USS TUSK (SS-426) REUNION
September 28 thru October 1, 2017
At the close of our 2015 reunion Tusk Crew Members chose to have the 2017 Tusk Reunion in Branson
Branson provides a wide variety of quality entertainment and can conveniently be added to the front or back end of a larger vacation trip. This would include 3 days prior and/or 3 days post reunion dates.
If you prefer to fly use the Springfield MO regional airport just 30 miles north of Branson.
The Tusk Reunion committee has chosen the Branson Tourism Center BTC Group to help us put
together a reunion agenda that will appeal to our audience with a wider variety of entertainment.
This is the time to REUNITE and to also salute those we have recently lost.
Refer to the enclosed BTC flyer for the various package rates. These rates include all of the entertainment venues, bus transportation, lunches, dinners and 3 nights at the Grand Plaza with a full breakfast buffet. The only fee the Tusk Committee is requesting from each person attending the reunion is $20 (twenty dollars) to cover some miscellaneous reunion expense and will be collected at check in on September 28, 2017. Other expenses will be covered out of our existing reunion account.
NOTE: If you are a vegetarian please inform the BTC contact so an arrangement can be made for the Banquet menu.
Please consider signing up to attend this reunion SOONER rather than later because we need to know attendance numbers early for contractual reasons and we want to at least double our usual attendance list. YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNTIL JUNE 30, 2017. Call your Tusk buddies and make this reunion a special event on your "bucket list".
To register for the reunion call Lesley at BTC at 1/800-268-4014, M-F 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central time and refer to our group #23330. If she is not in, someone will take care of you and/or answer all of your questions or concerns. You will be prompted to leave a credit card number on file and if for some reason you need to cancel before June 30, 2017 there is NO cost to you. After June 30, 2017 there is a cancellation fee of 10% per person and any cancellations within 30 days of arrival are Non-Refundable.
ALL reservations must be made through BTC at 1-800-268-4014.
BTC offers an Optional Cancellation Protection Plan costing $25 (twenty five dollars) and is non-refundable due at Final Payment Deadline on June 30, 2017. Check with BTC for further details.
We have covered a lot of information and you may have questions and/or comments. Call BTC and they will assist you. See you soon.
