This year we had the 1st annual Yellow Ball Golf Tournament. Maybe we can make this an annual event. We had a great (and humbling) time on the course.

Marine Corps Marathon
A few of us foolish fellows are thinking of participating tin this event. Take notice I said participate. As in walk a lot, etc.
Austin is definitely running in the marathon due to a challenge by his son! I did that once with my son and ended up jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 16,00 feet.
All the info about the reunion on this page are just suggestions. Let us know what you think and tell us of any suggestions you may have on Facebook.
The CAP reunion is taking place during the same time frame as ours. Most of us have the opinion that we should have our own reunion.
I think it would be great to do a couple of joint activities with the CAP guys. Some CUPP guys also attend CAP reunions. I went 2 years ago and had a great time. Fred Neilen has been attending them for 20 years.
This is just a thought. They are very organized and have even booked a block of rooms for their reunion.
The river cruise should definitely be for us CUPPers. And most of the others stuff too. just thought it would be nice to socialize with them.
