Reunion Update - Golf

Members of the 191st Assault Helicopter Company
I always enjoyed playing golf until I broke my back, after that no swing.

Harrell Guidry is in charge of Golf for the 2016 reunion. He said he will do his best that a good time will be had by one and all.
Contact Harrell:  kgid@gt.rr.com

So if you call yourself a Golfer, Duffer or just a Hacker come on out and play golf. I have a pair of clubs or two for loan (please do not throw them in the lake) or you may rent clubs at the course.

By the way did I mention we have hotel rooms available 3 days before the reunion starts and two days afterward at the quoted weekday rate just in case you want to make a vacation out of it. 

Expecting to see ALL of you and bring a few FRIENDS and FAMILY.



191st A.H.C. reunion goers

One of the great things about Las Vegas is the wide variety of entertainment all over town.

My wife is not a big fan of flowers or candy for Valentines Day so I took her to the Cross Roads Cafe to see Michael Grimm perform. He won Americas got talent a few years back. Lounge shows are all over town with some great entertainers. Tickets to most of these shows are priced under $35.00.

 The crossroads is in the House of Blues located inside the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The show is normally complementary and should you chose to eat dinner it will run under $60.00 for two of you with beverages and desert.

For those of you planning to come early or stay late for the reunion you just might want to find out where your favorite band of performer will be while you are in Las Vegas. Trust me your wife will like it better than flowers.

Tracie and I are working on getting a few complimentary tickets to some shows and you will find those updates on the WEB site. Bill will post them as we are able to secure them. Most of the tickets will most likely be for Thursday and Friday and possibly Wednesday for the ones who come early. When we post the ticket info it will be first come first served. You will need to respond to me not Bill in order to claim your tickets. This is just one of our goals and hopefully we can get it on.

Does your wife play golf? Well Vegas is the perfect spot to let her play a round of golf with you. Harrell Guidry is waiting to find out how many golfers to plan your fun in the sun while in Vegas.

Our speaker is Stan (THE MAN) Cherrie. The entertainment is that golden voiced tenor Kevin Kenny. The venue is fantastic and the reunion dinner is top of the line. The hospitality suite will hold about 60 to 75 people so there is plenty of room. The bar is self service with wine,whiskey and beer. Snacks,veggie trays and a few surprises await you.

So whats not to like? Air conditioned comfort with a heated pool, a gym if if really want it. 16 movies theaters,64 lanes to bowl on.  Food and booze available in the hotel 24/7 . And time with some of the best people you have ever known.

If you are in contact with the family of any former member of the 191st please ask them to come to this reunion to meet the brothers their loved one served with. All they need to do is go to our web page that Bill has setup and follow the instructions.

A Note from the Webmaster:

The response in registrations for our reunion so far is impressive, and I am pleased to see a number of registrations from folks that have not attended a reunion before.

I have just learned that during a previous reunion one of our 191st brothers felt left out, and could find nobody he knew.  As a result his first reunion would be his last.

We can't control who comes to these things, and we can't control how many of your old buddies will be there.

What we can control is the WELCOME HOME that everybody gets from all of us.

So get that pat on the back in gear, and the handshake working.  That's what reunions are for, and we all need a little of both.

See you in Vegas,
