CAFACAFA will be hosting the annual Airborne Memorial Weekend in Petawawa this year. The weekend includes the Annual General Meeting of CAFA, a dinner dance for CAFA and any interested ARAC members and a re-dedication of the “Into Action” statue which is also known as Iron Mike (or Iron Dick by some) that was formerly at the main gate to CFB Petawawa. The statue was moved to the grounds of the Airborne Forces Museum and will be re-named as the Canadian Airborne Forces Memorial.

    For the reunion timeframe, the Marriott Courtyard at Jasper and 99th is available for $119 per night. Being a traveller, using points equals free, so thought if there were others who stay at Marriotts you should know about this hotel. It is about 2.5miles from the Reunion Location. I’ll be flying into Edmonton International likely early afternoon and renting a car if anyone needs a lift to the hotels on that Thursday.
