26th Reunion

Hosted by
Bob “Driver Mac” McNeese

13-16 May 2010
Crowne Plaza Hotel & Resort

Another outstanding reunion! Although the turnout, in this area of about 200 Headhunters, was only 52 total people including spouses, family and guests, we all had a great time! The reunion was originally set up to be hosted by the Military Reunion Planners (MRP) group, but they had to bow out at the 11th hour due to the small turnout. On site POC Bob “Driver Mac” McNeese, who had early-on volunteered to be our coordinator with the MRP, stepped up to the plate and took over as our reunion host. As you can see by this photo, he worked his buns off, and it showed–the reunion went like clock work, and it was absolutely outstanding! Many thanks go out to Driver Mac from all of us for an absolutely flawless weekend!

Our Host, Bob “Driver Mac” McNeese

Mike Quinlan was our CINC GOLF. He set up our “Headhunter Open” golf tournament at the Air Force Academy golf course–it was great! The course and tournament were absolutely beautiful for the three threesomes that played–despite the 48 degree weather! Thanks, Mike.

1st Place Team (72)

This was JayBird’s last reunion as the “Head Headhunter.” Jim “Tex” Ritter volunteered to take over the reins as the new Head Headhunter taking care of the newsletter, dues, reunions, email, master roster, finances and membership, while Tom “Nogas” Reichert stepped up to take over the Store and website. Many thanks go out to you both for your support.

See you all in San Antonio in the fall of 2011!
