3/26 Battalion Reunion at Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut 8-11 July 24

Rooms reserved at $179 night before taxes until 10 June 24. Based on previous attendance figures, I reserved a block of 35 rooms.   Reserve your room at https://book.passkey.com/go/VETSR24.

Arrive and register on the afternoon of 8 July, have a bus tour of local attractions on the 9th, and a banquet on the 10th. Since the casino is heavily regulated by our state Government, we are unable to bring our own beverages to the hospitality room but there will be a cash bar available.

On the 9th, the bus tour will take us to Olde Mistick Village Olde Mistick Village | Shop | Dine | Events | Theatre in the morning through noon, where you can shop, dine, or visit the aquarium (on your own) Mystic Aquarium. We will then go to Mystic Seaport for 2-3 hours where you can visit a recreated 19th century New England Seaport Village.  I have arranged for group rates which are included in the price of the bus. Seaport Village – Mystic Seaport Museum – Visit Mystic, CT Today!

On the 10th, you are free to tour on your own or just visit with fellow 3/26 members.  The submarine Nautilus and an excellent museum are about 20 minutes distance from the Mohegan Sun.  Other local sites include the mansion and grounds at Harkness State Park. I would encourage you to check out Must-see attractions Southeastern Connecticut, Connecticut – Lonely Planet for other sites worth seeing.

Dinner price includes price of the dinner, 21.5% service charge, and 7.35% state tax.  Entrée choices are (1) Chicken Parmesan with Fettuccini Alfredo and Seasonal Vegetable or (2) Stuffed Shrimp with Creamy Orzo and Seasonal Vegetable.  All dinners will be served with a Caesar salad and a cheesecake dessert.  Rolls, coffee, and teas are also included. If you have dietary restrictions or want a vegetarian meal, please let me know when you register.

If you plan to attend, please use the registration form below and mail to me. If there are more than two attendees in your party, please use another registration form.  Please make the check out to Walt Whitesides.
