AFTAC Alumni Worldwide Reunion 2015 Information

The next Air Force Technical Applications Center's World Wide Alumni Reunion is scheduled for 29, 30, and 31 May 2015 (WWR 2015). The Florida Alumni Chapter has a dedicated team of members making sure all the details are coming together. So far, we selected and contracted with the DoubleTree by Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront, 2080 North Atlantic Avenue, Cocoa Beach, Florida 32931. The phone number is (321) 783-9222. When you contact the hotel to make your reservations please ask for AFTAC Alumni Reunion, Group Code AFT. This will ensure you are given the group rate of $103.00 (plus applicable taxes) per night for a standard double room. Direct web hotel reservations can be made at:

Doubletree by Hilton Web Site

The various committees are currently negotiating several activities to keep our guests entertained while enjoying each other's company. On Friday, there will be early reunion registration for our guests. We are planning a private narrated tour of the Cape Canaveral AFS and the Air Force Museum. You will get to see the launch operations center and maybe even a rocket on the launch pad. In addition, those who want to can enjoy a round of golf on one of our beautiful area golf courses. Anyone interested in doing other activities may contact Mr. Andy Anderson (see below) for gambling cruises, off shore fishing, or discount theme park tickets. Later, we can all enjoy a spectacular ice breaker with lots of good food and drink. If that's not enough entertainment for you in one day, the Hospitality Room will be open for most of the afternoon and after the ice breaker for more camaraderie. Our Hospitality Room is located on the 2nd floor of the hotel in the Oceanview King Suite and adjoining room. Saturday starts you off with an AFTAC Briefing in the new building auditorium. One of our alumni members has graciously offered to provide aerial tours of Patrick AFB, the new AFTAC building, and possibly the Cape if no launches. There is a slight fee to cover his costs but what a deal. How exciting to be one of the few who can view the base and new building for above. We carved out some time for those beach goers to enjoy our fabulous beaches and soak up some of this Florida sun. Saturday night is your time to dress up, enjoy more camaraderie, and appreciate a marvelous dinner at the DoubleTree. Our banquet will feature Chef specials not available on the menu. Special entertainment is planned to end the evening. Again, the Hospitality room will be open before and after the banquet. The hotel catering staff has graciously offered discount coupons for their buffet breakfast both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday morning we plan to set aside a small room off the dining room for our use. There is no set time to meet, at your leisure join whoever is there. So SAVE THE DATEs. Plan to join us to reunite with friends and family. Come Thursday so you can enjoy the tour on Friday. See you there. *The reunion registration web page will be coming soon! Keep checking the FL Alumni Chapter web site. Click on the link to Florida AFTAC Alumni Site at bottom left of this web page.
