Some updates on things:
(1) The nominations received (so far) for base offices are as follows:
Dave Bowman, FTB1(SS), PhD, MCRP, FCS, MTS
Chief of the Boat
Nominations will be taken on the floor at the November General Meeting, prior to the vote (as applicable). Please note that the election will take place at the November General Meeting (11/20)
(2) This Friday evening (10/29) will be the first Base Social at the Fleet Reserve from 1500 – 1800ish. Steve Corcoran has done a great job working with the Fleet to set an exciting menu. Again, this is purely a social event, NOT a “meeting.” Feel free to bring a guest, especially any potential members! I hope to see you there.
(3) The Auburn Veterans Day Parade is a GO. The parade will be held on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6 at 11am in Auburn. We will be participating along with the Seattle and Blueback Bases. Unfortunately, our float will not be ready in time, but the Blueback Base is bringing their float.
We were unable to secure a Navy van for transportation, so we will be carpooling from the Fleet Reserve with an planned departure time of NLT 0800 on 11/6. I can carry five in the Subaru, and Paul Theisen has said that he can take five as well in his Escalade.
If you plan to drive yourself, let me know as I have the directions and parking information available (if you need them).
Thank you for your attention to these matters and your involvement in USSVI Bremerton Base!
