2017 Region 7 Conference: Cherry Hill Crowne Plaza, Oct 27-29!

Written by Laura Victor on July 9, 2017. Posted in Challenger News

I’ve been sitting on this announcement for a bit, as I was waiting for the hotel to get the room booking link set up, but in the interest of time, as has been previously reported, the Region 7 Conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Cherry Hill Hotel (same location as last year) on October 27-29.

Registration will be $35 per person. The registration link will be available when the hotel link is ready. Once both are ready, we’ll release those links. Until then, consider this a save the date.

See you in October!

USS Justice Picnic: Saturday, August 19th

Written by Laura Victor on July 9, 2017. Posted in Challenger News

The USS Justice has scheduled its annual picnic for Saturday, August 19th, from noon to 5 PM at Tourne Park Shelter, 50 McCaffrey Lane, Boonton, NJ. All members of Region 7 ships are invited to attend our event. Please send an email to me at JusticeOC@aol.com, by August 4th, as to how many people from your ship are expected to attend, in order for us to plan to have enough food and drinks for everyone.

Please join us as we cook up some burgers, hot dogs and various other foods. We’ll be playing various tabletop board games as well through out the day. This will be a rain or shine event as we’ll be having the picnic under the Shelter located in the park.

Further information and directions will be forthcoming, so save the date now and plan for a fun day with the USS Justice.

Thank you,
