Howdy Ghost Riders:

Just a quickie to let you know of any 'plans' for the reunion this far in the
process:

Don't forget the free shuttle from the Portland, Or airport (PDX) to the hotel.
Thrifty Car Rentals are our best bet for rental cars....we have an insider
there.
Our weather is in the 80's with little humidity so evenings may require a long
sleeve shirt but not likely.
Possible "Duck Boat" rides right from the hotel on the Columbia.
We will have one van for day tripping from Friday morning thru Sunday.
We have not gotten scheduled events with payments so we are depending on the
auction of items on Saturday night and pluggin' the donation jar in the
Hospitality Room to meet expenses for drinks, pizza and rental of the van and
hall for dinner.

AGENDA for Ghost Rider Reunion, Vancouver, WA. 5,6,7 and 8 August 2010:

guide service without accompanyment today.

Immediatly following Memorial Service will be a 'Business Meeting' to

to the happiness and wellbeing of the group.
Saying those goodbyes and parting company in the afternoon is remaining

Of interest: Fort Vancouver is a destination visit and is walking distance from
the Quay. A number of very good restaurants are within walking distance from
the Quay, along the Columbia River. Food is very good at the Quay but there are
other breakfast and lunch options nearby too that are less costly. The weather
averages 85 degrees this time of year. We are a BIG area so rental cars for day

the Hospitality Room or through Mike and Dana.
