  • 2006 HMH-463 Squadron Reunion Dinner

    Former Marines from HMH-463,

    We have had to change the location of the HMH-463 Squadron Dinner from the Fort Worth Plaza Hotel to the Holiday Inn North in Fort Worth. The reason for the change is the hotel closed for restoration after it's sale on March 1, 2996. The Fort Worth Plaza's Hotel catering staff been broken up and has move on to other hotels in the area. One of these hotel is the Holiday Inn North. The Holiday Inn North hotel is on JD Barber's new list of Pop-A-Smoke Reunion Hotels that he just published. JD is working with the Fort Worth Visitor & Convention Bureau to set up a shuttle that will move people from the convention center to these outlying hotels on his new hotel list so transportation should not be an issue.

    I have talked to the catering manager at the Holiday Inn North and she has agreed to provide the same dinner menu at the same price as we were going to get at the Fort Worth Plaza Hotel. Based on this information the Squadron board of advisors has selected the Holiday Inn North as the location of our Squadron Reunion Dinner. It is also recommended that we use the Holiday Inn North as our Squadron hotel unless you have already made hotel reservations at another hotel.

    Listed below is the information regarding the hotel.

    HOLIDAY INN FT. WORTH NORTH Cost $79 6.4 MILES
    2540 MEACHAM BOULEVARD
    FT.WORTH, TX 76106
    817-625-9911
    Code: USMC/Combat Helicopter Association (mention when registering)

    The notification e-mail below has been modified to reflect the change of location of our Squadron Reunion Dinner.

    UPDATE: To the previous message!

    Marines and Friends,

    A reminder that we have just over three weeks to go before the HMH-463/462
    Squadron Reunion Dinner in Fort Worth, Texas.


    The Squadron Reunion Dinner is being held at the

    Meacham Boulevard, Fort Worth TX 76106. There Telephone: (817) 625-9911
    Fax: (817) 625-5132.
    We are encouraging the HMH-463 folks to stay at the
    Radisson Hotel Fort Worth North (Formally Holiday Inn North). This will
    make access to the Squadron Reunion Dinner easier and more convenient.
    There will be bus transportation provided from our hotel to and from the
    down town convention center were the large USMC/Combat Helicopter
    Association (Pop-A-Smoke) reunion is being held so transportation should not
    be a problem.

    To date we have 64 people signed up for our Squadron Reunion Dinner. We
    need a minimum of 65 folks to break even for the dinner. Please contact
    HMH-463 folks who have not signed up for the reunion dinner and encourage
    them to attend. There are several folks who are registered for the
    USMC/Combat Helicopter Association reunion who have not signed up for the
    Squadron Dinner.

    HMH-462 folks will be joining us for the dinner. John Nicholson is their
    Squadron Coordinator and has asked them to sign up directly with me for the
    event.

    The cost for our Reunion Dinner and associated Squadron events is $49.00
    for each person attending the Squadron Dinner.
    This price includes the Red,
    White, and Blue American Flag/USMC insignia lapel pin. Additionally, we
    have obtained a door prize to be given to one lucky guest at our dinner.
    It is a 12 inch tall artist replica of the Marine Corps flag raising on Iwo
    Jima. On top of that we have a scale model of a CH-53 A/D provided Mr.
    Pogy Pogany, a former HMH-463 crewchief who is now working for Sikorsky as
    a Technical Representative. This model will be raffled off at the
    HMH-463/462 Squadron reunion dinner.

    Our Squadron Dinner will be a site down affair with the doors opening at
    17:30 and dinner being served at 18:30. Our dinner will be located in the
    Meacham Room at the Radisson Fort Worth North. In addition Skip Burns has
    arranged to have three friends provide live country music - Texas style -
    during the social hour before our Reunion Dinner. In return we will provide
    the band dinner.
