Hailing Frequencies Open January 2024

Hailing Frequencies Open logo

Welcome to the year of 2024. There are quite a few things that are coming up for us. First is our annual Seventh Fleet Admiral’s Banquet. While it is called the Admiral’s Banquet, it is really for the Admirals to celebrate the variety of crewmembers. We really are part of a Star Trek family. Normally this is held on the last Saturday of January, however the building that the USS Kelly arranged for us to use was booked up at that time, so we are moving it back one week to Saturday, February 3rd. This is a Uniform or Nice-Dress event for members and their plus ones. This will be held at the Weber County Southwest Library in Roy, Utah and will run from 2-5pm.

At the Admiral’s Banquet, we will be recognizing the members who participated in the 25th Anniversary Bingo. Those that made Bingo and Blackout will receive a special award. This event was a blast to participate in. Most of the photos from this Bingo event were used in the 2024 Seventh Fleet Calendar. If you have ordered a calendar, they will be passed out to the Commanding Officers at the banquet.

If you are interested in being contacted by one of our chapters for membership, please fill out our Online Interest Form. We will then forward it to the chapter that you requested.

Don’t forget to join us on the Seventh Fleet Discord server. Gif-Wars has been very popular as well as sharing memes. The #Spoiler-Zone is where we can openly talk about the latest episodes (not just of Star Trek) without having to worry about spoiling it for someone who hasn’t seen the episodes yet. We also need photos of your pets for the #Porthos-Pals channel. This becoming the new online hangout.
