Heads up for bubbleheads in the DC area:
N87 hosts a monthly social gathering for submariners in the N87 spaces at the Pentagon. This month's event is this coming Friday, 2/27/09, from 1500-1700.
If you're in the area, I encourage you to attend. I always end up running into some old shipmate or classmate that I haven't seen in ages. It's a great place to relax with a cold beverage, swap some sea stories and catch up with old friends.
If you need directions, drop me an email.
Submarine Ball Update
As promised, here is the flier for the DC area 2009 Submarine Birthday Ball.
(Click on image to enlarge)
I have the flier in MS Word format if you would like for me to email it to you.
I have received a couple of email questions about the ball. Here are the answers for anyone else who has the same questions:
1. Where do you buy tickets?
Answer: It's on the flier.
2. What type of dress is appropriate for ladies to wear when the guys wear dinner dress blues?
Answer: See my wife's post on that topic.
Friendly reminder / public service announcement: NOW would be a good time to try on your dinner dress blues and see if they still fit or if you have all the pieces and parts. Uniform shops aren't exactly conveniently located around here.
Need a date? I don't know if Craigslist works as well here as it did in Hawaii, but you could give it a try. :-) (See last year's post on that topic.)
