IMPORTANT Date changes for the 2023 Ripcord Reunion
To our Ripcord Association members,
We want to thank everyone for their patience while we resolved the Reunion Date issue caused by the Hotel in Springfield. Our reunion will be held beginning October 22nd through October 25th with departure on October 26th. If anyone registered with the hotel prior to the change in dates, I would ask that they call the Hotel and confirm their registration for the new dates. For those who already sent in their registration form and check to Peter Meloro, it will NOT be necessary to send in a corrected registration form. The cutoff date for Hotel Registration and the reduced room rate will now be September 20th, 2023.
We apologize for the confusion caused by this issue and look forward to seeing everyone in October. Please note the updated and corrected Registration Form attached and ask that you use this form when you submit it with your registration fee.
Registration forms and hotel reservations are on our website
