503rd Parachute RCT Association Reunion

Wednesday, September 12-Sunday, September 16th

Thatís right, itís not too late to make plans to attend the 2012 503rd PRCT Reunion.  It will be held Wednesday, September 12-Sunday, September 16th at the Holiday Inn Richmond Airport (Virginia).  The 503rd registration fee is $90.00 per person.  Contact Nancy Young (804)550-3354.  Room rate is $89.00 plus tax.  Contact the hotel (804)236-1111.

Arriving in Richmond by Train???

The Staples Mill Road station is the station you are looking for.  Unfortunately, the station is not in the 2 mile radius of the hotel shuttle.  You can get a taxi from the Staples Mill Road station for $35.00-$40.00.  If you are planning on traveling by train, please let me know the dates and times of your arrival and departure and hopefully I can put you in touch with other attendees that are arriving and departing around the same time so that you can share taxi expenses.
