Hailing Frequencies Open December 2022
As we reach the last month of the year, we look back with many fond memories. We were able to finally start getting together as a Star Trek family. We were able to attend conventions and club meetings. We are very proud of how this group stuck together and helped everyone out in challenging times. This is part of the spirit of community that we’ve been able to foster.
The due date to order your 2023 Seventh Fleet Calendar is December 18th. This is when your $10/issue needs to be delivered to your commanding officer. Remember that we need to reach a minimum of 50 calendars to get our price (which has not changed since we started doing the calendar 11 years ago).
The 2023 Admiral’s Banquet is quickly approaching. This will be held on Saturday, January 28th at the Richmond City facility in Utah (that we’ve held the banquet in the past). Since everyone liked the Noon start time at the last banquet, we will be sticking with this time for the next event. The USS Valkyrie will be hosting the event and the meal will be in the theme of a cantina. More details will be forthcoming, but mark your calendars to attend. This is one of the few fleet-wide events that we host.
And speaking of the USS Valkyrie, congratulations to Lt. Commander John Paskett who has been named as Acting Captain. Lt. Commander Seth Nielsen is now the acting Executive Officer. Captain Charles Corr is moving into a more active roll helping out the Admiralty with his Fleet Captain duties. Thank you to those leaders who have stepped forward to help out.
And finally, 2023 is the 25th Anniversary of the Seventh Fleet. This is an amazing achievement from the members as most clubs don’t make it to their second year. We plan to celebrate all year long by playing 25th Anniversary Bingo. If you’ve seen Enterprise Bingo from Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, then you may have an idea of what this will be about. The full details will be released before the official start on January 1st. But the titles of the bingo entries are as follows.
