Field Trip

Nantucket

III. Trip to Nantucket from Wednesday evening, August 17th through Thursday evening, August 18th.

The cost will be $40.00 cash per person which must be brought to the meeting on August 14th or handed to me on Wednesday evening..

This will help to defray the cost of the ferry,

The squadron will cover: $10 towards ferry, $8 for Wave bus transportation, lunch & dinner.

The high-speed ferry alone costs $55.00 round trip.

You must know how to swim, as the beach is on the Atlantic Ocean.

If you sign up for this trip and do NOT go, you will owe Lt Col Maffei $55.00 as I am purchasing your ferry ticket in advance.
