This year we will gather in Colorado Springs, Colorado in mid-October. Our hotel is the Embassy Suites Colorado Springs located about 3 miles from the United States Air Force Academy. Two airports are available: Colorado Springs Airport (COS) located 18 miles away with taxi and Uber service, and Denver International Airport (DEN) located 80 miles away. Complimentary shuttles are not available from either airport. The Embassy Suites is an all-suite hotel with both queen and king rooms. Our rate for either type is $155.00 plus tax totaling $174.38 per night with made-to-order breakfast included as well as a 7-day per week complimentary evening reception.
Reservations can be made by calling the hotel directly at 719-599-9100. Ask for the 93rd Bomb Group Association Reunion block. Our Point of Contact is Sheri Neely. Ask for her assistance if you encounter any diﬃculty. The negotiated rate is available three days before and after the reunion.
Please make your reservations as soon as you can. The rate will be available until September 23rd . Reservations can be canceled without penalty up to 48 hours prior. If you are considering attending, make your reservations now. You can cancel without penalty if your plans change.
Our theme this year is “The ‘Wild’ Blue Yonder” in recognition of the establishment of the United States Air Force Academy in 1954—70 years ago. We will develop the theme through presentations and speakers to explore the academy’s importance to today’s Air Force. Veterans of the 8th Air Force were advocates for the establishment of a school dedicated to the study of war in the air. If you receive this invitation and know of someone else who may be interested, please share the information.
The optional extension builds on the success of our optional extension in Boston in 2022. With only 3½ days available for our main event, we can’t begin to see all that Colorado Springs has to oﬀer. Our extension will include the Pikes Peak Cog Railway and the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. A more comprehensive draft schedule will appear in your next newsleter.
