2022 Big Safari Association Reunion – Save the Date!

Friends, planning for our long-delayed Reunion in San Diego, CA is fully underway.   The new dates are April 21 – 24, 2022.  The theme for this event remains ‘Big Safari Support to the Predator and Reaper Programs,’ and former USAF Chief of Staff, General Jumper, has again agreed to be our Banquet Speaker.  It was General Jumper’s foresight and personal support that was key to Big Safari’s weaponizing of the Predator UAS.   

Due to scheduling conflicts, we will be changing the event itinerary slightly.  At this Reunion, the golf tournament will be held on Friday the 22nd instead of the typical Thursday.  We simply couldn’t get the Torrey Pines Golf Course for a tournament on Thursday.  Instead, on Thursday the 21st, we will be hosted by General Atomics to get briefings on the Predator and Reaper programs, and the early Big Safari efforts to create the systems that they became.  

We don’t yet have specific cost and timing information as these are still being firmed up.  However, we will continue to provide updates over the coming months.  Generally, the following is the Reunion Schedule:

Wednesday, 20 April:   Evening BSA Board of Directors Meeting, General Registration/Check-in

Thursday, 21 April:  Reunion formally begins, Late Morning Tour to General Atomics Facility, Evening Ice Breaker

Friday, 22 April:  0730 Golf Tournament/Morning Alternative, evening Dinner Cruise

Saturday, 23 April:  Morning BSA Member Meeting, Evening Banquet

Sunday, 24 April:  Departures

We hope to see many of the Association Membership at this exciting event!   Please join us!
