I am working on a proposal for the ORA to bring the reunion to Pensacola in 2010.

We have a very ambitious and exciting schedule planned, and I am looking forward to hosting an incredible event here for ya'll.

Here's the question: How many of you are ORA members, and how many of the non-members would be willing to come to Pensacola for the event?

I am a member and look foward to Pensacola. I am sure the majority of members would vote for Pensacola.

I may be interested, I attended the memorial service before the reefing, and was a little dissapointed in the lack of representation from the air wing. but met some great guys from the ships company. There are associations for the various aircraft that flew off the O, you may be able to have them link to the reunion web site. Any plans for a dive expedition for crew members? I need a good excuse to finish my PADI certification. Another activity I find enjoyable is sailing, wife and I both sail. Not a member of ORA, but willing to join.

We will be planning on a dive trip or 2 out there during the reunion. Also planning on a topside visit to the site for the non-divers. We have a live feed underwater camera that will allow folks on the boat to see what she looks like below.

I too am a member of ORA. I'd love to go to a reunion held in Pensacola but since the time is so far away that all I can say for now is I'll be there "God willing and the creek don't rise".
