It is with
great heartache that I have to announce that due to issues
beyond our control, the 2023 Reunion will have to be
cancelled. Much to our surprise, there has been very little
response from our members. As of now, after nearly 3 months,
we have a total of 9 registrations, 2 for the hotel.
I reached out to several dozen of

various ailments - often both spouses, age, long distance,
reunion is also on the same time as a large sports weekend
in Cleveland which will have mucho fans in town and

fast approaching. Toss all these together and the Board

that have registered, you must contact the hotel and cancel
your reservation to stop payment. (The Hampton Inn Downtown
– 1-800-HAMPTON). All payments received for the
dinner/meeting will be refunded from the ship’s treasury.
apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can be together
again in the near future.
meantime, be safe and stay healthy.
We are trying to complete an update of our membership email
list. Over the last few months, we have sent out bulk emails to
all our members; each time, many dozens of addresses currently
on file have bounced back as undeliverable (the list IS getting
shorter). To ensure that we can get information to you through
emails, we need to have accurate addresses. I would ask that all
members who have not received an email from the Tug Association
in the last 6 months to please go to the About section, click on
Contacts, click on Membership, and send me your current email
address. Thank you.
