2020 Reunions

Postby Delta75 » Sat Mar 07, 2020 4:00 am

Wondering if the virus fear will result in the cancelation of either the Branson 2 or 31st Infantry Regiment Reunion? If the responses to either or both reunions were not good before the virus scare, we can rested assured that they will be no better now....probably even worse. Thus a cancelation of either or both could certainly be blamed on the health concerns of all us old farts over 70, to whom the virus possesses a severe threat.

The 31st might have to make some adjustments to the that punch bowl thing. A corona witches brew if ever there was one. No hands in the punch bowl to retrieve the coin they used to put in it either. Buffets might be out as organized dining events. One bright side however, as a military event, they could outlaw hand shaking and just do saluting only.

All reunions related to the 6th of the 31st for 2020 have been canceled. Save your money and contact some old brothers you used to serve with all those many years ago and chew the fat. It's all that a reunion is good for anyway.... besides actually seeing how much everyone has aged and shaking their hands and slapping their backs. Of course we may never be able to do that again in our lifetime. It all depends on if science can find a pill for the pandemic or not. We might start by electing someone other than Trump in November to improve the chances of that.

That brings something else to mind about actual talking to people face to face. Social grace generally prevents talking about politics in live face to face conversations so nobody gets in an argument about who loves or hates Trump.

One thing some of you could do. Organize a video skype chat. It's great fun and doesn't cost anything. You could just invite a circle of friends from your old company or platoon or whatever. If you want to see how it works let me know what your skype handle is and I can invite you to the Thursday night chats that a handful of us have been having for a lot of years now.

Send me your Skype handle and a short message if you are interested to niner@6thofthe31st.com
