From all emails and comments received, the 2001 Branson Reunion was a huge success. Thanks to the hard work of the Planning Group, Bob Colley and Dallas Osterlie. We are currently building on that enthusiasm and interest to plan the 2002 Reunion to be held in Pensacola, Florida. An announcement will be published as soon as the site plans and agenda are finalized. Keep looking in the Library section to get the latest information.

Bob Colley wanted me to thank everyone for the great enthusiasm and contributions of those who were able to make the Branson Reunion. At the same time, he is trying to find a file that has all of the orders for shirts and hats, the Roster of attendees and a squadron patch that was unknowingly picked up by some one. So please check you baggage again and if you locate it, get a hold of Bob at  . You can also call him at (409) 935-0247 (evenings). His address is 1223 Sailfish, Hitchcock, Texas, 77563. As soon as he is able to recover the documents, then he can get the orders going to the correct people. 

When we enter all of the names we have, the Roster will have around 300 people listed that have been located. So far, around 85% of those located are alive, and of those alive, 72% have emails. This will be a year that the Squadron Roster will explode. Just remember to try to locate those five names Bob Colley challenged you with at the Reunion.

You are encouraged to send or contact the Webmasters, names of those you have contact with, to Bob Lightbody at or to me at .

Warm regards,

Bob Self and Bob Lightbody, Webmasters
