2011 - Columbus, GA Reunion

Postby Delta75 » Sun Jul 10, 2011 12:38 pm

Hello Delta Company,

Several of you men have asked to be made aware of which Delta men were planning to attend the Columbus reunion. Charlie Tapp has provided me with the latest list of men who have registered. If you do not see your name on the list below, but do plan to attend the reunion, please register as soon as possible. I know that at least 3 more Delta men had told me that they planned to attend. Capt Quisenberry has registered as Alpha Company instead of Delta Company; therefore, Delta needs at least 6 more men to keep Charlie from winning "our" :D trophy.

Delta Men Registered to-date (13):

Chuck Barr
Darwin Betzer
Ed Fuller
Virgil Havens
Dennis "Doc" Sheridan
Grady Smith
Richard Spekcynski
Charlie Tapp
John Trentini
James Ward
Al Warnecke
Nick Zagar
Vin Zike

Note: The present registration list would have Charlie Company winning the 6/31st High Attendance Trophy back from Delta Company :cry: . Alpha Company is also having a good turnout.

Alpha: 12
Bravo: 4
Charlie: 18
Delta: 13
Echo: 1
HHC: 2

Total registration to-date, to include WW II, Korean, 4/31st VN, and 6/31st VN = 88 men (this includes a 4/31st Medal of Honor family representative) plus 2 Guests. Thus, at present, 90 registrations (does not include wives or significant others).

So if I'm adding it right, there are 50 registrations for 6/31st members going to the 31st Regiment Reunion as of now with about a month to go. Last year about twice that many actually showed up at the reunion out west in Nevada.The largest number to ever attend was at San Antonio 2007, that being the year of the missing cups and the locked doors and the great holdup that resulted in a reported substantial, but never stated, financial loss. That attendance number was 162. The last time the reunion was at Ft. Benning, 2005, there were about 120 there.

Yes Niner.....your calculations appear to be correct. Based on inputs that I received today, we can add 2 more Delta men who say that they plan to attend and will register soon.

No, it does not appear that the 2011 Columbus, GA reunion attendance will approach the 2007 San Antonio, TX reunion number (162 - reunion record), the 2005 Columbus, GA reunion number (120), nor the 2010 Reno, NV reunion number (100+...not sure that a final number was ever reported?). It does appear that it might reach the 2006 Syracuse, NY number (90)...and...it should exceed the 2008 San Pedro, CA number (77) and the 2009 Fort Drum, NY number (51).

Ok....so I charted it. Anything to put off doing my chores.

This year, unlike last, no help from Jerry White, or Tim Miller to promote the reunion and no mention here at my site by me for reasons stated elsewhere. Mary's site seems as dead as the Regiment site in promoting this reunion. It yet remains to be seen what the numbers will be like even though the location should be closer for more former members of the 6/31st than Reno was and they should be dedicating a monument to the 31st Regiment......if it was actually built....which you would think would be a plus in drawing attendance.

Just counting all 6/31st registered as Jerry reports as of today.....if all 65 show up....this graphic should shows the present projected numbers relative to other reunions.

Correction on Reno. Best estimate by those who should know puts the Reno total at 111. That calls for a new chart.

Here are the week before numbers.....passed on to me by the great circle route:

Based on the latest update received from Charlie Tapp:

It appears that there are 130 veterans (not including guests) who have registered. 72 of these are 6/31st men with the remaining 58 being WWII, Korea, or 4/31st Viet Nam.

Here is the latest 6/31st total with the Delta Company men listed by name.

Alpha: 13
Bravo: 6
Charlie: 26
Delta: 20
Echo: 4
HHC: 3

Total 6/31 = 72

Here are my last attempts at visual data....

Except for Charlie company, I'd say the basic numbers show that the Association could use some adjustment in how it does business. The general drift is pretty obvious.
