APRIL 25th-27th, 2018

    This year we are visiting Jacksonville, Florida and staying at The Ramada Conference Center located at 3130 Hartley Road.  The phone number to make reservations is (904) 694-4303. Note that the reunion will be on Wednesday through Friday, rather than through the weekend.  All family and friends are welcome to attend; no one is required to be an USS ATKA crew member to be part of our reunion.

Room rates are $100.00 per night including all taxes, and include a “Southern Breakfast Buffet”.  We are committed to 20 rooms at this rate.  The rate is good for three days before and after the reunion. All rooms are ground level and the hotel is pet friendly.  Most major airlines fly into Jacksonville (JAX) There is no airport shuttle service, however, the hotel recommends using UBER or LYFT at about $20 cost.  Taxi fare is more expensive.  Make room reservations directly with the hotel.  Be sure to mention that you are with the USS ATKA group.  Credit Cards will not be charged until check in.  You will be billed 1 night if no show.

Total meal cost will be $130 per person including all taxes & gratuities for Wednesday, Thursday & Friday, $20 each day for kids 12 and under.
Those arriving Wednesday will be treated to “The Comedy Zone” where you will find new and old comedic entertainment, compliments of the hotel.  On Thursday we will tour Mayport Naval Station and have lunch at one of the clubs on base. After lunch a tour of historic Jacksonville sites. Cost is $50 per person including lunch.

We will also have our usual hospitality suite with beverages, snacks, the ship’s store & memorabilia.

The meal and tour money must be sent to Mike Kovacs no later than April 1st.   If you will not be able to send money by that time, PLEASE, PLEASE phone or e-mail Mike to let him know that you are attending because, he will not be available to receive money after April1.  Both meal and tour costs are based on a 40-person minimum, so we need as much participation as possible. As our group gets smaller each year, our power of negotiating becomes less effective. We have done the best we could hoping we can fulfill our contract obligations with the hotel, now we need and are counting on your support.

 If there are any questions or special needs, call Mike at (609) 506-7981.
