2019 RUPA REUNION INFORMATION & REGISTRATION
It has been more than ten years since RUPA held a national event. We have decided it’s time to get together once more to renew old friendships, and perhaps make new ones. We are going to meet in Dayton Ohio, Tuesday October 1st thru Friday October 4th this year.
We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Fairborn, 2800 Presidential Dr., Fairborn, OH. We have a room rate of $111 per night plus tax, which includes breakfast. Call the hotel directly to the reservation department at (877) 390-5931 to make your reservation. You must identify yourself and request the group rate for RUPA, / Retired United Pilots Association. This will insure that you will receive the correct rate and that the association receives credit for your room in our block of rooms. This rate can apply three days prior and/or three days after the reunion with advanced reservations, which also includes complimentary parking. (Your spouse or significant other is welcome to attend. Additionally, if you would like to bring a family member or friend, they are also welcome.) The cutoff date for rooms at the hotel is 09/01/2019. The dress for the RUPA Reunion will be casual for all activities. The dinner dress will be business casual which means slacks and a nice shirt. For the ladies attending, please wear slacks/skirt and a nice top.
Oct1: Registration and Welcome Reception.
Oct 2: Breakfast at the hotel. Board the bus to visit the Wright Brothers Museums, to include the Wright Cycle Company and Visitors Center, Wright Company Factory, The Wright Brothers Aviation Center and the Huffman Prairie Field Interpretive Center. Lunch will be on your own at the Carillon Brewing Company featuring food and beverages that were popular in the Dayton area during the 1800’s. Dinner will be on your own.
Oct 3: Breakfast at the hotel. Board the bus to visit the United States Air Force Museum. There is so much to see here, one day will hardly do it justice. Free guided tours are provided. Lunch will be on your own at the museum. In the evening will be the RUPA banquet/dinner. It will be held at the Holiday Inn Fairborn in the Lindbergh/Earhart Room. Entertainment will be provided as well as a guest speaker and group photo.
Oct 4: Breakfast at the hotel and farewells.
Now, for all of this to work we need your cooperation. First, we would like you to register as early as possible so that we know if we have enough rooms in our block for everyone who wishes to attend. Second, we need to know how many of you will be going on the tours so we have enough buses for all. And third, we need to know how many will be attending the banquet/dinner. At the present time we have a Banquet Room reserved for 120 people, and that is a tight fit. A larger room is available but we have to know before it is spoken for.
If you plan to attend, please forward the registration form to John Gorczyca. Thank you in advance for attending. This reunion should be a wonderful experience for us all and we know you will have a great time.
Rich Bouska, and John Gorczyca, Co-Chairman
