January 2010 - USS Albacore 2010 Reunion

The Albacore Reunion Committee is pleased to invite you to the May 21-23, 2010 USS Albacore Shipmate Reunion. Thanks to assistance from the Friends of Albacore Committee, we are able to keep the cost of registering to a minimum. Shipmate registration is $20, and guests at $15 each. The registration desk and hospitality tent will be located on the grounds of Albacore Park and will be open on Friday (5/21) and Saturday (5/22) from 9am to 4pm.

On Friday evening we will have a traditional clambake dinner at Foster’s Downeast Clambake in York Harbor. The clambake starts at 5:45pm and will end at 9pm.

Based on feedback from several shipmates, we will be scheduling a Historic Tour of the Shipyard on Saturday morning. Please indicate on the attached registration form if you are interested in taking this tour. Since seating is limited, it will be first come, first served. Based on seating availability when you arrive, we will collect the $4pp fee at the Registration Desk.

We will be offering for sale a very nice three season jacket.  You can click here to see this jacket on the web (Jacket is the “Challenger"). Each jacket will have the Albacore emblem shown here embroidered on the left breast with the words US Submarine Service. The jacket will be Royal Blue with a Navy Blue liner and collar. The cost is $49 per jacket.

We will be using the VFW in Portsmouth for our Saturday banquet. The banquet is being catered by Shaw’s and will be buffet style. We will start with cocktails & hors d’oeuvres at 6pm and food service beginning at 7pm.  At the conclusion of the banquet we will be raffling off some very nice items. One of the items is a model, professionally done, of the Phase 3 configuration of the Albacore.

We will have our Sunday brunch from 10am to noon at the Tirante Tavern (formerly the O Club) on the base.

Please print off and complete the registration form (download PDF). Please make out the check to “Friends of Albacore Reunion” for the total amount you owe. Send both the completed registration form and check to Frank Lyons, 85 Pancake Hollow Dr., Wayne, NJ, 07470. If you have any questions, please call Frank at (973) 735-4439.

We would appreciate receiving your response no later than February 26, 2010.

Sincerely,

Albacore Reunion Committee
