When: Friday, August 22 – Sunday, August 24, 2014
Why: To reconnect with friends and make new friends, pass the paddle to the next generation of alumni – and have fun!
August 22 - 24 alumni from all over the country will be coming together on Moose Lake for the 2014 Reunion Rendezvous where we will celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Northern Tier program and 20 years of support by the Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association. We will celebrate with activities on base and in Ely, a picnic in Whiteside Park, and a banquet at the Grand Ely Lodge. Our biennial banquet will feature event speaker Kevin Callan “The Happy Camper.” Youth attendees will have the opportunity to tour and sleepover at the world-renowned International Wolf Center.
I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting their families. Many of us have made big changes in our lives over the past few years, getting new jobs, having kids, or retiring. I am eager to hear about everyone’s great life adventures, plans for the future, and sharing some of my own stories.
With all the exciting events planned for the coming reunion, we need some help to make the event the best that it can be. Volunteers are particularly needed to help out with a picnic in Whiteside Park and finding items for the banquet's auction. We will also need help with registration check-in and setting up at the banquet. If you would like to help make the reunion a great event, contact Karl Huemiller.
What your reunion registration includes:
* T-Shirt and banquet attendance are subject to availability. Late registrations may be affected.
- SAA/Northern Tier Anniversary Reunion T-Shirt* (Only available to those who attend the reunion!)
- Banquet at the Grand Ely Lodge*
- Meals though Friday dinner to Sunday breakfast
- Lodging at Northern Tier on Friday and Saturday night
- Saturday picnic at Whiteside Park and two museum or tour activities in Ely
In an effort to keep the reunion affordable there is a low all-inclusive price. In addition, to encourage recent alumni to join us, more "experienced" alumni have the opportunity sponsor a "fellowship" so younger alumni can afford to attend. Young alumni can learn more about applying for a fellowship on the registration site.
I hope to see you and your family in Ely at the reunion. It will be an event you will not want to miss.
