The second Ammo Chiefs Reunion was great. If you were not there you missed one fine Ammo Occasion. Planning and execution by our Chiefs down in the Eglin area and others who helped was damn near flawless. We managed to raise funds for the Gauvin Scholarship Fund and for the Enlisted Widows Village primarily through our Golf Tournament and the fund raising activities of Dwight Howard and a few of the others who extorted funds out of the local merchants. The golf tournatment made the local news. One of the local car dealerships even offered a brand new car to anyone who shot a hole in one, although no one was able to make good on that opportunity. Another group of our members took a tour to the Armament Labs to get the intel on the latest munitions developments. A hearty crowd of our Chiefs turned seamen and caught a passle of fish served at the Friday evening Ammo Call. Ammo Call was open to any and all Ammo Troops and we managed to get a few of the younger guys from Eglin to show up. It was also a time to renew friendships, break out the war stories and have a beer with old friends. While the Chiefs were at Ammo Call a bunch of the wives made a trip to a local comedy club. While the Chiefs were rather well behaved considering the occasion, the wives came back telling tales of some persons of questionable gender sucking each others lolipops. To avoid any embarassment, no further questions were asked of that particular event. My guess is you had to have been there to enjoy the humor of it all. We also had the opportunity to take a cruise to watch the dolphins and plenty of time just to relax either on the beach or at the pool. On the business side of this get-together, we had our annual membership meeting. Our President, Mark Madamba, again laid out the ten goals he sought to achieve during his tenure as president and talked briefly on what had been accomplished and what remained to be done. At some later time (once I receive them) I'll let John Greer's notes of that event help my failing memory to make sure we have the full story. Mark also surprised some by announcing that he was stepping down as President and turning that office over to Jim Shelingoski. If memory serves me correctly Jim will take over as President on January 1, 2003. The high point of the reunion had to be our semi-formal dinner on Saturday evening. During the dinner we inducted our first honorary members, Col. Jack Elle, Lt. Col. Brian Timmons, and Lt. Col. Bill Swezey. The dinner was followed by live music and a chance to dance the night away. Sunday we had a breakfast and the chance to see each other one last time before the next reunion. By any standard, this reunion was an outstanding success. Thanks again to the efforts our fellow Chiefs in the Eglin area and those from other areas who came down to help to make this event the superb occasion that it was!
