As of June 5, 2020, there are discussions with the vendors to postpone the 2020 reunion until 2021. We suggest you do NOT register with either the hotel or the reunion itself until the matter is settled.
The Bomb Groups reunion is coming up in September. By now we have all heard much about Coronavirus and you may be concerned about registering to attend. However, with six months until the reunion, we are hopeful that this will pass and there are no plans to cancel the reunion. Should you register and find that you cannot attend, you can receive a full refund. In addition, your hotel reservation may be cancelled with no penalty up to 48 hours before your arrival date.
Planning is somewhat still in progress, minor changes are possible. Please check back here for updates. This itinerary is as of 3/9/20
