The purpose of the RAYUNION 2017 is to get old friends and shipmates back together. The Hospitality room is provided as a central meeting place and a place to hang out. Other than the banquet and the other activities listed, it is all free time for you to get together and do things outside of the hotel if you feel the desire. The Hotel is centrally located Downtown with many things available to you within walking distance. I encourage you to use the visitnorfolktoday.com and their contact # is 1-800-368-3097. There is a ton of stuff to do if you are so inclined.
Also, The Hospitality room has audio /video capabilities that we intend to use during the hours that it is open. If you have videos or want to create a slide show or something to show everyone, bring it and we will show it so everyone can enjoy it. If it is something special we can also schedule it for a certain time ????
If you have questions or comments on anything you have read, let Chew know. He will answer any e-mails that he receives at firstname.lastname@example.org
River Boat tour: We are currently having discussions with WWW.Navalbasecruises.com about their river cruise that includes the naval base.This boat departs and returns from the Nauticus location which is about 3 blocks from our hotel and the same pier as the Battleship.They are willing to extend a group discount to us for the cruise itself for $20.00 for those who have input your names BEFORE 01 APRIL 2017.
This is the buffet menu for the banquet….. and here is the dress code for the RAYunion:
No jeans or T-shirts at the banquet. Chew will be wearing dockers and a Hawaiian shirt. Coyote will be wearing slacks, blazer, and open shirt.
