*UPDATE* PRINCETON PLANKOWNER AND MINESTRIKE CREW REUNION POSTPONED TO JUNE 9-11, 2023

*UPDATE*

HELLO PRINCETON SHIPMATES!

Your Princeton Coordination Team continues to work diligently to prepare for the upcoming Reunion in 2023

As announced about 6 weeks ago, it’s been decided to move our Reunion date from February back to June 2023.  It has been settled that the NEW Reunion Dates will be the weekend of June 9-11, 2023 with the Princeton Tour being scheduled on Saturday, June 10th with the Banquet that same evening.

The main reason of postponing remains to ensure CG59 will be in port for us to visit and this date gives us the best chance to be able to visit our ship quite possibly for the last time before her decommissioning.  This will also giving us adequate time to find all our shipmates, Plankowners and/or Desert Storm veterans, a potential 500 shipmates are eligible to be invited to this Reunion (and we have as yet not been able to contact all of them).  WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH THIS, AS THERE ARE MANY SHIPMATES WE DON’T HAVE CONTACT INFO FOR.  We are enlisting those we can to let us know soonest if they are in touch with shipmates we might not know about. If you are one of those people, please let us know.

We appreciate all of you who may have already begun to make plans to come in February being flexible and willing to switch your plans to the new date.   We are still negotiating with Hotels in the Downtown San Diego area to reserve a block of rooms for us and/or to host our Dinner Banquet the Saturday we plan to visit the Princeton.

We are targeting to have this hotel/banquet location to be finalized by mid-January so you can make your final travel plans and reservations accordingly.  We will be providing those details as soon as they are available so stay tuned.  This will include providing a web-based tool to register and pay for the Banquet.  

This is going to be a great event, and we want to see everyone there so help spread the word!
