Barons Creek will be our base hotel but there are other options in
many B&Bs if you’d prefer something different.
Friday, Oct. 26 – gather in the Nimitz meeting room in the hotel at 4 pm (change to 4 pm due to earlier dinner reservation ) for a welcoming cocktail party where we will have a cash bar for beer, wine and soft drinks.

excellent restaurant serving German specialties. See their
website here. Note
to the updated registration form including minor entrée pricing
addition of non-alcoholic drink pre-purchase. I’d used an
gratuity % on the original form and learned later that they wanted tea
drinks pre-paid. If you’ve already sent in your registration we
collect from you at the cocktail party. As before, you will be
able to pay for
alcoholic drinks on a separate tab.
Then at 8 PM the Rock Box Theater has a live performance revue with music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. We’ve had nothing but good reports on their show and have reserved 50 seats for classmates that are interested in attending. Take a look at their website here. If you are buying a ticket at the Nimitz Museum on Saturday, show your Rockbox ticket stub and they will give you a $5 discount. Pretty cool, eh?
Saturday, Oct. 27 daytime ...many options for you during the day:
night - Social
dinner at the excellent Fredericksburg
Herb Farm starting at 5:30. See
