Operation Desert Lights

February 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - February 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

Well you might have seen some chatter about Operation Desert Lights.  We will be heading to Las Vegas, NV on Feb 14th – 16th for our 35th Anniversary Reunion.  We are working with a few hotels to see who can give us the better rack rates, amenities, and perks.  Detail will be coming soon and we will be posting a group block rate at one of the hotels in Las Vegas.  We want to keep this informal and somewhat loose.  This will give everyone the opportunity to reconnect with each other and still be able to experience all that Vegas has to offer.

We have three venues planned.  The first is a Welcome Reception and General Membership meeting on the 14th at 1700 Hrs..  This will be held at the Leatherneck Club in China Town.  If you have not been here before, it is a must see.  Cost of $25.00 Per Person will be required to attend.  We are working with the club to provide beverages and chow with this fee.

A second venue will be held on 15th.  Currently we are looking at a venue called Adventure Combat Operations.  We will be picked up in Blacked out 5 ton trucks from the hotel and taken to the Combat Op area.  There we will get suited up, receive some weapons (Airsoft) and training, and then enter the range.  Once on the range we will engage a Zombie Apocalypse that is interactive.  This is about a 2 and a half hour production.  Currently the cost for this venue is 169.00 Per Person.  We are in talks with ACO to see if we can get reduced fees.

Our final event will be a luncheon at Margaritaville on the 16th at 1400hrs.  The cost of this event is $105.00 Per Person and includes an appetizer or salad and an entrée.  It also includes a 3 hour Premium open bar.  During this time you can continue to share and reflect upon the memories of the weekend before leaving later that night or following day.

OPERATION DESERT LIGHTS RAFFLE… We are going to try and raise a few dollars to offset some of the costs associated with this reunion.  If you go to the event page for Operation Desert Lights you will see we have a raffle going for a free 3 night stay in Vegas the week of the reunion in one of our block rooms.  Tickets are $10.00 each or if you buy 3 tickets at $30.00 you will receive a complimentary 4th ticket.
