Marines, We had to make a change of the venue after running into some issues with the Hilton Garden Inn. I apologize for any confusion. Please be sure to cancel reservations you may have made there. I have deleted that post. Our venue will be the Hampton Inn at Sneads Ferry/North Topsail Beach. They seem very anxious to work with us, and Monroe Stueber Jr. knows the management well, and who doesn't love Stu?
This is closer to the beaches and the Battalion. There is a golf course and a great bar/restaurant, Rick's, right down the road, along with other attractions.
Plan for the upcoming reunion, 27-30 June. Cost per night is $119, tell them you are with the Association (confirmation code 2RB) to get the group rate.


Thank you for your input. After considering your replies and some thought, I pulled the trigger on the venue change. My gut feeling, as well as your measured responses told me it was the right thing to do. 
Thanks to Monroe Stueber for introducing us to Rebecca at the Hampton Inn at Sneads Ferry. I just have a good feeling about working with her and the results it will bring. With the other place, I often had to call and ask why no one was responding to my emails or voice mails. They even put our name on the agreement as the "2d Platoon Recognizance Battalion." That did it for me....
I will post to social media. 
Daniel D. Barton: Please put on the membership website with the link to the hotel:
I am working on the registration process. I think my VP got extended overseas. I hope nothing bad has happened to him. If I haven't heard from him by the end of the week, plan B will go in effect. 
Otis Kerr is on the ground, ready to support. 
PS: I got in touch with SgtMaj. St. Pierre (Ret.) He may be coming to the reunion. He's one crazy Canuck.
