Update May 14, 2021: The 2021 reunion has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. We are hoping to set up an online meetup on Saturday, July 17 using Zoom. We will provide more info as the date gets closer. While the CDC released new guidance for vaccinated people, we feel that cancelling is the right decision.
Currently, we do not have anything to announce for 2022. Hopefully, things will continue to improve, and later in the year we will be able to decide what is possible for 2022.
This will be the 42nd annual reunion (the virtual reunion on Zoom for 2020 counts!), and while we are returning to an old favorite (Georgia), this will be the first time the reunion will be in Columbus.
Thursday, July 15 or Friday, July 16 – Arrive at the hotel. Dinner will be on your own, so get a group together and enjoy one of the area’s restaurants. We will have a hospitality room open starting around noon.
Saturday, July 17 – Spend time touring Columbus and the surrounding area. The hospitality room will be available for your use all day today. The Visit Columbus GA site is a thorough source for things to see and do in Columbus.
Dinner plans are in progress, but we normally gather to eat between 5 and 6.
Sunday, July 18 – Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and say goodbye to your fellow Dinglers until next time.
