India Company September 2013 Reunion News…
From Doc Bazan to all India Company Marines/Corpsman
Reunion in Arlington Texas Sept 19 2013.
I recently returned from a meeting with the Event Coordinator at the Sheraton Hotel in Arlington, Texas, the headquarter hotel for the 2013 India Company Reunion. We finalized plans for the hospitality suite, reception, and banquet.
Reunion will be held Thursday, September 19 to Sunday, September 22.
The cutoff date for room reservations at the special rate of $95.00 (plus taxes) is August 22. You can check out the hotel and make reservations via the following link. Details on this site are specific to our reunion. This rate is good for two days either side of the above reunion dates. For those without internet access you can book your reservations by calling Sheraton’s reservations at 1 800 325-3535 and reference ‘India Co 3/5 USMC’ to assure our reunion rate or copy this link into your browser and go online at: www.starwoodmeeting.com/StarGroupsWeb
For those of you flying into Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, the hotel operates a complimentary hotel airport shuttle which can transport you for the nine-mile journey. It operates daily from 6:30am – 9:30pm. Please contact the hotel directly at 817 261-8200 to schedule pick-up.
If you are flying into Dallas Love Field (served by Southwest Airlines), there is no complimentary hotel shuttle to the Sheraton. Googling “Dallas Love Field shuttle” will find you numerous companies that will be happy to deliver you to Arlington. The trip from Love Field to the Sheraton is 21.5 miles.
Both airports have the full complement of car rental companies if you want to have that independence.
The Sheraton Hotel is just minutes from many of Arlington’s favorite destinations including Six Flags Over Texas Amusement Park, Hurricane Harbor Water Park, Dallas Cowboys Stadium (Cowboys are planning the Rams with a 1:00 pm kick-off on Sunday), and Six Flags Mall. There are also numerous restaurants in the area.
The menu for the Saturday night banquet allows you the choice of three entrees: Sautéed Chicken Breast with Mushroom Madiera Sauce, Herb Roasted Pork Loin with Dried Cherry and Port Wine Demi-glace or Delicious Vegetable or Vegetable Pasta plate. All meals include Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Smoked Bacon and Cinnamon, Seasonal Mixed Vegetables, Garden Salad with choice of 2 dressings, Warm Rolls and Butter, New York Cheesecake with Strawberry Sauce, and Iced Tea Service. Each meal costs $35.00 which includes service charges and tax.
If any brothers need some help getting to the reunion or you know someone who does, just give me a call at 972-424-3713 (home) or 469-386-5526 (cell). You can also contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. No one else will know you called.
Please see Joe Holt’s email dated June 19 for details regarding the schedule and meal selection or contact me.
I look forward to seeing each and everyone one of you.
