Shipmates, Friends and Family:

We just got home from the Thornback camp in the woods and drink beer outing in Arkansas, a very good time was
had by all.  We didn't drink as much beer as usual because Smitty wasn't there.  I just checked with Branson, we only
have 10 reservations at the Westgate Resort, I have 23 on the list that are planning to attend the reunion.

In the next week or so I will send out a sign up sheet.  We will have a sign up fee of $75 per person for those of you
going on the Branson Bell (this is a dinner and show deal), and $25 per person if you don't want the boat ride.  We
are planning a lot of free time (to go to shows etc. on your own).  We also are talking about a group eat on
Wednesday at some local eatery.

The Thornback Reunion will be in Branson MO. It will start Monday April 9, 2018 and run through Thursday April 12,
2018.  The Reunion Coordinator has contracted with the Westgate Resorts, 2201 Roark Valley Rd. Branson MO.
417.332.3557, to host our Reunion.  Rooms are $61.00 per night.  Make your reservations early and often, use
group code 62-877, because a deal like this is hard to beat.  

If anyone needs a detailed accounting of the Thornback reunion fund you can contact the accounting firm of   D. Rich
& L. Oil, LLC.  Or you can call me and I will answer all the questions you may have.  As always donations and loans
are always accepted.

Contact Dirty Rich if you have a complaint, contact barney if you are coming to the Thornback Reunion, or want to
send money, or just want to talk to him.

This info will be on the Thornback web site along with a picture of our group at the camp in Arkansas
