Razorback Base membership has remained basically steady for
the past few years at 162. Of that 162 members, 97 live within the
State of Arkansas and the remaining 65 are spread all across the
country from Massachusetts in the east, and Washington to the
west. Attendance at most base meetings and or events, average
around 15-30 people. My goal for 2018 is to find out what we can
do to get you in the door for at least one visit to a base meeting or
event this year. With that goal in mind, this past Saturday, the
base meeting was held at Whole Hog Café on Cantrell in Little
Rock, where we discussed and decided on the schedule for the
year. Here’s what was decided on.
First of all, our goal is to minimize the amount of business
conducted at the monthly meetings and make the meetings about
spending time with our shipmates and less about business.
Our next base meeting will be on Saturday 24 February at the
Golden Corral at 5001 Warden Rd, North Little Rock, at 1630.
24 March is a Day at the Races in Hot Springs.
28 April we celebrate the Submarine Service Birthday with dinner
at the Wyndham in NLR, Barbara Schwerman and Wanda Malone
