Mike Rigdon Albuquerque 2012 reunion photos


Available in the Ship Store! $10.00 +s/h

The combined reunion is history. The Stoddert and the Jupiter crews melded wonderfully. After the first day you could not tell one from the other. Both dinners were great and the banquet was capped off with the 50/50 drawing, a raffle with a total of 55 prizes being awarded and an auction to raise money for the association. In the 50/50 drawing, all winnings were given back to the association. A very heart felt thank you to the winners.
It is not too early to start planning for the next reunion. It will be in Seattle, WA. in late Sept. /early Oct. The exact dates will be published soon. And remember, the 2014 reunion will be in Hawaii. The planning for that one is already under way.
Ron Zorn reports he found a charging cord in his luggage when he got home. If you are missing one, we may have found it. Contasct Ron Zorn if it is yours. Or contact me at
