25th IDA Annual Reunion
**May 26, 2020 Update**
Several of you have inquired about the upcoming reunion in San Diego. As of today it is going to happen! Earlier this week, the sales manager of the Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside, our reunion hotel, and I had a long conversation regarding our reunion. They are looking forward to hosting our group. The hotel is actually operating during this difficult time because it is an official hotel for several airlines crews as well as some of our military. They have made adjustments to their cleaning routines including: sanitizing all surfaces several times a day; wrapping the remotes in the rooms with plastic each time a new guest takes occupancy; keys are sanitized in a bucket of sanitizer; free standing, hands free hand sanitizers are in the lobby and they observe the 6 foot social distancing rules and more. We believe October is far enough away that travel restrictions will be adjusted.
We are also working with our local tour operator. At this time we don’t know which of our tours will be available. However, please rest assured we will make whatever adjustments will be necessary to provide our members with a positive experience based on what is available while we are there.
I believe we will all enjoy being among friends and having fun, especially after so many weeks/months of social and/or physical distancing. Send in your reservations now. Remember, if you have to cancel your monies are refunded; and if we have to cancel, your monies will also be returned. Full reunion details appeared in the fall/winter 2019/2020 issue and are repeated in the spring issue. If you have any questions regarding any facet of the reunion, please contact us.
I’m looking forward to seeing you in San Diego!!
FYI – here is our updated information for Holiday Inn San Diego – Bayside: Here is the on-line booking link for your group. We look forward to welcoming the 25th Infantry Division Association guests this October!
Each year the Association sponsors a reunion. The reunion location is moved around the country each year to give as many members as possible an opportunity to attend.
