2019 AFTAC Alumni Worldwide Reunion

2019 AFTAC Alumni Worldwide Reunion Update a/o 15 April 2019

This update includes new and changed information from the previous update in February 2019, but that text which is still important and valid follows this new information.

Our most significant new item is that the AFTAC Commander, Colonel Chad Hartman, has accepted the invitation to be our guest speaker at the Saturday evening dinner, and the AFTAC Command Chief, CMSgt Michael Joseph plans on attending. In addition to these two, we now have 103 people on our attendee listing. However, several of these on the listing have not sent in their registration forms with payment and the due date on the registration form is 15 April.

So, we have extended the due date two more weeks to 6 May. If you plan on attending the reunion please get your registration form and payment in the mail ASAP. After 6 May we will be ordering materials and providing the hotel with the number of attendees so they can plan and make the necessary preparations. Also, the hotel has already increased our reunion room block, so if you plan to stay at the DoubleTree, please make your reservation ASAP while rooms at our special reunion rate are still available. Another change we have made is to cancel the casino bus trip to Black Hawk due to lack of interest. We have only one person signed up for that excursion so it is now cancelled. If you are a fan of MLB, the Colorado Rockies are hosting the Padres at Coors Field in downtown Denver on Thursday evening, 13 June. 2019 AFTAC Alumni Worldwide Reunion Update a/o 15 Feb 2019

This reunion is sponsored by the Colorado AFTAC Alumni Association and is taking place at the Denver-Aurora DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton located at 13696 East Iliff Place, Aurora, Colorado 80014. The reunion is open to all current and former members, family members and guests of AFTAC, its predecessor organizations, subordinate units and associated units. A block of rooms has been reserved for the nights of 13, 14, & 15 June 2019 at a special rate of $119.00 (plus tax) per night and includes a full breakfast buffet (limit two per room). This special room rate is available using group code AFA and will be available until 24 May 2019 or until the group block is sold out, whichever comes first. Additional room nights for check-in beginning on 10 June and check-out as late as 19 June may be booked at the same rate on a space available basis. Our room block consists of the standard 1-King Bed, a few of the 1-King Bed Larger Mobility Access with Tub, and some 2-Queen Bed rooms which may be booked at the AFTAC rate on a space available basis. If you have any problems booking rooms using our special rate group code AFA please call the hotel Sales Coordinator, Tina Le, at 303-337-2800 ext. 157 or Direct 303-614-0788. We very strongly recommend making reservations early so we can request increases to the room block before additional rooms become unavailable. Booking a reservation is a simple process using the AFTAC Alumni Web Page provided by the DoubleTree when available, the public DoubleTree website, or telephone: www.doubletree3.hilton.com (Enter Group Code AFA) or call the Denver-Aurora DoubleTree desk at 303-337-2800

There will be a golf tournament (cost is $40 each) on Friday morning, 14 June. Also check out www.wingsmuseum.org and www.forneymuseum.org for visits. The informal meet and greet icebreaker with Hors D'Oeuvres and cocktails (cash bar), along with briefings by local AFTAC unit personnel, is Friday evening. The formal dinner banquet and ceremony is Saturday evening, 15 June, along with special guest speakers. Our hospitality suite in the hotel will be open starting at noon on Thursday, 13 June. It will be closed during the Friday icebreaker and Saturday dinner. An informal Sunday morning farewell breakfast at the hotel may also be added if there is sufficient interest. Again, please make your room reservations early because June is a very popular time for visitors in Colorado. NOTE: All existing alumni reservations previously made using the Group Rate Code AFT will be updated to AFA by the hotel and the assigned reservation confirmation numbers remain the same. Please go to the www.aftacaa.us website for current reunion updates and registration form. If you have any questions or need more info, send an email to: President@aftacco.org and Treasurer@aftacco.org
