Traveling Dolphins/Camaraderie

Posted 9/21/2014

 

Base Commander Sends

Hello all , I hope this finds you doing well. Thanks to all who attended the meeting Tuesday night. Good times. Well, as advertised, we are going after the Traveling Dolphins next week. Leading the way is Western District 4 Commander Jim DeMott. Here are 2 e-mails I received from Jim.

I plan on going to the Rogue-Umpqua Base meeting on Friday, September 28th.  Meeting starts at 1100.  I plan on leaving here on Thursday evening, September 27th, somewhere between 1800-1900, and driving there or close to it, and spending a night in a hotel.  The meeting is in Grants Pass.  I plan on returning home after the meeting on Friday.  Rogue-Umpqua still has the Traveling Dolphins, and their Base Commander has an idea that members of Blueback Base will be there.  I can take three people comfortably.  I will be looking to stay at an economical (cheap) hotel.  If any one is interested, they can let me know. 

The meeting information is as follows: Taprock Northwest Grill (Evergreen Room), 971 SE 6th Street, Grants Pass, Or 97526.  Meeting date is Friday, September 28, and starts at 1100.  There is a buffet lunch, which costs $17.00 (actual cost is $20.00, and R.U. Base pays the $3.00 difference). Got an e-mail from Ken Earls today.  He needs a head count to give to the place by Monday afternoon - I would like to give him a reply by this weekend.

 Okay, so as of now, Jim has room for 2 more people in his vehicle. We are looking for additional individuals to join us.The rules state one base officer and 2 members in good standing are required to capture the dolphins, so we need a couple more individuals. More is better.  If you have a good size vehicle and feel like joining us, please let us know.  The exact time of departure has not been decided yet. Jim and I are researching  hotels.

It is time to bring the Dolphins home. As you can see, we may have competition from the Blueback Base. This will be a good time for camaraderie and meeting with other shipmates and submarine veterans. Please contact Jim or me A.S.A.P. if you are interested, have any questions or concerns, so we can plan accordingly. As I receive more details and information, I will share with the membership.

Let's do this Bremerton Base Subvets Proud and in Style. Thanks for your time.
