Make your plans early!! We have signed a contract with one of the finest hotels on the Las Vegas strip – the famous Venetian Hotel. Gus Flangas, who so superbly hosted our 2011 reunion, is once again leading the charge and coordinating all the events.
First – Gus has negotiated an incredible room rate per day of $100 for this magnificent hotel. That rate is available for 3 days prior and 3 days after the reunion (June 8th through June 16th) for anyone who wants to make it a longer experience in one of the most fun cities in America. All hotels on the strip charge a standard resort fee of $25 per room per day, which includes unlimited local and toll free calls, unlimited in-suite internet access, a complimentary daily newspaper per suite, daily access for two adults to the fitness center, and selected drink coupons per day. So – room rate plus resort fee equals $125 per day, still an amazing price considering the quality of the hotel. And, as always, so there are no surprises, no one can avoid the standard 12% tax.
Second – we encourage every attendee to make room reservations as early as possible – there is a cutoff date of May 12, 2015 to guarantee this special rate. The online reservation website is: https://resweb.passkey.com/go/RBLKH15 and the reservation telephone number is 877-385-3885 and be sure to tell the operator that you are part of the Blackhorse Association June 2015 booking.
Third – we go to Las Vegas every few years with the purpose of giving us veterans a chance to reconnect with the active regiment and allow the active officers, NCOs and troopers to participate in the reunion. We plan to visit the Regiment on Friday, the 12th of June, so please plan to arrive no later than Thursday, so that you will be ready to get on buses early Friday morning for the trip to Fort Irwin. There will be a golf tournament on Thursday afternoon – if you would like to play, please plan your arrival accordingly.
