To Our USS Talladega Shipmates:
It is with much disappointment that we must inform you that the 2020 USS Talladega Reunion scheduled for September 22-26 has been postponed.
Your Officers/Trustees agree that this is probably not the year to be holding a reunion. With so many people fighting the Coronavirus
and with more people being encouraged to be “safer at home” (yes this is our group of
shipmates over 65), we all felt it best to postpone our reunion this year.
We have talked with the Air Force Academy and the Olympic Training Center. They both suggested it would be best to wait until 2021. The Academy is not even certain that visitors will be allowed on base in the fall.
The Hotel Elegante is disappointed we will not be with them this year, but look forward to welcoming our group next year. Room rates will be the same ($129 + tax) and they have already reserved our banquet room and hospitality room for next year.
IF YOU HAVE MADE RESERVATIONS AT THE ELEGANTE, THE HOTEL WILL AUTOMATICALLY
CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION. YOU DO NOT NEED TO CONTACT THEM AT THIS TIME. YOU WILL
NEED TO MAKE NEW RESERVATIONS NEXT YEAR.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SENT IN YOUR DUES OR PAYMENT, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN E-MAIL WITH INSTRUCTIONS.
Look for your reservation form around May 2021. Next years reunion will be September 21-25, 2021. We hope to see everyone next year in beautiful Colorado.
USS Talladega Reunion Association
The USS Talladega Reunion Association was formed to allow shipmates who have served aboard "The Trembling T" to gather, renew friendships and share their experiences. This has been accomplished with shipmates who served aboard the USS Talladega during World War ll, Korea and Vietnam eras.
Tuesday is sign in day.
Wednesday & Thursday include events such as sight seeing tours, learning more about historical or significant sights of the particular area we are visiting.
Friday involves a business meeting, free time and a banquet dinner. The dinner is the final event of the annual reunion.
Saturday everyone leaves for home. Also, there is a hospitality room which offers coffee, snacks and adult beverages.
The Reunion will be in Colorado Springs, CO.
