USS Caiman Reunion Details
Next Reunion - April 20-24 2020
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Our next USS Caiman (SS-323) Association Reunion is going to be in Albuquerque, New Mexico April 20-24 2020. Mark your calendars now.
The reunion will be at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We have a room rate of $99.00 a night including breakfast. We have a choice of rooms with a king bed or two queen beds. There is a 13.5% hotel tax so that brings it up to $112.37. The hotel is an open design with a southwest motif. We also have a choice between rooms around the pool or in the tower. All rooms are the same design. The hospitality room is on the top of the tower, so we have a view across the city. We have separate hospitality rooms and dining rooms this time. There is NOT an airport shuttle so if you fly in, use Uber or a cab.
The hotel is located near the junction of highways 40 and 25 with easy access from any direction. Parking is complimentary including empty RV parking. The hotel has two pools, one indoor and one outdoor, and an exercise room. WiFi is free throughout the hotel. Each room has Keurig coffee makers so bring your favorite pods. The rooms do not have refrigerators, but the hospitality room will have a large refrigerator. The bar and lounge have indoor and outdoor seating. The hotel has three restaurants. One is a fine dining steak house.
On Wednesday we will ride a bus to the Acoma Pueblo, a Native American Pueblo and National Historic Landmark. The Acoma tribe has inhabited the area for over 2,000 years. Many people still live there so we can see how they live and have adapted to the area. Acoma pottery & Native American crafts are for sale and several cultural exhibits are on display. After our tour we will board the buses and travel to a local casino for lunch and other entertainment.
Commander and Secretary/Treasurer are up for election at this reunion. Yeo and Smitty are running for re-election. Other nominations can be made at the meeting on Tuesday. Voting will be at the reunion luncheon on Tuesday. You need to be at the reunion to vote.
