Scuttlebutt in the Reunion Planning forum for conversation as this evolves. Look for updates through the P.O.D., Facebook groups, and the occasional Familygram.

I'll keep you posted!

Looks like fun! Never been to one of these since I walked off the boat in Yokosuka in '85. Tentative at this point but will try to make it to this one.
