2022 Big Safari Association Reunion Registration

It is time to “save the date” and begin your planning to join our Big Safari family event 20 – 23 April 2022 in San Diego, CA.  We have been working hard to get everything ready, and I am excited that we are going to have a great time in the La Jolla area.  As part of our Reunion theme, ‘Big Safari Support to the Predator and Reaper Programs,’ we have set up a tour of the General Atomics facility.  Our banquet speaker, former USAF Chief of Staff General John Jumper, has offered to, during this tour, provide us with some of his perspectives during the initial efforts by Big Safari to weaponize the Predator aircraft.  Hearing the senior USAF leadership’s thinking during those pivotal efforts should be, I think, extraordinarily interesting.

Because of golf scheduling, we are forced to change our “normal” schedule, and will be doing the General Atomics event on Thursday the 21st, followed by Golf and other San Diego excursions on Friday the 22nd.  Also on the 22nd, we will be offering an amazing dinner cruise on San Diego bay.  I sense that our Reunion golfers will be happy playing the Torrey Pines course!  And, those not golfing, but wanting to visit the sites of San Diego, will have several planned options that will be included on the registration form.

As we all know, San Diego is a beautiful, but expensive, location for a reunion.  But, I think well worth our effort!  However, to help with the costs of this reunion, I am pleased to announce that we are planning to subsidize every registration.  Our plan is to charge a $125 registration for each person.  That will help us pay for busses, the reception, food, etc.  The Big Safari Association is then planning to provide up to $200 per registration to subsidize costs of rooms, golfing, dinner cruise, or other events.  The final subsidy will depend on number of registrations and our Treasury balance after the reunion.        

Quickly, the agenda is:

Wednesday – April 20 – Registration and Board Meeting

Thursday – April 21 – General Atomics Tour and Lunch, Evening Ice Breaker Reception.  Transportation provided as necessary.

Friday – April 22 – Golf, Downtown Excursions, Hornblower Dinner Cruise.  Charter Bus transportation provided.

Saturday – April 23 –  Association Membership Meeting in the morning and Reunion Banquet in the evening.

We have contracted with Hilton La Jolla, and room rates for the event will be $199 per night plus resort fee.  The cost of the dinner cruise will be $100 per person, and golfing greens fees at Torrey Pine are $263.  The cost of the dinner banquet will be based on the meal ordered, but ranges from $93 – $117.  This price includes tax, service charge, salad and dessert.  We will be going ‘live’ with the registration very soon, so watch for the Big Safari Association email that will be coming your way to announce the registration being open.  Registration will remain open until March 25, 2022.

You are responsible for your own hotel reservation so please make them as soon as possible!
