Base Meeting and Events


The submarine force was born April 11, 1900 when the U.S. Navy bought the submersible
Holland VI from John Holland. This year we are celebrating the 118th birthday with dinner at
Shorty Smalls, 11100 N Rodney Parham Rd, Little Rock, 28 April at 1700. We have a room
reserved, and you can order your choice for dinner from the menu. Anyone coming in from out of
town and needing a hotel room for the night, you have 2 choices for Saturday night. The
Wyndham River Front (855) 512-6068, has set aside a block of 10 rooms for $96.00 per night,
but you need to make your reservation before 8 April to hold the $96.00 rate. Also, the Embassy
Suites 11301 Financial Centre Pkwy, Little Rock , (501) 312-9000 has also confirmed that their

This year’s base campout and picnic will be at Lake Dardanelle State park in Russellville on the
weekend of June 22nd 23rd and 24th. I have reserved 2 spots in loop A. Loop A is the same
place we stayed the last time we stayed at Lake Dardanelle.  We will be putting the base pavilion
tent on space 2 and I have space 5. As of today there are still 7 spots available, so if you plan to
camp you need to make your reservation soon. I have attached a link to the State Park web page.
