3 Cdo Reunion Sit Rep

I just received more information on the 3 Cdo reunion and wanted to take this chance to pass it on. The cost will be $5 cash for an individual and $10 per family payable at the DZ reception table. They have prepared for a max of 300 people, so keep this in mind if the event is more popular than expected. Any money collected above the cost of food and events will be donated to the Airborne Museum.

Current CF members wishing to jump must have there unit CO’s permission to conduct an occasional parachute descent during this event and attend the para refresher. To get to the DZ stop and sign in with range control. DO NOT park on the highway 17 and walk in! This is a hazard and you will be towed.

At the DZ there will be activities for the whole family and it will be a dry event. Downstairs at the Kyrenia club will be open all day for those that want to grab a beer and tell stories. Ensure you bring insect repellent and sun screen as there is very little shelter on the DZ anymore.
