Updates on RUAEA Convention 2022
Here are some updates on our exciting 2022 RUAEA Convention in San Diego. Hopefully, you planned or will plan your vacation for that time, October 3 – 9. On Friday night, October 7th, we’ll have a “Fiesta Party” with quesadillas, etc. Saturday night, October 8th, the RUAEA Banquet will highlight “Passport To Fun” with Salmon and Pork Loin as entrées. The cost of the Fiesta Party will be $25 P/P, subsidized by the Alliant Credit Union. The Banquet Dinner will be $55 P/P, a slight increase due to inflation, which we have all experienced at the grocery store. The banquet is a served dinner with salad, entrée and dessert. Also, with your dinner, you will have entertainment and dancing, which is hard to beat this day and age. The Fiesta Party will also include entertainment and door prizes. As always, the Benefits Panel Presentation will be on Friday October 7th.
The Newsletter Convention Issue in June 2022 will have complete information for you. We have negotiated a contract with the hotel that features no resort fee, free in and out parking, and best of all, 2 free breakfast vouchers per room per day. Hotel reservations for the convention are now available; please call (800) 345-9995 or (619) 222-6440. Remember to mention “Retired United Airlines Employees Association” for the contracted discount.
Again, one thing I want to convey is that the Convention is open to RUAEA Members, family, friends, other United Retirement Groups, other airline personnel, in other words - everyone. Be sure to supply anyone interested a copy of the Convention Package so they can properly register.
A few words about this Convention’s tours: You will be pleasantly surprised with our tour offerings this year. All the tours will include a meal, you won’t have to hunt around on your own to find food. There will be 4 tours, 3-day time and one evening which will be Polynesian, with dinner and a show. Watch for a more detailed description of the tours in the upcoming Newsletters. They may seem expensive but they do include food, which is getting costly as you know. The other item is the bus transportation, with an added fuel cost due to the times. There are many attractions in and around San Diego that you can do on your own if you wish.
