Preliminary info from Jay Adams
At the membership meeting in Colorado Springs this past September those attending voted to have the 2013
reunion in New Bern, North Carolina. Preliminary planning has already begun.
New Bern is North Carolina's Gateway. It is a picturesque and progressive community situated at the
confluence of the Neuse and Trent Rivers. New Bern is North Carolina’s premiere historic city offering a
great quality of life to our citizens while our guests step back in time exploring and experiencing a
culture steeped in 300 years of history and tradition.
Founded in 1710 by Baron Christopher de Graffenried of Bern, Switzerland, New Bern is the second oldest
town in North Carolina and the first state capital. In a city rich in history, Tryon Palace Historic
Sites and Gardens offers a taste of life in Colonial America.
As we have had no one coming forward to host this event, Jay Adams, our Executive Director has started
the preliminary work on the reunion. The reunion is scheduled for September 10 to 14, 2013. The
reunion will be held at the Double Tree by Hilton hotel in New Bern. Check-in will be on Tuesday, the
10th of September, and check-out will be Saturday, the 14th of September. The details of the hotel
contract have are being finalized, but we have initially blocked out forty-five rooms, and more can
be added if necessary. The room rate is $129.00 plus taxes. The hotel will honor the group rate for
two days prior to the event and for two days after. Reservations can be made by calling the front
desk at (252) 638-385 or at their
web page and enter the group code MCC.
The hotel is located in the historic district of Downtown New Bern on the banks of the Trent River.
The hotel is within walking distance to many specialty shops, restaurants, and historic attractions.
The guest rooms offer amazing views of the Trent River and Downtown Historic New Bern. There are two
buildings on the compound with a variety of room types. Some of the amenities include: seasonal outdoor
pool, fitness center, full service restaurant, live music on the weekends, complimentary parking,
complimentary shuttle service to and from Coastal Carolina Regional Airport, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The hotel is just steps away from the New Bern Grand Marina.
Aside from our normal reunion activities we hope to have a trip to the 2nd Radio Battalion at Camp
Lejeune. Micky Weatherly is our liaison on the trip to Camp Lejeune. More details will be forthcoming
in future editions of the Radio Log and on our MCCA WEB page, www.mccaonline.org.
