Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station
We are excited about scheduling our convention during the weekend of 15 November at the Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS). They have a newly opened waterfront convention center that we have booked for that weekend. Lodging on the base is available. We expect that prices for meals and lodging will be less than the Atlantic Beach hotel. A flyer and more information will be available in a few weeks.
Activities close by include an on-base golf course, 20 minutes to New Bern and 30 minutes to Ft. Macon, the NC Aquarium, Beaufort and Morehead City.
Please get the word out. Again, this is open to all chapter members their families and friends. Past military service is not a requirement to attend.
