Our hosts, Ken & Gayna Parks, have selected the The Hale Koa on Waikiki Beach for our hotel. Ken has arranged a discount rate of about $135 per night (plus $8 per night for parking). You can see the hotel website and its features here. Here’s some video footage of what it looks like walking around the grounds and beach at Hale Koa
There is no block of rooms held for the reunion. Rather, each attendee must reserve their room a year in advance. One day's rent will be charged on your credit card when you make the reservation. This will take some advanced planning, so be warned! Ken has sent out emails with the details as they evolve. Watch for them!
In addition, only US Military personnel are allowed to make reservations. Each US person, however, can make up to three other reservations for "guests" (e.g., the Brits). In this way, we can all enjoy the low rates at Hale Koa and stay together. If you are non-U.S., please contact a sponsor and coordinate your dates. Sponsors, please let Ken know before you make your reservation, so a list at Hale Koa and the website can be updated.
