San Antonio was the site of the 2017 Reunion, September 27 - October 1, 2017
Our hostess (with the mostest): Liz Grotz
Reunion committee members: Bob Januzzi, Ed Buyniski, Dennis Makuta and Liz Grotz
We stayed at The Drury Plaza Hotel, Riverwalk, close to great restaurants and sites to see. We had a busy schedule of activities which included a Guided Missions Tour to Mission San Jose and San Fernando Cathedral, followed by a River Cruise. We visited Fredericksburg and the Nimitz Museum, and of course, Luckenbach, TX. What a treat for all! We had our business meeting on Saturday (minutes of the meeting below). Our reunion banquet was held at Texas De Brazil, with our guest speaker for the evening Lt. General Darryl Roberson. We all enjoyed spending time with dear friends and new acquaintances. Thanks, all, for a great reunion!
Minutes of the 39th Association Business Meeting, Sept 30, San Antonio TX
President Bob Januzzi presided over the business meeting of the 39th TCS Alumni Association on September 30. The primary discussion concerned the future of the organization, as the attendance at annual reunions continues to diminish. All agreed that those who come enjoy it so much, that we should continue to hold them even if only a very few attend.
The most popular idea was to build a relationship with the Troop Carrier/Tactical Airlift Association. (www.troopcarrier.org) and piggyback our reunions with theirs. Ricky Davidson has attended some of their meetings and made a presentation to the group of his impressions. Their next meeting will be at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio, October 11-14, 2018. We decided to have our next reunion to coincide with this. Ed Buyniski, Mike Hudyma and Bob Januzzi will make a report to the group with ideas about how we might proceed.
As the final item on the agenda, Bob Januzzi passed the presidential gavel to Mike Hudyma and Terry Enderland. Terry was elected Vice President to succeed Mike in 2 years. Bob had a very successful term with two great reunions in Portland, OR (2016) and this year in San Antonio. TX. Thank you to Bob for your time and effort; it was appreciated greatly by everyone. He was aided this year by Liz Grotz who worked tirelessly on the scene in San Antonio. Thanks to you, too, Liz.
If anyone who was unable to attend this year's reunion has any ideas on how we should proceed in the future, please post them as a comment on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/39tas/. Mike Hudyma will review them with his committee.
