1. Bill Brinkman has arranged with the USS Razorback SS 394 to schedule our own special “ Sleep over Night “ on Thursday November 5. We will have the sub all to ourselves which means we can show movies in the Crew Mess in the After Battery and spend more time exploring the sub. The sub does have a regular toilet and most important “ AC and Heat”. We have sleeping available for up to 40 Attendees. We can accommodate 35 in the After Battery ( see the picture of the men and women in the bunks on the cover ). In addition, we have the Chiefs Locker available for 5 bunks in the Forward Battery.

Note that we have a tour of the USS Razorback that November 5 morning , so you can check out where you want to sleep later that night, The Razorback folks will supply pillows and sheets. You should bring your own blankets ( and pillows if you wish ) or sleeping bags , change of clothing ,medicines , personal hygiene items , flashlight , and wear closed toe shoes.

Also the Razorback folks provide a Continental breakfast on the morning of November 6 which includes coffee, tea, juice, donuts.

Our Business meeting is at 10 AM November 6 , so the sleepover folks have time

to get back to the Crowne Plaza Hotel after the continental breakfast on the sub.

The cost of this Optional Sleepover is $ 40. ( Make out checks to USS Seapoacher ). Just in case, Bill is taking your verbal reservations ( 512-255-0285 or seapoacher @att.net ) in case we get more than 40 folks signing up.
