Hello Shipmates, Members and Guests:
The April 2018 USS Gregory DD-802 Reunion will run from April 22nd to April 26th, 2018 and will be headquartered at the Bay Park Hotel located at 1425 Munras Avenue in Monterey California. Their direct telephone number is 831-849-1020, toll free number 800-338-3564. The negotiated room rate for rooms with 1 king size bed or 2 queen beds for Sunday through Wednesday (4/22 - 4/26) is $109.00 per night plus taxes. We have two ADA compliant rooms in our bloc, so be sure to request one if needed. Tax rates are currently 10% for city tax and $2.00 per room per night for County Tourism Assessment. If you wish to arrive on Saturday (April 21), the rooms are available at $149.00 per night plus taxes.
When you call to book, be certain you ask for the USS Gregory DD-802 Reunion special rate. Due to heavy demand for area events occurring in the Spring months, additional nights can be booked at best available rate, which may be an AAA or AARP rate and are subject to availability. IMPORTANT: The USS Gregory Reunion special rates must be booked no later then March 22, 2018. Reservations after that date will be confirmed at the best available rate. Also, when booking your reservation, please verify and make note of hotel's cancellation policy.
Sightseeing activities are planned for Monday, April 23rd and Tuesday, April 24th with Wednesday a day of leisure to spend as you wish. Depending on your interests, possibilities include a round of golf, a whale watching tour, a wine tasting tour, or a short trip to Salinas to spend a few hours touring and lunching at the restored John Steinbeck home.
Please note: Hotel reservations are made and paid for directly with the hotel. For the reunion reservation and activities, please open the Reunion Registration Form, print, fill in and mail with your check as instructed on the form.
We look forward to seeing you all in Monterey!
