Just to be clear, although this reunion message is appearing on the USS Midway Veterans website, it is meant to invite all veterans (and their guests) of the three Midway Class carriers -- USS Midway, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, and USS Coral Sea -- to the May 6-9, 2019 reunion in San Diego. Read below for important reunion details.
As you know by now, veterans of USS Midway, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, and USS Coral Sea, our joint reunion will be held May 6-9, 2019, in San Diego, CA. We are calling this reunion the 2019 Midway Class Reunion, a.k.a. the "Three Sisters" reunion. The Wyndham San Diego Bayside, just a few blocks from the USS Midway Museum, is our reunion hotel. We will be holding our Grand Banquet on the flight deck of the Midway on Thursday, May 9.
Midway Class veterans who plan to attend the "3 Sisters" reunion should be aware that the end of the $153/n room rate we negotiated with the Wyndham is fast approaching, and when the last of these rooms are gone the new rate will jump to $229/n. Due to high demand, the rooms we set aside for the reunion are being reserved at a much faster rate than we anticipated. So, Midway Class veterans, reserve your room ASAP if you want to take advantage of the present $153 rate.

Next select the "Make A Reservation" box and then select your room and the dates of your stay. You can cancel your reservation up to 72 hours before the reunion without penalty. To reserve your room by phone, dial 619-232-3861, then select "Zero" at the prompt to talk to a guest service agent. Be sure to tell the agent you're with the Midway Class Carrier reunion group.
