United States Air Force Airborne Radar & Surveillance Programs
1953 to Present
This historic gathering of the world's finest Airborne Radar & Surveillance
members (ground, air, civil servants and contractor representatives, and their
invited guests) from the Air Force's top AEW&C, RECON and ACW flying
organizations, past and present, is being held in Northern Nevada's Resort
Destination of Choice, the Silver Legacy in Reno, May 18-21, 2003.
This 1,720 room luxury hotel, resort, casino and convention facility already is
putting out the "Red Carpet" for our gathering. Since our initial
contact with staff personnel to the present date, these professionals have bent
backwards to make certain we have a convention that will live in our memories
forever. In this facility, attendees will experience an unparalleled offering of
restaurants, entertainment, casino action, and superb customer service.
Located in the center of eleven western states, Reno is the hub for west coast
recreation to include a variety of outdoor venues, and the dramatic offerings of
the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Rand McNally named the Reno/Tahoe area number one in the United States for
outdoor recreation - all of which will be available to attendees during their
stay. Superb nightlife, star studded entertainment, historic sites, magnificent
dining, and much more. There is no better place for historic sites and site
seeing than Northern Nevada. Attractions include the world famous Ponderosa
Ranch, Historic Virginia City, the National Automobile Museum, and of course the
beautiful, majestic Lake Tahoe.
It is therefore requested that you please show
your gratitude and advance thanks to the staff of the Silver Legacy for laying
out their "Red Carpet" to our organizations by considering them first
in your destination choice of stay for this event. The convention and meeting
planners of the Silver Legacy have gone above and beyond in making certain that
each and every detail pertaining to our event are carried out to our desired
expectations and complete satisfaction.
As you will soon see in this packet, the Reunion 2003 Committee has gone to
great lengths to ensure not only that this Reunion is one of the best you'll
ever attend, but also that all of these luring attractions are part of the
offerings during your attendance.
