  • Sorry just read the event title...
  • Is this 2017?
  • I am going to Zweibrücken this summer will be there from July 7 through 19. Any messages or requests?
  • If you've already responded to this at the 3 wing brat site, do not reply. Attention: To all 3 Wing Brats.....planning on attending the Oct 11-13 - 2018 Ottawa reunion. We recently had a committee meeting and are in serious negotiations with 2 local hotels with respect to acquiring a block of rooms at fixed prices. The committee would appreciate knowing who/whom would be interested in booking hotel rooms for 2-3 nights. (Ottawa downtown hotel room rates avg 180+ a night) (our rate would be in the 160 range) These fixed rates would remain in effect for all participants from now until the event. The reason we are inquiring is there is a substantial financial penalty applicable to the committee if the minimum requirement of rooms are not filled. We would have a hospitality suite in the same hotel and either of the hotels is within walking distance of all reunion venues as well as all major downtown Ottawa attractions. We realize many of you will make alternate arrangements for accommodations during your stay here. We are looking to hear from ONLY those of you that would be interested in a hotel room in downtown Ottawa (min 4* Star) during the 2 or 3 days. There is no current commitment on your behalf currently, we are attempting to base our room commitment to the hotel on your responses. Please respond only if you will be looking for a hotel room. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
  • yes definitely would like a hotel room

  • I am definitely interested. As my sister Lynne mentioned, we lived in Zweibrucken from 1960 to 1963..
  • My family lived in Zweibruken from 1960-1963. Best posting Dad ever had. Definitely will be attending - can't wait. If you need any help organizing etc. please let me know - i would love to help any way I can. Thanks for organizing this reunion. The one in Calgary in 2004 was a blast. My brother Willaim (Bill) attended that one with me so hoping both Diane and William (Bill) will come home for it. Would be nice to have the three of us Shrubsole's there.
  • My family lived in zweibruken from 1954 to 1957. I and my brother started school there. School was called schonblick school.our last name is waddell.
  • Looking forward to renewing the friendships.
  • Count me in!
  • Zweibrucken Reunion sounds great but 2018 is much to far away when you have already passed your 81st birthday.....
  • Dance competition sign ups being accepted for 2018 Reunion - get your entries in early
  • Kenneth Scott 57 - 59
  • I would definitely love to come. I went to high school at 3 Wing in 1967, returned to Canada and have lived in Germany since 1979. I have been working on a graphic novel of growing up as an Air force brat in the early Cold War '60s and a 2018 reunion of fellow brats would be the perfect gathering to close that journey.
  • Wayne Paton Is this the official reunion site. This AM i searched with term "3 wing" and ended up with a whole slew of sites which inlcuded 2 reunion 2018. Some are public some are private. A little confusing.
  • I will try my best...I will be officially retired for 11 days on October 11, 2018
  • Having moved back east I can' see making it to this one. My brother made the last one in Comox. He had a great time and brought me back a very fine beer mug. All the best. Steve
