Reunion Update

For those who are attending the June 2020 mini-reunion (which is being held in lieu of the 2020 Blackhorse Association Family Reunion), everything is a go.

As things begin to settle down with the pandemic, it is our hope that people will get out and enjoy life again. The mini-reunion is one exciting way in which you could do that.

If you’re thinking about attending, please review your schedule, your health, and your finances. And if you have the time, are without health limitations, and can afford to attend, please register with AFR and make your reservations with the Elegante (all info can be found at www.blackhorse.org/reunions).opens in a new window

If you previously cancelled your registration and reservation for the BHA Family Reunion, the Association asks that you reconsider and think about signing up for the June mini-reunion.


For Those Looking for Something to do During Lockdown

The Blackhorse Association is not affiliated with the links below, but they might be worth a look and should at least generate some remembrances of the Regiment’s time on the East-West German Border!
