"Hello Everyone. Let me give y'all some information about the party and then pose some questions. First, I know that it's silly to point out; but remember to have your ID card with you. Access to the base is somewhat restricted and that ID card helps ease the way.
Next, the Charleston Club" is an "all ranks" club at Chasn AFB. Membership is not necessary for entry; but again, be sure to have your ID card with you. The club is located in Bldg 325 and it's phone# is (843) 963 3920. The phone # for the pax terminal is (843) 963 3082/3083 and you can get some flight infothere. It is not a Reserve training weekend at the AFB so there should be a lot of space at the BOQ's. Lodging aboardthe AFB is called the "Inns of Charleston" and that phone # is (843) 963 3806.
I'm not sure of their "Space-A"reservation policy. When I stayed there last week, the charge was $26.50 which ain't bad for the Chasn area. The Dining Facility Mgr at the AFB, MSGT Lotito has kindly offered his assistance and the use of some of the DF equipment.
We are currently planning on a simple meal menu, charcoal grilled "burgers 'n dogs", macaroni salad(both with and w/o tuna for you "purists"), pretzels, chips, pickles, olives, salt/pepper. We'll also have paper plates, napkins, etc there too. I think that it will be easier to make a couple of runs to the BX/Comm/Class VI store to get whatever beverages y'all wish rather than for me or Dirk to decide. I have reserved one of the picnic pavillions near"outdoor rec" and we'll have signs of sorts out to direct you.
That's where we're at so far. I'm open to
or questions and you should be able to "hotlink" to my e-mail above.
tell me what I've forgotten and/or what else you'd like to have. Oh,
more thing. Please let Dirk know how many to expect so that we have an
appropriate amount of food prepared. Thanks. I'm looking forward to
seeing the "GA crowd" again and to meeting new friends. Bob
