I am so sorry to send this announcement to all of you attending the April Camp Blanding Retreat... I have just been notified by the Post Commanders Office that our April 21 - 26, 2016 retreat cannot take place.  The entire post is now and will be full of soldiers on work-ups for deployment - which has recently just happened.

They have been trying to find a location for us.. knowing that we have approximately 150 attending - however... there is simply no building - classroom - or facility that we can use... they've even looked at putting us in 2 different locations... they are just not available... all are being used for soldiers.  Including all of the lodging.

As we all know - this post is used for our Army National Guard and when they need any of the facility - they have first priority.

We have looked at future dates... and it appears as though our July 28 - Aug 2 date is ok PLUS our September date 23 - 27 for an additional session.  The Armory Building will be finished at this time and there are NO assigned army units to the post during these dates.
We will keep the retreats with the 3 or 5 day options... however, due to the expenses of the remodeled facility we have to have at least 65 to stay for the 5 days  in order to cover the additional daily fees.

For those of you signed up for the April Sale room - you will keep your same numbers unless you decide to NOT be in the sale room.

I'll send more information within the next few days.

I soooooo apologize... Your funds will be automatically transferred to July unless you ask for them to be moved to September.

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support of our troops.

Gloria, Vicky & Heather
