Heavy Haulers Reunion 2019 Laughlin, Nevada - October 22, 23 & 24, 2019 ---

Hello All! We have a contract!

This is Mike Amtower, I'm heading up the planning and co-ordination of next year's Gathering.

We are setting up the 7th biennial Heavy Haulers Gathering in Laughlin, NV at the Colorado Belle on October 22, 23 & 24, 2019.

Let's make this one the biggest and best Gathering we have had to date.

It has been over 50 years now, (my how time flies!) since the original 463 folks first left SE Asia.

This would involve ALL Heavy Hauler folks from both HMH-462 & HMH-463. Actually, it involves ANY and ALL folks that have ever driven or laid hands on a CH-53 from all eras and any other squadron, Including HMH-362, The Ugly Angels.

We will make every attempt arrange for another Color Guard from Miramar for this event. We've lost Hoot who was always instrumental in getting the Color Guard. We would like to exceed the success we have had in the past. We suggest that everyone consider bringing a guest that might not have attended in the past. All Marines and friends of Marines are welcome, also family members of Marines. Consider contacting your local Marine Corps League and American Legion organizations.

Laughlin in late October has marvelous weather. We donated over $5400 to the Semper Fi Fund & the Army Burn Center in San Antonio after the 2017 Gathering.

The two dinners on Wed (10/23) and Thur (10/24) will be held at $40 per person each night.

We are also requesting a $15 surcharge to help fund the hospitality suite. This charge is only per each squadron attendee, not their guest.

I have reserved a block of 40 rooms at the Colorado Belle at $20/nite and a block of 10 rooms at the Edgewater at $22/nite.

The link to the Colorado Belle/Edgewater is: Colorado Belle/ Edgewater (800) 677-4837

When talking to them, specify the Heavy Hauler name as a code phrase to get the above room rates.

We hope to see a bunch of you there! S/F! Mike Amtower

My address is:

Mike Amtower 1658 Knoll Ridge Circle Corinth, TX 76210-1907

Please make your checks out to me for the dinners and the hospitality suite. Or, for anyone that absolutely cannot attend and would like to send a donation for the Color Guard costs or to the Semper Fi Fund.

You can print the registration form from the link to the left.
